UPDATE: Brean Capital Reiterates On ARRIS Group On 3Q14 Preview

Jefferies reduced its rating on ARRIS Group (NASDAQ: ARRS) from Buy to Hold and lowered its price target from $17 to $14.

Jefferies commented, "Last night after the close, Arris announced the acquisition of Google's Motorola Home business. While there may be some merit to the transaction, the potential merger renders the key aspects of our constructive thesis around Arris largely irrelevant. As such, we're downgrading Arris shares to Hold. We use the combined entities' model to achieve our price targets, but show the previous and pro forma models within the note."

ARRIS Group closed at $14.54 on Wednesday.
