10:05 EDTCBIChicago Bridge & Iron likely responsible for some delay costs, says Macquarie
Macquarie says Chicago Bridge & Iron (CBI) will likely be held responsible for some of the costs associated with the Vogtle Units project delay. It notes Southern Company (SO) and Georgia Power think the contractor consortium is responsible for around $1.2B in overages. Macquarie thinks that while CB&I indicated it will not be held responsible, it finds that "highly unlikely." The firm has an Underperform rating on Chicago Bridge & Iron with a $30 price target. The stock is down 11% in early trading to $34.10.
09:59 EDTCBIChicago Bridge & Iron sinks after Plant Vogtle delay
Georgia Power disclosed last night that it has been notified by Westinghouse Electric and Chicago Bridge & Iron (CBI) / Stone & Webster of the contractor’s revised forecast for completion of Plant Vogtle Units 3 and 4, which would incrementally delay the previously disclosed estimated in-service dates by 18 months from Q4 of 2017 to Q2 of 2019 for Unit 3 and from Q4 of 2018 to the Q2 of 2020 for Unit 4. Georgia Power said it has not agreed to any changes to the guaranteed completion dates and does not believe that the contractor’s revised forecast reflects "all efforts that may be possible to mitigate" the delay. In addition, Georgia Power believes the contractor is responsible for the contractor’s costs related to the delay. It believes the co-owners are entitled to recover liquidated damages for the delay beyond the guaranteed substantial completion dates of April 2016 and April 2017 for Plant Vogtle Units 3 and 4, respectively. Shares of contractor Chicago Bridge & Iron are down 10% following the news.

07:03 EDTDOWDow Chemical sees lower oil prices as relative positive
Commenting on the Company’s outlook, Liveris said: “Against the backdrop of ongoing macroeconomic, currency and energy market uncertainty, we continue to see positive underlying demand fundamentals. Dow is well positioned to continue to optimize returns in this environment: Our advantaged global cost positions are enabling us to increase asset utilization, while selling into higher value sectors. Tightening supply and demand is acting to offset some of the challenges that are a result of falling oil prices. Our differentiated technologies and end-market selection will enable us to maximize returns in sectors less susceptible to pricing volatility. Our business model works across all economic cycles, as we can extract value through different parts of our integrated value chains – depending on the cycle. We believe lower oil prices are a relative positive for Dow and a boost for the global economy. We will continue to control those factors firmly within our control – demanding operational and commercial excellence, driving proactive portfolio management and productivity actions, executing financial discipline, efficiently managing our cash and investing in people, markets and assets for long-term growth."
