Global Sources holders approve Bye-Laws amendment, acquisition by Blackstone

Global Sources announced that, at a special general meeting of shareholders of the company held on July 24, the company's shareholders approved (a) the amendment of Bye-Law 152 of the existing Bye-Laws of the company and the company's adoption of the new Bye-Laws and (b) the acquisition of the company by funds affiliated with Blackstone. The parties expect to complete the acquisition as soon as practicable, subject to satisfaction or waiver of the remaining customary closing conditions, including a clearance issued under the PRC Anti-Monopoly Law for approving the acquisition. Upon completion of the acquisition, the company will become a privately held company and its Shares will no longer be listed on the NASDAQ Global Select Market.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Qualcomm (QCOM) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Rod Hall saying while more negative news from the Apple (AAPL) royalty suit is likely, "material fundamental upside" exists from the closure of the NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) by the end of this year. The analyst views the deal as highly accretive. Hall also believes Apple ultimately will want to preserve its commercial relationship with Qualcomm. 2. Motorola Solutions (MSI) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Tavis McCourt saying shares look increasingly attractive based on improved demand visibility that is less economically sensitive than many of its peers, and demand catalysts from FirstNet buildouts that are expected to start in 2018. 3. Entegris (ENTG) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Toshiya Hari citing the recent pullback in shares and maintained a $29 price target. 4. Blackstone (BX) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst William Katz saying the company's intentions to raise a $40B infrastructure fund should be a "valuation catalyst." 5. Cree (CREE) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at JMP Securities with analyst Joseph Osha saying he thinks that the company's new CEO could make positive changes at the company.
