16:20 EDTPLUGOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower after the U.S. took new action to clamp down on tax inversion deals and led airstrikes against Islamic State militants in Syria, while Europe reported weaker than expected manufacturing data. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the FHFA's home price index rose 0.1% in July to 212.7, missing expectations for an increase of 0.5%. Markit's preliminary manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index for September came in at 57.9, slightly below the consensus forecast for a 58.0 reading. In China, HSBC's flash manufacturing PMI rose to 50.5 from a final reading of 50.2 in August, better than expectations. In Europe, Markit's composite flash PMI for the eurozone dipped to a nine-month low of 52.3, missing expectations for it to hold steady with its 52.5 reading for August. COMPANY NEWS: The shares of a number of companies that have announced or been speculated as targets in tax inversion deals fell after the U.S. Treasury last night issued new regulations that will make such deals less attractive. AstraZeneca (AZN), which has previously turned down an offer to be acquired by the U.S.'s Pfizer (PFE), sank $3.54, or 4.74%, to $71.13 despite a Bloomberg report that said Pfizer is still considering pursuing a deal with the U.K. drugmaker. AbbVie (ABBV), which has a deal in progress to acquire Shire (SHPG) and thus move its tax domicile to Ireland, fell $1.15, or 1.96%, to $57.56, while Shire shares slid $5.56, or 2.17%, to $250.74. Medtronic (MDT), which is pursuing its own inversion deal with Covidien (COV), dropped $1.90, or 2.88%, to $64.08. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Herbalife (HLF), which rose $3.88, or 9.65%, to $44.09, bouncing back from a pullback yesterday that had been attributed to rumors of Carl Icahn selling out of his stake in the company. Also higher was Plug Power (PLUG), which rose 40c, or 9.57%, to $4.58 after the company's CEO gave FY15 revenue guidance that was above the consensus Street view in an interview with the Albany Business Review. Among the noteworthy losers was Ascena Retail (ASNA), which dropped $2.78, or 16.82%, to $13.75 after the apparel retailer's fourth quarter results and fiscal 2015 profit outlook trailed analysts' consensus estimates. Also lower were shares of used car retailer CarMax (KMX), which fell $5.01, or 9.49%, to $47.80 after the company reported sluggish comparable used car sales in its second quarter. INDEXES: The Dow declined 116.81, or 0.68%, to 17,055.87, the Nasdaq dropped 19.00, or 0.42%, to 4,508.69, and the S&P 500 fell 11.52, or 0.58%, to 1,982.77.
14:26 EDTPLUGPlug Power CEO sees FY15 revenue of $130M, Albany Biz Review says
Plug Power CEO Andy Marsh sees its new agreement with M&T Bank to offer financing packages for its GenKey systems to allow customers to decide more quickly on purchases, which will help the company accelerate its revenue, reported Albany Business Review, citing an interview with Marsh. Marsh said the new financing will help Plug generate more than $75M in revenue this year and that the company is "on track to do $130M in revenue in 2015," the report added. Consensus estimates for Plug Power's revenue in FY14 and FY15 are $75.93M and $126.37M, respectively. Reference Link

08:28 EDTFDOFamily Dollar board rejects Dollar General's 'illusory' tender offer
Family Dollar Stores (FDO) announced that its Board of Directors unanimously recommends that Family Dollar’s shareholders reject the unsolicited conditional tender offer made by Dollar General Corporation (DG) and not tender their shares. In conjunction with its rejection of Dollar General’s offer, Family Dollar’s Board unanimously reaffirms its recommendation in support of the transaction with Dollar Tree (DLTR). The terms of the tender offer are the same as those in the proposal made by Dollar General on September 2, 2014, which the Board of Directors of Family Dollar unanimously rejected on September 5, 2014, on the basis of antitrust regulatory considerations. Howard R. Levine, Chairman and CEO of Family Dollar, said, “Our Board of Directors, with the assistance of outside advisors and consultants, reviewed all aspects of Dollar General’s tender offer and concluded unanimously that this highly conditional Offer is illusory because, as Dollar General is well aware, the Offer cannot close on the terms proposed. Tenders into the Dollar General Offer will be meaningless since there is no way that Dollar General can purchase shares that are tendered.” Levine added, “The terms of the Dollar General Offer are no different from those in its most recent unsolicited proposal, which was previously and unanimously rejected by our Board of Directors based on antitrust regulatory considerations. There is a very real and material risk that the transaction proposed by Dollar General would fail to close, after a lengthy and disruptive review process. Accordingly, our Board has rejected Dollar General’s tender offer and reaffirmed its support of the transaction with Dollar Tree, which delivers attractive value in the form of immediate upfront cash and upside participation in a combined Dollar Tree-Family Dollar entity, as well as closing certainty.” Ed Garden, a Family Dollar director and co-founder and Chief Investment Officer at Trian Fund Management, L.P., a large shareholder of the Company, stated, “We are focused on delivering to Family Dollar shareholders the highest value with certainty, and the Dollar Tree transaction does just that. Dollar Tree has taken the antitrust risk off the table by committing to divest as many stores as necessary to obtain antitrust clearance. We remain fully committed to the Dollar Tree transaction.”
