11:40 EDTMSFT, GOOGEarnings Watch: Twitter to report Q4 earnings amid takeover speculation
Twitter (TWTR) is expected to report fourth quarter earnings after the market close on Wednesday, February 10 with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. Twitter is a real-time social media platform with more than 320M active users. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 12c on revenue of $709.94M. The consensus range is 6c-16c for EPS and $695.0M-$726.51M for revenue, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: Twitter reported third quarter adjusted EPS of 10c against estimates of 5c, on revenue of $569M against estimates of $559.6M. Twitter reported Q3 Monthly Active Users were up 11% to 320M. Excluding SMS Fast Followers, MAUs were 307M for the third quarter, up 8% year-over-year, and compared to 304M in the previous quarter. Mobile MAUs represented approximately 80% of total MAUs. In its Q3 earnings report, the company gave Q4 revenue guidance of $695M-$710M and Q4 adjusted EBITDA guidance of $155M-$175M. During its conference call, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said the company reduced the workforce by roughly 8%. He added that the focus with Moments is now making the feature easier to discover for Twitter users and will roll out the marketing campaign over the rest of the year and into 2016. NEWS AND STREET RESEARCH: Earlier today, Twitter announced that it is introduce a new Home timeline feature that gives users the option to "see the best Tweets first." The algorithmically generated timeline will show the tweets out of order based on what they think users want to see most. Dorsey had also confirmed last month that the company will change the 140-character rule. Over the past quarter, Twitter has had to address changes to its company as the stock price has dropped over 50%. In late January, Dorsey confirmed the departures of four executives. They include Twitter's head of product, Kevin Weil, head of media, Katie Stanton, head of engineering, Alex Roetter, and head of human resources, Brian "Skip" Schipper. Following the executive exits, Stifel downgraded the company to Hold, saying that it does not see how the departures can be viewed as positive in the middle of an attempted business turnaround. Evercore added that the likelihood of near-term growth re-acceleration at Twitter looks less likely following the departures. The analyst adds that traffic trends and agency channel checks continue "to point to the worst" for the company. Goldman lowered its price target to $28 after the executive exits, arguing that continued management instability likely further delays the development of the technology and product needed for Twitter to see user growth, engagement, and monetization. The firm also cut their Twitter 2016-2017 revenue estimates by 5%. As the stock price continues to fall, The Information reported that Marc Andreessen and Silver Lake have considered a deal for Twitter. Cantor added that Twitter is in play as a possible takeover target. Potential suitors include Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL), Facebook (FB) and Microsoft (MSFT), the analyst contends. On the media side, the firm thinks 21st Century Fox (FOXA), Disney (DIS), Comcast (CMCSA) or Time Warner (TWX) could express interest in Twitter. A Re/code report said that Twitter could name two new board members when it announces its Q4 earnings tonight. The new board members are likely to take the place of Peter Chernin and Peter Currie, two current directors; potential names that have been mentioned for the company's board include Shonda Rhimes, Oprah and Kendrick Lamar. PRICE ACTION: Twitter shares are down over 45% in the last three months. In Wednesday midday trading ahead of its Q4 report, Twitter shares are trading up 1.9%.

05:43 EDTNOKNokia says holds 91% of Alcatel-Lucent after second round of offer
The French stock market authority, Autorite des Marches Financiers, published the results of the reopened offer period of Nokia's (NOK) public exchange offer for Alcatel-Lucent (ALU) securities in France and in the United States. 426 695 572 Alcatel-Lucent ordinary shares, 52 286 499 American depositary shares, 4 795 096 OCEANE 2018 convertible bonds, 19 971 720 OCEANE 2019 convertible bonds, and 56 644 832 OCEANE 2020 convertible bonds have been tendered into the Reopened Offer in France and/or in the U.S. As a consequence, following settlement of the Reopened Offer which is expected to occur on February 12, 2016, Nokia will hold 91.25% of the share capital and at least 91.17% of the voting rights of Alcatel Lucent, 99.62% of the outstanding OCEANE 2018 convertible bonds, 37.18% of the outstanding OCEANE 2019 convertible bonds, and 68.17% of the outstanding OCEANE 2020 convertible bonds. This equates to Nokia holding 88.07% of the share capital on a fully diluted basis. Nokia will convert all of the OCEANE convertible bonds it will hold following settlement of the Reopened Offer on February 12, 2016. Consequently, less than 15% of the 2018 OCEANE convertible bonds will be outstanding and Nokia will cause Alcatel-Lucent to redeem at par value, plus accrued interest from the date the interest was last paid, to the date set for the early redemption all of the outstanding 2018 OCEANE convertible bonds, pursuant to the terms and conditions of such OCEANE convertible bonds. After the conversion of the OCEANE convertible bonds tendered into the Reopened Offer at the applicable improved conversion ratios, Nokia will hold 92.34% of the share capital and at least 92.26% of the voting rights of Alcatel-Lucent. As previously announced, the Alcatel-Lucent ADS program will be terminated following the settlement of the Reopened Offer, on February 24, 2016, and Nokia intends to cause Alcatel-Lucent to delist Alcatel-Lucent's ADSs from the NYSE and, subject to applicable law, deregister Alcatel-Lucent's ADSs under U.S. securities laws.
