Only Mr Bloor could say for sure, but I suspect it's largely immaterial to Triumph.
If the reporter was choosing his words carefully, then Triumph wasn't a very serious target anyway. "Discussions" are very different from negotiations, and the rather broad goal of "acquisition or partnership" is generally code for "we don't have any tangible ideas to bring to the table, but we'd like to get our nose in the tent, look at your valuables, and see if we can sweet-talk you into parting with some of them."
