10:27 EDTDB, GE, TMO, LIFELife Technologies surges after buyout report but analysts cautious
Life Technologies (LIFE) is climbing sharply after The Financial Post reported last night that the company is looking to sell itself by the middle of February for $65-$75 per share, according to unnamed sources. The company, which sells a variety of life sciences products, hired two firms, Deutsche Bank (DB) and Moelis & Co., to facilitate a sale of the company to either a private equity firm or a larger company, the newspaper added, citing documents. Life Technologies stated earlier today that it had hired Deutsche Bank and Moelis to "assist in its annual strategic review." The company added, however, that its board had not decided on any specific course of action. In a note to investors earlier today, Jefferies analyst Jon Wood wrote that Life Technologies is more likely to be acquired for $50-$60 per share in a leverage buyout. Wood maintained a $58 price target and Buy rating on the shares. Meanwhile, Piper analyst William Quirk wrote in a note to investors that the company may be planning a leveraged buyout. Several companies including Roche (RHHBY), Thermo Fisher (TMO), and GE (GE) could look to buy Life Technologies, Quirk added. However, about 43% of Life's revenues are obtained from selling slow growth research consumables, making it an inferior target compared with other companies in the sector that specialize in faster growing next-generation sequencing products, the analyst contended. He maintained a $45 price target and Neutral rating on the shares. Additionally, ISI Group said the company's high debt levels makes a leveraged buyout challenging and that a restructuring or recapitalization is the most likely outcome. In early trading, shares of Life Technologies rallied $6.42, or 11.68%, to $61.51.
