06:14 EDTAMZNEC probes transfer pricing arrangements on taxation of Amazon in Luxembourg
The European Commission has opened an in-depth investigation to examine whether the decision by Luxembourg's tax authorities with regard to the corporate income tax to be paid by Amazon in Luxembourg comply with the EU rules on state aid. The opening of an in-depth investigation gives interested third parties and the Member States concerned an opportunity to submit comments. It does not prejudge the outcome of the investigation. The tax ruling in favor of Amazon under investigation dates back to 2003 and is still in force. It applies to Amazon's subsidiary Amazon EU Sarl, which is based in Luxembourg and records most of Amazon's European profits. Based on a methodology set by the tax ruling, Amazon EU Sarl pays a tax deductible royalty to a limited liability partnership established in Luxembourg but which is not subject to corporate taxation in Luxembourg. As a result, most European profits of Amazon are recorded in Luxembourg but are not taxed in Luxembourg. At this stage the Commission considers that the amount of this royalty, which lowers the taxable profits of Amazon EU Sarl each year, might not be in line with market conditions. The Commission has concerns that the ruling could underestimate the taxable profits of Amazon EU Sarl, and thereby grant an economic advantage to Amazon by allowing the group to pay less tax than other companies whose profits are allocated in line with market terms. The Commission will now continue investigating to determine whether its concerns are confirmed. Luxembourg did not fully comply with the Commission's request for information as part of its information gathering exercise in relation to tax ruling practices in some Member States but only provided a limited sample. In June the Commission therefore initiated infringement proceedings against Luxembourg by issuing letters of formal notice. Although the Luxembourgish authorities have still not fully complied with the Commission's information request, in August Luxembourg did provide information on a number of cases requested by the Commission, including Amazon.

11:02 EDTEMCHP rises as split viewed as potential prelude to deals
Shares of HP (HPQ) are climbing after the company announced that it would split itself into two publicly traded companies. Analysts were mostly upbeat on the news and tech news website Re/code said that the two companies would be "in deal-making mode" following the split. WHAT'S NEW: HP this morning said it would split itself into two companies by the end of its fiscal 2015. One company will include HP's technology infrastructure, software and services businesses, to be known as "Hewlett-Packard Enterprise," while the other will include the company's PC and printing businesses and be called "HP Inc." Meg Whitman, who is currently the CEO of HP, will become CEO of Hewlett-Packard Enterprise and chairman of HP, Inc. ANALYST REACTION: Shareholders will likely view the move positively, as limited synergies exist between HP's enterprise business and its PC and printing business, Deutsche Bank analyst Sherri Scribner wrote. Moreover, the forward price to earnings ratio of the enterprises unit, whose margins are set to expand, are more likely to reach close to 11x following a split, in-line with the multiple of Xerox (XRX) and CSC (CSC), the analyst contended. Noting that HP remains one of the cheapest names in the S&P 500, Scribner kept a $40 price target and Buy rating on the shares. The split is "a bold and smart move" by HP that will give it the financial flexibility needed to sell off one or both of the PC and printing businesses, wrote Cantor analyst Brian White. The shareholders of EMC (EMC), which reportedly had been in discussions about merging with HP, would have difficulty accepting HP's printer and PC business, according to White. The analyst raised his price target on HP to $39 from $34.50 but kept a Hold rating on the stock. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Both Hewlett-Packard Enterprise and HP Inc. will "be in deal-making mode" after the split, Re/code stated. HP Inc. is likely to draw attention from both Dell and China's Lenovo (LNVGY), which were both approached by HP about a possible deal over the last year, the website stated. Meanwhile, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise could restart dormant merger talks with EMC, while Dell and Cisco (CSCO) could emerge as bidders and offer shareholders of both Hewlett-Packard Enterprise and EMC better terms, Re/code stated. However, Cisco has carried out a more conservative M&A strategy lately, while its CEO, John Chambers, who is preparing to retire soon, said the company would not be interested in buying EMC, Re/code noted. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, HP jumped 4.6% to $36.83, while shares of EMC were down fractionally.

06:38 EDTEMCSpun off HP companies could be takeover targets, Re/code says
