Compuware shares up on offer

The software company's shares rose 12.9% to 10.76 after hedge fund Elliott Management Corp. offered to buy Compuware (CPWR) for $2.3 bil in cash or $11 a share. Elliott and its affiliates already own 8% of Compuware. The company and its sister fund, Elliott International, manage more than $20 bil of capital. In a letter earlier this month Elliott portfolio manager Jesse Cohn lauded the company overall but not its management.
