19:03 EDTSHLD, LESears completes Land's End spin-off, receives $500M in gross proceeds
Sears Holdings (SHLD) announced that its pro-rata spin-off of Lands' End (LE) from Sears Holdings closed on April 4. Lands' End has now been separated from Sears Holdings and its common stock is expected to begin regular-way trading on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol LE on April 7. Sears Holdings will continue to be listed on the Nasdaq Global Select Market under the symbol SHLD. Sears Holdings received aggregate gross proceeds from the spin-off of $500M, consisting of a cash dividend paid by Lands' End prior to the spin-off to a subsidiary of Sears Holdings. In the spin-off, Sears Holdings distributed a total of approximately 32M shares of Lands' End common stock to the holders of Sears Holdings common stock as of 5:30 p.m. Eastern time on March 24, the record date. Each share of Sears Holdings common stock outstanding as of the record date entitles the holder thereof to receive 0.300795 shares of Lands' End common stock, except that holders of Sears Holdings' restricted stock that was unvested as of the record date will receive cash awards in lieu of shares. In addition, as part of the spin-off, Lands' End entered into an asset-based senior secured revolving credit facility, which provides for maximum borrowings of approximately $175M with a letter of credit sub-limit, and a senior secured term loan facility of approximately $515M. The proceeds of the term loan facility were used to pay the $500M dividend to the Sears Holdings subsidiary and to pay fees and expenses associated with the foregoing facilities of approximately $10M, with the remaining proceeds to be used by Lands' End for general corporate purposes.

10:56 EDTSHLDSears operations erasing $10/share in value each year, says Credit Suisse
In a note titled "Thinking About 'The End,'" Credit Suisse earlier today said events over the past month "had to shake supplier confidence" in Sears. The firm noted that Sears is generating negative operating cash flow of between $1B-$2B in 2014. Credit Suisse concludes that if Sears' real estate assets are worth as much as bulls think they are, then the company should liquidate since its operations are taking over $10 per share of value away every year. It has Underperform rating on Sears with a $20 price target. Shares of the retailer are down 2%, or 66c, to $28.90 in morning trading.
