10:34 EDTSCHLAnalyst predicts consolidation in educational products space
The shares of Scholastic (SCHL) are climbing after Citigroup wrote that the company will probably be acquired by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMHC). Scholastic develops educational products for children, including books and technology products. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt publishes textbooks used in K-12 schools around the world. WHAT'S NEW: Houghton Mifflin is "very likely" to buy Scholastic, Citi analyst Jason Bazinet wrote in a note to investors earlier today. The assets of Scholastic "fit naturally" with those of Houghton Mifflin, since both companies publish materials for K-12 students, the analyst stated. Houghton Mifflin's reluctance to return capital to shareholders, along with a lack of suitable targets in the K-12 space, further convince Bazinet that the deal will probably take place, the analyst stated. The acquisition would increase the value of Houghton Mifflin's stock to $30, wrote Bazinet, who increased his price target on the shares to $29 from $23. He kept a Buy rating on the stock. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Scholastic rose 1.3% to $40, while Houghton Mifflin advanced 1.5% to $24.
