17:46 EDTYUMYum! Brands sees China division SSS for Q3 down 13% vs. prior year
Yum! Brands made the following statement in a regulatory filing: "Since July 21st, Yum! Brandsí China division has experienced a significant, negative impact to sales at both KFC and Pizza Hut following adverse publicity regarding improper food handling practices by former supplier, Shanghai Husi, a division of OSI. As such, China division same-store sales for the third quarter ended August 31st are now estimated to be approximately -13% versus prior year. While sales are beginning to rebound, they continue to be negative. Our brands have proven resilient over time and we expect this to be the case with this situation as well. As previously reported, we will provide updated guidance on our expected full-year EPS growth on our third-quarter earnings call. The company plans to vigorously pursue legal action against OSI and Husi to recover damages from the incident."

05:25 EDTTMKTorchmark provides update on capital position
Torchmark provided an update on its capital position in response to a negative outlook on Torchmark issued by Standard and Poor's on August 29. Frank Svoboda, Torchmark's CFO, indicated that the revised outlook is due to a change in S&P's view of certain components of Torchmark's existing capital position, rather than an actual change in the capital position itself. "There has been no significant change in our capital position since the end of 2013 or since our second quarter conference call," said Svoboda. "Torchmark's regulatory capital position is as strong today as it has been for many years and we expect our consolidated RBC ratio to remain at or above 325% in the future. I would also add that we don't anticipate any changes in our share repurchase program as a result of S&P's action. As we have said before, we expect that share repurchases will continue to be the primary use of our free cash flow, absent a more attractive opportunity."
