    • Following the announcement, Deutsche upgraded LPX to Buy with a PT of $21 ($20 previous): "In a segment legendary for aggressive & destructive 'herd behavior,' consolidation places latent capacity in a smaller number of hands and reduces the risk of too many players restarting too much capacity too quickly ... On its own, this deal looks attractive: ANS has the best margins among peers."
    • DA Davidson also upgraded the company to Buy.
