CRA International Issues Tender Offer

CRA-InternationalInc.-logoCRA International (CRAI) joins the ranks of the many companies participating in a tender offer. The company is offering to purchase up to $30 million of its stock, or between 17% and 18.7% of its outstanding shares, depending on the purchase price. It’s offering to buy at a price between $18 and $19.75 per share. With the stock now at $18.96, after jumping 11% on the news, there’s no risk-free profit here, however, unless the stock drops. With the stock in a long-term downtrend, it looks like many investors may be willing to cash out at the low end of the range.
