  • 1. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "We are increasing our PT to $50 (in line with current price) but downgrading to Hold in light of LNCE’s pending acquisition by CPB. We believe the chance of a higher, alternative bid emerging is fairly remote given the transaction’s rich valuation (~21x TTM EBITDA) and don’t foresee any significant regulatory obstacles that could potentially derail the deal. We expect the deal to close in early CY 2Q18 as anticipated by mgmt." (2/6/2018)
