Mizuho Securities analyst Vijay Rakesh provided a preliminary merger model for NXP Semiconductors' (NASDAQ: NXPI) pending takeover of Freescale Semi (NYSE: FSL), which would create the #1 automotive semiconductor supplier worldwide and driving over $10B/yr in revenues.

"We believe the deal will create value almost immediately as synergies within the first year are expected to be ~$200M with future years exceeding $500M - though we believe it could be conservative," Rakesh

The firm is not changing their Outperform rating and $140 price target on NXPI, but said given the potential for 2017E EPS at $11-$13 with more upside from synergies, a conservative 15x multiple could drive a stock price valuation in the range of $165-$195.
