10:17 EDTCSFINRA fines Barclays Capital, Citigroup Global Markets, others $43.5M total
FINRA announced that it has fined 10 firms a total of $43.5M for allowing their equity research analysts to solicit investment banking business and for offering favorable research coverage in connection with the 2010 planned initial public offering of Toys"R"Us. FINRA fined the following firms. Barclays Capital (BCS) - $5M; Citigroup Global Markets (C) – $ 5M; Credit Suisse Securities (CS) – $5M; Goldman, Sachs & Co. (CS) – $5M; JP Morgan Securities LLC (JPM) – $5M; Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. (DB) – $4M; Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Inc. (BAC) – $4M; Morgan Stanley & Co., LLC (MS) – $4M; Wells Fargo Securities, LLC (WFC) – $4M; Needham & Company LLC – $2.5M. In addition, FINRA found that six of the 10 firms — Barclays, Citigroup, Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan and Needham — had inadequate supervisory procedures related to research analyst participation in investment banking pitches. Toys"R"Us and its sponsors offered each of the 10 firms various roles in the IPO but it eventually decided not to proceed with the offering. In settling this matter, the 10 firms neither admitted nor denied the charges, but consented to the entry of FINRA's findings.

07:03 EDTWLLWhiting Petroleum completes acquisition of Kodiak Oil & Gas
Whiting Petroleum Corporation (WLL) announced that it has completed its previously announced acquisition of Kodiak Oil & Gas Corp (KOG). The closing of the transaction follows the issuance of a final order by the Supreme Court of British Columbia approving the Arrangement on December 5, 2014. The all-stock transaction was previously approved by Whiting stockholders and Kodiak securityholders at special meetings held on December 3, 2014. The transaction enhances Whiting’s leading oil-weighted platform and is expected to drive production, reserve growth and operational efficiencies. Based on the closing price of Whiting stock on December 5, 2014, the combined company has a market capitalization of approximately $6.2B. As a result of the completion of the merger, the common stock of Kodiak Oil & Gas Corp. is no longer listed for trading on the New York Stock Exchange. Pursuant to the terms of the Arrangement, each share of common stock of Kodiak Oil & Gas Corp. will be exchanged for 0.177 of a share of Whiting common stock.
