    Barnes & Noble says it did not get any other bids before Elliott's deadline

    Barnes & Noble Inc said on Friday it had not received any other offers from prospective bidders before Elliott Management's "keep-shop" deadline. Elliott, which offered $475.8 million to take the bookstore retailer private, had a provision that allows the hedge fund to be entitled to a payment of up to $4 million if the retailer struck a deal with a third party before the deadline. "I can confirm that we received no other bids before last night's (Thursday) 11:59 PM (ET) deadline," a spokeswoman for Barnes & Noble said.

    Barnes & Noble’s sale starts a new chapter for a troubled chain

    The story of bookseller Barnes & Noble became increasingly dark over the past decade, as branches closed, employees were fired, and various strategies to save the chain in the post-Amazon landscape failed. Today there was yet another twist in the plot: a sale to the hedge fund Elliott Management Corp. for about $683 million in cash. The sale means that the largest surviving bookstore chain in the US will keep its remaining 627 stores open for now (and that the formerly public company will revert to private control).

    Stocks record four-day winning streak after jobs report bolsters rate-cut hopes

    U.S. stocks ended sharply higher on Friday, booking their fourth straight daily gain, after a weaker-than-expected jobs report added to expectations that the Federal Reserve would carry out rate cuts as soon as July. The S&P 500 rose 1% to end near 2,873. The Dow Jones Industrial Average climbed 263 points, or 1%, to finish around 25,983, based on preliminary numbers. The Nasdaq Composite advanced 1.7% to 7,742. The Dow snapped a six-week losing streak. The U.S. economy added 75,000 jobs in May, falling short of the 185,000 expected by analysts. The disappointing data heightened expectations for the Federal Reserve to ease policy, with senior policymakers suggesting this week they could cut rates if the economic outlook soured. On trade, news reports suggested the U.S. and Mexico were making progress on an agreement that would keep the U.S. from raising tariffs on Mexican imports. President Donald Trump also said he was optimistic on the prospect of a deal. In company news, shares of Barnes & Noble Inc. climbed 10.8% after the bookseller said it would be acquired by hedge fund Elliot Management Corp.
