Aviat Networks seeks to acquire Ceragon Networks for $2.80 per share. That’s a roughly 34% premium compared to the stock’s closing price on Monday. It’s also worth mentioning that Aviat Networks is the third-largest shareholder of CRNT stock with a 5% stake in the company.
Aviat Networks also notes that it’s willing to change this offering to include a portion of it as AVNW stock. It says this would allow current CRNT shareholders to benefit from the upside potential the two companies would have.
It’s worth noting there’s more to this offering than just a simple acquisition deal. Aviat Networks has been unsatisfied with the current management team at Ceragon Networks and is seeking change.
This saw the company suggesting the expansion of Ceragon Networks’ Board of Directors. It wants to bump the number of members up to nine from seven. To go along with that, it’s seeking the removal of three current directors and has suggested five new directors for the Board.
