Submission + - Novell on the block? $2B unsolicited offer. (ostatic.com)

Red Hat may be the last man standing, with Novell receiving an unsolicited bid of $2B for Novell. According to the post, "After the close of trading in U.S. stock markets on Tuesday, Elliott Associates, L.P., a hedge fund with a significant position in shares of Novell, placed an unsolicited offer to buy the company for $2 billion. Its offer of $5.75 per share in cash is well above Novell's closing price today of $4.75 per share, and caused Novell's shares to rise above $6 in after hours trading. The offer places a high valuation on Novell, and the troubled company will have to consider it very carefully."
