The following table shows the arbitrage spreads for proposed mergers and acquisitions of global companies.
Arbitrage spreads measure the difference between the offered takeover price and the target company's current trading price. Historically, the wider the spread, the more investors doubt a deal will close.
The Target Price is the latest trading price (delayed by at least 15 minutes) for the Target company's shares.
The Offer Price per Share (OPPS) is the amount the acquirer offered for each share of the target company. If the offer terms include a stock component, the offer price per share will fluctuate based on the share price of the acquirer.
All Deal Value, Target Price, and OPPS figures are converted to U.S. dollars.
