Aixtron says CFIUS opposes Grand Chip deal on national security concerns

Aixtron announced that the investigation period for the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, or CFIUS, to review the tender offer by Grand Chip Investment GmbH from a U.S. national security perspective lapsed on November 17, 2016 at midnight EST. CFIUS did not issue a close-out letter, but rather informed GCI and AIXTRON that, from CFIUS' perspective, there are unresolved U.S. national security concerns regarding the proposed transaction. CFIUS informed the parties that it plans to recommend to the U.S. President that the transaction be prohibited based on CFIUS' conclusion that there would be no reasonable way to mitigate the U.S. national security risks perceived by CFIUS on the basis of the mitigation proposals submitted by the parties to date. As a consequence thereof, CFIUS recommended the parties request withdrawal of their notice and abandon the entire transaction. Both, GCI and AIXTRON have decided not to follow such recommendation as a result of which the matter has been referred to the U.S. President for decision in line with CFIUS statutes. Under the CFIUS statute, the U.S. President must render his decision to block or allow the proposed transaction within 15 calendar days. GCI and AIXTRON plan to continue to actively engage in further discussions to explore means of mitigation that may be amenable to CFIUS or the U.S. President to resolve outstanding U.S. national security concerns or to take other alternative measures that could allow the parties to proceed with the transaction.

Aixtron downgraded to Equal Weight on order cancellation at Morgan Stanley
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley downgraded Aixtron to Equal Weight from Overweight. Analyst Andrew Humphrey said a large order by customer San'an for new generation LED tools raises questions on Aixtron's long-term positioning. Furthermore, global industry conditions remain weaker than anticipated and higher productivity of new tools could result in further demand declines in 2016, the analyst wrote. Humphrey lowered 2015 and 2016 estimates in line with guidance.

Aixtron bid mild negative for Veeco, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Paul Coster views a Chinese Investment fund's bid to acquire Aixtron (AIXG) as a mild negative for peer Veeco (VECO). Aixtron's operations are unlikely to be disrupted by the potential deal while its relationships with customers in the Asia Pacific region, particularly China, may be strengthened, the analyst contends. Coster keeps a Neutral rating on Veeco.
