USA Truck spurned the bid on Sept. 26, saying it substantially undervalues the company. We continue to believe that a combination of Knight and USA Truck is better positioned to deliver value for and is in the best interest of all of Knight and USA Trucks stakeholders, and we are prepared to take the necessary steps to make this combination a reality, Knight said today. Knight made public its offer to buy the Van Buren, Arkansas-based company in a $242 million transaction on Sept. 26, sending USA Truck shares soaring 36 percent, the biggest advance since its initial public offering in 1992. The combination would help allay risk in the short-haul carriers turnaround plan and help reverse eight consecutive quarters of net losses, said Knight, which is based in Phoenix. USA Truck rose 4.3 percent to $8.96 at the close in New York . The shares have more than doubled this year. Knight was little changed at $16.52 and has increased 13 percent this year. Thursdays press release is our comment, USA Truck Chief Financial Officer Clifton Beckham said today by phone, referring to the companys Sept. 26 rebuff of the offer.

Olympic team in 2016. According to ESPN.com , USA Boxing head Dr. Charles Butler said in an open letter that Tyson’s recently formed Iron Mike Productions has been offering money to the best amateur fighters to turn pro — including 18-year-old Florida fighter Erickson Lubin, who some in amateur boxing believe to be the country’s best hope for a gold medal at the Rio Games. He says the money being offered is “pennies on the dollar” of what the prospects could be worth with an Olympic medal. “Mike, USA Boxing does not have the funds to compete with your offers,” the letter said. “If you have money and would like to assist these young athletes and the sport, you should donate for athlete stipends to support the training of these boxers and help your country regain its prominence on the medal stand. Please do not take them from us. If they win a medal for their country, you can always sign them to professional contracts at that time.” Iron Mike Promotions signed Lubin on Tuesday (October 1), his 18th birthday. He’s a two-time Junior Olympic national champion and won the 152-pound division at the National Golden Gloves this year. In his USA Boxing bio, the teen prospect said his goals were to win a gold medal at the Olympics, turn pro and win every title possible. “We want to be competitive and we want to increase our overall performance in the Olympic Games,” said USA Boxing executive director Anthony Bartkowski.
