The largest shareholder of Epicor on Wednesday took its unsolicited bid directly to shareholders, just one day after the ERP vendor nixed the offer. Two weeks ago, hedge fund Elliott Associates offered $9.50 for each share of Epicor, giving the proposed transaction a $566m equity value and $814m enterprise value. (Elliott says the all-cash bid is not conditional on financing.) Epicor officially shot down the proposal, asked shareholders to wait for its board to review the proposal. The tender offer is set to expire in a month, but can be extended. Elliott, which began buying the stock in June, owns 10% of the equity, plus a slug of convertible notes. Epicor shares closed Wednesday up 4 cents at $6.84.
