07:04 EDTCGCarlyle Group agrees to acquire Blyth for $98M
Carlyle Group (CG) and Blyth (BTH) announced they have entered into a definitive agreement under which Carlyle Group will acquire all of Blyth's outstanding shares of common stock in a transaction valuing Blyth at $98M, equating to $6.00 per share, which represents a premium of approximately 105% over the closing price of Blyth common stock on Friday, August 28 and a premium of 65% over Blyth's 30-day average share price as of such date. The transaction has been unanimously approved by Blyth's board and will be completed by means of a tender offer followed by a merger. Under the terms of the definitive agreement, an affiliate of Carlyle Group will commence a tender offer for all of Blyth's outstanding shares of common stock at $6.00 per share in cash. The tender offer is conditioned on Blyth's stockholders tendering at least a majority of Blyth's outstanding shares in the tender offer, early termination or expiration of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act and other customary closing conditions. The acquisition is expected to close in Q4. The financing for the transaction will come from Carlyle Equity Opportunity Fund, a $1.1B U.S. middle-market buyout fund. Robert B. Goergen, Blyth's chairman of the board, and Robert Goergen, Jr., Blyth's president and CEO, who beneficially own approximately 38% of Blyth's outstanding shares of common stock, have committed to support the tender offer.

06:56 EDTCGCarlyle has little luck with hedge funds, WSJ reports
Carlyle Group has often seen the hazards of running hedge funds, with its Carlyle Capital fund becoming a harbinger for the 2008 financial crisis and its Blue Wave Partners hedge fund ending abruptly a few months later, the New York Times says. As recently as last week, the company announced that its credit-focused hedge fund Claren Road Asset Management faced roughly $2B in investor redemption requests, the report says. Though the company makes money in its core buyout business as well as in other areas, its track record with hedge funds has been murky at best, the report says. Reference Link

20:03 EDTGPSGap to stop on-call shifts by late September
In a company blog post published Wednesday, Gap announced a commitment to eliminate the use of on-call shifts across the organization. The work began earlier in the summer, said the company, and all five brands have aligned on a complete phase-out of this practice by the end of September. Additionally, each of Gap's brands has committed to improving scheduling policies to provide store employees with at least 10-14 days notice. The majority of brands will be rolling out these new policies in September, and all Gap brands are committed to phasing in advanced schedules by early 2016. Reference Link
