Hedge Funds Make Big on Tekelec $TKLC

Tekelec (TKLC) shares rose 14.04% in trading on Monday. According to Reuters, the increase came on the realization that “the Siris Capital-led private equity takeover of network technology provider Tekelec could attract other suitors, as the $780 million deal potentially undervalues the company’s new router product line.” TKLC share prices rose from $9.90 at close on Friday to finish Monday at $11.29 a share.
