A $6b buyout for IDT? +7


Nikkei Asian Review is reporting that IDT is in the final stages of talks with Renesas Electronics, which seeks to buy the firm for "well over $6b".  A meeting is projected for the beginning of next week.

With 129.3M shares outstanding, that would value each at a minimum of $46.40, and IDTI shares have risen to ~$44 so far.  To my mind, this is much more credible than the Chinese 13D that surfaced in 2016.  However, given current market pricing and potential regulatory scrutiny, I don't see much point in chasing shares at present.
