16:38 EDTDLTRDollar Tree discloses update on FTC review process of Family Dollar acquisition
Dollar Tree (DLTR) disclosed in a regulatory filing, the following update on the Federal Trade Commission’s review process of the company’s pending acquisition of Family Dollar Stores (FDO). As of April 1, the FTC’s staff has substantially completed its review and identified approximately 340 stores for divestiture, representing approximately $47.4M of operating income. The company expects that all or almost all of the stores that will be divested will be Family Dollar stores. The company continues to make progress with divestiture buyers and has received multiple indications of interest from buyers, each of whom intend to operate these divested locations as dollar stores to address the FTC's concerns. The company is working to finalize divestiture agreements with the selected bidders in April 2015 and in parallel to secure FTC approval. The company intends to close the proposed merger in May, but this timing is subject to certain factors beyond the company’s control, including FTC approval.

06:06 EDTMELIMercadoLibre sees Q1 charge of $15M-$18M for foreign exchange
MercadoLibre disclosed last night that on February 10, the Venezuelan government issued a decree that unifies the two previous foreign exchange systems that are frequently referred to as SICAD 1 and SICAD 2 into a new single system denominated SICAD, with an initial public foreign exchange price of 12 Bolivares Fuertes per U.S. dollar. It added, "In light of the disappearance of SICAD 2, and the Company’s inability to gain access to U.S. dollars through the new single system under SICAD, the Company started requesting and has been granted U.S. dollars through SIMADI. As a result, the Company now expects to settle its transactions through SIMADI and has concluded that the SIMADI exchange rate should be used to re-measure its bolivar-denominated." Considering this change in facts and circumstances and the lower U.S. dollar-equivalent cash flows now expected from its Venezuelan business, MercadoLibre is reviewing its long-lived assets, goodwill and intangible assets with indefinite useful life for impairment, and estimates that the carrying value of certain real estate investments in Venezuela as of March 31 will not be fully recoverable. As a result, the company has estimated a one-time charge of approximately $15M-$18M to be recorded in Q1. MercadoLibre also expects to recognize a foreign exchange loss of between $18M-$23M and a deferred income tax gain of between $1.5M-$4.5M derived from the loss on foreign exchange related to the revaluation of its U.S. dollar-denominated liabilities during Q1.

06:35 EDTVMWVMware upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Nomura
Nomura upgraded VMware to Buy with a $95 price target following favorable survey results. The firm's Q1 survey came in slightly ahead of plan and believes the Street is too cautious on shares, which could serve as a positive catalyst for shares. Separately, Nomura said the upcoming end of Windows Server 2003 in July could be an incremental catalyst as replacement servers will likely be virtualized.
