Einstein Noah Restaurant Group Inc. (Nasdaq: BAGL) reports Q3 results after today's close. Analysts expect the bagel chain operator to post EPS of $0.22. Late last month, JAB Holding Co., an affiliate of the private-equity firm Joh. A. Benckiser Group, announced it would take the bagel operator private. Einstein Noah is parent to the Einstein Bros. Bagels, Noah's New York Bagels, and Manhattan Bagel brands, which operate, franchise, and license more than 855 restaurants in 42 states and the District of Columbia, along with a dough-production facility. Under the agreement, JAB will acquire Einstein Noah's outstanding shares for $20.25 per share, which represents a premium of about 47% over the company's average trading price.
