11:48 EDTAVPPTG Capital recommends tender offer for Avon at $18.75 per share
PTG Capital Partners announced via a filing with the SEC that it has submitted an offer to the board of Avon Products proposing to acquire all of the company's outstanding stock, and outstanding options to acquire such shares, in a recommended cash tender offer at a price per share of $18.75. The offer is subject to "satisfactory completion of due diligence, the redemption or termination of the rights plan, or 'poison pill', if any, and negotiation and execution of a definitive written agreement." PTG said it has "substantial experience in managing acquisitions and is committed to working quickly to complete due diligence and execute a definitive agreement." PTG Partners expects to be able to complete such an agreement within 10 days from the beginning of the due diligence period. PTG cautioned that the offer "does not create any binding obligation, and no such binding obligation will arise unless and until a mutually satisfactory definitive agreement has been executed and delivered by the parties." It added that it believes a combination of the company and PTG would result in "substantial benefits" to shareholder bases. After being halted for volatility, Avon shares are up $1.31 to $7.98. The stock halted again after the quick rise.

08:40 EDTSTEMStemCells announces positive top-line results of HuCNS-SC Phase I/II study
StemCells announced that Dr. Armin Curt, principal investigator, will present a summary of the safety and preliminary efficacy data from the Phase I/II study investigating Human Central Nervous System Stem Cell, or HuCNS-SC, intramedullary transplantation in thoracic spinal cord injury. The summary will be presented today at 10:15 a.m. EDT at the 4th Joint International Spinal Cord Society, or ISCoS, and American Spinal Injury Association, or ASIA, meeting being held in Montreal, Canada. The abstract was selected as one of the top six platform submissions for the conference. The international, open-label, Phase I/II trial evaluated both safety and preliminary efficacy of StemCells, Inc.'s proprietary HuCNS-SC human neural stem cells as a treatment for chronic spinal cord injury. The trial enrolled twelve patients who had suffered injury to the thoracic cord and were in the early chronic stage of recovery. The severity of spinal cord trauma is classified by the ASIA Impairment Scale, or AIS, according to the degree of sensory and motor loss. Patients classified as AIS A, the most severe injury, have lost both sensory and motor function below the level of injury. AIS B patients are considered less severely injured because, although they also have no motor function below the level of injury, some limited sensory function is maintained. The protocol was specifically designed to test safety and preliminary efficacy across this spectrum of injury severity, and ultimately the trial transplanted seven AIS A and five AIS B patients.

Coca-Cola Bottling (COKE) announced that it has signed a non-binding letter of intent with The Coca-Cola Company (KO) to further expand the company's franchise territory.

The transactions proposed in the letter of intent are subject to the parties reaching a definitive agreement, with territory expansion closings expected to begin in the fall of 2015.
