$122 a share, about 22% premium, closing value 101 and change and expect today trigger heavy scrutiny, the deal was imminent. charlie is on the phone right now. you've been on this breaking this, tell us the latest. >> first, you guys are way too chipper at 5:00 a.m. [laughter] >> the deal is eminent. i think what we did is reporting last night in foxbusiness.com that two sides were engaged in discussions and is that when that hit -- i'd say around 5,
6:00 o'clock last night they decided to come clean with the offer. it's a pretty compelling offer. all cash, $122 a share. you listened to us you made a lot of money last night. here is the one thing, this is going to get a lot of regulatory scrutiny, no deal is done till it's done. it's always a wild card. this thing is going to be played on a trading basis a lot. we can just wait to see what monsanto. they are likely to agree. that doesn't mean the thing is done. i mean, this is really -- this is in the government's hands right now. >> we have seen so many look for consolidation, we will hear from monsanto soon.
do you expect that to happen here? >> i don't know, that's one of the problems with the obama administration, this is a big political story as well. this administration has been very opaque in terms of what they consider a deal that's not anticompetitive and, you know, they shut down the new york stock exchange, that was a cross-border deal and shut it down. they said it would create an anticompetitive market in listings of all stocks. if they're going to go there with that, that's not a consumer stable. nicole: this would be the largest ever for the german company for an acquisition. they've never made one like this. so this obviously being so large, what do you think of that in the first place, and secondly, any other takers that
could step in or -- >> my guess is this, you don't bid -- what they're doing is they're doing the best bid they can within -- within reason that they don't think will be topped on this, okay, this is following the play book of news corp. buying the wall street journal. you don't do something totally crazy but you offer a deal that you don't think it would be top because you believe the strategic combination works and i think that's what they are doing here. and based on my sources from last night, monsanto is favorably expose today accept this. but here is the key thing. this is a government deal. will the government on both sides of the aisle approve this thing and i can't tell you that nobody knows.

i don'or wonder whether i theshould seek treatment.c. i am ready. because today there's harvoni. a revolutionary treatment for the most common type of chronic hepatitis c. harvoni is proven to cure up to 99% of patients who've had no prior treatment. it transformed treatment as the first cure that's one pill, once a day for 12 weeks. certain patients can be cured with just 8 weeks of harvoni. harvoni is a simple treatment regimen that's been prescribed to more than a quarter of a million patients. tell your doctor if you've had a liver transplant, other liver or kidney problems, hiv, or any other medical conditions, and about all the medicines you take including herbal supplements. taking amiodarone with harvoni may cause a serious slowing of your heart rate.
common side effects of harvoni may include tiredness, headache and weakness. i am ready to put hep c behind me. i am ready to be cured. are you ready? ask your hep c specialist if harvoni is right for you. nicole: all right, monday morning, it's 5:15 a.m. right here in new york. let's get you caught up on what's happening now. president obama announced news conference that the united states is fully lifting the ban on sale of military equipment to vietnam, that ban has been in place for decades. obama said that the move was intended as a step towards normalizing relations with the former enemy of the united states. two new polls show clinton basically tied with trump in a general election. clinton once had an 1 #-point lead. german company beyer has offered $62 billion in cash to acquire
monsato first eminent and would combine crop seeds and pesticides. right now dow futures up 26, s&p up 4 right now. that's what's happening now. lauren: all right, what happened aboard egypt air flight 804 remains a mystery, egypt sending submarine to help find the flight recorders deep in waters of the mediterranean, 66 people on board when the plane crashed on flight from paris to cairo. joining us matthew graham. do you really suspect foul play and i'm only asking about the smoke in the plane, does that suggest that was mechanical failure? >> well, it could, but again 90,000 flights a day take off and land and we have egypt air
flight that in the middle of the night again crashes in an unknown manner, so whether fire is manmade or mechanical, we are seeing a pattern with flights in and around that area that appears to point to foul play. nicole: what do you think happened? we talked about smoke detected. you have gone through the many scenarios, any more likely than other based on what you learned thus far? >> i was an air marshall and i was team leader on the flight in '06, the explosives coming out of london and i have experience with aviation and terrorism. what i see with this fire is much like richard reed, reed attempted to light a shoe box, produces smoke, maybe this one was.
we have the pop can, beer can coming out a couple of months ago, there's a pattern here and the pattern is most flights take off and land normally. these in this area aren't. lauren: why would you suggest no terror group has suspected or come forward to claim responsibility? >> ideally from an analytical side, we have individual actors, while they're atribe outing their acts to a bigger idea, they're all just acting individually, much like san bernardino f we can tie a link to individuals who didn't come out as a big group and say immediately, we were responsible for that act -- lauren: matthew. no, finish your thought.
i'm sorry. >> there's different levels that people act upon. and fire something that's catastrophic to an aircraft, yet something easily done as a passenger if i wanted to do it and use it, we could. lauren: so egypt air flight 804 still a mystery. matthew graham terrorism analyst, of course, they are still looking for those black boxes while they can. nicole: coming up a nonstop star power and hit performances in las vegas last night at the 2016 billboard music awards. ♪ ♪ ♪
