08:32 EDTKMBKimberly Clark raises 2014 share repurchase target in spin-off completion
Kimberly-Clark announced the record date, distribution date and distribution ratio for the previously announced tax-free spin-off of its health care business. The spin-off will form the new publicly traded company, Halyard Health. Kimberly-Clark also increased its 2014 share repurchase program to take into account expected proceeds as a result of the spin-off. Kimberly-Clark shareholders will receive one share of Halyard Health common stock for every eight shares of Kimberly-Clark common stock held as of the close of trading on Oct. 23, 2014, the record date for the spin-off. Kimberly-Clark shareholders will receive cash in lieu of any fractional shares. The spin-off is expected to be effective as of the end of the day on Oct. 31, 2014, the distribution date for the spin-off, with 100 percent of the shares of Halyard Health distributed to Kimberly-Clark shareholders. Before completion of the spin-off, Halyard Health expects to make a one-time cash payment to Kimberly-Clark. As a result, Kimberly-Clark is increasing its 2014 share repurchase target to $2B, up from its previous plan of $1.3 to $1.5 billion.

08:11 EDTEZCHEZchip cuts Q3 revenue to $19M from $22M, consensus $22.59M
CEO Eli Fruchter said, "In the third quarter of 2014 we have seen weakness in orders as well as inventory adjustments across most of our key customers that are serving the carrier networking equipment space. We believe this is a temporary slowdown, caused primarily by a weaker carrier spending environment that the market is currently going through. Looking further out, carrier spending is forecasted to resume growth and with it our corresponding sales into this market. Concurrently, we are making good progress with our NPS which expands our reach to new markets, primarily data centers, NFV and SDN. Our pending acquisition of Tilera, which is expected to close during Q4, subject to US regulatory approvals, will further diversify the market segments and customers we serve and provide additional growth opportunities."
