    Novell (NOVL +3.1%) plans to accept bids from potential acquirers this week, and sources say as many as 20 companies - most, and perhaps all, are private-equity firms - have expressed interest. The offers are expected to top Elliott Associates' original $5.75/share.

    Novell (NOVL) rejects Elliott Associates' $1.8B bid to take it private, calling it "inadequate," and saying it "undervalues the company's franchise and growth prospects." Some have questioned whether Novell is really worth that much, but others say it could be worth even more considering its $1.82 billion in assets.

    Novell (NOVL +28.4%) shares are up sharply after Elliott Associates' offer to take the company private for $5.75/share, but some analysts don't foresee other bids and advise to take profits now. “Investors should be set for a long battle, which we ultimately believe will end up at best at a stalemate."
