08:56 EDTDDAIF, BBRY, EADSYBlackBerry introduces BlackBerry Enterprise Service 12
BlackBerry (BBRY) unveiled plans for BlackBerry Enterprise Service 12, or BES12, a new enterprise mobility solution that is application-enabled and unifies BES10 and BES5 to one platform. BlackBerry's enterprise strategy is to extend beyond EMM to an application-based environment and ecosystem that provides a highly productive end-user experience. BlackBerry also announced a new EZ Pass program that provides free migration for customers to move from BES and other MDM platforms to BES10 as well as a new pricing structure. For existing BlackBerry customers, the EZ Pass program will match any active existing on-premise BES license and any active license customers may have from other MDM vendors with a corresponding Silver level BES10 perpetual license. BlackBerry also revealed some of the latest companies to adopt BES10, including Daimler AG (DDAIF) and Airbus Group (EADSY). The BES12 platform is expected to be available by the end of 2014. An early adopter program will be open for participation this summer. The Silver and Gold pricing structure will be in effect beginning March 31.

08:55 EDTDDAIFDaimler AG announces it denies 'any and all; allegations of manipulation
In response to the assertions from the Deutsche Umwelthilfe, Daimler AG announced the following statement: "We categorically deny the accusation of manipulating emission tests regarding our vehicles. A defeat device, a function which illegitimately reduces emissions during testing, has never been and will never be used at Daimler. This holds true for both diesel and petrol engines. Our engines meet and adhere to every legal requirement. In light of the written request by the DUH, which was sent to us this morning with a deadline to respond by 3:00 pm, and the seven questions they posed, we can confirm that none of the allegations apply to our vehicles. The technical programming of our engines adheres to all legal requirements. We have no knowledge of measurements that indicate our vehicles did not meet legally required standards. We actively support the work being done within Europe and Germany in order to develop new testing methods which measure emissions based on real driving conditions. We work closely and constructively with the responsible authorities in Germany, Europe and the United States and will willingly provide any vehicle for testing."

07:41 EDTDDAIFBMW X3 said to exceed EU emission limit, Bloomberg reports
According to German-language magazine Autobild, BMW's (BAMXY) X3 xDrive 20d sport utility vehicle was found to emit as much as 11 times the European limit for emissions in a road test, reported Bloomberg. "There is no function to recognize emissions testing cycles at BMW. All emissions systems remain active outside the testing cycles," BMW said in a statement in response to the report. Shares of BMW trading in Germany fell over 9% following the report, while peers Daimler (DDAIF) and Volkswagen (VLKAY) declined as well, as investors fear that VW's emissions scandal in the U.S. may spread to Europe.

14:52 EDTDDAIFNavistar slides after VW scandal makes potential takeover unlikely
Shares of truck maker Navistar (NAV) have been under pressure since the start of the Volkswagen (VLKAY) emissions probe. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Navistar, which is based in the U.S., has long been seen as a possible target of Volkswagen. Navistar would give Volkswagen a footing in the U.S commercial truck market and allow it to better compete with Daimler (DDAIF) and Volvo (VOLVY) in that sector. On March 5, shares of Navistar jumped after The Deal's senior transportation writer Lou Whiteman wrote that the company could become a target for Volkswagen, Daimler or PACCAR (PCAR). Earlier today, Dow Jones wrote that Volkswagen's growing scandal over diesel engine emissions will likely distract the German automaker's interest in Navistar. PRICE ACTION: Since September 18, when the EPA first announced it was issuing a notice of violation to Volkswagen, shares of Navistar are down approximately 19%. Navistar is at a 52-week low, down over 8% to $13.70 in afternoon trading.
14:14 EDTDDAIFVolkswagen shares jump as CEO Winterkorn departs
Shares of Volkswagen (VLKAY) trading in New York have jumped following the resignation of Chief Executive Officer Martin Winterkorn, with the company's supervisory board subsequently praising the decision and saying it will consider his replacement at a meeting Friday. Prior to the news, several analysts made their own arguments regarding the stock, appearing quite bearish but saying long-term value still remains for Volkswagen even as it grapples with what could be years of fallout from its recent emissions failure. ANALYST OPINION: Several research firms weighed in on Volkswagen's ongoing emissions scandal this morning prior to Winterkorn announcing his resignation as CEO. Credit Suisse analyst Dan Galves commented more broadly that the events surrounding the emissions violations "will likely impact all OEM's that sell vehicles in Europe," explaining that European air pollution tests are "very misleading" and feature notable loopholes. The Volkswagen scandal could accelerate stricter testing standards, resulting in higher compliance costs for automakers as well as weakened appeal for diesel engines, according to Galves. Autoparts suppliers with exposure to diesel vehicles like BorgWarner (BWA) and Delphi (DLPH) may see a "modest drag" if consumer sentiment shifts, though Magna (MGA) could benefit from increased compliance spending, added the analyst. Meanwhile, JPMorgan's Jose Asumendi downgraded Volkswagen to Neutral from Overweight. The analyst noted that the North American engine recall is not his primary worry, but rather the company's European exposure, especially given the potential for additional investigations and the lack of clarity on the company's total liability. Separately, Deutsche Bank analyst Tim Rokossa downgraded the stock to Hold and cut his price target to EUR130 from EUR260. Though the stock's recent slip may look like a buying opportunity, the complete impact of the scandal will likely take "much longer" to unfold, stressed Rokossa. Beyond "very painful" legal fees, the scandal's impact on Volkswagen operations is the more key concern as damage to the Volkswagen and Audi brands pressures pricing, argued Rokossa. Volkswagen was also downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Nataxis this morning. In addition to the downgrades, Fitch Ratings placed Volkswagen's ratings, including its 'A' Long-term Issuer Default Rating, on Rating Watch Negative, reflecting "the reputational damage" on the group's brands the emission test scandal and the expected multi-billion euros financial impact from potential fines, recall costs, lawsuits and legal claims. CEO EXIT: Martin Winterkorn stepped down as CEO of Volkswagen on Wednesday as the company's emissions scandal continued to unfold. The former Chief Executive stated, "I am stunned that misconduct on such a scale was possible in the Volkswagen Group. As CEO I accept responsibility for the irregularities that have been found in diesel engines and have therefore requested the supervisory board to agree on terminating my function as CEO... I am doing this in the interests of the company even though I am not aware of any wrong doing on my part...The process of clarification and transparency must continue. This is the only way to win back trust." Winterkorn's announcement was quickly followed by a statement from the supervisory board itself, saying its executive committee "recognizes not only the economic damage caused, but also the loss of trust among many customers worldwide." The executive committee explained that recommendations for new personnel will be presented at an upcoming board meeting this Friday, but cautioned that it is expecting "further personnel consequences in the next days" as its internal investigations continue "at a high tempo." Importantly, the board also stated that it will voluntarily submit a complaint to the State Prosecutors' office in Brunswick, remarking that "criminal proceedings may be relevant." Possible replacements for Winterkorn include Matthias Mueller, head of the Porsche brand who has the support of the family that controls a majority stake of VW, and Herbert Diess, who recently joined from BMW (BAMXY), said Bloomberg, citing a person familiar with the matter. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Volkswagen trading in New York have advanced 8.3% to $27.55 in afternoon trading following Winterkorn's departure, though the company's American Depository Receipts have crashed nearly 28% since the emissions failure became public. Fellow German automakers BMW and Daimler (DDAIF) have also suffered double digit percentage declines in their New York listed shares since news of the scandal.

07:20 EDTEADSYBoeing, Airbus set for China orders but don't know when, Bloomberg says
Boeing (BA) and Airbus (EADSY) are set to bring in a haul of aircraft orders from China's airlines as planners plot growth through 2020, though there is a question as to when such moves will happen, Bloomberg reports. For Boeing, the first deals could be announced as early as this week when China president Xi Jinping tours the company's factory in Seattle, the report says. China's government signs off on all aircraft purchases and often waits for U.S. state visits before making such disclosures, the report says. Reference Link
