Vantiv announces further extension of PUSU deadline for Worldpay merger

On July 5, Worldpay and Vantiv announced that they had reached agreement in principle on the key terms of a potential merger of Worldpay and Vantiv. On August 1, Worldpay announced that, in accordance with Rule 2.6(a) of the Code, the deadline by which Vantiv is required to clarify its intentions by either announcing a firm intention to make an offer or that it does not intend to make an offer had been extended to 5.00pm on August 8. Positive discussions are continuing between Worldpay and Vantiv. Therefore, the Board of Worldpay has requested that the Panel on Takeovers and Mergers (the Panel) extend the PUSU Deadline. In the light of this request, an extension has been granted by the Panel and, in accordance with Rule 2.6(a) of the Code, Vantiv is required, by not later than 5.00pm on August 11, either to announce a firm intention to make an offer in accordance with Rule 2.7 of the Code or to announce that it does not intend to make an offer, in which case the announcement will be treated as a statement to which Rule 2.8 of the Code applies. This deadline may be extended with the consent of the Takeover Panel in accordance with Rule 2.6(c) of the Code. The announcement of Worldpay's half year results for the period ended 30 June 2017, and Vantiv's Q2 results, will now take place on Wednesday, August 9.

Overweight
Vantiv upgraded to Overweight from Sector Weight at KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Josh Beck upgraded Vantiv to Overweight with a $70 price target. A deep dive analysis into the acquisition of Wordpay indicates a $300M synergy opportunity with $3B-plus value creation, Beck tells investors in a research note. He believes year two of the deal could offer a middle- to high-single-digit percentage earnings accretion. The analyst has a $100 bull case for Vantiv 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.

Outperform
Vantiv shares viewed as good value at Baird
Baird analyst David Koning noted Vantiv responded to yesterday's negative report on pricing and still views the shares as a good value. He admitted pricing comparisons are difficult to assess as client size could be bigger and products could be better. The analyst has also stated in the past that pricing is a mild long-term industry risk, but noted it has been quite stable over the past 10 years. Koning reiterated his Outperform rating and $72 price target on Vantiv shares.
