12:12 EDTDD, SUNEDuPont files patent infringement lawsuit against SunEdison
DuPont (DD) filed a patent infringement lawsuit against SunEdison (SUNE) and its affiliate NVT LLC in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware. In its complaint, DuPont alleges that by sourcing and using photovoltaic cells and solar modules containing Samsung SDI Co., Ltd. front side metallization paste, SunEdison infringes DuPont's patented tellurium paste technology. The complaint also identifies Neo Solar Power of Taiwan as the cell manufacturer and Flextronics as SunEdison's contract manufacturer."DuPont will enforce its patent rights to protect our substantial investment in innovation to improve solar energy efficiency," said Peter Brenner, global photovoltaic business marketing manager, Microcircuit Materials, DuPont Electronics & Communications. "Installers and module makers like SunEdison are responsible for ensuring that their products do not use infringing cells or pastes. Our patented tellurium technology is available only from DuPont; no other photovoltaic paste manufacturer has a license to use our patented technology."

11:16 EDTSUNESunEdison surges after acquiring wind energy company
Shares of SunEdison (SUNE) are jumping after the company announced that it had acquired First Wind, which develops products used to generate energy from wind. A number of analysts were enthusiastic about the acquisition by SunEdison, which develops silicon wafers for solar energy as well as semiconductor components. WHAT'S NEW: SunEdison announced last night that it, along with its subsidiary TerraForm Power (TERP), had bought First Wind for up to $2.4B, consisting of $1.9B upfront and $510M in incentives. Of the total $2.4B, SunEdison will pay $1.5B and TerraForm will pay $862M. TerraForm will acquire First Wind's operating portfolio. As a result of the deal, TeraPower's cash available for distribution will increase by $72.5M in 2015, and the subsidiary increased its 2015 dividend guidance to $1.30 per share. SunEdison increased its 2015 project installation guidance to 2.1 GW-2.3GW from 1.6-1.8 GW. SunEdison added that the deal, expected to close next quarter, will enable it to receive incentive distribution rights from TerraForm Power sooner. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors today, Brean Capital analyst Michael Gaugler wrote that the acquisition is "transformative" for SunEdison. The deal will improve SunEdison's risk profile compared with its solar energy peers by increasing the geographic diversity of TerraForm's holdings, Gaugler believes. As a result, TerraForm's shares should rise, the analyst forecast. Gaugler added that he was unsure about whether the deal will prove to be a positive turning point for SunEdison;s stock, although he thinks that the transaction will convince investors of the company's ability to create value. He kept a $23 price target and Buy rating on the shares. UBS analyst Stephen Chin wrote that the deal is a "potential game changer" for SunEdison, as enables the company to diversify its products by entering the wind energy space. Chin kept a $30 price target and Buy rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, SunEdison surged 25% to $20.75 and TerraForm jumped 28% to $33.

17:34 EDTSUNESunEdison, TerraForm Power to acquire First Wind for $2.4B
SunEdison (SUNE) and TerraForm Power (TERP) announced that they have signed a definitive agreement to acquire First Wind, one of the leading developers, owners and operators of wind projects in the U.S. With the purchase, SunEdison acquires the leading independent wind development and asset management company and becomes the leading global renewable energy development company. As a result, SunEdison raises its 2015 project installation guidance from 1.6-1.8 GW to 2.1-2.3 GW. SunEdison shareholders are expected to benefit from increased project development cash flow, asset management revenues, and dividend payments from TerraForm Power. The transaction also will accelerate the timing and enhance the visibility of SunEdison's receipt of incentive distribution rights from TerraForm Power, and increase the value of SunEdison's yieldco platform. The transaction is immediately accretive to TerraForm Power and is expected to deliver $72.5M in unlevered cash available for distribution in 2015. Pro forma for the transaction, TerraForm Power raises its 2015 CAFD guidance to $214M and 2015 dividend guidance to $1.30 per share, a 44% increase over its current $0.90 dividend rate. SunEdison will purchase over 1.6 GW of pipeline and backlog projects, which have been added to TerraForm Power's call right project list and are expected to be operational in 2016-2017. Included in the transaction is an additional 6.4 GW of project development opportunities. SunEdison expects to accelerate the rate of project development and realize significant synergies and growth opportunities by integrating First Wind's wind platform into its own global project development and finance platform. TerraForm Power acquires 521 MW of contracted wind generation assets from First Wind and adds 1.6 GW to its list of call right projects scheduled for drop down in 2016-2017. The acquisition increases the generation capacity of TerraForm Power's operating portfolio by more than 50% and provides further geographic diversity in Maine, New York, Hawaii, Vermont and Massachusetts. In addition, subsequent to the acquisition, TerraForm Power's call right project list with SunEdison will double to 3.2 GW of solar and wind projects.
