12:07 EDTGEEU opens probe in GE's proposed acquisition of Alstom's energy business
The European Commission has opened an in-depth investigation to assess whether General Electric's (GE) proposed acquisition of the Thermal Power, Renewable Power & Grid businesses of Alstom (ALSMY) is in line with the EU Merger Regulation. The Commissionís preliminary investigation indicates potential competition concerns in the market for heavy-duty gas turbines which are mainly used in gas-fired power plants. The transaction would bring together the activities of GE, the world's largest manufacturer of heavy-duty gas turbines, with those of Alstom, eliminating one of the three main global competitors to GE in this market. The opening of an in-depth inquiry does not prejudge the final result of the investigation. The Commission now has 90 working days, until 8 July, to take a final decision. Reference Link
09:04 EDTKMBKimberly Clark signs agreements to purchase pension annuity contracts
Kimberly-Clark announced it has entered into purchase agreements with The Prudential Insurance Company of America and Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company for group annuity contracts that will transfer payment responsibility for retirement pension benefits owed to approximately 21,000 Kimberly-Clark retirees in the U.S. to the two insurers. By transferring the obligations to Prudential and MassMutual, Kimberly-Clark will reduce its pension projected benefit obligation by approximately $2.5B. Kimberly-Clark expects to make a $400M to $475M contribution to its U.S. pension plan to support this transaction. This contribution will be funded by debt financing and is incremental to the company's previous assumption for 2015 global defined benefit pension plan contributions of up to $100M. As a result of the annuity purchases, Kimberly-Clark expects to recognize a non-cash pension settlement charge of $0.8 billion after tax ($1.3 billion before-tax) in the second quarter of 2015. This charge will be excluded from the company's 2015 adjusted results.
