Sangamo BioSciences (SGMO) plans to submit an Investigational New Drug application for the treatment of hemophilia B in Q2 2015.

06:19 EDTFDODollar General commences tender offer to acquire Family Dollar for $80/share
Dollar General (DG) announced that it has commenced a tender offer to acquire all outstanding shares of Family Dollar Stores (FDO) for $80.00 per share in cash. The offer is scheduled to expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 8, 2014, unless the offer is extended. The full terms, conditions and other details of the tender offer are set forth in the offering documents that Dollar General will file today with the SEC. Dollar General also will promptly file for clearance under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act, which will allow the company to begin the antitrust approval process with the FTC. Dollar Generalís all-cash offer of $80.00 per share provides Family Dollar shareholders with a "superior valuation" to the $74.50 per share cash / stock offer announced by Dollar Tree (DLTR) on July 28, 2014. Dollar Generalís offer provides Family Dollarís shareholders with approximately $640M of additional aggregate value over Dollar Treeís offer. As part of a definitive merger agreement with Family Dollar, Dollar General would be willing to agree to divest up to 1,500 stores if required by the FTC and to pay Family Dollar a $500M reverse break-up fee if the transaction did not close for reasons related to antitrust approvals.

12:40 EDTABBVFTC sues AbbVie over blocking of AndroGel generics
The Federal Trade Commission has filed a complaint in federal district court charging several pharmaceutical companies with "illegally blocking American consumersí access to lower-cost versions of the blockbuster drug AndroGel." The FTC's complaint alleges that AbbVie (ABBV) and its partner Besins Healthcare filed baseless patent infringement lawsuits against potential generic competitors to delay the introduction of lower-priced versions of the testosterone replacement drug AndroGel. While the lawsuits were pending, AbbVie then entered into an anticompetitive pay-for-delay settlement agreement with Teva Pharmaceuticals (TEVA) to further delay generic drug competition, the FTC claims.
