10:35 EDTGNCVitamin Shoppe may consider selling itself, analyst says
Vitamin retailer Vitamin Shoppe (VSI) could be considering selling itself after its 52 year old CEO announced that he would retire, Sterne Agee wrote in a note to investors today. WHAT'S NEW: After Vitamin Shoppe announced on September 10 that its CEO Tony Truesdale would retire effective June 2015, Sterne Agee analyst Charles Grom wrote that the news was surprising, in light of Truesdale's age and several initiatives recently carried out by the company. Given Truesdale's departure and the lack of available high-caliber retail management talent, along with Vitamin Shoppe's recent move into manufacturing via its acquisition of nutritional product maker Nutri-Force, Vitamin Shoppe's board may be considering selling the company, the analyst believes. Vitamin Shoppe could be weighing selling itself to competitor GNC (GNC) or a private equity firm, Grom wrote. He kept a $53 price target and Buy rating on Vitamin Shoppe. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In a note to investors on August 11, Credit Suisse predicted that GNC and Vitamin Shoppe could combine. The merger would create $135M of synergies and grow the combined entity's earnings before interest taxes depreciation and amortization by nearly 20%, the analyst predicted. Additionally, the companies have a great deal of store overlap, and the new CEO of GNC is a former president of Vitamin Shoppe, increasing the chances that a merger would be successful, Credit Suisse stated. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Vitamin Shoppe lost 1% to $43, while GNC advanced 1% to $39.50.

06:52 EDTCBSOCBS Outdoor now sees Q3 revenue flat y/y
On September 10, Jeremy Male, CEO of CBS Outdoor Americas, will make the following statements at the Goldman Sachs 23rd Annual Communacopia Conference in New York, New York: ďAs we previously indicated, national advertising has improved slightly from second quarter levels, but the the overall market is not as strong as expected. As a result, we are updating our view of third quarter revenues, which we now expect to be close to flat year-over-year, down from the low-single-digit range we provided on our August earnings call. This continues to include the comparison issues associated with a contract non-renewal in April 2014 and the sale of our street furniture business in Los Angeles in November 2013. We are pleased to be able to accelerate the proposed closing of the acquisition of outdoor advertising assets from Van Wagner to the fourth quarter of this year, and are now working toward closing the acquisition as early as possible during the quarter. We are also pleased to inform you that this business is trending positively for the second half. Together with our previously announced acquisition of billboards in Chicago, we expect to close three additional tuck-in acquisitions by the end of this year. Together, these four acquisitions amount to a total purchase price of approximately $20M and they will complement our existing top-market U.S. portfolio."
