08:57 EDTACTActavis completes acquisition of Allergan
Actavis plc (ACT) announced that it has completed the acquisition of Allergan (AGN) in a cash and equity transaction valued at approximately $70.5B. The combination creates one of the world’s top 10 pharmaceutical companies by sales revenue, with combined annual pro forma revenues of more than $23B anticipated in 2015. Actavis continues to expect the transaction to generate double-digit accretion to non-GAAP earnings within the first 12 months, including approximately $1.8B in operating and financial synergies to be realized within one year following the close. These synergies exclude any additional revenue or manufacturing synergies, and are in addition to the $475M of annual savings previously announced by Allergan in connection with Project Endurance. Actavis further expects to generate strong operating cash flow in excess of $8B in 2016, which would enable the company to rapidly de-lever the balance sheet.

07:38 EDTNAONordic American Offshore chairman increases stake, lowers dividend
Nordic American Offshore (NAO) Chairman, Herbjorn Hansson released a letter to shareholders stating that he has increased his stake by 50,000 shares. The letter stated, "A company owned and controlled by my son Alexander and I bought 50,000 NAO shares yesterday at about $7.83 per share, in addition to the stock ownership we have direct and indirect in NAO. Currently the market for our vessels is turbulent - the decline in oil price has led to reductions in exploration activity in the North Sea, in turn lowering the number of working oil rigs and the demand for PSVs. Five vessels in our eight vessel fleet are currently employed on contracts, up from three last quarter. Three of our vessels are operating in the spot market. At the time of this letter to you, we enter a period of greater visibility on earnings and security in the current challenging environment. We have achieved in excess of 80% utilization which is a sound performance in the current market conditions. Rates for the spot ships have been reduced this year as a consequence of the low oil prices." The letter also stated that the company will continue to pay a dividend but at a rate less than the previous quarterly dividend of 45c per share. "In our 2014 start-up year we declared total dividends of $1.80 per share. Going forward we will review the dividend on a quarterly basis in the same way as Nordic American Tankers (NAT) has done in the past. NAO basically employs the same strategy as NAT. A strong balance sheet and low cost breakeven are the key elements of our robust long-term performance. We expect to continue to pay a dividend going forward – although, for the time being, at a lower level than for the previous quarters when the dividend was 45c per share."
