09:51 EDTTITelecom Italia CEO says Tim Participacoes not in rush for deal, Reuters reports
Telecom Italia (TI) CEO Marco Emilio Patuano told Valor Economico that TIM Participaçoes (TSU) can remain competitive in Brazil for five years without losing market share and that it is not in a rush for potential mergers and acquisitions, reported Reuters. TIM Brasil reportedly hired an advisor to look at a potential bid for Oi (OIBR), a source told Reuters previously, and Oi itself has hired a bank as well to advise it on a possible bid for Telecom Italia's 67% stake in TIM Brasil, the report noted, but Patuano told Valor: "I find it curious to see public comments [on a potential Oi bid for TIM] well before there is any concrete possibility of such a thing happening. Telecom Italia is not seeking an offer." Reference Link
09:46 EDTGEGE signs contract with ENKA to supply power generation equipment in Iraq
GE has signed a contract with ENKA to supply power generation equipment for a new 750-megawatt combined-cycle plant being developed by Qaiwan Group in Iraq. GE will provide four 9E gas turbines and one steam turbine for a new power plant in Sulaimaniyah to support the government’s goal of strengthening the electricity infrastructure in the Kurdistan region. Through its regional partnerships, GE’s turbines support more than 90% of the electricity generated in the Kurdistan region, supplying nearly 20 hours of electricity a day. The Erbil, Sulaiymaniyah and Dohuk plants, powered by 24 GE 9E gas turbines, produce more than 3,000 MW, the equivalent to the required annual energy needs of approximately 3 million households in Iraq. The Bazyan plant will help deliver power to an additional 750,000 households.

08:13 EDTVZCorvex says Crown Castle, Verizon deal would 'diversify' revenues
Corvex said, "A Verizon (VZ) tower deal would diversify Crown Castle's (CCI) revenues and deepen the company's relationship with arguably the U.S.'s strongest wireless company and operator of the country's most robust network. As the largest and most-focused U.S. tower operator and the largest operator of legacy carrier portfolios, Crown Castle could be the best strategic acquirer of Verizon's tower assets. That does not mean the company will be best positioned financially to provide the highest and best bid though. Based on recent press articles, the potential sale price for the Verizon towers could be approximately $6B. However, we strongly believe that the company should not issue any equity at recent prices, and certainly not to acquire more tower assets at premium prices when Crown Castle continues to trade at a material discount to both transaction multiples and publicly traded peers."
