09:01 EDTCTTAYEnPro acquires Veyance North American Spring Business from Continental AG
EnPro (NPO) Industries announced it has completed its acquisition of the Veyance North American air springs business from Continental AG (CTTAY). The acquisition agreement was previously announced on June 3, 2015, subject to certain regulatory approvals that have been cleared. The air springs business unit is the manufacturer of Goodyear air springs that are used in suspension systems, cabs and seats of commercial vehicles. Previously part of Veyance Technologies, Inc., which Continental AG acquired in January 2015, the business will become part of EnPro’s Stemco division. Stemco is a leader in the technology and manufacture of commercial vehicle wheel end, braking, and suspension components, as well as innovative tire and mileage solutions. The air spring business unit manufactures Goodyear air springs products in its facility in San Luis Potosi, Mexico with a commercial organization in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, and engineering, testing, and administrative resources in Fairlawn, Ohio. The addition of the air springs business unit significantly expands Stemco’s presence and scale in the commercial vehicle suspension market. The business generates approximately $100M in revenue with a fairly even split between OEM and aftermarket sales. EnPro paid approximately $20M for the business, which equates to approximately 4.1x EBITDA including estimated integration costs. The business brings a highly-skilled workforce of approximately 530 employees. EnPro will provide additional detail about the acquisition during its Q2 earnings call on July 31, 2015.

13:39 EDTCBTCabot price target lowered to $52 from $56 at Jefferies after SCOTUS ruling
Jefferies said that the Supreme Court objection to the EPA's Mercury Admissions and Toxic Standard likely delayed a higher pollutants standard by several years. Cabot (CBT), which produces activated carbon used to reduce mercury, will incur an impairment charge of about $450M on the news, the firm noted, while lowering its price target on the shares to $52 from $56. The news removes a source of bromine growth for Albemarle (ALB), the firm said, but it doesn't believe its estimates need to be cut in reaction, citing demand from state emission reduction laws. Jefferies has Buy ratings on Albemarle and Cabot.

09:08 EDTGTGoodyear Tire to close Wolverhampton, U.K., facility, cut 360-390 positions
The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company said in a regulatory filing that on June 23, it approved rationalization plans in its Europe, Middle East and Africa strategic business unit in order to strengthen the company’s global competiveness. The rationalization plans include closing the Wolverhampton, United Kingdom mixing and retreading facility and transferring its production to existing manufacturing facilities across EMEA. The plans also include the transfer of consumer tire production from the manufacturing facility in Wittlich, Germany to existing manufacturing facilities in EMEA. These plans, which will result in a net reduction of approximately 360 to 390 associate positions, remain subject to consultation with relevant employee representative bodies.The company expects to be substantially complete with these rationalization plans by the end of 2016 and estimates total charges associated with these actions to be between $70M-$80M, or $60M-$70M after taxes and minority interest, of which $55M-$60M is expected to be cash charges primarily related to severance payments and contractual obligations and approximately $15M-$20M is expected to be non-cash charges primarily related to accelerated depreciation and other asset related charges. The company expects to record approximately $30M of charges in the second quarter of 2015 associated with these plans. Charges of approximately $10M are expected to be recognized in the second half of 2015.Once completed, these actions are expected to improve EMEA segment operating income by approximately $30M annually, beginning in 2017.
