Susquehanna initiates coverage on Motorola Solutions Inc. (NYSE: MSI) with a Neutral rating and a price target of $39. The firm reports that they like the amount a cash the company currently has in its balance sheet and sees a potential dividend reinstatement of 2-3% by the board. Susquehanna believes that, "a financial buyer may be interested in taking MSI private as our LBO model suggests that with a 25-30% equity stake ($3.5B-$4B) levered 5.5x-6x, MSI could generate a 15-20% IRR with a five-year exit." They also mention that the company will see core market growth of 5-8% with potential for margins to improve once MSI adjusts its cost structure after the sale of its Networks division.
