Hedge Fund to buy Novell?

A Hedge Fund has made a $2 billion offer to buy Novell; this perhaps surprising move values the formerly industry leading company at $5.75 a share. Wall Street expect the bid to be increased after shares hit $6.07 once this was announced.

I have to say I was quite taken aback by this as Novell have, by a lot of people, been written off to a large extent. I’d be interested to see what plans Elliott Associates/their client (the potential buyers) have for the future of Novell and it’s technology should they be successful.
