    As you can see the current share price is close to the offered price.

    It's all-cash transaction, so if you do nothing you'll get 114 per share when the deal goes through, so basically you might as well sell now and invest your money in something else unless you'd rather wait and hope for a better exchange rate.

    I had a similar situation when Intel bought MobilEye and sold soon after the announcement.
