First Street Merger Sub completes tender offer for Smart & Final Stores

First Street Merger Sub, an entity controlled by funds managed by affiliates of Apollo Global Management (APO) announced the successful completion of the previously commenced cash tender offer by the Offeror to purchase all of the outstanding shares of common stock of Smart & Final Stores, Inc. (SFS). The tender offer expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 17, 2019. A total of 66,137,575 shares of common stock of Smart & Final, representing approximately 87% of the outstanding Smart & Final shares, were validly tendered into and not validly withdrawn from the tender offer. As of such expiration, all conditions to the tender offer have been satisfied. As a result, all such Smart & Final shares have been irrevocably accepted by the Offeror for payment, which will be made on June 20, 2019. Concurrently with payment for the tendered shares on June 20, 2019, Smart & Final will merge with the Offeror. As a result of the tender offer and the merger, Smart & Final will become a privately-held, indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of the Apollo Funds and Smart & Final's common stock will cease trading on the New York Stock Exchange.

Stephens downgrades Tegna, thinks Dispatch deal makes takeover less likely
As previously reported, Stephens analyst Kyle Evans downgraded Tegna (TGNA) to Equal Weight from Overweight and lowered his price target on the shares to $17 from $19 after the company agreed to acquire stations in Indianapolis and Columbus for $535M in cash from Dispatch Broadcast Group. While he said he likes the free cash flow accretion, increased scale and addition of an Ohio station ahead of the 2020 political cycle, Evans thinks current valuation and the growing scale make Tegna a less likely target for Apollo (APO).

Shutterfly acquisition price 'somewhat disappointing,' says Raymond James
Raymond James analyst Aaron Kessler downgraded Shutterfly (SFLY) to Market Perform from Outperform after the company reached an agreement to be acquired by Apollo Global (APO), saying that while the deal was largely anticipated, he is "somewhat disappointed" in the lower-than-expected acquisition price. He feels the price likely reflects uncertainty around Shutterfly's core organic growth and level of synergies with Lifetouch.

Sector Weight
Shutterfly downgraded to Sector Weight at KeyBanc
As previously reported, KeyBanc analyst downgraded Shutterfly (SFLY) to Sector Weight from Overweight after the company board agreed to the proposed acquisition by Apollo Global (APO). The analyst thinks Apollo can move quickly to monetize synergies, particularly with synergies from Snapfish. Given that Shutterfly ran a public and complete process, the stock should move to the proposed deal price, he contends.

Shutterfly downgraded to Hold at SunTrust on Apollo bid
As previously reported, SunTrust analyst Youssef Squali downgraded Shutterfly (SFLY) to Hold from Buy with an unchanged price target of $57 after the company's board agreed to be acquired by Apollo Global (APO). The analyst states that the probability of a competitive bid is "low", with the board having run a "comprehensive process" that included 40 potential buyers. Squali further cites the absence of a go-shop provision in the bid as well as a "nominal" $51M break-up fee that Shutterfly would be required to pay to Apollo.
