14:44 EDTCZRCaesar's may move assets into Caesars Growth Venture Partners, may sell stake
In a regulatory filing this morning, Caesar's Entertainment (CZR) said it is pursuing a strategic transaction that would see the company transfer certain of its assets to a newly created entity, named Caesars Growth Venture Partners, which would be a growth oriented vehicle focused on projects that are complementary to the company's existing properties. The company stated, "We anticipate that [Caesar's Entertainment Corporation] would own a significant portion of CGVPs equity interests and that subsidiaries of CEC would manage new casino properties owned by CGVP. We are pursuing this transaction because we believe it will improve our liquidity and credit profile, enhance our distribution network and provide additional support for potential new ventures...It is anticipated the Sponsors would participate in the transaction and that CECs other shareholders would have the opportunity to participate on the same terms." Among the assets that might be transferred into Caesars Growth Venture Partners, the company listed Planet Hollywood, its investment in a casino project under development in Baltimore, Maryland, shares of Caesars Interactive Entertainment and other holdings. Caesar's cautioned, "There are no commitments with respect to any such transaction and there have been no agreements with respect to price or value. The transfer of such assets would require the approval of regulators and other third parties, which we may not be able to obtain. Therefore, we cannot assure you that any such transaction will be entered into or consummated or, if consummated, describe the impact the transaction would have on us." In afternoon trading, shares of Caesars Entertainment are up 62c, or 7.94%, to $8.43.

16:22 EDTCZROn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street had a bit of a see-saw trading day, but ended the session in the red once again. The Nasdaq took the brunt of the losses, falling over 2%, while the Dow's slide erased its gains for the year. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the import price index fell 0.5% in September, versus expectations for a 0.7% decline. Oil slumped to a four-year low during the session, as brent crude touched $88.11 intra-day, its lowest level since December 2010. COMPANY NEWS: The semiconductor sector was weak across the board after one of the companies in the space, Microchip Technology (MCHP), warned that it believes the sector has entered a correction. Microchip President and CEO Steve Sanghi claimed his company often sees the turn of the semiconductor industry ahead of others, noting that it does business with over 80,000 customers and that it built a significant amount of inventory in the distribution channel in the September quarter. Sanghi stated, "We believe that another industry correction has begun and that this correction will be seen more broadly across the industry in the near future. Microchip, which also pre-announced weaker than expected second quarter revenue, dropped $5.58, or 12.26%, to $39.96. Intel (INTC) fell $1.71, or 5.09%, to $31.91, Avago (AVGO) declined $9.24, or 11.46%, to $71.36, Texas Instruments (TXN) slipped $3.28, or 7.13%, to $42.74 and Micron (MU) dropped $2.71, or 8.86%, to $27.93. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Exact Sciences (EXAS), which rallied $6.48, or 35.76%, to $24.60 after the company announced last night that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, or CMS, had agreed to cover the company's colorectal cancer and pre-cancer test through Medicare. Also higher was Dave & Buster (PLAY), which gained $1.28 to $17.28 after commencing trading on the Nasdaq following its initial public offering. Among the noteworthy losers was Procera Networks (PKT), which was downgraded by at least four research firms and plunged $2.85, or 33.33%, to $5.70 after the company warned its Q3 revenue will miss expectations. Also lower were shares of Caesars (CZR), which dropped $1.92, or 17.36%, to $9.14 after disclosing in a regulatory filing that its Chief Accounting Officer resigned to accept a position with another company.
