06:21 EDTSBUX, TEATeavana reaches settlement with shareholders over Starbucks deal
Teavana Holdings (TEA), Starbucks (SBUX) and Taj Acquisition Corp., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Starbucks, entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger. Andrew T. Mack, SKM Equity Fund III, L.P., SKM Investment Fund and Jurgen W. Link, the holders of 28,749,196 shares of Teavana’s common stock, which constitute approximately 74% of the voting power of the outstanding shares of Teavana’s common stock, executed a written consent approving and adopting the Merger Agreement. As a result, no further approval of the stockholders of Teavana is required to adopt the Merger Agreement. Starting on November 19, three purported Teavana stockholders filed putative class actions. A fourth class action was filed in the State of Georgia on December 7 and was voluntarily dismissed without prejudice on December 13. On December 14, the parties to the Stockholder Actions entered into an MOU reflecting an agreement in principle to resolve the Stockholder Actions. Subject to completion of certain confirmatory discovery by counsel to the plaintiffs, the MOU stipulates that the parties will enter into a stipulation of settlement. As part of the settlement, the defendants deny all allegations of wrongdoing and deny that the disclosures in the Definitive Information Statement were inadequate but have agreed to provide supplemental disclosures.

10:54 EDTSBUXDunkin' same-store sales fall amid increased competition
Dunkin' Brands (DNKN) reported higher than expected top and bottom line fourth quarter results this morning, but the company noted that same-store sales fell 0.8% for its flagship Dunkin' Donuts brand in the U.S. The company's same-store sales decline was in contrast to Starbucks (SBUX), which recently reported a comparable store sales increase in the U.S., and come after McDonald's (MCD) launched its "All-Day Breakfast" initiative. WHAT'S NEW: Dunkin' reported Q4 earnings per share of 52c, versus the consensus estimate of 50c. Its Q4 revenue came in slightly above expectations. However, the chain reported that its same-store sales slid 0.8% versus the same period a year earlier in its Dunkin' Donuts locations. The company provided fiscal 2016 earnings guidance that was in-line with expectations, excluding certain items. It expects its U.S. Dunkin' Donuts same-store sales to rise 0%-2% in fiscal 2016. In comparison, Starbucks reported that its Americas same-store sales jumped 9% in Q4. Of note, Dunkin' Brands raised its dividend by 13% to 30c per share. ANALYST REACTION: Dunkin's same-store sales came in below expectations, wrote Michael Gallo, an analyst at CL King. However, excluding a decline of 1.2 percentage points in sales of the company's K-cup offerings, the company's same-store sales were flat, he stated. McDonald's launch of all-day breakfast clearly negatively impacted Dunkin, as guest traffic at Dunkin's stores fell one percentage point, the analyst stated. Gallo kept a Buy rating on the shares but noted that he was placing his price target under review. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Dunkin Brands shares gained 2% to $41.72.
