Shares of newly-listed Anacor Pharmaceuticals (ANAC), which made its debut on Wednesday, were plunging 18% in premarket trading to $4.09. Anacor closed at $5.09 on Wednesday, a modest 2% premium over its offer price of $5.

CPI International (CPII) agreed to be acquired by an affiliate of Veritas Capital for $19.50 a share in cash, or $525 million. The purchase price is a premium of about 35% over CPI's closing price Wednesday of $14.47, and 38% over the average closing price of CPI for the 90 days to Wednesday.
