Nasdaq CEO Robert Greifeld is meeting with hedge funds Friday in New York trying to drum up support for his company’s proposal to purchase the NYSE. Nasdaq is joined in that proposal by its partner ICE, but today’s meeting did not include representatives from that company, something noted by attendees.
While the battle over the NYSE rages and we wait for a response from that exchange to the proposed $42.50 dual stock and cash bid from Nasdaq and Ice, it’s worth mentioning that among the most likely outcomes here is that the NYSE doesn’t get bought at all.
It seems likely that in the next 24 hours we will receive Cephalon’s response to the $73-a- share all cash offer it received last week from Valeant. From what I’m hearing, that response could likely include a rejection of Valeant spacer and a plan from Cephalon to seek out parties other than Valeant that would be interested in purchasing it.
