09:43 EDTCMEISS recommends GFI shareholders vote against merger with CME Group
BGC Partners (BGCP) announced that Institutional Shareholder Services has recommended that shareholders of GFI Group Inc. (GFIG) vote AGAINST the merger agreement with CME Group (CME) at the special meeting of GFI shareholders scheduled for January 27, 2015. Howard Lutnick, Chairman and CEO of BGC, said: "We are pleased that, after thorough and independent analysis, ISS recognizes the economic inferiority and conflicted nature of the proposed CME-GFI management $5.85 stock and cash transaction, as well as the economic superiority of BGC's $6.10 all-cash offer. We also note that ISS recommends that GFI shareholders tender their shares to BGC as long as the CME-GFI management bid remains below our offer price. We remain fully committed to completing this transaction and urge shareholders to protect the value of their investment in GFI by voting against all of the proposals related to the CME transaction at the special meeting of GFI shareholders. We also remind GFI shareholders to tender their shares into our clearly superior offer in order to receive the higher value to which they are entitled." In its analysis, ISS noted the following regarding the proposed CME transaction: "As the proposed transaction is economically inferior to the unsolicited all-cash competing offer, yet it is not at all clear that unaffiliated shareholders incur any greater downside risk in holding out for the economically superior offer from this ongoing bidding war, shareholders should vote AGAINST the proposed transaction on its current terms….and, if that offer does not improve to at least parity with the BGC bid, tender into the BGC offer instead..."

06:42 EDTBCSECB most likely will unveil bond buying program, NY Times says
The European Central Bank is "all but certain" to announce at its next meeting that it will buy government bonds, according to The New York Times. But the ECB may announce that it will buy bonds but say that it will only provide details about the program in March, some believe, the newspaper reported. Some economists contend that the initiative could be a case of "too little, too late," The Times added. Publicly traded European banks include Banco Santander (SAN), Barclays (BCS), Credit Suisse (CS), Deutsche Bank (DB), HSBC (HSBC), ING Groep (ING), Lloyds Banking (LYG), RBS (RBS) and UBS (UBS).
