07:38 EDTIRWDIronwood announces data from Phase I IW-1973 study
Ironwood Pharmaceuticals announced top-line data from a Phase I study of IW-1973, its lead investigational soluble guanylate cyclase stimulator. In the study, IW-1973 demonstrated cardiovascular pharmacodynamic effects, extensive tissue distribution, proof of mechanism for sGC stimulation, and a dose range that was well tolerated in healthy volunteers. The totality of clinical and preclinical data generated to date strongly support continued development of IW-1973 as a potential once-daily oral therapy. Ironwood intends to initiate a Phase Ib multiple ascending dose study of IW-1973 in the fourth quarter of 2015. This study will inform the selection of doses and priority indications for the Phase II program, which will focus on areas with the highest unmet need and optimal path to market. Ironwood intends to initiate at least two Phase II proof of concept studies for IW-1973 in 2016. The randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, single ascending dose Phase I study enrolled 46 healthy volunteers. Participants were randomized 3:1 to receive a single dose of IW-1973 or placebo administered via an oral capsule. Top-line clinical data were consistent with preclinical findings and included cardiovascular pharmacodynamic effects, dose-proportional pharmacokinetics, biomarker-based confirmation of target engagement, and evidence of extensive distribution to tissues. No serious adverse events were reported. Reported adverse events were consistent with the mechanism of action. Data from clinical and preclinical studies of IW-1973 are expected to be presented at a future medical conference.
06:39 EDTCVX, XOMEuro, U.S. oil and gas groups to find tough competition in Iran, WSJ says
European and U.S. oil and gas firms drawn to Iran as sanctions lessen can expect not only opportunities, but also Iranian companies offering tough competition or joint ventures, the Wall Street Journal reports. Though no Iran-based companies have the clout of firms such as Exxon Mobil (XOM) or Schlumberger (SLB), companies that can take on engineering tasks are emerging and growing in Iran, the report says. If the Iran nuclear agreement comes into effect and sanctions are lifted against Iran sometime soon, those Iranian companies will be well positioned to compete for tens of billions of dollars worth of service contracts, the report adds. Other publicly traded companies in the space include BP (BP), Chevron (CVX), ConocoPhillips (COP), Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) and Total (TOT). Reference Link

17:34 EDTWENWendy's completes purchase of 18.42M shares from Trian Group
As previously reported, on June 2, Wendy's and the Trian Group entered into a purchase agreement. At Wendy's request, the Trian Group agreed not to tender or sell any of their shares in the offer and instead agreed, pursuant to the purchase agreement, to sell a pro rata amount of their shares of common stock to the company at a purchase price per share equal to the purchase price determined and paid in the offer, following the completion of the offer. Pursuant to the purchase agreement, on July 17, the company acquired 18.42M shares of common stock, in the aggregate, from the Trian Group at a price of $11.45 per share, for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $210.9M. Trian Group currently holds approximately 19.56% of the outstanding shares of common stock. As such, the Trian Group has completed its previously announced plan to sell a sufficient number of shares to reduce its holdings in the company by at least 20% in order to avoid adverse federal income tax consequences in connection with the transaction. Following completion of the transaction, the Trian Group remains the company’s largest stockholder based on current share ownership information on file with the SEC. In addition, Nelson Peltz continues to serve as the chairman of the board of the company, Peter May continues to serve as vice chairman of the board of the company and Edward Garden continues to serve as a director of the company.
