08:09 EDTDLTRFamily Dollar says sales trends in March 'rebounded nicely'
"We continue to see tangible benefits from the investments we have made to strengthen our value proposition for customers. Our comparable store sales and customer traffic trends are improving, and we are beginning to see stabilization in key categories. While our trends in late-February were adversely impacted by severe winter weather, our sales trends in March rebounded nicely, reflecting both improved traffic trends and the benefit of an earlier Easter,” said Howard R. Levine, Chairman and CEO. “We are excited about the pending merger with Dollar Tree, and our teams are working to ensure a successful integration.”
08:05 EDTDLTRFamily Dollar says not providing guidance
On January 22, Family Dollar (FDO) stockholders adopted the merger agreement with Dollar Tree (DLTR). The completion of the merger remains subject to Federal Trade Commission clearance under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended, and other closing conditions. Dollar Tree, with support from Family Dollar, is continuing to work with the FTC to obtain clearance under the HSR Act, including in connection with arranging for divestitures. Dollar Tree has informed Family Dollar that Dollar Tree intends to close the merger by the end of May 2015. In light of the pending transaction, the company has not provided earnings guidance for fiscal 2015 and will not hold a conference call to discuss its second quarter results.

16:38 EDTDLTRDollar Tree discloses update on FTC review process of Family Dollar acquisition
Dollar Tree (DLTR) disclosed in a regulatory filing, the following update on the Federal Trade Commission’s review process of the company’s pending acquisition of Family Dollar Stores (FDO). As of April 1, the FTC’s staff has substantially completed its review and identified approximately 340 stores for divestiture, representing approximately $47.4M of operating income. The company expects that all or almost all of the stores that will be divested will be Family Dollar stores. The company continues to make progress with divestiture buyers and has received multiple indications of interest from buyers, each of whom intend to operate these divested locations as dollar stores to address the FTC's concerns. The company is working to finalize divestiture agreements with the selected bidders in April 2015 and in parallel to secure FTC approval. The company intends to close the proposed merger in May, but this timing is subject to certain factors beyond the company’s control, including FTC approval.

10:01 EDTVZWeather Channel's core buiness facing 'major' threat, WSJ reports
The Weather Channel, which is owned by a consortium made up of NBCUniversal (CMCSA) and private equity firms Bain Capital and The Blackstone Group (BX), was dropped last month from Verizon's (VZ) FiOS TV service, and now the channel's backers are preparing for the possibility of being dropped by Dish Network (DISH), sources tell The Wall Street Journal. Though The Weather Channel is facing a "major" threat to its core business, the fees it collects from the pay-TV providers, the sources say that no formal sale by the company's owners is under way.

06:45 EDTVZQualcomm downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at FBR Capital
FBR Capital downgraded Qualcomm (QCOM) to Market Perform, removed the stock from its Top Picks list and dropped its price target for shares to $72 from $80. FBR said the moves were prompted by a posting on AT&T's (T) website which said the carrier’s version of the GS6 smarphone is powered by the Samsung Exynos 7420 processor with a Shannon 333 modem as opposed to Qualcomm's Snapdragon platform. FBR still expects the Verizon (VZ) and Sprint (S) GS6 versions to sport Qualcomm modems, but it believes the change at AT&T signals Samsung’s "clear intent to utilize proprietary baseband whenever and wherever possible." Shares of chip maker Qualcomm closed Thursday down $1.46 to $67.97.
