09:04 EDTAYIAcuity Brands builds engineering facility in Decatur, GA
Acuity Brands announced it will build an engineering and technology center at a site it owns in Decatur, Georgia, and will invest in facility upgrades at its complex in Conyers Georgia, as part of a plan to enhance a workplace that will drive innovation and technology advances. In the Decatur project, the Company will retrofit an existing 167,000 square-foot building to become its new Engineering and Technology Center. The building, located at One Lithonia Way, will undergo a total transformation that will incorporate leading workplace design, technology and systems into the new facility. The goal is to continue to provide and accelerate an open work environment that enhances collaboration, sparks innovation, and helps associates bring new technologies even more quickly to market. The $11 million project will begin immediately, with completion scheduled for mid-2015. Acuity Brands will relocate approximately 200 software and electrical engineers, technologists and support staff to the new Decatur facility from its Conyers location once construction is completed. In Conyers, beginning later this year and over the next several years, Acuity Brands will make significant investments in redesigning and retrofitting the four main buildings on its campus to include open workspace design, new infrastructure and enabling technologies, as well as new furnishings.

08:08 EDTMONMonsanto sees Q1 earnings roughly half last year, FY15 growth concentrated in Q3
Monsanto said, "As its business has expanded globally over the past several years, the company has seen its earnings flow evolve between quarters. This trend continues in FY15 as the company anticipates an overall shift in its full-year earnings pattern, as several structural factors result in a full-year earnings flow with a smaller first quarter and a concentration of growth in the third quarter. With macro conditions resulting in lower planted acres for key regions in both corn and cotton in the quarter, combined with a timing shift as the company moves more of its Agricultural Productivity business to branded-product sales, Monsanto expects its first quarter will be roughly half of the total earnings from the first quarter of 2014. Beyond the first quarter, the biggest first half timing effect relates to the evolution in its Channel seed brand business model that is expected to shift business timing from the first and second quarters to the third quarter. The company expects second quarter earnings to be relatively flat year-over-year with a significant uptick in third quarter earnings reflecting the timing shifts and business growth in its largest markets. The earnings flow is punctuated by a fourth quarter that is expected to be break-even to positive year-over-year on an absolute basis."
08:06 EDTMONMonsanto reports Q4 Seeds and Genomics sales $1.376B
Reports Q4 Agricultural Productivity sales $1.254B. Hugh Grant, chairman and CEO for Monsanto, said, “In an industry that’s particularly near-term focused right now, there are few companies as well positioned to deliver strong growth today while significantly increasing investments to enable the continued delivery of a broad range of innovative solutions for tomorrow.”
