09:29 EDTGFIGGFI Group responds to unsoliciated acquisition proposal from BGC Partners
GFI Group (GFIG) has received an unsolicited proposal from BGC Partners (BGCP) to acquire all the shares of common stock of the company for $5.25 per share in cash. The board of the company, upon the recommendation of its special committee, has determined in good faith, after consultation with outside legal counsel and independent financial advisors, that the Proposal could reasonably be expected to lead to a "Superior Proposal" as defined in the existing merger agreement with CME Group (CME). That determination allows the company to provide information to and conduct discussions and negotiations with BGC subject to the execution of a confidentiality agreement, but does not allow the company to terminate its agreement with CME or enter into any other agreement with BGC. The company's board of directors has not changed its recommendation with respect to, and continues to support, the pending transaction with CME.

07:41 EDTGSBank lending grew in quarter, with Capital One leading pack, WSJ reports
Total loans outstanding at U.S. banks and thrifts grew by $178.5B in the second quarter, with Capital One Financial (COF) leading the big banks by growing its loans at an annualized rate of 12.5%, according to SNL Financial data, reported The Wall Street Journal. SNL said 14 of the 15 largest U.S. banks increased their lending, with only Bank of America (BAC) issuing fewer loans than the quarter before, largely attributed to a drop in U.S. closed-end residential mortgages, the report noted. Other publicly traded large U.S. banks include Bank of America (BAC), Citigroup (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), Morgan Stanley (MS), U.S. Bancorp (USB) and Wells Fargo (WFC). Reference Link
