M&A Markets Blog: January 2 2018
There is no detail at the moment on the list, just the names. Some are new contenders, others like ITV, are as old as the hills.
However, there will be weekly updates on the M&A Markets blog here at Zakmir.com, with colour and latest developments. If anyone has any further information on the names above, feel free to get in contact. The geographical breakdown is below:
Capital & Counties (CAPC) – Property Development
ITV (ITV) Media
Shire (SHP) – Pharma
Vectura (VEC) – Pharma
Altice (ATC) Netherlands – Telecom
Pernod Ricard (RI) France – Beverages
Temenos Group (TEMN) Switzerland – Software
Blackhawk Network (HAWK) – Payments
Bunge (BG) – Food
Fortinet (FTNT) U.S.A – Cybersecurity
Global Blood Therapeutics (GBT) U.S.A – Pharma
Juniper Networks (JNPR) – Producer / Wholesaler
KBR (KBR) – Engineering
Paratek Pharmaceuticals (PRTK) U.S.A – Pharmaceuticals
Vonage Holdings (VG) U.S.A – Telephony
The list can essentially be regarded as a what would have been described in the old days as “buy on weakness”, as the constituents are all undervalued situations which can be regarded as attractive to potential corporate buyers.
We look forward to ticking off the targets as they happen over the course of 2018
