Power-One's (PWER +56.8%) deal with ABB includes a "no shop" agreement and $20M breakup fee, and is supported by P-E firm Silver Lake (Power-One's biggest shareholder), says Stifel, which doubts a higher bid will arrive. Stifel notes Power-One's power supplies and solar inverters complement ABB's power control/quality offerings, and argues "the traditional inverter industry is facing a shakeout," as price/margin pressure, competition, and technology changes take their toll. Inverter vendor Enphase Energy (ENPH +4.7%) is up in sympathy.
