09:27 EDTTMO, RHHBY, GE, LIFELife Technologies potential buyers could have better options, says Piper Jaffray
After Life Technologies (LIFE) said it hired two investment banks to aid in its annual strategic review, Piper Jaffray said it believes a takeover or leveraged buyout is potentially in the works. Piper said it sees several potential acquirers for Life, listing Roche (RHHBY), Thermo Fisher (TMO) and General Electric (GE) as possibly making strategic sense. However, Piper says the slower growing Research Consumables business makes up 43% of Life's revenue. As such, it believes an acquirer interested in the faster growing next-gen sequencing business has better options. Piper has a Neutral rating on shares of Life Technologies.

Seeking to improve and sustain its manufacturing capabilities to meet the growing demand for oil and gas production and power transmission equipment, GE Oil & Gas announced it plans to invest $60M in expanding and modernizing its foundry operations in Lufkin, Texas. The Lufkin foundry produces industry-leading iron castings used to make renowned Lufkin beam pumping units and Lufkin power transmission equipment. GE plans to demolish 30,000 square feet of its existing 515,000-square-foot facility and construct 72,000 square feet of new buildings. The company also plans to refurbish the remaining facilities at the site in Angelina County. The facility upgrades will create a simplified production process flow, improve employee working conditions and provide GEs customers with improved quality and delivery schedules. Design work for the project is expected to begin in 2014. As currently proposed and pending government approvals and permits, construction would be carried out in four phases commencing in 2016. Under that schedule, construction is expected to be completed in about three years. The foundry manufactures gray and ductile iron castings, producing an estimated 72,000 tons of products each year.
