07:24 EDTSHLDSears board approves rights offering
Sears announced that the company’s board of directors has approved a rights offering allowing its stockholders to purchase up to $625M in aggregate principal amount of 8% senior unsecured notes due 2019 and warrants to purchase shares of its common stock. This rights offering will generate up to an additional $625M in proceeds, if it is fully subscribed and closes as planned, with the proceeds to be used for general corporate purposes. The subscription rights will be distributed to all stockholders of record of the company, and every stockholder will have the right to participate on the same terms in accordance with its pro rata ownership of the company’s common stock, except that holders of the company’s restricted stock that is unvested as of the record date are expected to receive cash awards in lieu of subscription rights. In the rights offering, the company anticipates that holders of its common stock, other than holders of restricted stock that is unvested, will receive subscription rights on a pro rata basis based on shares of common stock held at the close of business on October 30, the record date for the rights offering. Each subscription right will entitle the holder thereof to purchase, at a subscription price equal to the principal amount of each note, one unit, consisting of an 8% senior unsecured note due 2019 in a principal to be determined and a number of warrants equal to that principal amount divided by the strike price for the warrants, with each warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one share of the company’s common stock at a strike price of $28.41, the closing market price on October 17. The warrants will be exercisable for a period of five years following the offering. Upon the closing of the rights offering, the components of the units will immediately separate from one another such that the senior unsecured notes and warrants will constitute separate securities and will be transferable separately. The subscription rights will be transferable and are expected to be listed and traded on the NASDAQ. The senior unsecured notes will be transferable but will not be listed for trading on any exchange. The warrants will be transferable, and the company intends to apply to list the warrants for trading on the NASDAQ. Holders of subscription rights who fully exercise all of their subscription rights may also make a request to purchase additional units through the exercise of an over-subscription privilege, although we cannot assure investors that any over-subscriptions will be filled.

Shares of aircraft and defense company Textron (TXT) are advancing after the firm reported better than expected third quarter earnings per share and raised its profit outlook for fiscal 2014.

On the company's earnings conference call, management said it saw a pickup of orders in September and October in the new aircraft market.

Including today’s advance, the stock has gained approximately 36% over the past twelve months.
