07:31 EDTTSNHillshire Brands reports Q4 adjusted EPS 33c, consensus 26c
Reports Q4 revenue $1.1B, consensus $994.1M. As previously announced, on July 1, Hillshire Brands entered into a definitive agreement with Tyson Foods (TSN) under which Tyson will acquire all outstanding shares of Hillshire Brands for $63 per share. On August 12, 2014, each of Tyson and Hillshire Brands received a request for additional information, each often referred to as a “second request,” from the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice in connection with the proposed acquisition. Each second request was issued pursuant to the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended. The second requests relate only to a very small portion of the combined Tyson/Hillshire Brands business, and the parties are working expeditiously to resolve this matter with the Antitrust Division. Tyson and Hillshire Brands continue to expect that the transaction, which remains subject to customary closing conditions, will be completed by September 27.
07:04 EDTDEDeere sees FY14 earnings to be somewhat lower than in 2013, EPS consensus $8.40
Sees FY14 equipment sales to decrease 6% and to be down 8% in Q4 compared with year ago periods. Deere's worldwide sales of agriculture and turf equipment are forecast to decrease by about 10% for fiscal-year 2014. Although the agricultural economy remains in a relatively healthy state, falling commodity prices are contributing to a reduction in farm income. The decline is putting pressure on demand for farm equipment, especially larger models. At the same time, strength in the U.S. livestock sector is providing support to sales of mid- and smaller-size tractors. Based on these factors, industry sales for agricultural machinery in the U.S. and Canada are forecast to be down about 10% for the year. Deere's worldwide sales of construction and forestry equipment are forecast to increase by about 10 percent for full-year 2014. The gain reflects further economic recovery and higher housing starts in the U.S. as well as sales increases outside the U.S. and Canada. Global forestry sales are expected to be up for the year due to general economic growth and improved sales in European markets. Fiscal-year 2014 net income attributable to Deere & Company for the financial services operations is expected to be approximately $600 million. The outlook reflects improvement over last year due primarily to expected growth in the credit portfolio and a more favorable tax rate.
