Starboard Takes On MedAssets
Jeff Smith's Starboard Value is now targeting MedAssets, the $1.4 billion healthcare company. Its activist campaign is based on getting the company to improve its performance with lowering operating expesnses.
Starboard's price target for MedAssets is between $37 to $46 a share by 2016-end. With that, the company is grossly undervalued and there's an opportunity to not only reduce expenses but also improve capital allocation and corporate governance.
