Kindred Healthcare increased its bid for Gentiva Health Services to about $534 million, and plans to take the offer directly to shareholders.

In May, Gentiva disclosed a poison-pill plan with a 15% trigger, in an effort to thwart the takeover. Gentiva's board wrote to Kindred it believes its plan to stand alone “will generate substantially more value to our shareholders.”
