F45 Training (NYSE:FXLV) stock is taking off on Friday after the fitness company received a buyout offer from investor Kennedy Lewis Management.

Kennedy Lewis Management already holds a 14.6% stake in FXLV and wants to acquire it for $4 per share. That offer is in cash and represents a nearly 82% premium over the stock’s closing price on Thursday.

Kennedy Lewis Management argues that Mark Wahlberg’s F45 Training would be better off as a private company. The firm claims that this would allow for a “stronger position to maximize its resources and realize strategic value that enhances its operations and supports its stakeholders.”

The offer from Kennedy Lewis Management also has a condition that must be met. The investor is requiring that other large shareholders agree to roll their current equity in the company as part of the deal.

FXLV Isn’t Held to the Offer

This offer from Kennedy Lewis Management is non-binding and the firm is seeking approval from the Board of Directors. It wants to engage with other entities regarding the matter with the consent of the Board.

News of the buyout off has shares of FXVL seeing heavy trading on Friday. As of this writing, nearly 23 million shares have changed hands. That’s quite the increase over its daily average trading volume of 1.8 million shares.

FXLV stock is up 41.9% as of Friday morning.
