8:20 (Dow Jones) Rural/Metro (RURL), a provider of ambulance and
fire-protection services, has been subject of takeover speculation as Falck
Danmar, the largest ambulance provider in Scandinavia, and Coliseum Capital, a
firm with an activist designation, became the largest two holders of the thinly
traded stock. Still, RURL may have become more attractive to private equity
after concluding a debt refinancing in November that cut interest costs and
added financial flexibility. RURL agrees to be taken private by PE firm Warburg
Pincus for $17.25/share, a 37% premium to Friday's close but only 8.8% higher
than the stock's decade-high set in February. (george.stahl@dowjones.com)
