09:33 EDTALL, BCSAllstate 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.

06:39 EDTBCSEuropean banks take out EUR83B of loans from central bank, NY Times says
European banks agreed to take out EUR83B in low interest loans from the European Central Bank, as part of a program in which all of the funds must be loaned to businesses or individuals, or repaid to the central bank within two years, according to The New York Times. Several analysts had said that they would be disappointed if banks took out less than EUR100B in loans, but a number of analysts said that a second round of the program, due to occur in December after stress tests have been completed, may be more popular, the newspaper stated. Publicly traded European banks include Banco Santander (SAN), Barclays (BCS), Credit Suisse (CS), Deutsche Bank (DB), HSBC (HSBC), ING Groep (ING), Lloyds Banking (LYG), Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) and UBS (UBS).

06:20 EDTALLMarchex cuts 2014 call-driven revenue outlook due to revised Allstate commitment
Allstate (ALL) has indicated its desire to move to a fixed fee model going forward. Under this proposed model, Marchex’s (MCHX) economic upside would have been limited, while financial exposure to Marchex would have remained. Marchex does not believe it is in its best long-term interest to work under such an arrangement. Marchex will continue to work with Allstate as an integration partner utilizing its call analytics technology. Marchex expects this will be a relatively small financial contributor. Marchex CEO Russell Horowitz said, "“This outcome is disappointing, as we believe that a performance-based model is the way most companies are progressing. This is the trend we are seeing with our customer base... Beyond Allstate, we continue to experience growth in our customer base for call-driven advertising products and believe we are early in the customer adoption phase of mobile and call-driven advertising."
