09:27 EDTRHHBY, GE, LIFE, TMOLife 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.

The European Commission has opened an in-depth investigation to assess whether General Electric's (GE) proposed acquisition of the Thermal Power, Renewable Power & Grid businesses of Alstom (ALSMY) is in line with the EU Merger Regulation. The Commissionís preliminary investigation indicates potential competition concerns in the market for heavy-duty gas turbines which are mainly used in gas-fired power plants. The transaction would bring together the activities of GE, the world's largest manufacturer of heavy-duty gas turbines, with those of Alstom, eliminating one of the three main global competitors to GE in this market. The opening of an in-depth inquiry does not prejudge the final result of the investigation. The Commission now has 90 working days, until 8 July, to take a final decision. Reference Link
