06:09 EDTDGDollar Tree provides update on FTC review of pending acquisition of Family Dolla
Dollar Tree (DLTR) announced that it was providing an update regarding the status of the FTC's review of its pending acquisition of Family Dollar (FDO). Dollar Tree and Family Dollar have been actively engaging with the staff of the FTC as they review the pending merger. The company said, "The staff of the FTC is very focused on the discount retail sector (including how Family Dollar’s current pricing rules would impact store prices in a merger transaction) and has indicated that some divestitures will be required for the Pending Merger, which we believe will be no more than our original commitment in the July 27, 2014, Merger Agreement. Dollar Tree will work diligently with the FTC staff over the next few weeks concerning divestitures. Given the relatively small number of divestitures our transaction implicates, Dollar Tree does not expect any such divestiture to have a material impact on its plans for the combined organization. Furthermore, we believe that we will be in a position to complete the financing for the Pending Merger in January 2015 and to complete the Pending Merger as early as February 2015... In connection with its unsolicited tender offer for Family Dollar, Dollar General (DG) continues to refuse to agree to a “hell-or-high-water” commitment. Based on the foregoing concerns regarding the Pending Merger, Dollar Tree believes that the FTC may require divestitures far in excess of the 1,500 stores that Dollar General has offered to divest in its tender offer for Family Dollar... The special meeting of Family Dollar shareholders to vote on the Pending Merger is currently scheduled for December 23, 2014. To facilitate the FTC’s continued review, and in light of the practicalities associated with the transaction, Dollar Tree and Family Dollar have agreed not to close the Pending Merger until January 30, 2015, unless the FTC completes its review of the Pending Merger and terminates the waiting period at an earlier date. Dollar Tree will continue to provide additional information as the special meeting date approaches."

09:01 EDTGILDVA negotiated $594 per dose price for Gilead HCV treatment
A Veterans Health Administration official told a Senate committee yesterday that Veterans' Affairs has "moved rapidly to deploy new, more effective, less toxic HCV treatments and has been able to negotiate significant discounts for these newer therapies." The agency negotiated a price of $594 per dose for Gilead's (GILD) Hepatitis C virus drug Sofosbuvir, below the commercial price of $1,000 per dose, VHA Chief Consultant for Pharmacy Benefits Management Michael Valentino told the Senate's Committee on Veterans' Affairs. The agency also received a $413 per dose price for Johnson & Johnson's (JNJ) Simeprevir, below the commerical price of $790. The VA has approximately 174,000 veterans in care with HCV, making it the largest single HCV provider in the U.S., Valentino pointed out. He added, "Like the rest of the country, VA has treated only a portion of Veterans for HCV because treatment and cures have been difficult to achieve due to low efficacy and high toxicity of standard drug therapies."
