Shares of ManTech International Corp. hiked up 14.2% toward a 16-month high in premarket trading Monday, after the provider of information technology services for U.S. defense and federal civilian agencies announced an agreement to be acquired by investment firm Carlyle Group Inc. /zigman2/quotes/200142014/composite CG -0.22% in a cash deal valued at $4.2 billion. Carlyle's stock rose 1.3% ahead of the open. Under terms of the deal, Carlyle will pay $96 for each ManTech share outstanding, representing a 17.1% premium to Friday's closing price of $81.97. The per-share bid implies a market capitalization of about $3.93 billion for ManTech. "Following a comprehensive review of strategic alternatives, our Board determined that this transaction is in the best interest of our shareholders and provides them with the most compelling value maximization outcome, offering liquidity at a significant premium," said ManTech Chief Executive Kevin Phillips.
