07:43 EDTUTXLockheed Martin to acquire Sikorsky Aircraft business for $9B
United Technologies (UTX) announced that it has reached an agreement to sell its Sikorsky Aircraft business to Lockheed Martin (LMT) for $9B in cash. The transaction, which is subject to regulatory approvals and customary closing conditions and adjustments, is projected to close by year-end or in the Q1 of FY16. Proceeds from the sale are expected to be used to fund additional share repurchase to offset the earnings impact related to the sale. The company will discuss this transaction at its previously scheduled conference call with investors. In addition, UTC's Board of Directors has authorized a share repurchase program for up to 75M shares of the company's common stock, which would be worth approximately $8.3B based on the NYSE closing price of UTC shares on July 17. The new authorization replaces a previous program, approved in February 2013, which was nearing completion. The precise timing and amount of repurchases will be determined based on the company's evaluation of market conditions and other factors, and the program may be suspended or discontinued at any time.

20:33 EDTUTXMedia reports say Lockheed to buy UTX's Sikorsky
According to media reports, Lockheed Martin (LMT) has agreed to purchase United Technologies' (UTX) Sikorsky unit. The news comes after several months of speculation surrounding Sikorsky, and an announcement could be made just a day prior to second quarter earnings for both United and Lockheed. WHAT'S NEW: Reuters reported on Sunday that Lockheed Martin has agreed to buy Sikorsky Aircraft from United Technologies for over $8B, according to two sources, adding that the deal is set to be formally announced on Monday. The news was later echoed by Bloomberg, citing a person familiar with the talks. WHAT'S NOTABLE: United Technologies first reported that it was exploring strategic options for its Sikorsky unit on March 11. At the time, the company noted that options included a spinoff or a stand-alone public company, saying that the split could allow United "to better focus on providing high-technology systems and services to the aerospace and building industries." Following the announcement, UBS remarked that it was "not surprised" and reiterated a $136 price target on United shares. On May 20, the Wall Street Journal quoted sources as saying Boeing (BA), Airbus (EADSY) and Lockheed submitted bids for the helicopter maker, with a speculated deal thought to reach the $10B area. A June 9 report from Reuters added Textron (TXT) to the list of bidders. Today's news -- though unconfirmed by either United or Lockheed -- comes ahead of second quarter earnings reports for both companies scheduled for Tuesday, July 21. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Lockheed Martin declined 0.22% to $201.18 at the close of trading on July 17, while those of United Technologies fell 0.45% to $110.76.
