Siris Capital, Evergreen Coast Capital to acquire Travelport at $15.75 per share

Travelport announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by affiliates of Siris Capital and Evergreen Coast Capital in an all-cash transaction valued at approximately $4.4B. Evergreen is the private equity affiliate of Elliott Management. Under the terms of the agreement, Siris and Evergreen will acquire all the outstanding common shares of Travelport for $15.75 per share in cash. The board of Travelport unanimously approved the agreement and recommended that shareholders vote in favor of the transaction. Elliott and its affiliates have agreed to vote the common shares owned by them in favor of the transaction. Travelport may actively solicit alternative acquisition proposals from third parties during a "go-shop" period from the date of the agreement through January 23, 2019. Travelport will have the right to terminate the agreement to enter into a superior proposal subject to the terms and conditions of the agreement. There is no assurance that this process will result in a superior proposal. Travelport does not intend to disclose developments with respect to the solicitation process unless and until the company determines such disclosure is appropriate. The proposed transaction is currently expected to close in Q2 of 2019 and is subject to customary closing conditions, including approval by Travelport shareholders and receipt of required regulatory approvals. The transaction is not subject to any financing condition. Upon the completion of the transaction, Travelport will become a privately held company and Travelport common shares will no longer be listed on any public market. Travelport's headquarters will remain in Langley, U.K.

Travelport should sell eNett in near future, says Deutsche Bank
eNett could be valued at $1B and Travelport (TVPT) could use the proceeds from a divestiture for an accelerated share repurchase or potentially lower the equity required to take the company private, Deutsche Bank analyst Ashish Sabadra tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes Travelport is not being valued on a sum-of-the-parts basis and that it is not given credit for the accelerated growth in eNett. Given the "rich valuation for high-growth payment assets," Travelport should sell eNett in the near future, Sabadra contends. The analyst believes an acquisition of eNett could potentially complement Wex's (WEX) Travel and Corporate payments offering and could also be synergistic with Fleetcor's (FLT) corporate payment business. Sabadra has a Buy rating on Travelport with a $25 price target.

Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Ford (F) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at Piper Jaffray with analyst Alexander Potter saying that while stock's valuation still appears low, relative to other stocks he covers, he's less convinced that Ford "can find compelling revenue drivers to offset secular threats." 2. aTyr Pharma (LIFE) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Citi with analyst Joel Beatty saying a lack of clinical data and early stage of understanding for lead agent ATYR1923 create a low probability of success. 3. ClearOne (CLRO) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at B. Riley FBR. 4. Travelport (TVPT) downgraded to Neutral on valuation at BofA/Merrill with analyst John King citing relative valuation. 5. W&T Offshore (WTI) downgraded to Sell from Hold at KLR Group with analyst Gail Nicholson citing the stock's out-performance of the SPDR Oil Exploration and Production Fund (XOP) by about 54% over the last month.
