16:42 EDTATVIActivision Blizzard to receive $275M in settlement
Activision Blizzard (ATVI) announced that an agreement has been reached to settle the consolidated derivative and class action shareholder case stemming from the October 2013 purchase by the company and an investor group of 88% of Vivendi SA’s (VIVHY) shares in the company. The settlement is subject to completion of appropriate documentation and approval by the Delaware Chancery Court. Multiple insurance companies, along with various defendants, will pay Activision Blizzard $275M. The company believes the settlement, which acknowledges no wrongdoing by any party, is in the interest of all stakeholders. The board stated: “The transaction, structured through the efforts and significant personal investment of Bobby Kotick and Brian Kelly, has contributed to the creation of over $3B of value for shareholders. We are pleased to be able to put this matter to rest.” Other terms of the settlement include the addition of two unaffiliated company directors, payment of reasonable and customary fees and costs of plaintiff’s attorneys by the Company, an adjustment of voting rights and a global release of all claims against the defendants. The October 2013 transaction was approved by Vivendi SA and the company’s board following a recommendation of a Special Committee of independent directors formed by the board to negotiate the transaction on behalf of the company.

07:19 EDTSBACSpectrum auction positive for DISH, Globalstar, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan notes the AWS-3 spectrum auction continued on Tuesday with the aggregate value of licenses with bids at $16.4B, up from Monday's $8.9B and compared to the reserve price of $10.6B that the FCC set for the entire auction. The firm views the rise in prices as negative for telecom carriers that are spending more than expected, namely AT&T (T) and Verizon (VZ), and possibly T-Mobile (TMUS) and US Cellular. It views the prices as positive for independent spectrum owners like DISH (DISH) and Globalstar (GSAT), as well as tower companies American Tower (AMT), SBA Communications (SBAC) and Crown Castle (CCI).
