Credit Suisse downgraded NetSpend Holdings (NASDAQ: NTSP) from Outperform to Neutral and raised the price target from $15.00 to $16.00.

Credit Suisse said, "TSS announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire NTSP for $16 per share in a $1.4B cash transaction (a +30% premium to Monday's (18th February) close/+24% premium to its 52 week high). … We believe the offer fairly values NTSP's growth prospects.
