Is Satyam (SAY) a Takeover Target?
Check it out:

Shareholder Pattern

Market Capitalization
Valuation Based on Indian Share Price (In INR)

Why is Satyam vulnerable ?

  • Lack of confidence in Satyam board, after the Maytas takeover episode

  • Reputation damage after World Bank barred Satyam

  • Loss of clientele due to the global Recession

  • Lack of promoters control over the company

All the above make a case for a takeover bid; the cash value of the stock is itself lucrative enough to consider this target.
