Largest gains on the ASX Tuesday 27 July 2021

Japara Healthcare (JHC) was the top mover on the ASX today. Shares in the company rose 17.9% to $1.38.

"Shares in the company have jumped after Japara announced news of a takeover agreement by nonprofit healthcare firm Cavalry," said Finder's investments editor Kylie Purcell.

"If the acquisition goes ahead, JHC shareholders will receive a payout of $1.40 per share. That's almost 20% higher than yesterday's closing price, which is almost in line with today's performance."

"Investors are seeing an opportunity to make a tidy profit should the deal go ahead as planned. The downside of course is that they could lose out if it doesn't work out as they expect."

Japara Healthcare is an Australian aged care operator.
