M&T Bank Corporation (NYSE:MTB) acquires Hudson City Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ:HCBK) in an all-stock transaction for $3.7 billion. Under the terms, each share of Hudson City will be worth 0.08403 shares of M&T, which comes to $7.22 per share for HCBK, marking a 12.1 percent windfall to its Friday close.
International Business Machines Corporation (NYSE:IBM) buys HR software vendor Kenexa Corporation (NASDAQ:KNXA) for the price of $1.3 billion, or $46 a share, making for a 42 percent premium to Kenexa’s close on Friday.
