Rent-A-Center names J.V. Lentell as Chairman of Board of Directors

On December 6, the Board of Directors of Rent-A-Center appointed J.V. Lentell as Chairman of the Board of Directors. Lentell joined the Rent-A-Center Board in 1995. During his service on the Rent-A-Center Board, including as Lead Director from April 2009 until January 2014, Lentell has demonstrated clear and effective leadership to the Board and the company's management. Lentell's service on the Board's committees during his tenure provides him with a deep understanding of the company and its growth, which the company believes contributes a useful frame of reference in the context of Board deliberations.

Loop Capital still sees no likely strategic buyers for Rent-A-Center
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba reiterates a Sell rating on Rent-A-Center with an $8 price target after the company declined Vintage Capital's offer to enter into a due diligence exclusivity agreement. The analyst continues to believe there are no likely strategic acquirers for Rent-A-Center and that a going private transaction is an "increasingly remote possibility" given the company's already high leverage and weakening performance. An indication of interest is a "far cry from actually making a definitive offer," Chukumba points out. He believes that absent a sale, the company has little chance of reaching its 2018 and 2019 financial targets.

Aaron's upgraded to Buy from Hold at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba upgraded Aaron's (AAN) to Buy with an unchanged price target of $42. Progressive's "strong" growth is likely to continue as the company benefits from Rent-A-Center's (RCII) "ongoing travails," Chukumba tells investors in a research note. The analyst also believes the SEI acquisition will drive improved results in the Aaron's Business division and that the Q3 miss is not as bad as it looks.

Loop keeps Sell on Rent-A-Center, sees Vintage provision as 'non-starter'
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba maintains his Sell rating on Rent-A-Center after shareholder Vintage Capital disclosed a second takeover offer to the company of $13 per share, as he believes the provision that the company not disclose proprietary information to future competitors is a non-starter since the board has a fiduciary responsibility to maximize shareholder value. He also questions how Vintage Capital would be able to finance a Rent-A-Center going private transaction. Chukumba keeps an $8 price target on Rent-A-Center shares.

Rent-A-Center exploring strategic alternatives not a panacea, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba maintains his Sell rating and $8 price target on Rent-A-Center following the company's Q3 miss on top and bottom line. Chukumba adds that the announcement to explore strategic alternatives is not a panacea for shareholders, contending that there are no likely strategic suitors and the company is already far too levered for a going private transaction.
