08:28 EDTAXSEXOR says offer for PartnerRe 'superior by all significant measures'
EXOR S.p.A., the largest shareholder of PartnerRe Ltd. (PRE), is entering the second week of meetings with PartnerRe analysts and investors to ensure the maximum clarity regarding its offer for PartnerRe shareholders. EXOR says it "has received a positive response for its offer and for the presentation of the merits, certainty and superiority of its $137.50 per share, all-cash binding offer. In the face of the compelling facts presented by EXOR, after having already disseminated false statements on the EXOR transaction not endorsed by Standard & Poor’s PartnerRe continues its irresponsible campaign of intentionally and inappropriately misleading its shareholders. The more the PartnerRe board misleads its shareholders on the merits of the EXOR offer the clearer it is that the inferior AXIS (AXS) transaction is short on substance and long on execution and integration risks for its shareholders, employees and clients. EXOR is soliciting common and preferred shareholders to vote AGAINST the proposed AXIS transaction at the upcoming Special General Meeting of PartnerRe shareholders to be held on July 24. This will enable PartnerRe to accept EXOR’s superior offer for the company."

06:04 EDTIBMOracle says extending enterprise cloud portfolio
At a live event yesterday, Oracle (ORCL) Executive Chairman of the Board and CTO Larry Ellison announced new additions to the Oracle Cloud Platform, a comprehensive, integrated suite of services that make it easier for developers, IT professionals, business users and analysts to build, extend and integrate cloud applications. With more than 24 new cloud services, the Oracle Cloud Platform "extends Oracle's leadership with the world's broadest and deepest portfolio" of SaaS, PaaS and IaaS. Newly available Oracle Cloud services include, Oracle Database Cloud - Exadata, Oracle Archive Storage Cloud, Oracle Big Data Cloud, Oracle Integration Cloud, Oracle Mobile Cloud, and Oracle Process Cloud. The Oracle Cloud Platform helps customers build new applications, extend existing ones, and easily move existing on-premises workloads to the cloud with no application changes. The services are designed to maximize end user experience and productivity; enable developers to manage and analyze data, rapidly develop, test and deploy applications; enable architects to quickly integrate across on-premises and cloud applications; and enable business users to drive rich business insights and enterprise collaboration. With the Oracle Cloud Platform, customers and partners are able to take advantage of the industry-leading Oracle middleware and database software that thousands of global organizations already use to run their own businesses, all delivered via cloud. The extensive level of automation that has been engineered into the Oracle Cloud, results in faster time-to-value, greater innovation, and lower cost for customers. "Oracle is growing really fast. We sold $426M worth of business in SaaS and PaaS last quarter, a 200 percent increase over the same quarter last year. That's an industry record, no company has ever sold that much in just one quarter," said Ellison. "Oracle is the only company on the planet that can deliver a complete, integrated, standards-based suite of services at every layer of the cloud. Those technology advantages enable us to be much more cost-effective than our competitors. Our new Archive Storage service goes head-to-head with Amazon Glacier (AMZN) and it's one-tenth their price."

18:12 EDTRKTS&P announces changes to S&P 100, 400, 500, and 600 indices
S&P Dow Jones Indices will make the following changes to the S&P 100, S&P 500, S&P MidCap 400 and S&P SmallCap 600 indices: S&P 500 constituent The Priceline Group (PCLN) will replace Baxter International (BAX) in the S&P 100, Baxalta (BXLT) will replace QEP Resources (QEP) in the S&P 500, QEP Resources will replace Itron (ITRI) in the S&P MidCap 400, and Itron will replace Arch Coal (ACI) in the S&P SmallCap 600 after the close of trading on Tuesday, June 30. Baxter International is spinning off Baxalta in a transaction expected to be completed on that date. Baxter International will remain in the S&P 500 following the distribution, but its post spin market capitalization will no longer make it appropriate for the S&P 100. QEP Resources, Itron and Arch Coal are all ranked near or at the bottom of their current indices. Skechers USA (SKX) will replace Rock-Tenn Co. (RKT) in the S&P MidCap 400, and MiMedx Group (MDXG) will replace Skechers USA in the S&P SmallCap 600 after the close of trading on Tuesday, June 30. S&P 500 constituent MeadWestvaco Corp. (MWV) is combining with Rock-Tenn in a transaction expected to be completed on or about that date. The combined company will remain in the S&P 500 and will change its name to WestRock Co. HealthEquity (HQY) will replace Zep Inc. (ZEP) in the S&P SmallCap 600 after the close of trading on Thursday, June 25. Private equity firm New Mountain Capital is acquiring Zep in a transaction expected to be completed on or about that date pending final approvals.
