Check out which companies are making headlines before the bell:
Fresh Market — The natural foods grocer has agreed to be acquired by Apollo Global Management for $1.36 billion in cash, or $28.50 per share. That represents a 24 percent premium over Friday's close. Fresh Market shares soared more than 20 percent following the announcement.
Starwood Hotels — Starwood received an unsolicited takeover proposal from a consortium of companies led by China's Anbang Insurance worth $76 per share. Starwood already has an agreement in place to be bought by Marriott, and its board has not changed its recommendation in support of that deal.
Johnson & Johnson — Goldman Sachs upgraded the stock to "neutral" from "sell," pointing to the underappreciated growth potential of J&J's consumer business.
