  • Near Term Buy Out Unlikely After Nasdaq's Acquisition Proposal (NDAQ)

    Compass Point reported on Wednesday that the proposed acquisition agreement made by global exchange, NASDAQ OMX Group, Inc. (NDAQ) is likely to reduce the chances of a near term buy out. Following Monday's announcement of NDAQ's proposed acquisition of eSpeed from BGC Partners, analysts at Compass Point see the possibility of a near term buy out unlikely. Nasdaq reported on Monday that it has agreed to purchase the business for $750 million, plus residual payments which would bring the total acquisition cost to $1.2 billion. Compass Point reported that there are three main issues with the proposed deal. First, the price of the business is 10.9 times its full year EBITDA. Second, the strategy to construct the Transaction Services business makes sense, but is unexpected. Lastly, the post-closing leverage which is 3 times the debt to EBITDA may cause problems. Looking ahead, the firm has reduced its outlook for NDAQ from $2.85 to $2.79 per share in FY2013. However, for FY2014, the firm has increased its EPS estimates from $3.14 to $3.16. Nasdaq OMX shares were up 45 cents, or 1.61% during Wednesday morning trading. The stock has increased 9% in the past year. The Bottom Line Shares of NASDAQ OMX Group, Inc. (NDAQ) have a 1.86% yield, based on Tuesday's closing price of $27.91. NASDAQ OMX Group, Inc. (NDAQ) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.3 out of 5 stars.

  • Nasdaq To Acquire Treasuries-Trading Platform for $750M (NDAQ)

    In an attempt to increase its exposure to more asset classes, Nasdaq OMX Group, Inc. (NDAQ) agreed to buy electronic Treasuries-trading platform eSpeed for $750 million in cash on Monday. Historically, Nasdaq has specialized in the trading of stocks. However, the volume of this trading has been dwindling for years. The company is now seeking out new asset classes to help diversify its offerings. This acquisition will now give Nasdaq more exposure to the fixed income market. As a result of the purchase, the company will now offer its customers access to fixed income products as well as more trading instruments, CEO Robert Greifeld said. There is a risk in this acquisition, however. The trading of Treasuries is at a cyclical low. The Federal Reserve's quantitative easing program has resulted in low rates and low volatility, making fixed income assets less appealing compared to the stock market. But Greifeld noted that the Fed will eventually stop this program (though the end date is uncertain). The end of QE plus the continued issuance of US debt will boost the market for Treasuries down the road. It seems like the deal is a long term diversification plan rather than an attempt to seek short term gains. Nasdaq is purchasing eSpeed from BCG Partners Inc. The deal, according to Nasdaq, is expected to be completed by mid-2013. Following the announcement of the deal, credit rating agency Moody's said it will review Nasdaq's current Baa3 bond rating for a possible downgrade. Nasdaq shares were down $2.40, or -7.50%, during pre-market trading on Tuesday. The stock is up +28.09% year-to-date. The Bottom Line Shares of NASDAQ (NDAQ) have a dividend yield of 1.62% based on last night's closing price of $32.01 and the company's annualized dividend payout of 52 cents per share. NASDAQ OMX Group, Inc. (NDAQ) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.3 out of 5 stars.
