(Bloomberg) -- Athenahealth Inc. has received ongoing interest from at least five potential bidders as the auction to sell the health record technology company nears an end, according to people familiar with the offer.
The company has indications of interest above $135 per share, said the people, who asked not to be identified as the details aren’t public. Final bids are due toward the end of this month, they said.
Elliott Management Corp., the sometimes-activist investor that owns 1.4 percent of Athenahealth, is one of the parties still actively evaluating a potential deal, one of the people said.
Representatives for Athenahealth and Elliott declined to comment.
