I wouldn't expect a possible hypothetical offer to be at a high premium. Just guessing 15-20% from market 52 week high. That's not high. Speaking of SG & A. It looks to be a driving force in this merger. The cost synergies of this merger look very attractive. Especially a year out. It also gives the private equity firms a safe and cost effective way to bring their lab company public without an IPO.
