Security firm Network Associates (NA) has increased its offer for the outstanding 25 per cent share in antivirus company McAfee.com which it does not already own.
Under the amended offer, NA said that McAfee.com stockholders will be offered 0.9 of a share of NA common stock for each outstanding share of McAfee.com Class A common stock.
The exchange ratio of 0.9 of a share represents a 15.5 per cent increase over the original offer of 0.78 of a share.
The increase puts the value of the remaining 25 per cent of McAfee at around $137m.
NA made the bid after withdrawing its earlier offer due to accounting problems.
The vendor has made several attempts to buy back McAfee.com after spinning it off three years ago.
