"We continue to see tangible benefits from the investments we have made to strengthen our value proposition for customers. Our comparable store sales and customer traffic trends are improving, and we are beginning to see stabilization in key categories. While our trends in late-February were adversely impacted by severe winter weather, our sales trends in March rebounded nicely, reflecting both improved traffic trends and the benefit of an earlier Easter,” said Howard R. Levine, Chairman and CEO. “We are excited about the pending merger with Dollar Tree, and our teams are working to ensure a successful integration.”

16:38 EDTFDODollar Tree discloses update on FTC review process of Family Dollar acquisition
Dollar Tree (DLTR) disclosed in a regulatory filing, the following update on the Federal Trade Commission’s review process of the company’s pending acquisition of Family Dollar Stores (FDO). As of April 1, the FTC’s staff has substantially completed its review and identified approximately 340 stores for divestiture, representing approximately $47.4M of operating income. The company expects that all or almost all of the stores that will be divested will be Family Dollar stores. The company continues to make progress with divestiture buyers and has received multiple indications of interest from buyers, each of whom intend to operate these divested locations as dollar stores to address the FTC's concerns. The company is working to finalize divestiture agreements with the selected bidders in April 2015 and in parallel to secure FTC approval. The company intends to close the proposed merger in May, but this timing is subject to certain factors beyond the company’s control, including FTC approval.

07:31 EDTMTDRMatador says achieved quarterly production of approx. 2.1M BOE for Q1
Matador achieved record quarterly production of approximately 2.1 million BOE for the first quarter of 2015. Production for the first quarter of 2015 was almost double the 1.1 million BOE produced in the first quarter of 2014 and up about 10% sequentially from 1.9 million BOE produced in the fourth quarter of 2014. First quarter 2015 production was ahead of the Company’s estimates by about 10% as a result of better-than-expected performance from newly completed wells in both the Delaware Basin and the Eagle Ford shale, as well as earlier completion dates on several Eagle Ford wells leading to less shut-in production during the first quarter. For the month of March 2015, Matador’s average daily oil equivalent production increased to approximately 25,000 BOE per day for the first time in the company’s history. In addition, during the last two weeks of March 2015, once the newly completed and temporarily shut-in Eagle Ford wells were placed on production, Matador’s daily oil equivalent production was as high as 29,000 BOE per day and averaged approximately 27,000 BOE per day, including 14,000 barrels of oil per day and 80 million cubic feet of natural gas per day. Matador also announced that the 24-hour initial potential test results from its two most recent completions in the Rustler Breaks prospect area in Eddy County, New Mexico – the Guitar 10-24S-28E RB #202H and the Tiger 14-24S-28E RB #224H wells – which tested two new horizons within the Wolfcamp formation. Based on the encouraging test results, Matador believes it has established commercial production in three Wolfcamp horizons for future development in its Rustler Breaks prospect area and further anticipates that it may soon identify a fourth commercial horizon in this prospect area, the Second Bone Spring, based on both an upcoming Matador test of this formation as well as the results from other operators drilling wells in the Second Bone Spring in the area. Matador estimates that it has approximately 40% of its anticipated oil production and approximately 70% of its anticipated natural gas production hedged for the remainder of 2015.
