    Navient Rises as Canyon Says It Could Boost Rejected Buyout Bid

    The alternative asset manager -- which was turned down in its $12.50-a-share offer, less than the $14 to $15 a share it had been expected to bid -- said Tuesday that it has “room to raise our price.” The offer, rejected in a letter and press release Monday, represented a 23 percent premium over Navient’s average price for two months, Canyon said. “While Canyon’s bankers initially were hopeful that an offer could be made at $14 to $15 a share, our due diligence raised material questions as to whether that would be justified,” Canyon said in a letter to Navient’s board dated Tuesday. Navient rose 6 percent to $12.43 at 9:48 a.m. in New York.
