06:20 EDTALLMarchex cuts 2014 call-driven revenue outlook due to revised Allstate commitment
Allstate (ALL) has indicated its desire to move to a fixed fee model going forward. Under this proposed model, Marchex’s (MCHX) economic upside would have been limited, while financial exposure to Marchex would have remained. Marchex does not believe it is in its best long-term interest to work under such an arrangement. Marchex will continue to work with Allstate as an integration partner utilizing its call analytics technology. Marchex expects this will be a relatively small financial contributor. Marchex CEO Russell Horowitz said, "“This outcome is disappointing, as we believe that a performance-based model is the way most companies are progressing. This is the trend we are seeing with our customer base... Beyond Allstate, we continue to experience growth in our customer base for call-driven advertising products and believe we are early in the customer adoption phase of mobile and call-driven advertising."

05:31 EDTVVisa to undertake assessment of stake in Monitise
Visa (V) and Monitise entered into an alliance agreement in 2009. At the same time, Visa began investing in Monitise. Given the maturation of Monitise as a company, Visa is considering its options with respect to the investment and has engaged J.P. Morgan Securities (JPM) to assist. Visa will also be lessening its dependence on external mobile development resources. In 2009, in conjunction with its commercial partnership, Visa invested in Monitise as a 14.4% owner of the company in order to provide capital support to a leader in the evolution of the mobile payments sector. Over time, Visa’s holdings have been reduced to its current 5.5% stake in the company. This reduction in ownership and associated influence is consistent with Visa’s investment practice to seed emerging players and, over time, taper that influence as the partner company grows. Under their agreement, Monitise will provide Visa with mobile platform development services through 2016. As both Visa and the payments industry evolve at a rapid pace, Visa intends to continue increasing its investment in its own in-house capabilities and, as a result, reducing its use of external resources.

17:48 EDTGOOGNews Corp opposed Google EC settlement offer
Early last week, in a letter to European Commissioner for Competition Joaquín Almunia, News Corp (NWS, NWSA) CEO Robert Thomson opposed Google’s (GOOG) settlement offer with the European Commission, or EC, saying the internet giant is “willing to exploit its dominant market position to stifle competition.” Thomson said News Corp also opposed the proposed five year term of a settlement, noting that “five years is an eternity in internet time.” Citing Google’s “egregious aggregation” of content, Mr. Thomson said that, along with serious commercial damage, there is a “profound social cost” to Google’s actions. “The internet should be a canvas for freedom of expression and for high quality content of enduring value. Undermining the basic business model of professional content creators will lead to a less informed, more vexatious level of dialogue in our society.” "Your decision to reconsider Google's settlement offer comes at a crucial moment in the history of the free flow of information and of a healthy media in Europe and beyond," Mr. Thomson wrote.
