14:39 EDTAROAeropostale by-law change suggests potential for 'go-private' deal, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Richard Jaffe noted that Aeropostale amended and restated its by-laws earlier this week so that any director, or the entire board, may be removed, with or without cause, by the holders of a majority of the shares, which he believes makes the possibility of the company getting bought out, perhaps in a "go-private" deal led by Sycamore, both easier and more likely. However, Jaffe keeps a Hold rating on shares as he believes the stock is fully valued based on its fundamentals.
