KKR announces tender offer to acquire CK, Nissan to tender its 41% CK stake

Global investment firm KKR (KKR) and Nissan (NSANY) announced that CK Holdings, an entity owned by investment funds controlled by KKR, intends to make a tender offer for all the existing shares of Japanese automotive components manufacturer Calsonic Kansei Corporation. In connection with the tender offer, the Bidder has entered into a tender agreement with Nissan, the lead shareholder in CK, to acquire in the tender offer Nissan's approximate 41% holding of CK's common shares. The tender offer is planned to be commenced subject to the fulfillment of certain conditions in the Tender Agreement and the Bidder currently expects to commence the tender offer in February 2017. Under the terms of the announced offer under Japan's Financial Instruments and Exchange Act, among other terms, the Bidder will commence the tender offer to acquire the outstanding common stock of CK. In light of the proposal from the Bidder, CK plans to issue a special dividend conditioned upon the success of the tender offer with a record date of the calendar day prior to the tender offer commencement date. The Bidder plans to pay cash consideration of JPY 1,860 per common share to the existing shareholders of CK. However, in the event that the Special Dividend is declared prior to the tender offer commencement date, then the Bidder will calculate the offer price for the tender offer by deducting the per share value of the Special Dividend from this planned price of JPY 1,860 per common share. Please note that, although the dividend amount per share for the Special Dividend is expected to be approximately JPY 570, provided that the maximum amount shall be JPY 570, as of today, the final dividend will be determined based on the procedures under the Companies Act. Since the number of CK's outstanding issued shares is equal to 267,882,277, excluding treasury shares, the consideration price values CK at approximately JPY498.3B based on the Proposed Price.

DOWNGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Netflix (NFLX) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Needham with analyst Laura Martin saying that the U.K.'s "Brexit" adds risk that decelerating U.K. and EU GDP growth will slow the company's subscriber growth or accelerate its churn rates. 2. Harley-Davidson (HOG) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Baird with the firm citing valuation amid unconfirmed rumors that KKR (KKR) is interested in acquiring the company. 3. Cirrus Logic (CRUS) and Skyworks (SWKS) downgraded to Sector Weight from Overweight at Pacific Crest with analyst Michael McConnell citing iPhone 7 concerns putting the estimates of both companies at risk. The analyst expects a 15%-20% decline in iPhone 7 shipments in the second half of 2016. 4. Cerner (CERN) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Raymond James with analyst Nicholas Jansen citing balanced risk/reward and expectations for Q2 results to return to "normalcy." 5. Hershey (HSY) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus with analyst David Coleman citing valuation following takeover overtures by Mondelez (MDLZ).
