EDS faction opposes HP offer

0 comments

It seems that fighting against acquisition offers is the trends nowadays. The lastest news is that a faction is trynig to get EDS (Electronic Data Systems) to hold out for more than the $13,2-billion on the table from HP.

A shareholder's meeting is scheduled for next week (30 July), but a group of EDS shareholders is asking a court to order it to be postponed.
Shareholders are set to vote on the HP offer at that meeting.
However, the group believes the board accepted too little – despite the $25.00 per share being a 33% premium on the stock prior to the offer.
