Mentor Graphics回应Cadence的并购提议

    (2008年6月17日 俄勒岗,威尔森维尔)美国明导国际(Mentor Graphics)(纳斯达克股票代码:MENT )今天表示收到了来自Cadence Design Systems (纳斯达克股票代码: CDNS)的主动收购提议,提议拟以每股 $16.00美元的价格收购明导国际公司。明导国际公司证实它以前曾拒绝过该项提议。


    明导国际公司董事会主席兼CEO ,Walden C. Rhines说: “我们重新考虑了Cadence Design Systems的提议,分析了提议的收购价格,也考虑到了获得公司合并反托拉斯许可的风险。” “此后,我们得出的结论是:提议的价格不足以支持交易,而且获得管理许可的风险却高到足以影响双方顺利实现交易的程度。由于这些和其它一些原因,我们的董事会一致决定拒绝这一提议。”

WILSONVILLE, Ore., June 17, 2008 – Mentor Graphics Corporation (Nasdaq: MENT) today acknowledged receipt of an unsolicited proposal by Cadence Design Systems (Nasdaq: CDNS) to acquire Mentor Graphics at a price of $16.00 per share. Mentor Graphics confirmed that it previously rejected the proposal.

"As we recently indicated to Cadence, we reviewed Cadence´s proposal and analyzed both the price proposed and the risks associated with obtaining antitrust approval for a combination between the companies,” said Walden C. Rhines, chairman and CEO of Mentor Graphics. "Following this review, we concluded that not only was the price insufficient to support a transaction but that the risks of not gaining regulatory approval were sufficiently high that the ability of the parties to consummate the transaction would be in jeopardy.  For these and other reasons, our Board unanimously rejected the proposal."
