Crane Co. said claims made by flow control technology company Circor International Inc. regarding its $45-a-share offer for the company are "highly unrealistic" and show why its all-cash offer is the best option for Circor's shareholders. Crane, a diversified manufacturer of engineered industrial products, was responding to Circor's rejection of its offer on Monday, when Circor said the offer substantially undervalues the company. "CIRCOR's short-term plan, while expected, is yet another set of empty promises," Crane Chief Executive Max Mitchell said in a statement. In May, Crane said it would pay $45 for each Circor share outstanding, which at the time represented a 47% premium. The deal was being valued at $1.7 billion. Then on June 17, Crane said it commenced a tender offer for Circor shares. Neither stock was active premarket. Circor shares have gained 115% in 2019, while the S&P 500 has gained 17.5%.
Last week, industrial products maker Crane said it had begun a tender offer or $45 a share, or roughly $1.7 billion. Crane had made a proposal in April, which the Burlington, Massachusetts-based Circor rejected last month.
Circor International Inc. said Monday it has rejected the unsolicited buyout bid from Crane Co. given that it "substantially undervalues" the flow control technology company, and strongly urges shareholders not to tender shares into Crane's offer. In May, Crane said it would pay $45 for each Circor share outstanding, which at the time represented a 47% premium. The deal was being valued at $1.7 billion. Then on June 17, Crane said it commenced a tender offer for Circor shares. Circor said its plan to accelerate earnings growth, reduce debt and add "significant near-term value" for shareholders would be "far in excess" to Crane's buyout bid. Circor's stock, which was still inactive in premarket trading, has gained 15% over the past 12 months, while Crane shares have slipped 0.3% and the S&P 500 has advanced 7.1%.

(B2, Stable) ("CIRCOR") in a transaction that would be valued at more than $1.7 billion.

The review process will focus on Crane's financial profile, ability to deleverage following the proposed acquisition and potential synergies.

Shares of Circor International Inc. rocketed 43% in afternoon trade Tuesday, putting them on track for their biggest-ever one-day gain, after industrial products maker Crane Co. said it proposed buying the technology products and sub-systems company in deal valued at $1.7 billion. Under terms of the proposal, Crane would pay $45 a share in cash for each Circor share outstanding, a 47% premium to Monday's closing price of $30.66. Crane said the proposal was made on April 30, and Circor rejected the bid on May 13. "While we had hoped to complete a transaction privately, the Board's rejection of our proposal without comment or discussion led to our decision to make our proposal known to Circor shareholders so they can express their views directly to the Circor Board," said Crane Chief Executive Max Mitchell. "We believe that this business, which has great brands and products, has been meaningfully undermanaged for years." Circor responded to Crane's disclosure, saying it rejected Crane's proposal because it determined the proposal was "highly opportunistic, substantially undervalued Circor and its future prospects and did not constitute a basis for engaging in further dialogue with Crane at this time." Circor's stock has more than doubled (up 105%) year to date, but was still down 15% over the past 12 months, while the S&P 500 has gained 4.9% the past year.
