Royal Wolf Holdings Ltd share price rockets 38% on takeover news

One of the biggest movers on the market today has been the Royal Wolf Holdings Ltd (ASX: RWH) share price.

In afternoon trade the shares of the provider of portable container solutions are up 38% to $1.80.

Why have its shares rocketed higher?

This morning the company’s board recommended that shareholders accept a takeover offer from GFN Asia Pacific Holdings that values the company at $1.83 per share.

GFN currently controls approximately 51% of Royal Wolf through its wholly-owned subsidiary GFN U.S. Australasia Holdings.

The offer is subject to certain conditions including material adverse change conditions relating to the bidder group, the target group, and the market, as well as a 90% minimum acceptance condition.

Whilst the offer is great for short to medium-term shareholders, long-term shareholders may be a touch disappointed with it. Royal Wolf’s shares are down by approximately 50% in the last three years.

5 stocks under $5

We hear it over and over from investors, "I wish I had bought Altium or Afterpay when they were first recommended by The Motley Fool. I'd be sitting on a gold mine!" And it's true.

And while Altium and Afterpay have had a good run, we think these 5 other stocks are screaming buys. And you can buy them now for less than $5 a share!
