14:08 EDTDOWDow Chemical to sell ANGUS Chemical to Golden Gate Capital for $1.215B
Dow Chemical announced that it has signed a definitive agreement under which ANGUS Chemical Company will be sold to Golden Gate Capital for $1.215B. The transaction is expected to close during the first quarter of 2015, subject to completion of customary regulatory filings. Dow had previously announced its intent to divest this business on Oct. 2. The divestiture aligns to Dow’s efforts to achieve its identified target of $4.5B-$6B in proceeds from shedding non-strategic assets and businesses by year-end 2015. To date, Dow has achieved $2.5B in proceeds designed to remunerate shareholders, reduce debt, and fund growth. The divestiture of ANGUS includes the business headquarters and R&D facility in Buffalo Grove, IL; manufacturing facilities located in Sterlington, LA, and Ibbenbueren, Germany; a packaging facility in Niagara Falls, NY; as well as the associated business, inventory, customer contracts, process technology, business know-how and certain intellectual property. Approximately 290 employee positions globally are expected to transition employment status as ANGUS moves to being owned by Golden Gate Capital as part of the transaction. Under terms of the purchase agreement, ANGUS will continue to honor customer, licensing and supplier contracts and related agreements.

17:00 EDTADMMarket ends week higher after upbeat U.S. data, hint at ECB easing
Stocks finished the week higher and near record levels as several better than expected U.S. economic data points boosted shares. MACRO NEWS: In the U.S., weekly jobless claims, a manufacturing index for October, and factory orders for September all beat expectations. The nonfarm payrolls report showed fewer than expected jobs were added last month, but the figures from the prior two months were upwardly revised... European Central Bank President Mario Draghi said the ECB Governing Council was unanimous in its commitment to use unconventional instruments if needed to boost the euro zone's economy. Meanwhile, some possible "green shoots" emerged in Europe, as France reported that its manufacturing output had risen 0.6% in September versus August. Furthermore, Western European car sales surged 5.5% in October versus the same period a year earlier, Reuters reported, citing industry data. There was, however, some negative news out of Europe, as Germany said that its factory orders had increased just 0.8% in September, following a revised 4.2% slump in August. Economists had expected the orders to jump 2.3%. Also, the European Commission cut its 2014 GDP growth forecast for the EU to 0.8% from its previous forecast for a 1.2% gain. COMPANY NEWS: Tesla (TSLA), Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba (BABA), Archer Daniels Midland (ADM), International Paper (IP), Whole Foods (WFM), and upscale accessories and apparel maker Kate Spade (KATE) were among the stocks that climbed following their results. Conversely, multi-level marketer Herbalife (HLF), Priceline (PCLN), Michael Kors (KORS), IT security company FireEye (FEYE), and chip maker Qualcomm (QCOM) fell following their quarterly reports... In takeover news, clinical laboratory company LabCorp (LH) said it would buy drug development services company Covance (CVD) for $105.12 per share in cash and stock, and marketing services company Sapient (SAPE) agreed to be acquired by French advertising giant Publicis (PUBGY) for $25.00 per share in cash... Shares of a number of hospital owners, including Tenet Healthcare (THC), Community Health (CYH), and HCA Holdings (HCA) fell after Republicans won control of the U.S. Senate. Republicans have promised to seek to repeal most parts of the Affordable Care Act, which benefits hospitals by reducing the number of uninsured patients that use their services. Additionally, the Supreme Court today agreed to hear a lawsuit challenging the federal government's right to subsidize the health insurance premiums of Americans who buy health insurance through the federal exchange set up by the Act... The Justice Department sued to block the acquisition of Screenvision, which provides solutions related to cinema advertising, by movie theater ad network National CineMedia (NCMI), sending its stock lower. Movie theater operator Carmike Cinemas (CKEC), which owns a 19% “profits interest" in the holding company for Screenvision, also slid following the news. INDEXES: For the week, the Dow is up 1.04% to 17,573.93, the Nasdaq is up 0.03% to 4,632.53, and the S&P 500 is up 0.66% to 2,031.92.
