07:04 EDTCGCarlyle Group agrees to acquire Blyth for $98M
Carlyle Group (CG) and Blyth (BTH) announced they have entered into a definitive agreement under which Carlyle Group will acquire all of Blyth's outstanding shares of common stock in a transaction valuing Blyth at $98M, equating to $6.00 per share, which represents a premium of approximately 105% over the closing price of Blyth common stock on Friday, August 28 and a premium of 65% over Blyth's 30-day average share price as of such date. The transaction has been unanimously approved by Blyth's board and will be completed by means of a tender offer followed by a merger. Under the terms of the definitive agreement, an affiliate of Carlyle Group will commence a tender offer for all of Blyth's outstanding shares of common stock at $6.00 per share in cash. The tender offer is conditioned on Blyth's stockholders tendering at least a majority of Blyth's outstanding shares in the tender offer, early termination or expiration of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act and other customary closing conditions. The acquisition is expected to close in Q4. The financing for the transaction will come from Carlyle Equity Opportunity Fund, a $1.1B U.S. middle-market buyout fund. Robert B. Goergen, Blyth's chairman of the board, and Robert Goergen, Jr., Blyth's president and CEO, who beneficially own approximately 38% of Blyth's outstanding shares of common stock, have committed to support the tender offer.

06:56 EDTCGCarlyle has little luck with hedge funds, WSJ reports
Carlyle Group has often seen the hazards of running hedge funds, with its Carlyle Capital fund becoming a harbinger for the 2008 financial crisis and its Blue Wave Partners hedge fund ending abruptly a few months later, the New York Times says. As recently as last week, the company announced that its credit-focused hedge fund Claren Road Asset Management faced roughly $2B in investor redemption requests, the report says. Though the company makes money in its core buyout business as well as in other areas, its track record with hedge funds has been murky at best, the report says. Reference Link

06:36 EDTNLSNBernstein cuts Disney, Time Warner with TV entering 'structural decline'
Bernstein analyst Todd Juenger downgraded his rating on both Disney (DIS) and Time Warner (TWX) saying the U.S. television industry is entering a period of "prolonged structural decline." With viewers moving away from ad-supported platforms to non-ad-supported, media companies with the least exposure to U.S. advertising represent the most favorable investments, Juenger tells investors in a 48-page research note on the Media sector. The analyst moved both companies to a Market Perform rating from Outperform, and lowered his price target for Disney to $114 from $125 and for Time Warner to $90 from $101. He called the downgrade of Time Warner a "very close call" as his new price target still represents 15% upside from current levels. Share performance in the entire Media sector will be challenged until the content owners take steps to "reclaim on-demand viewing" from streaming services like Netflix (NFLX) and use it to protect affiliate fees, Juenger argues. His Outperform-rated names are Nielsen (NLSN) and 21st Century Fox (FOXA). Along with Time Warner and Disney, the analyst has Market Perform ratings on AMC Networks (AMCX), CBS (CBS), Scripps Networks (SNI) and Discovery (DISCA). Juenger has an Underperform rating on Viacom (VIAB). Wells Fargo on Tuesday also downgraded Disney to Market Perform. Piper Jaffray this morning told investors that the recent pullback in shares of AMC Networks brings a "great" entry point into the name.
