CSRA confirms receipt of unsolicited proposal

CSRA (CSRA) confirmed receipt of an unsolicited proposal from CACI International (CACI) to acquire all of the outstanding shares of CSRA common stock for a combination of CACI common stock and cash, consisting of CACI common stock based on a fixed exchange ratio of 0.184 shares of CACI common stock for each share of CSRA common stock, and cash equal to $15 per share. The combination of cash and stock is equal to approximately $44 per share, based upon CACI's closing price on March 16, 2018 of $157.45 per share. As previously announced on February 12, 2018, following unanimous approval from the company's Board of Directors, CSRA entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger with General Dynamics Corporation (GD) under which a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics has agreed to acquire all outstanding shares of CSRA common stock for $40.75 per share in cash. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics has commenced a tender offer to acquire all of the outstanding shares of CSRA common stock for $40.75 per share in cash. The Offer is scheduled to expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on April 2, 2018, unless extended or earlier terminated in accordance with the Merger Agreement. CSRA's Board of Directors, in consultation with its legal and financial advisors, will carefully review and consider the Proposal. CSRA remains subject to the Merger Agreement. The CSRA Board of Directors has not changed its recommendation that CSRA stockholders tender their shares of CSRA common stock pursuant to the Offer.

CSRA downgraded to Hold from Buy at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Frank Atkins downgraded CSRA (CSRA) to Hold from Buy but raised his price target to $40.75 from $39 after a bid from General Dynamics (GD). Atkins contends that the deal will likely proceed "in a smooth manner" and is unlikely to be topped, noting that CEO Larry Prior has likely evaluated several options in the context of shareholder value before agreeing to General Dynamics deal.

Citi sees services stocks outperforming after CSRA buyout
Citi analyst Jonathan Raviv expects government service stocks to outperform after General Dynamics (GD) announced its acquisition of CSRA (CSRA) for $9.6B. The analyst notes he has Buy ratings on Leidos (LDOS), CACI (CACI), SAIC (SAIC) and a Neutral rating on Booz Allen (BAH). Raviv, however, can't think of another prime interested in consolidating more services. The analyst also expects Buy-rated Harris (HRS) to underperform today as he thinks there was some takeout speculation baked into shares.

Raytheon remains 'top pick' in defense sector, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst Douglas Harned continues to view Raytheon (RTN) as his "top pick" in the defense space in light of recent Q4 results and progress on the defense budget, which is "more positive" following an agreement in Congress on budget top lines for FY18 and FY19, and publication of a President's budget request for FY19. In a research note to investors, Harned said that while yesterday's announcement of 25% tariffs on steel and 10% on aluminum is negative, most defense contracts should be protected by long-term agreements. Raytheon's business mix, with 40% of revenues coming from missile defense and tactical missiles, looks "most positive," he said, but noted that other defense names, including General Dynamics (GD), Huntington Ingalls (HII), Lockheed Martin (LMT) and Northrop Grumman (NOC), are all rated Market Perform given high valuations.
