Starwood Hotels accepts a revised offer from Marriott

The American hotel group Marriott International increased its bid for Starwood Hotels & Resorts, in a face-off with the Chinese insurance company Anbang.

In a shared press release, Marriott International and Starwood Hotels & Resorts have announced "an amended merger agreement" further to the one elaborated in November just prior to the announcement of the union. The new offer raises the value of Starwood Hotels & Resorts to 13.6 billion dollars, versus 11 billion initially. Marriott was obliged to offer a much larger sum in cash for the shares of Starwood Hotels & Resorts: $21 plus 0.8 Marriott shares per one Starwood share (compared to $2 and .92 shares). Marriott's quick response illustrates the strategic intent of the merger underway and is expected to satisfy Starwood's current shareholders  

Marriott had until March 28 to outbid the Chinese insurer Anbang and its associates, JC Flowers and Primavera Capital. Marriott revised its bid upward after the initial offer, increasing it from $76 to $78 for a cash takeover of all 171 million Starwood shares. Starwood Hotels group was then valued at 13.33 billion dollars, surpassing Marriott's offer of 65$ per action (71$ including the the timeshare business), including the part paid in cash.
