10:34 EDTSCHLAnalyst predicts consolidation in educational products space
The shares of Scholastic (SCHL) are climbing after Citigroup wrote that the company will probably be acquired by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMHC). Scholastic develops educational products for children, including books and technology products. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt publishes textbooks used in K-12 schools around the world. WHAT'S NEW: Houghton Mifflin is "very likely" to buy Scholastic, Citi analyst Jason Bazinet wrote in a note to investors earlier today. The assets of Scholastic "fit naturally" with those of Houghton Mifflin, since both companies publish materials for K-12 students, the analyst stated. Houghton Mifflin's reluctance to return capital to shareholders, along with a lack of suitable targets in the K-12 space, further convince Bazinet that the deal will probably take place, the analyst stated. The acquisition would increase the value of Houghton Mifflin's stock to $30, wrote Bazinet, who increased his price target on the shares to $29 from $23. He kept a Buy rating on the stock. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Scholastic rose 1.3% to $40, while Houghton Mifflin advanced 1.5% to $24.

06:35 EDTBXGE releases financial details of GE Capital assets sale
Approximately $16B of after-tax charges are expected to be recorded in the first quarter of 2015 in connection with the plan of which about $12B are non-cash. The charges include taxes on repatriated earnings, asset impairments due to shortened hold periods, and charges on businesses held for sale, including goodwill allocation. GE expects that the earnings impact of the GE Capital exits will be offset by the buyback over the exit period. GE has amended its income maintenance agreement to guarantee all tradable senior and subordinated debt securities and all commercial paper issued or guaranteed by GECC. The guarantee will replace the current income maintenance covenant. GE will maintain substantial liquidity and capital through the transition and does not expect to issue incremental GE Capital long-term debt for at least five years. Commercial paper will be further reduced to approximately $5 billion by the end of 2015.
