Is Transat even allowed to entertain offers right now? Sounds like bargaining in bad faith.

Oh ya. And the under funded real estate company wants the Quebec government to fund the deal. Nice!

More serious an offer than I thought.

real estate developer and owner in Quebec proposes the acquisition of all issued and outstanding voting shares (the “Shares”) of Transat AT Inc. (TSX: TRZ) (“Transat” or the “Company”), at a price of $14.00 cash per Share (the “Offer Price”) based on a deal value exceeding $1B, including substantial off balance sheet debt which we estimate between $1.1B and $1.2B.

Looks like one of Transats current partners in Mexico doesn’t want to lose their partner.

Upon closing of the Transaction, TM Grupo Inmobiliario (“TM”), the largest residential and leisure real estate developer in Spain and preferred hotel supplier of Transat in Mexico, shall contribute, in exchange for a minority equity stake in Transat, approximately $15,000,000 in cash and roll-over its three operating hotels in Mexico with approximately 1,000 rooms under the well-established banner The Fives Hotels and Residences into Transat’s platform (the “TM Roll-Over”) thereby immediately generating approximately $15,000,000 of EBITDA for Transat;

I believe AT has the right to walk, without penalty, if an unsolicited offer beat the AC offer by a dollar. The thing is this offer may be worth far more than a dollar when considering the entire offer. I’m just going by the article but it says the offer is worth 1 Billion vs AC’s offer of 520m.

Transat would have to pay the penalty if AC matches the offer and is rejected.
The difference in your numbers is $520 million for the company + the debt = the $1 billion sum.

The acquiring firm's cost is both debt + equity of the acquired firm. AC can't buy Transat and not assume their debt. How would that work?

This is the statement that has me wondering what it exactly means.

I believe aircraft leases are typically kept off balance sheet.

True but there has to be reserves for the mtce of the A/C and engines , prior to the A/C being returned at the end of the leases.

If anyone thinks a dollar a share is going to stop Calin if he really wants AT and the planes/pilots/routes, I have a bridge to sell you.

Share holders would have to approve the AC offer.

Some might want to take the highest one as they will end up with more money.

There is zero point participating in a bidding war from AC perspective. They will wait and then match/beat or hold their offer at deadline.

But your right the shareholders only care about $

If they weren't shook by the other offer they never would have addressed it in the press release about why their offer is better.

There is no assurance that the transaction will be completed as described in this news release or at all.

I don’t think he wants it that bad, he just doesn’t want certain others to have it. If it’s deemed that an airline owned by a real estate firm poses no credible threat then their offer could come as a relief. AC now has the opportunity to save a half a billion dollars and whatever ongoing internal friction that would have caused. It will be interesting to see what happens next.
