Kohl's Shares Reverse Higher as Deal Still Alive With Two Bids on the Table

This post was originally published on this site


The board of Kohl’s is expected to review the bids in the coming days, the report added.

Earlier in the year, Starboard Value-backed Acacia Research submitted a $64 per share bid for the company. However, macro-economic factors have since changed due to surging inflation and rising interest rates and a number of bidders, including Hudson (NYSE:HUD) Bay, have been said to have dropped out of the running for Kohl’s.

In mid-May, the company posted dismal first-quarter results and outlook. Sales for the year are now expected to be in the range of 0% to 1% as compared to the prior year. They had seen revenue growth of 2% to 3%.

After trading down over 8% on the NYP report that the deal was dead, shares are now up 7% to $44.
