Offer for Reynolds American 'will need to be sweetened,' says Wells Fargo
After Reynolds American (RAI) acknowledged that it had received a non-binding proposal from British American Tobacco (BTI) to purchase the approximately 58% of Reynolds common stock that British American does not currently own for $56.60 per share, Wells Fargo expects Reynolds to seek $1-$3 more per share from British American. The firm thinks that British American is underestimating the synergies it would obtain from the deal by about $100M. It says that the deal could be approved in the next several months.Wells believes that Reynolds' risk/reward is positive since it expects the offer to be sweetened, and it reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.

Analyst Michael Lavery said British American Tobacco's (BTI) $56.50 offer for Reynolds is a moving target and is now worth $55.50. He said a modest increase is possible but does not believe British American is inclined to raise its offer price.
