08:01 EDTEXCExelon, Pepco Holdings reach settlement agreement with Maryland counties
Exelon Corporation (EXC) and Pepco Holdings (POM) announced that they have reached a settlement agreement with Montgomery and Prince George’s counties in the proceeding before the Maryland Public Service Commission to review the companies’ proposed merger, which was announced on April 30, 2014. The two counties represent all of Pepco’s Maryland customers and nearly three-fourths of Pepco Holdings total customers in Maryland. The settlement, which is subject to the approval of the Commissioners of the PSC, was filed by Exelon and Pepco Holdings and signed by Montgomery County, Prince George’s County, the National Consumer Law Center, National Housing Trust, Maryland Affordable Housing Coalition, the Housing Association of Nonprofit Developers and a consortium of nine recreational trail advocacy organizations led by the Mid-Atlantic Off-Road Enthusiasts. The settlement includes commitments aimed at providing benefits to customers and the state through a combination of bill credits, funding for energy-efficiency programs and renewables investments, low-income customer assistance and other provisions, including: A commitment to designate a portion of a proposed $94.4M customer investment fund to provide $36.8M in bill credits, or approximately $50 per Pepco and Delmarva Power customer in Maryland. The remainder -- $57.6M -- will go toward funding energy-efficiency programs designated by Montgomery County, Prince George’s County and the PSC. A commitment to help economically challenged customers lower their energy bills by dedicating at least 20% of the energy efficiency funds to programs targeting low- and moderate-income customers. In addition to today’s agreement, Exelon and Pepco Holdings announced March 10 that they have reached a settlement with The Alliance for Solar Choice in Maryland. The merger requires approvals by the Maryland Public Service Commission, the Public Service Commission of the District of Columbia and the Delaware Public Service Commission. On Feb. 13, Exelon reached a settlement agreement with staff of the Delaware Public Service Commission and other stakeholders, and the agreement is pending approval by the Commission. Following the expiration of the U.S. Department of Justice’s review period on Dec. 22, 2014, the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act no longer precludes completion of the merger.

15:15 EDTHTGCHercules Technology says EPS growth targets pushed out 'quarter or two'
"Our origination activity has been very robust as we continue to see healthy deal flow from our venture capital partners and from our innovative venture growth stage companies. However, we continue to see many of these new investments opportunities closing later and later in the quarter, thereby lowering our targeted intra-quarter weighted average loan balances, and pushing out our EPS growth targets by a quarter or two in the process. In addition, our forecasted early pay-offs, or prepayments, are materially lower than prior quarters and in-line with our expectations, which should allow us to grow our loan investment portfolio and begin to leverage our SG&A infrastructure investment in anticipation of higher year-end loan investment portfolio growth and balances. Finally, we continue to selectively pursue new loan investment opportunities that meet our credit underwriting standards, as we look to systematically grow our loan investment portfolio to new records levels in 2015 with senior secured high quality investments. We remain steadfast in not trading-off increased credit risk in the quest for higher loan yields by reaching down the capital structure, and prefer to accept lower loan yields in lieu of increased credit risk," said Hercules chairman and CEO Henriquez.
