09:33 EDTBCS, ALLAllstate says entered into share repurchase agreement to purchase $500M of stock
On February 28, Allstate (ALL) entered into an accelerated share repurchase agreement with Barclays (BCS) to purchase $500M of its outstanding common stock. The majority of the shares to be repurchased under this agreement will be received by the Registrant at the agreement’s inception. It is expected that Barclays will purchase the shares that it delivers under the agreement in the market within a timeframe not to exceed four months. The final purchase price per share and number of shares to be delivered by Barclays will be determined at the conclusion of the agreement and settlement will consist of the Registrant receiving shares based on the average of the daily volume weighted average prices of the Registrant’s common stock during the period of Barclays’ purchases. If the Registrant is required to pay a settlement amount, the Registrant may elect to settle in cash or shares of its common stock. The agreement is part of the Registrant’s repurchase programs totaling $2B that were announced on December 17, 2012 and February 6, 2013.

10:17 EDTBCSFINRA fines Barclays Capital, Citigroup Global Markets, others $43.5M total
FINRA announced that it has fined 10 firms a total of $43.5M for allowing their equity research analysts to solicit investment banking business and for offering favorable research coverage in connection with the 2010 planned initial public offering of Toys"R"Us. FINRA fined the following firms. Barclays Capital (BCS) - $5M; Citigroup Global Markets (C) – $ 5M; Credit Suisse Securities (CS) – $5M; Goldman, Sachs & Co. (CS) – $5M; JP Morgan Securities LLC (JPM) – $5M; Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. (DB) – $4M; Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Inc. (BAC) – $4M; Morgan Stanley & Co., LLC (MS) – $4M; Wells Fargo Securities, LLC (WFC) – $4M; Needham & Company LLC – $2.5M. In addition, FINRA found that six of the 10 firms — Barclays, Citigroup, Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan and Needham — had inadequate supervisory procedures related to research analyst participation in investment banking pitches. Toys"R"Us and its sponsors offered each of the 10 firms various roles in the IPO but it eventually decided not to proceed with the offering. In settling this matter, the 10 firms neither admitted nor denied the charges, but consented to the entry of FINRA's findings.
