Mitel (MITL) disclosed that it has made a proposal to the ShoreTel (SHOR) board to acquire all of the outstanding shares of ShoreTel common stock for $8.10 per share in cash, representing a total equity value of approximately $540M. This offer represents a 24% premium to ShoreTel's closing stock price on October 17, and a 30% premium to ShoreTel's enterprise value. Richard McBee, president and CEO of Mitel stated, "The business communications market is rapidly consolidating and Mitel has clearly stated that we intend to be a consolidator in this market. We see a compelling opportunity to bring together two market innovators with strong and complementary market footprints, particularly in the U.S. where ShoreTel does more than 90% of its business, in a way that delivers significant value and opportunities to the shareholders, customers and employees of both companies. We are disappointed that the ShoreTel Board has rejected our proposal and refused to engage with us. Mitel continues to believe that the proposal offers ShoreTel shareholders an attractive premium. We remain open to constructive and progressive discussions and for that reason I have advised the ShoreTel Board that our proposal will remain open until 5pm EST on November 20."
