This Cybersecurity Firm Rejected Multiple Takeover Offers This Year

Jun 15, 2016

FireEye hired Morgan Stanley (ms) to explore a sale but has since rejected at least two takeover offers this year—including one from Symantec—as they were below its expectations, Bloomberg reported.

The cyber security company was looking for offers of $30 per share or more, Bloomberg reported, citing people familiar with the matter.

Milpitas, Calif.-based FireEye shares closed 4% higher at $16.05 on Wednesday, valuing the company at about $2.66 billion.

FireEye's discussions with Symantec (symc), the maker of Norton antivirus software, stopped in early February and its talks with another buyer stalled in late March, Bloomberg reported.

FireEye (feye) and Symantec were not immediately available for comment.

Symantec said on Sunday that it would buy privately held cyber security company Blue Coat for $4.65 billion to ramp up its enterprise security business.

FireEye, which appointed Kevin Mandia its chief executive last month, is no longer actively looking to sell itself, Bloomberg reported.

Up to Wednesday's close, FireEye shares had fallen nearly 23% this year.
