12:19 EDTIRIngersoll-Rand rises after agreeing to buy Cameron unit for $850M
Shares of Ingersoll-Rand (IR), which makes heating and air conditioning systems, are up after it announced an agreement to acquire the assets of Cameron International Corporation's (CAM) Centrifugal Compression division for $850M. WHAT'S NEW: Ingersoll-Rand this morning entered into an agreement to acquire Cameron's Centrifugal Compression division for $850M. The acquisition is expected to close before the end of the year, subject to regulatory approval. The Cameron unit generated sales of approximately $400M in 2013, has approximately 850 employees and operates from 12 global locations. The results of operations of the Centrifugal Compression business will be reported as discontinued operations for Cameron beginning in the third quarter. Ingersoll Rand plans to fund the acquisition through a combination of cash on hand and debt. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Ingersoll-Rand said it expects the acquisition to be accretive to EBITDA margins, EPS, and ROIC in 2015 and beyond. The company expects the acquisition to add 8c-10c per share to its earnings in 2015. The company anticipates moderate incremental debt, supported by additional earnings from Cameron and core earnings growth. Ingersoll adds that it foresees refinancing of $500M of 2015 debt, and continues to expect a 2014 share repurchase of $1.38B. Cameron said it is selling the unit to focus on its core markets. The company expects after-tax proceeds of about $600M from the sale, part of which it planned to use to support share buybacks. ANALYST REACTION: Following the announcement, Wells Fargo analysts estimated that the acquisition will be approximately 10c-15c accretive excluding impact from synergies and approximately 20c-25c with anticipated synergies. PRICE ACTION: Ingersoll-Rand jumped $1.49, or 2.46%, to $62.03 in intra-day trading, while Cameron is trading down 0.6% to $72.21.
12:18 EDTSTThe Fly: Midday Wrap
The market opened in positive territory following news that Russia and Ukraine were working on a potential ceasefire. The market had faltered on Friday following reports that the Ukraine army had attacked a Russian military vehicle after it crossed into Ukraine territory. The market opened sharply higher and then received an additional boost when the NAHB Housing market Index came in above expectations. The averages quickly moved to session highs, lifting the S&P to its highest level ever and putting August on track for the best monthly performance since February. ECONOMIC EVENTS: The NAHB homebuilder sentiment index rose 2 points to 55 in August. The index had climbed 4 points to 53 in July. This is the highest level since January's 56. The single family sales index edged up to 58 from 56 (revised from 57). The future index was 65 from 63 (revised from 64). The index of prospective buyer traffic improved to 42 from 39 (revised from 39). Data was better than expected. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of discount retailer Dollar General (DG) were higher by about 10% after the company announced a proposal to acquire rival Family Dollar (FDO) for $78.50 per share in cash, in a transaction valued at $9.7B. Shares of Family Dollar rose approximately 5% on the news. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Sensata Technologies (ST), which rose 5.6% after after agreeing to buy privately held Schrader International for $1B. Also higher was Lannett (LCI), which gained 9.3% after the company said fourth quarter and full-year 2014 earnings per share and revenue would exceed analysts' consensus estimates. Among the noteworthy losers was Monster Beverage (MNST), which fell about 4% after research firm Jefferies downgraded the shares to Hold from Buy saying the valuation looks full following its recent rally. Also lower was NXP Semiconductors (NXPI), which dropped 2.3% after Goldman Sachs downgraded the company to Sell from Neutral, and downgraded the semiconductor sector to Cautious from Neutral. The firm expects consensus estimates to move lower due to cyclical headwinds, increased Q4 and Q1 seasonality, and a RF correction. Goldman lowered their price target on the shares to $54 from $58. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 168.13, or 1.01%, to 16,831.04, the Nasdaq rose 44.11, or 0.99%, to 4,508.87, and the S&P 500 was higher by 16.79, or 0.86%, to 1,971.88.

06:32 EDTIRCameron sells Centrifugal Compression business to Ingersoll-Rand for $850M
Cameron (CAM) has announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to sell its Centrifugal Compression business to Ingersoll Rand (IR) for cash consideration of approximately $850M, subject to closing adjustments. The decision to divest the Centrifugal Compression division was made after a careful review of Cameron's long-term business strategy to increase its focus on its core markets. The company's goal has been to identify a buyer that is more closely aligned with Centrifugal Compression's broad and global markets. Cameron expects to complete the sale of its Centrifugal Compression business prior to year end, subject to regulatory approval. The company estimates after tax proceeds from the sale to be approximately $600 million, and expects the net proceeds to support stock repurchases. In 2013, the Centrifugal Compression division had revenues of $396M. The results of operations of the Centrifugal Compression business will be reported as discontinued operations beginning in Q3.
