09:52 EDTMDTCovidien rises after Medtronic maintains merger date language
Shares of Covidien (COV) are rising in early trading after Medtronic (MDT), in its latest regulatory filing answering questions for shareholders regarding its proposed takeover of the Irish drugmaker, left its language regarding the expected closing date unchanged. WHAT'S NEW: In its most recent filing, Medtronic again stated, "As of the date of this joint proxy statement/prospectus, the transaction is expected to be completed late in the fourth calendar quarter of 2014 or early 2015. However, no assurance can be provided as to when or if the transaction will be completed. The required vote of Medtronic and Covidien shareholders to adopt the required shareholder proposals at their respective special meetings, as well as the necessary regulatory consents and approvals, must first be obtained and other conditions specified in the conditions appendix must be satisfied or, to the extent applicable, waived." ANALYST REACTION: Research firm BTIG says Medtronic's amended regulatory filing on the Covidien transaction increases the firm's confidence of the deal closing by early 2015. The firm adds it would be "stunned" to see Medtronic walk away from the merger after the company again showed commitment to the acquisition. WHAT'S NOTABLE: AbbVie (ABBV) last night confirmed that the company and Shire (SHPG), another Irish domiciled drugmaker, agreed to terminate their proposed merger. AbbVie said its decision was based upon its assessment of the September 22 notice issued by the U.S. Department of Treasury, which re-interpreted longstanding tax principles in a "uniquely selective manner designed specifically to destroy the financial benefits of these types of transactions." AbbVie continued that the Treasury notice "introduced an unacceptable level of risk and uncertainty given the magnitude of the proposed changes" and the stated intention of the department to continue to revise tax principles to further impact such "tax inversion" transactions. AbbVie noted that it has agreed to pay Shire a break fee of approximately $1.64B due to the deal falling through. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, shares of Covidien trading in New York rose 4% to $88.86, Medtronic advanced 1% to $64.57, Shires gained 0.7% to $185.82 and AbbVie added 1.4% to $55.16.

09:11 EDTMDTMedtronic keeps language unchanged on merger closing date
Medtronic in its latest regulatory filing answering questions for shareholders regarding its proposed takeover of Covidien (COV) left the language unchanged around the expected closing date. The company again stated, "As of the date of this joint proxy statement/prospectus, the transaction is expected to be completed late in the fourth calendar quarter of 2014 or early 2015. However, no assurance can be provided as to when or if the transaction will be completed. The required vote of Medtronic and Covidien shareholders to adopt the required shareholder proposals at their respective special meetings, as well as the necessary regulatory consents and approvals, must first be obtained and other conditions specified in the conditions appendix must be satisfied or, to the extent applicable, waived."
