06:43 EDTBXFTC issues subpoenas regarding Sysco, US Foods merger, NY Post says
Indicating further delays and possible cancellation of the deal, regulators from the Federal Trade Commission sent subpoenas to a third-party food distributor this week regarding Sysco's (SYY) $8.2B merger with US Foods, reports the New York Post, citing a source with direct knowledge of the situation. The source said it is "shockingly unclear" whether the FTC is gathering information in order to approve the deal or to block it. Blackstone's (BX) Performance Food Group, which earlier agreed to buy $5B of Sysco assets to make Sysco's merger more palatable to regulators, did not receive a subpoena. Reference Link

06:42 EDTRBSECB most likely will unveil bond buying program, NY Times says
The European Central Bank is "all but certain" to announce at its next meeting that it will buy government bonds, according to The New York Times. But the ECB may announce that it will buy bonds but say that it will only provide details about the program in March, some believe, the newspaper reported. Some economists contend that the initiative could be a case of "too little, too late," The Times added. Publicly traded European banks include Banco Santander (SAN), Barclays (BCS), Credit Suisse (CS), Deutsche Bank (DB), HSBC (HSBC), ING Groep (ING), Lloyds Banking (LYG), RBS (RBS) and UBS (UBS).
