What Top Investors Knew Early about these Spinoffs – Metso, Vivendi, Kering, Sanofi, United Technologies – TSR (The Spinoff Report®) Business Wire NEW YORK & LONDON -- April 1, 2014 Huge valuation recovery in stocks over the last few years along with a continued market volatility outlook for 2014 means multiple stock catalysts exist in a hidden number of companies. Findings within the latest Break-Up valuation study by leading global catalyst investment research specialists, TSR, has revealed and shortlisted north of 100 companies, from all sectors and market capitalizations above $4bn, that would generate better value for shareholders by breaking up. “It’s never been done before now,” comments Ryan Mendy of TSR. “From over 1,500 leading companies above $4bn, we have quantitatively and technically analyzed the value that can be potentially unlocked, many of which are prime M&A candidates,” he continued. To enquire about the potential break-up study, go to www.spinoffreport.com/contact-us M&A Growth Today, Weir Group, the Scottish engineering company confirmed its proposed takeover of Metso for more than €4bn (~€30.00 per share for Metso) as it expands its industrial pumps and valves market, adding rock crushers for the mining industry and valves for liquefied natural gas, targeting a broader range of customers. Other than the Carl Icahn backed, activist fund Cevian Capital (largest shareholder, 13.35%) who have gained solid credibility in industrial space and have been pushing Metso to separate for nearly a decade, TSR have been the only advisor both pre and post Spinoff that has significantly urged the strong positives of the demerger to the world’s top investors. Analysis uncovering a misunderstood, high margin pure-play industrial company, especially beaming light on the potential valuation upside from the management changes and potential M&A attraction post Spinoff. TSR ultimately predicted Metso to perform in line with another successful European Spinoff, Vesuvius Plc, which has delivered notable returns to its shareholders since. Coincidentally, this was another Cevian Capital activist break-up. With investors massively sceptical about IPOs, there’s an historic number of newly listed mid-large cap companies due on the key international indices in the next 12 months via a Spinoff transaction, which only means it’s going to be extremely tough on analysts, fund managers and traders alike.
