06:16 EDTSI, GE, ALSMYAlstom says 'considering' acquisition of Energy unit by GE
The Board of Directors of Alstom (ALSMY) announced that it has received a binding offer from General Electric (GE) to acquire its Energy activities. The scope of the transaction includes the Thermal Power, Renewable Power and Grid Sectors, as well as corporate and shared services. With 65,000 employees, these businesses registered EUR14.8B in sales in FY12/13. The proposed price is a fixed price representing an Equity Value of EUR12.35B. Should this offer be approved and completed, Alstom would refocus on its Transport activities. Alstom would use the sale proceeds to strengthen its Transport business and give it the means of an ambitious development, pay down its debt and return cash to its shareholders. The Board of Directors of Alstom, acknowledging unanimously the strategic and industrial merits of this offer and having noted the publicly announced undertakings by GE, has decided to set up a committee of independent directors, led by Jean-Martin Folz, to review before the end of May the proposed transaction. In the context of this binding offer, Alstom may not solicit offers from third parties for the acquisition of all or part of its Energy business. It has however reserved the right to respond to unsolicited offers for its entire Energy business and engage in discussions with bidders demonstrating a serious interest that could lead to a superior offer for Alstom. If, after having recommended GE’s offer, following its review, the Board of directors were to support another transaction, Alstom would owe GE a break-up fee equal to 1.5% of the purchase price. The Board also reviewed a declaration of interest received from Siemens (SI), regarding an alternative transaction. Siemens will have a fair access to information needed to make, should it decide to do so, a binding offer. This declaration will be reviewed in light of Alstom’s corporate interest and the interest of all stakeholders, in accordance with the commitments made.

06:03 EDTGEU.S. Multi-Industry sector downgraded to Neutral at Barclays
Barclays downgraded the U.S. Multi-Industry space to Neutral from Overweight saying rising headwinds could limit share upside to mid-single-digit levels in 2015, with only slight improvement in 2016. The firm believes the credit cycle is peaking and views the U.S. Dollar strength along with lower oil prices as headwinds. Concurrent with sector rating change, Barclays downgraded Dover (DOV), Grainger (GWW), Xylem (XYL) and WESCO (WCC) to Equal Weight from Overweight. It also upgraded Tyco (TYC) to Overweight from Equal Weight and Lennox (LII) to Equal Weight from Underweight, calling both defensive names in the space. The firm is also "comfortable" owning General Electric (GE), Honeywell (HON), Sensata (ST) and HD Supply (HDS) at current levels. It prefers waiting for pullbacks to buy shares of 3M (MMM).
