Abbott commences tender offer for Alere perpetual preferred stock

Abbott (ABT) announced that it is commencing a tender offer to purchase for cash all outstanding shares of Series B Convertible Perpetual Preferred Stock of Alere (ALR) at a price of $402.00 per share of Preferred Stock, plus accrued but unpaid dividends to, but not including, the settlement date of the tender offer, net to the seller thereof in cash, without interest thereon and subject to any withholding of taxes required by applicable law. The Offer is being made pursuant to an Offer to Purchase, dated July 17, and in connection with Abbott's previously announced agreement to acquire Alere. The Merger is not conditioned upon, or otherwise subject to, the completion of the Offer. The Offer, however, is conditioned upon the consummation of the Merger in accordance with the terms of the Merger Agreement. The Offer will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on Friday, August 11. If, upon the expiration of the Offer, any of the conditions to the Offer have not been satisfied or waived, Abbott may elect to extend the Offer for any length of time and in its sole discretion, but is under no obligation to do so.

Abbott making progress, says Stifel
After meeting with several Abott senior managers, Stifel analyst Rick Wise says that the company appears to be "making gradual and steady progress across multiple areas" of its medical device business. The analyst heard evidence of positive cross selling trends and the improvement of its St. Jude Rhythm Management franchise. He raised his price target on the stock to $51 from $49 and keeps a Buy rating on the shares.

RBC sees competing bid for Spectranetics as unlikely
RBC Capital analyst Glenn Novarro believes a competing bid for Spectranetics (SPNC) is unlikely and that Philips' (PHG) offer "signals a high probability of an on-time approval." The analyst notes Boston Scientific (BSX) is already developing a drug-eluting stent and a drug-coated balloon for peripheral artery disease and that Abbott (ABT) is integrating St. Jude while also soon closing its buyout of Alere (ALR).
