TUI shares rise following takeover rumours

Shares in TUI Travel have risen following speculation of a takeover by its parent company.

17 January 2012

Shares in TUI Travel rose 3.2p to reach 164.9p on the back of speculation that German parent company TUI AG intends to purchase the 45.5 per cent of the enterprise that it does not already own, a process that could require merger and acquisition advisors.

UBS published a note, which stated this is an "increasingly plausible" possibility.

However, this potential buyout has been "in the public domain for some time" and there is a low risk that TUI AG will signal a lack of interest, the banking and financial services group continued.

UBS, which has commercial space in at least 50 nations, also added TUI to its watch-list of mergers, claiming takeover rumours have existed about this corporation for some time.

The valuation of TUI Travel offers "considerable fundamental upside", it continued, noting the support of the price is likely to remain.

Rival travel firm Thomas Cook was given a neutral rating by UBS.
