17:01 EDTCVEOGreenlight Capital reports 9.99% stake in Civeo Corp., urges CEO change
On September 29, the company announced that following an assessment by its board of directors of structural alternatives for the company, the board concluded that it would continue as a corporation and redomicile to Canada. The company stated that the board considered, among other alternatives, a potential conversion to a real estate investment trust. Since the announcement, Greenlight Capital has had conversations with the board and management of the company, and expect to continue having such conversations. During these constructive conversations with the board, Greenlight Capital made the following suggestions as to what the company should do: 1) the company should take on leverage to make its capital structure more appropriate for a real estate company; 2) the company should implement an aggressive program of returning capital to shareholders through a well-communicated dividend policy; and 3) the company should replace the CEO, Bradley Dodson, who Greenlight Capital believes has lost the support and confidence of the company’s shareholders. Greenlight Capital expects to continue to discuss the company’s structural alternatives and other matters related to it with directors and officers of the company, other shareholders and third parties. These may include discussions regarding Greenlight Capital’s views on issues relating to the strategic direction undertaken by the company and other matters of interest to stockholders generally.

08:27 EDTGTIVKindred sees Gentiva deal immediately and significantly accretive
Kindred (KND) expects the acquisition of Gentiva (GTIV) will be immediately and significantly accretive to earnings and operating cash flows, exclusive of transaction and integration costs. Kindred expects the acquisition to be approximately 40c-60c accretive to pro forma earnings, and pro forma operating cash flows of $350 million to $400 million, both on a run rate basis, once Gentiva is fully integrated and expected synergies are fully realized in the second full year following the closing. On this same basis, following the combined company’s expected annual maintenance capital expenditures of $120 million to $130 million, Kindred expects pro forma cash flows of $230 million to $270 million. Kindred has identified approximately $70 million of annual cost and operating synergies and expects to achieve the full run rate within two years of closing, of which approximately $35 million is expected to be achieved in the first year following the closing. Kindred expects the majority of cost synergies to be achieved through combining information technology functions, merging supply chains and eliminating redundant public company expenses. In addition, Kindred expects to realize revenue synergies that will improve patient care transitions and choice, and drive volume growth as a result of cross-selling across the combined service platform. Kindred expects annual run rate revenue synergies of more than $60 million over time, with approximately $20 million to $30 million achievable in the first full year following the closing.
