Comtech to acquire Gilat Satellite Networks for 10.25 per share

Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (CMTL) and Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd. (GILT) jointly announced that Comtech has agreed to acquire Gilat in a cash and stock transaction for $10.25 per Gilat ordinary share of which 70% will be paid in cash and 30% in Comtech common stock, resulting in an enterprise value of approximately $532.5 million. Founded in 1987 with its headquarters in Israel, Gilat is a worldwide leader in satellite networking technology, solutions and services with market leading positions in the satellite ground station and in-flight connectivity solutions markets and deep expertise in operating large network infrastructures. Based on Comtech's fiscal year 2019 actual results and Gilat's trailing twelve-month results through June 30, 2019, on a pro-forma basis, Comtech would have reported approximately $926.1M of revenue with Adjusted EBITDA of approximately $130.2M The combined companies would employ approximately 3,000 people and offer best-in-class satellite technology, public safety and location technology and secure wireless solutions to commercial and government customers around the world. Fred Kornberg, Chairman of the Board and CEO of Comtech, said, "I am excited to have reached this agreement with Gilat and believe this combination is beneficial to the stakeholders of both companies. The acquisition better positions Comtech to take advantage of key marketplace trends, particularly the growing demand for satellite connectivity and the enormous long-term opportunity set that is emerging in the secure wireless communications market. I believe that the combination of accelerating satellite connectivity demand and the increasing availability of low-cost satellite bandwidth, makes this a perfect time to unify Comtech and Gilat's solutions and offer our combined customers best-in-class platform-agnostic satellite ground station technologies. Gilat is an exceptional business that has developed extraordinary technology and has a well-respected product portfolio supported by strong research and development capabilities. I welcome Gilat's entire talented workforce to the Comtech family." Dov Baharav, Chairman of the Board of Gilat, said, "The Gilat Board of Directors and management believe this highly strategic combination is compelling. It is an excellent outcome for our shareholders who receive both cash and an equity interest in a strong company with a broader range of products and the benefits of combined expertise and resources that is well positioned to create future value against a highly favorable industry backdrop. I have long admired Comtech's commitment to technology leadership and I firmly believe that employees will have expanded opportunities for career development. No doubt, the future will be very bright for Comtech and Gilat and all of our stakeholders."

Shares of Tesla (TSLA)…

Shares of Tesla (TSLA) are on the rise in after-hours trading after the car maker reporting production and deliveries for the first quarter. WHAT'S NEW: Tesla said it produced nearly 103,000 vehicles and delivered roughly 88,400 vehicles in the quarter, which is its "best ever" Q1 performance. Tesla noted that Model Y production started in January and deliveries began in March, "significantly" ahead of schedule. "Our delivery count should be viewed as slightly conservative, as we only count a car as delivered if it is transferred to the customer and all paperwork is correct," the company said. "Final numbers could vary by up to 0.5% or more. Tesla vehicle deliveries represent only one measure of the company's financial performance and should not be relied on as an indicator of quarterly financial results, which depend on a variety of factors, including the cost of sales, foreign exchange movements and mix of directly leased vehicles." WHAT'S NOTABLE: Earlier today, Jim Chanos of Kynikos Associates said that Tesla remains a "maximum short" position at his firm, adding that the short continues to be one of his "favorite" positions. Chanos said that while Tesla is not an insolvency story, it "has a market cap," and that it likely won't have 1M robotaxis this year as promised. PRICE ACTION: After closing the regular trading session down 5.63%, Tesla shares are up over 20% in after-hours trading.
