Electro Scientific shareholders approve merger pact with MKS Instruments

Electro Scientific Industries, Inc. (ESIO) announced that at a Special Meeting of Shareholders held earlier today, ESI shareholders voted to approve the previously announced definitive merger agreement with MKS Instruments (MKSI). Upon consummation of the transaction, ESI shareholders will receive $30.00 per share, in cash, for a total of approximately $1B. All necessary regulatory and shareholder approvals are now complete, and subject to the satisfaction of certain remaining customary closing conditions, the transaction is expected to close in early February 2019. Upon the closing of the transaction, trading of ESI's shares on NASDAQ will cease.

MKS Instruments price target lowered to $100 from $125 at Benchmark
Benchmark analyst Mark Miller noted that MKS Instruments had a mixed Q3 report, with better than expected earnings and weaker than expected revenue, and also issued worse than expected Q4 guidance. Miller, who expects improvements by mid-2019, keeps a Buy rating on MKS shares but lowered his price target to $100 from $125 following the report and guidance.

MKS Instruments price target lowered to $112 from $135 at KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Weston Twigg lowered his price target for MKS Instruments to $112 from $135 saying the company posted "good" Q3 results, but soft Q4 guidance on rapidly softening semiconductor demand. For investors waiting for a bottom, it could be close, he contends, adding that its non-semiconductor business is performing relatively well, which could offer some downside protection. Twigg reiterates an Overweight rating on the shares on good long-term growth and profit opportunities.
