Family Dollar (FDO) said in a memo to its employees yesterday that it is proceeding with its plan to be acquired by Dollar Tree (DLTR), even as Dollar General (DG) seeks to break up the deal and acquire Family Dollar. Family Dollar said it is not planning any changes to its health care, 401(k) and compensation plans. Family Dollar comments, "The immediate focus of our work is to prepare for ‘Day 1,’ (the first day after closing), while simultaneously beginning to build a more detailed plan for the integration. We’re now in the ‘integration planning phase,’ which involves planning for the complex blending of our two organizations."

12:01 EDTADBEAdobe falls after Q4 revenue outlook trails consensus
Shares of creative software maker Adobe Systems (ADBE) are falling after it guided to fourth quarter revenue below analysts' consensus view. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, Adobe reported Q3 adjusted earnings per share of 28c and revenue of $1.005B, compared to analysts' consensus estimates of 26c and 1.02B, respectively. Adobe exited Q3 with 2.81M creative cloud subscriptions, a sequential increase of 502,000. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Adobe forecast Q4 adjusted EPS of 26c-32c, versus consensus of 31c. The company sees Q4 revenue of $1.025B-$1.075B, below the consensus forecast of $1.09B. The company expects net new creative cloud subscriptions to grow sequentially in Q4 to slightly exceed its target of 1M. ANALYST REACTION: This morning, analyst commentary was positive, with several firms recommending buying shares of Adobe on any weakness. Research firm Stern Agee was among them, stating that Adobe's revenue miss was driven by a shift of perpetual licenses to term contracts. Sterne Agee said that Adobe's deferred revenue outperformed, which should give long-term investors confidence in the name. It believes the long-term transition story is intact, and expects upside to revenues in FY15. The firm kept a Buy rating on the shares with a price target of $85. Two other firms, JMP Securities and BofA Merrill Lynch also recommended buying Adobe amid its post-earnings weakness. PRICE ACTION: Near noon, Adobe fell $2.74, or nearly 4%, to $68. Despite today's pull-back, the shares have gained about 40% over the past 12 months. ANOTHER TO WATCH: Autodesk, (ADSK), which also serves software customers in the digital media and entertainment industries, is down fractionally to $54.54.

08:28 EDTDLTRFamily Dollar board rejects Dollar General's 'illusory' tender offer
Family Dollar Stores (FDO) announced that its Board of Directors unanimously recommends that Family Dollar’s shareholders reject the unsolicited conditional tender offer made by Dollar General Corporation (DG) and not tender their shares. In conjunction with its rejection of Dollar General’s offer, Family Dollar’s Board unanimously reaffirms its recommendation in support of the transaction with Dollar Tree (DLTR). The terms of the tender offer are the same as those in the proposal made by Dollar General on September 2, 2014, which the Board of Directors of Family Dollar unanimously rejected on September 5, 2014, on the basis of antitrust regulatory considerations. Howard R. Levine, Chairman and CEO of Family Dollar, said, “Our Board of Directors, with the assistance of outside advisors and consultants, reviewed all aspects of Dollar General’s tender offer and concluded unanimously that this highly conditional Offer is illusory because, as Dollar General is well aware, the Offer cannot close on the terms proposed. Tenders into the Dollar General Offer will be meaningless since there is no way that Dollar General can purchase shares that are tendered.” Levine added, “The terms of the Dollar General Offer are no different from those in its most recent unsolicited proposal, which was previously and unanimously rejected by our Board of Directors based on antitrust regulatory considerations. There is a very real and material risk that the transaction proposed by Dollar General would fail to close, after a lengthy and disruptive review process. Accordingly, our Board has rejected Dollar General’s tender offer and reaffirmed its support of the transaction with Dollar Tree, which delivers attractive value in the form of immediate upfront cash and upside participation in a combined Dollar Tree-Family Dollar entity, as well as closing certainty.” Ed Garden, a Family Dollar director and co-founder and Chief Investment Officer at Trian Fund Management, L.P., a large shareholder of the Company, stated, “We are focused on delivering to Family Dollar shareholders the highest value with certainty, and the Dollar Tree transaction does just that. Dollar Tree has taken the antitrust risk off the table by committing to divest as many stores as necessary to obtain antitrust clearance. We remain fully committed to the Dollar Tree transaction.”
