07:36 EDTDLTRDollar Tree filing shows Family Dollar talks underway before Icahn involvement
A regulatory filing explaining the history of the merger agreement between Dollar Tree (DLTR) and Family Dollar (FDO) showed that, on February 24, a representative of Dollar Tree's financial advisor, JPMorgan, made a telephone call to a representative of Morgan Stanley to express Dollar Tree's interest in discussing a potential business combination transaction with Family Dollar. The filing also states that on June 6 Carl Icahn and certain of his affiliates filed a Schedule 13D disclosing that together they beneficially owned approximately 9.39% of the then-outstanding shares of Family Dollar common stock and that they wished to discuss with Family Dollar its business and strategies to enhance stockholder value. That day, Icahn telephoned Howard Levine, Chairman and CEO of Family Dollar, to discuss the Schedule 13D filing and to express an interest in additional communications with Family Dollar's management regarding the company's current operations and future plans, including potential strategic opportunities and potential business combination transactions. Levine asked Icahn whether he would be willing to sign a non-disclosure agreement and Icahn declined, the filing stated. Additionally on June 6, a member of the board of directors of "Company A" emailed Levine to suggest that they speak. On June 7, Levine and the member of the board of directors of Company A had a telephone conversation, during which the representative of Company A "indicated that Company A would be reluctant to participate in the negotiation of a transaction with Family Dollar if Mr. Icahn were to have a role in or control over the process," the filing states, without identifying Company A. Many, including the Wall Street Journal, have surmised that "Company A" in the filing may refer to Dollar General (DG).
06:03 EDTTWTRTwitter says paid $134.1M for Gnip
In May, the company completed its acquisition of privately held Gnip, a provider of social data and analytics headquartered in Boulder, Colorado. The acquisition is expected to allow the Company to further enhance its data analytics capabilities. Under the terms of the acquisition, the company agreed to pay $107.3M in cash and issue a total of 0.6M shares of common stock including shares of restricted stock subject to continued employment in consideration of all of the issued and outstanding shares of capital stock of Gnip. In addition, the Company agreed to issue up to 0.4M shares of the company’s stock as a result of assumed Gnip equity awards held by individuals, who will continue to provide services to the Company. The fair value of total consideration of $134.1M. During the six months ended June 30, the company acquired four other companies, which were accounted for as business combinations. The total purchase price of $55.5M for these acquisitions was preliminarily allocated as follows: $9.2M to developed technologies, $1.4M to net tangible assets acquired based on their estimated fair value on the acquisition date, $1.3M to deferred tax liability, and the excess $46.2M of the purchase price over the fair value of net assets acquired to goodwill. Goodwill resulting from these acquisitions is not expected to be deductible for U.S. income tax purposes.

10:50 EDTBIIBBiogen weakness attributed to Forward Pharma IPO filing
Shares of Biogen Idec (BIIB) came off their earlier highs and moved into negative ground in early trading, with some attributing the move lower to another pharmaceutical company, Forward Pharma (FWP), filing its registration statement with the SEC relating to a proposed initial public offering and reporting that Joel Sendek has been appointed CFO. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Forward Pharma focuses on a proprietary formulation of dimethyl fumarate, or DMF, for the treatment of multiple sclerosis. DMF is the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient, or API, found in Tecfidera, which Biogen Idec began selling for the treatment of RRMS following approval by the FDA in March 2013 and approval by the European Commission in February 2014, Forward Pharma indicated in its IPO filing. In addition to its filing, Forward Pharma announced this morning that it has hired Joel Sendek from Stifel Financial, where he served as Managing Director, Biotechnology and led the firm's healthcare equity research group. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Biogen are down fractionally in mid-morning trading after being up over 1% soon after today's opening bell.
