DigitalGlobe (DGI) Rejects $17/Share Bid from GeoEye (GEOY)

May 7, 2012 6:38 AM EDT
DigitalGlobe, Inc. (NYSE: DGI) commented on the unsolicited proposal announced by GeoEye, Inc. (Nasdaq: GEOY) ("GeoEye") to acquire the Company for $17.00 per share in a combination of cash and stock.

Consistent with its fiduciary duties and in consultation with its independent financial and legal advisors, the DigitalGlobe Board of Directors reviewed GeoEye's unsolicited acquisition proposal and unanimously determined that it substantially undervalues the Company in relation to DigitalGlobe's standalone business and financial prospects, and is not in the best interests of the Company's stockholders. In addition, the Board determined that GeoEye's proposal does not adequately recognize DigitalGlobe's superior track record of financial and operating performance as well as its constellation's greater capabilities.
