Earlier in March, Citigroup highlighted actuarial firm Towers Watson (TW), media conglomerate Gannett (CGI), payments specialist Total System Services (TSS), home retailer Williams-Sonoma (WSM), American Eagle Outfitters (AEO) and Packaging Corporation of America (PKG), as possible private equity buyout targets with market caps in excess of $4 billion.
The team of Citigroup analysts also listed underachieving companies such as Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF), car parts supplier Visteon (VC), Allscripts Healthcare Solutions (MDRX), retailer Saks (SKS), Fuel Systems Solutions (FSYS) and gaming software maker Take-Two Interactive Software (TTWO), as notable small and mid-cap deal targets in 2013.
