Edgewell Personal Care remains takeout target, says RBC Capital
After Kraft Heinz (KHC) confirmed it had approached Unilever (UN, UL) with a merger proposal, RBC Capital analyst Nik Modi says the news come as a surprise, but does not warrant a change in his Edgewell Personal Care (EPC) takeout thesis. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating on the latter's shares, with a $105 price target, on improving margin and revenue profile and the prospects of a takeout in the next 12-16 months, with Unilever as one of the more likely buyers. Other potential suitors include Kimberly-Clark (KMB), Beiersdorf, Henkel, Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Colgate-Palmolive (CL), Church & Dwight (CHD), L'Oreal (LRLCY), and Kao, he adds.

Codman acquisition strengths Integra neurosurgery position, says Oppenheimer
Following the announcement that Integra LifeSciences (IART) acquired the Codman Neurosurgery Business from Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Oppenheimer analyst Steven Lichtman says the addition brings complementary products to further strengthen the former's position in the neurosurgery market. Additionally, the analyst notes that the deal also expands Integra LifeSciences' international revenue and adds to the company's international infrastructure that will be supportive primarily of its neurosurgery business, but will also help in the international build-out of other segments. He reiterates an Outperform rating on Integra LifeSciences' shares.
