11:45 EDTSNEMicrosoft slips after confirming purchase of Minecraft maker
Shares of software giant Microsoft (MSFT) are lower after the company reached an agreement to acquire Mojang, the developer for the "Minecraft" video game franchise. WHAT'S NEW: Microsoft announced this morning that it agreed to acquire Mojang for $2.5B. The company expects the acquisition to be break-even in FY15 on a GAAP basis. The acquisition is expected to close in late 2014. Microsoft plans to continue to make "Minecraft" available across all the platforms on which it is available today, which include its own Xbox platform, as well as on PCs, iOS, Android, and Sony's (SNE) PlayStation. "Minecraft" has had more than 100M downloads on PC alone since its launch in 2009, the company stated. WHAT'S NOTABLE: The announcement confirms a Wall Street Journal report from September 9 that said Microsoft was nearing a deal to buy the game maker for more than $2B. The report noted a Mojang acquisition would be the first multi-billion dollar acquisition by CEO Satya Nadella and it may be an unexpected push after Nadella had signaled a focus on its enterprise business rather than its consumer ones. Ahead of the acquisition, Reuters reported on September 13 that the impending purchase is aimed at pulling users onto Microsoft's Windows Phone platform. In the report, Tap Lab CEO Dave Bisceglia said, "If Microsoft could on Windows phones give players a unique and compelling experience that you can't get on the other platforms, that could be a driver to sell devices to existing Minecraft fans.” ANALYST OPINION: The Reuters report also cited Nomura analyst Rick Sherlund, who said "We don't view this acquisition as a signal of Microsoft's intent to double down on Xbox but consider it an attempt to better address mobile on a cross-platform basis." Also commenting on Microsoft this morning was Morgan Stanley, which expects the company to have a durable 12%-14% total return profile from full-year 2015 to full-year 2017. The firm increased its price target on the stock to $51 from $43, but with Microsoft trading at a 13% premium to the S&P, Morgan Stanley said investors should wait for better entry points before getting more aggressive in buying the shares. The firm added that Microsoft's solid enterprise business, stabilizing consumer business, and a shift towards more attractive cloud assets puts its on a more solid footing than it has ever seen, pointing towards sustained EPS growth. PRICE ACTION : In late-morning trading, Microsoft fell $0.42, or 0.9%, to $46.28.
