Global Payments to acquire ACTIVE Network from Vista Equity Partners

Global Payments announced an agreement to acquire the communities and sports divisions of ACTIVE Network from Vista Equity Partners. ACTIVE Network delivers cloud-based, mission critical enterprise software, including payment technology solutions, to event organizers in the communities and health and fitness verticals. The outdoors division of ACTIVE Network will be retained by Vista Equity Partners. Under the terms of the acquisition agreement, Global Payments will acquire the communities and sports divisions of ACTIVE Network from Vista Equity Partners in a stock and cash transaction valued at approximately $1.2 billion, including a tax asset. Net of the tax asset, the effective purchase price is approximately $1.0 billion. Vista will receive $600 million of Global Payments stock and $600 million in cash as consideration. Global Payments will finance the cash portion with its existing credit facility and cash on hand. The transaction, which is subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals, is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2017. Global Payments expects the transaction to have an immaterial impact on 2017 adjusted earnings per share results.

Global Payments price target raised to $100 from $92 at Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Glenn Greene raised his price target for Global Payments to $100 from $92 as he remains optimistic regarding its organic growth/margin opportunities, driven by technology/software-enabled and international opportunities. Benefiting from robust free cash flow/delevering, Global Payments now appears to have the capital flexibility to resume M&A activity, he adds. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.

Global Payments results should be strong, reaction may be limited, says Baird
Baird analyst David Koning views the long-term risk/reward for Global Payments as good and expects its upcoming quarterly report to be strong. Given the stock's year-to-date move, the analyst does not expect much of a share price move even if results are stronger than expected. Koning reiterated his Outperform rating and raised his price target to $104 from $98 on Global Payments shares.

Hold
Vantiv should be held amid pricing concerns, says SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Andrew Jeffrey recommends holding shares of Vantiv (VNTV) on any weakness surrounding a negative report highlighting the company's pricing practices. The analyst recommends adding to positions in Global Payments (GPN) and First Data (FDC). Vantiv and its Mercury unit have been aggressive on pricing, but the practices are tied to value-added technology, not an effort to confuse merchants, Jeffrey tells investors in a research note. The analyst also feels the accusations are "impossible to substantiate." He adds that Global Payments and First Data have not pursued pricing practices similar to Vantiv/Mercury. Jeffrey has a Hold rating on Vantiv. The shares are down 3% to $63.21 after Capitol Forum questioned the company's "deceptive" billings practices.

Global Payments price target raised to $97 from $91 at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Paul Condra raised his price target for Global Payments to $97 from $91 ahead of Q2 results as he expects "strong underlying trends" reported in Q1 to continue with low double-digit growth potential in its U.S. direct channels, which include the direct relationship businesses and Global Payments' integrated verticals. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares
