Why Unity Stock Is Falling Today


Unity Software Inc U shares are trading lower Monday after the company's board announced its commitment to the ironSource Ltd IS transaction and rejected the unsolicited proposal from Applovin Corp APP.

Following a financial and strategic review, Unity's board has unanimously determined that the Applovin proposal is not in the best interests of Unity shareholders and would not reasonably be expected to result in a superior proposal as defined in Unity's merger agreement with ironSource. Unity's board reaffirmed its recommendation to vote in favor of its previously announced ironSource transaction.

"The Board continues to believe that the ironSource transaction is compelling and will deliver an opportunity to generate long-term value through the creation of a unique end-to-end platform that allows creators to develop, publish, run, monetize, and grow live games and real-time 3D content seamlessly," said John Riccitiello, president and CEO of Unity.
