Arris International Shares Up 16% On Report Of Acquisition By CommScope

Shares of Arris International PLC (ARRS) gained 16% in extended trading session on Tuesday following reports of the company's acquisition.

According to CNBC, telecoms infrastructure company CommScope is nearing a deal to buy telecom gear provider Arris for more than $31 a share or more than $5.6 billion.

Commscope could announce the deal to acquire the set-top box manufacturer as soon as tomorrow.

The report says that the deal is expected to give CommScope more scale with a more diversified product base, while it would provide an exit for Arris as fewer customers watch traditional TV from set-top boxes, a major part of its business.
