US benchmarks closed on a high on Monday and Analogic Corp (NASDAQ:ALOG), the multinational, kept the ball rolling after the New York bell.

Elsewhere, Ascena Retail Group Inc (NASDAQ:ASNA) shares plunged over 15% to US$2.05.

The women's clothing retailer beat expectations on revenue but announced a loss, which was wider than expected.

Meanwhile, department store behemoth Nordstrom Inc (NYSE:JWN)  shares shed 2.16% to US$50.78 after hours as it emerged it had  spurned a takeover offer from the group's founding family, including several high-ranking executives, saying the cash bid of US$50 a share was too low.
