10:10 EDTCNH, FNDSF, FIATYFiat Industrial submits final offer for CNH Global with $10/share dividend
Fiat Industrial (FNDSF) announced that it has submitted its best and final offer to the board of CNH Global (CNH) regarding the proposed strategic combination between Fiat Industrial and CNH. Fiat said the final offer preserves the essential components of its original offer of May 30, which contemplated the merger of each of Fiat Industrial and CNH into a newly-formed company in the Netherlands in which CNH shareholders would receive 3.828 NewCo shares for each CNH share and Fiat Industrial shareholders would receive one NewCo share for each Fiat Industrial share. To improve upon this original proposal, Fiat Industrialís final offer contemplates adding a cash dividend of $10 per CNH share to be paid to CNH shareholders prior to the merger and if practicable, prior to the end of this year. Adding the special dividend represents a 25.6% improvement over the implied value of the original proposal, plus the value associated with an accelerated distribution, Fiat said. Fiat Industrial will withdraw the offer and terminate discussions on the proposed merger unless the CNH board advises Fiat Industrial by 11:59 pm Eastern Standard Time on Wednesday, November 21, that it is prepared to recommend the terms of Fiat Industrialís final offer in their entirety and the parties enter into a definitive merger agreement by Sunday, November 25. If the offer is not accepted, Fiat Industrial said it intends to proceed with the other aspects of the proposed transaction, including the merger of Fiat Industrial with a newly formed company incorporated in the Netherlands with shares listed in New York and Milan.

12:33 EDTFIATYOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher to begin the day, as reports spurred optimism that a ceasefire agreement between Russia and the Ukraine may soon be reached. The move was short lived, as the averages turned mixed during the second hour of trading. Shares of Apple (AAPL) are weighing down the Nasdaq after an analyst recommended investors take some profits in the stock. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., factory orders rose 10.5% in July, which was a bit below the forecast for 11.0% growth. The Fed's Beige Book is scheduled to be released at 2:00 pm ET. In Europe, the final reading of Eurozone services PMI was knocked down to 53.1 from a preliminary 53.5 reading, mirroring the lowering of the Eurozone manufacturing PMI reading yesterday. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Apple retreated 4% after research firm Pacific Crest advised investors to take some profits in the stock. Pacific Crest analyst Andy Hargreaves forecast the percentage of new iPhone users who buy the next version of the device beyond the iPhone 6 is likely to decline versus prior cycles. The stock likely has only limited room to increase, according to Hargreaves, who said he would probably downgrade Apple unless new products that can generate billions of dollars in new operating profit are launched at its September 9 event... Carmakers reported on August vehicle sales in the U.S., with Chrysler (FIATY) reporting a 20% increase, Ford stating that sales rose slightly compared to the prior year and General Motors (GM) posting a 1.2% decline in sales. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Infinity Pharmaceuticals (INFI), which jumped 46% after the company announced a cancer drug collaboration with AbbVie (ABBV) and a master clinical supply agreement with Roche (RHHBY). Also higher was Mobileye (MBLY), which gained nearly 10% after Morgan Stanley wrote that the stock could rise "towards $100" if the company maintains its current market, gross margins and earnings position. Mobileye is scheduled to report on its second quarter results tomorrow morning, which will be its first quarterly report since its August IPO. Among the noteworthy losers was Repros Therapeutics (RPRX), which dropped 15% after newly posted FDA briefing documents regarding a panel on T-normalizing therapies prompted Piper Jaffray to downgrade the stock to Neutral from Overweight. Also lower following its earnings report was apparel company Vince Holding (VNCE), which fell 11%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 33.71, or 0.2%, to 17,101.27, the Nasdaq was down 23.24, or 0.51%, to 4,574.95, and the S&P 500 was down 0.64, or 0.03%, to 2,001.64.
