12:15 EDTRLDRealD rallies after receiving takeover bid, analysts say price too low
Shares of RealD (RLD) are surging after activist investment firm Starboard Value offered to buy the company for $12 per share. Two research firms wrote that Starboard's offer for RealD was too low. RealD licenses technology that is used to create 3D motion pictures and alternative 3D content. WHAT'S NEW: Starboard Value offered to buy RealD for $12 per share, after raising its stake in the tech company to 9.9% from 9.1%. The offer represented a premium of 29% over yesterday's closing price for the stock of $9.27, Starboard noted. RealD said this morning that it would consider the offer. ANALYST REACTION: Piper Jaffray analyst James Marsh, noting that he has a $15 price target on RealD, said he "might disagree with" the price offered by Starboard, but does agree with Starboard that the shares are undervalued. Starboard is likely to raise its offer and RealD's stock has reached a good entry point, Marsh contended. He kept an Overweight rating on the shares. Similarly, B. Riley analyst Eric Wold wrote that a purchase price of $12 per share would be "a steal," and other bidders may emerge or the offer may rise. Dolby (DLB) and IMAX (IMAX) could benefit from an acquisition of RealD, Wold stated. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, RealD jumped 28% to $11.88.
