PrivateBancorp shareholder Glazer Capital issues open letter to shareholders

PrivateBancorp shareholder Glazer Capital, the manager of investment funds that collectively beneficially own 1M shares of PrivateBancorp common stock, issued an open letter to PrivateBancorp shareholders detailing reasons for rejecting the proposed acquisition of PrivateBancorp by CIBC at the special meeting of PrivateBancorp shareholders scheduled to be held on December 8. The letter claims, among other things, that the CIBC Merger would prevent shareholders from realizing the benefits of the recent surge in regional bank valuations, that PrivateBancorp's board has no choice but to present the merger for a vote by shareholders at the Meeting, that rejection of the CIBC Merger at the upcoming Special Meeting would not jeopardize the CIBC Merger and is the best means available for shareholders to achieve full and fair value, that using traditional comparative valuation methodologies Glazer believes that PrivateBancorp's share price would exceed $50 per share absent the merger agreement with CIBC, and commends ISS for recommending that shareholders vote against the acquisition

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on the today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Diamond Resorts (DRII) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman by analyst Steven Kent after the company agreed to be acquired by Apollo Global Management (APO) for $30.25 per share. The analyst keeps his price target of $32 for the shares. MKM Partners also downgraded Diamond Resorts to Neutral from Buy. 2. Qualcomm (QCOM) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform by Bernstein, which kept a $55 target on the stock. The firm thinks that estimates for the company's September quarter remain too high, due to unrealistic licensing expectations. Bernstein adds that the company has long-term "structural issues." 3. TESARO (TSRO) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Jefferies by analyst Eun Yang, citing yesterday's rally on the company's positive Phase 3 data for niraparib in ovarian cancer. The data were better than expected, but so was the stock move, Yang tells investors in a research note. The analyst prefers a Hold rating ahead of the full data set as well as competitor data in the second half of 2016 and 2017. She lists a potential takeout and competitor data not being as good as niraparib as risks to her downgrade. Yang raised her price target for TESARO shares to $75 from $53.4. PrivateBancorp (PVTB) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Keefe Bruyette by analyst David Long following the acquisition by CIBC (CM) saying he does not expected a competing bid to come to the table. PrivateBancorp was also downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Keefe Bruyette. 5. Spirit AeroSystems (SPR) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo by analyst Sam Pearlstein, saying a charge for the A350 could make multiple expansion difficult. Spirit could be close to finishing a revised A350 pricing agreement that, when completed, could trigger a reach-forward loss accrual of around $200M, Pearlstein says. The analyst lowered his price target range for the shares to $50-$55 from $55-$60.This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.
