Recent News & Updates
Hollysys Investors Seeing A Light At The End Of The Tunnel... And It's Not An Oncoming Train
Hollysys has a strong $23/share bid on the table from a group that includes Ascendent Capital Partners and Changli Wang, the founder, former Chairman, and former CEO of Hollysys. Management is late reporting fiscal fourth quarter results, leading me to think they're seriously considering the bid, and the company recently announced two current executive officers are supporting the bidders. A top-level preannouncement from management suggests materially better fourth quarter results than I expected, including strong Industrial Automation sales, and recent awards have been very encouraging. The $23/share bid approximates my estimate of Hollysys' value today and there's no execution risk for shareholders, though it comes at the cost of standalone upside.
