05:43 EDTALUNokia says holds 91% of Alcatel-Lucent after second round of offer
The French stock market authority, Autorite des Marches Financiers, published the results of the reopened offer period of Nokia's (NOK) public exchange offer for Alcatel-Lucent (ALU) securities in France and in the United States. 426 695 572 Alcatel-Lucent ordinary shares, 52 286 499 American depositary shares, 4 795 096 OCEANE 2018 convertible bonds, 19 971 720 OCEANE 2019 convertible bonds, and 56 644 832 OCEANE 2020 convertible bonds have been tendered into the Reopened Offer in France and/or in the U.S. As a consequence, following settlement of the Reopened Offer which is expected to occur on February 12, 2016, Nokia will hold 91.25% of the share capital and at least 91.17% of the voting rights of Alcatel Lucent, 99.62% of the outstanding OCEANE 2018 convertible bonds, 37.18% of the outstanding OCEANE 2019 convertible bonds, and 68.17% of the outstanding OCEANE 2020 convertible bonds. This equates to Nokia holding 88.07% of the share capital on a fully diluted basis. Nokia will convert all of the OCEANE convertible bonds it will hold following settlement of the Reopened Offer on February 12, 2016. Consequently, less than 15% of the 2018 OCEANE convertible bonds will be outstanding and Nokia will cause Alcatel-Lucent to redeem at par value, plus accrued interest from the date the interest was last paid, to the date set for the early redemption all of the outstanding 2018 OCEANE convertible bonds, pursuant to the terms and conditions of such OCEANE convertible bonds. After the conversion of the OCEANE convertible bonds tendered into the Reopened Offer at the applicable improved conversion ratios, Nokia will hold 92.34% of the share capital and at least 92.26% of the voting rights of Alcatel-Lucent. As previously announced, the Alcatel-Lucent ADS program will be terminated following the settlement of the Reopened Offer, on February 24, 2016, and Nokia intends to cause Alcatel-Lucent to delist Alcatel-Lucent's ADSs from the NYSE and, subject to applicable law, deregister Alcatel-Lucent's ADSs under U.S. securities laws.

10:25 EDTINTC$25B cloud boost seen coming for Amazon, Microsoft, Google
Amazon (AMZN), Microsoft (MSFT) and Alphabet (GOOGL, GOOG) are all poised to get huge boosts from their cloud businesses over the next three years, research firm Pacific Crest wrote in a note to investors today. The combined revenue from their cloud initiatives should surge $25B over the next three years as companies move more workloads to the cloud from legacy IT systems, the firm believes. NEXT MAJOR CLOUD CYCLE: The revenue of Amazon's cloud business, AWS, could triple to $25B by 2018, according to Pacific Crest analyst Evan Wilson. Moreover, by 2018, AWS could account for 14% of the company's revenue and over 50% of its profits, up from 7% and 41%, respectively, today, the analyst predicts. Meanwhile, within three years, Microsoft's revenue from its commercial cloud business could jump 50% to $25B, the analyst stated. By 2018, the business could account for almost 25% of the tech giant's revenue and 15% of its profits, up from 15% of its revenue and very little of its profit today, the analyst added. Google's revenue from infrastructure as a service, a form of cloud computing, can surge 500% over the next three years to about $4.5B, Wilson believes. Additionally, noting that AWS' incremental operating margin came in at 51.9% last quarter, Wilson believes that investors are underestimating the profitability of cloud businesses. The analyst maintained an $800 price target and Overweight rating on Amazon, a $65 price target and Overweight rating on Microsoft, and a $910 price target and Overweight rating on Alphabet. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Intel (INTC), along with hard disk drive maker Western Digital (WDC) and Arista Networks (ANET), which supplies cloud networking solutions, should all benefit from the tremendous growth in demand for cloud platforms, Wilson believes. He kept Overweight ratings on all three of the latter stocks. Conversely, Wilson identifies EMC (EMC), HP Enterprise (HPE) and NetApp (NTAP) as "cloud share donors" and keeps Sector Weight ratings on their shares. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Amazon fell 1% to $525.80, Microsoft was flat near $52 per share and Alphabet Class A shares dropped 1.8% to $736.15.
