06:05 EDTTWCCharter to merge with Time Warner Cable, acquire Bright House Networks
Charter Communications (CHTR) and Time Warner Cable (TWC) announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement for Charter to merge with Time Warner Cable. The deal values Time Warner Cable at $78.7B. Charter will provide $100.00 in cash and shares of a new public parent company equivalent to 0.5409 shares of CHTR for each Time Warner Cable share outstanding. The deal values each Time Warner Cable share at approximately $195.71 based on Charter's market closing price on May 20, or approximately $200 based on Charter's 60-trading day volume weighted average price. In addition, Charter will provide an election option for each Time Warner Cable stockholder, other than Liberty Broadband (LBRDA) or Liberty Interactive (QVCA), who will receive all stock, to receive $115.00 of cash and New Charter shares equivalent to 0.4562 shares of CHTR for each Time Warner Cable share they own. In addition, Charter and Advance/Newhouse Partnership announced that the two companies have amended the agreement which the two parties signed and announced on March 31, whereby Charter will acquire Bright House Networks for $10.4B. That agreement, as amended, provides for Charter and Advance/Newhouse to form a new partnership of which New Charter will own between approximately 86% and 87% and of which Advance/Newhouse will own between approximately 13%-14%, depending on the Time Warner Cable shareholders' cash election option described above. The consideration to be paid to Advance/Newhouse by Charter will include common and convertible preferred units in the Partnership, in addition to $2B in cash. The common and convertible preferred partnership units will each be exchangeable into shares of New Charter. The Charter-Advance/Newhouse transaction is expected to close contemporaneously with the Charter-Time Warner Cable transaction. Charter also announced today that Liberty Broadband has agreed to purchase, upon closing of the Time Warner Cable transaction, $4.3B of newly issued shares of New Charter at a price equivalent to $176.95 per Charter share, which represents Charter's closing price as of May 20. As previously-announced, Liberty Broadband will also purchase, upon closing of the Charter-Advance/Newhouse transaction, $700M of newly issued Charter shares at a price equivalent to $173.00 per Charter share.

07:48 EDTTWCAltice could have latitude for TWC deal near $200 per share, says Wunderlich
After The Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg said that Time Warner Cable has received a preliminary approach from Europe's Altice, Wunderlich estimated that TWC is worth $180 on an organic-only basis but that Altice could have latitude for a nominal deal price near $200 per share given the high value of Altice's equity. Applying the same multiple as what Altice just paid for Suddenlink to a deal for TWC yields a $230 takeout price, though this would be a "big reach," the firm added. Wunderlich has a Buy rating and $180 price target on Time Warner Cable shares.

08:04 EDTDUKDuke Energy to retire Asheville coal-fired power plant in four to five years
Duke Energy announced plans to retire its Asheville, N.C., coal-fired power plant in four to five years and modernize its generation and transmission system in western North Carolina and upstate South Carolina. The plan's major components include retiring the 376-megawatt Asheville coal power plant, investing approximately $750M to build a 650-megawatt natural gas-fired power plant, and installing solar generation at the site – one of the first combinations of its kind. The plan includes investing approximately $320M to build a transmission substation near Campobello, S.C., and connect it to the Asheville power plant with a new approximately 40-mile, 230-kiloVolt transmission line. It also includes upgrading and rebuilding additional electrical infrastructure such as transmission lines and distribution substations. Carbon dioxide emissions will be reduced by about 60 percent, on a per-megawatt hour basis, due to the efficiency of the new gas plant and the fact that natural gas burns more cleanly than coal. The new gas plant also will help reduce carbon dioxide emissions across Duke Energy's Carolinas power plant fleet. Closing the Asheville coal plant and building a gas plant will make it unnecessary to invest in 126 megawatts of oil-fired generation units, to meet peak demand, and other capital investments that were planned for 2019. The power plant and electric transmission projects will create a peak construction workforce of about 800 jobs in the 2017-2019 timeframe, and generate significant local property tax revenues when brought in-service. Based on current Buncombe County tax rates, property taxes from the gas power plant are estimated to increase between 35 and 40 percent after the site is modernized.
07:36 EDTTWCAutomakers to start V2V car rollouts with spectrum at a premium, WSJ says
General Motors' (GM) upcoming Cadillac CTS is the only car firmly scheduled to launch in the U.S. with vehicle-to-vehicle communications, or V2V, but the industry has promised that V2V will revolutionize safety and Cisco (CSCO) joined automakers earlier this month to brief the FCC on plans to test airwave sharing soon, said The Wall Street Journal. However, cable and telecom companies are pressuring carmakers to give up a part of the airwaves marked for V2V to be available for broader use, the report added. Publicly traded automakers include Fiat Chrysler (FCAU), Ford (F), Honda (HMC), Toyota (TM) and Volkswagen (VLKAY), while cable and telecom companies include Verizon (VZ), AT&T (T), Sprint (S), T-Mobile (TMUS), Comcast (CMCSA), Time Warner Cable (TWC) and Charter (CHTR).
