Anaren shareholders clear buy by Veritas Capital.
10 February 2014 - US microwave component assemblies and subsystems maker Anaren Inc (NASDAQ:ANEN) said its stockholders had approved its pending acquisition by The Veritas Capital Fund IV LP.
Veritas Capital agreed on 4 November 2013 to buy Anaren for an aggregate USD381m (EUR279.4m) in cash. Under the terms of the transaction, Veritas Capital affiliate ANVC Holding Corp's fully-controlled unit ANVC Merger Corp will merge into Anaren, with the latter continuing as a wholly-owned subsidiary of ANVC Holding.
The price of USD28.00 per Anaren share is 12.4% higher than the target's closing share price on 1 November. The offer also delivers a 21.7% premium to the USD23.00 a share unsolicited buyout bid made by shareholder Vintage Capital Management LLC last April.
The deal is not contingent on a financing condition but hinges on certain closing conditions. It is seen to be finalised on or around 14 February, the target said.
Target: Anaren Inc
Buyer: The Veritas Capital Fund IV LP , ANVC Holding Corp
Deal size in USD: 381m
