12:20 EDTLOLorillard to pay $1.133B in April under State Settlement Agreements
In April, the company paid, or will pay, $1.133B under the State Settlement Agreements, primarily based on 2014 volume. Included in the payment is $93M deposited in an interest-bearing escrow account in accordance with procedures established in the MSA pending resolution of a claim by the company and the other Original Participating Manufacturers that they are entitled to reduce their MSA payments based on a loss of market share to non-participating manufacturers. The previously-announced combination with Reynolds American (RAI) remains subject to regulatory approval and the additional customary closing conditions contained in the merger agreement. Although no assurance can be given if and when the transaction will be completed because it remains subject to regulatory approval and additional customary closing conditions, the transaction is expected to close in the first half of 2015.

"We continue to see tangible benefits from the investments we have made to strengthen our value proposition for customers. Our comparable store sales and customer traffic trends are improving, and we are beginning to see stabilization in key categories. While our trends in late-February were adversely impacted by severe winter weather, our sales trends in March rebounded nicely, reflecting both improved traffic trends and the benefit of an earlier Easter,” said Howard R.

16:38 EDTFDODollar Tree discloses update on FTC review process of Family Dollar acquisition
Dollar Tree (DLTR) disclosed in a regulatory filing, the following update on the Federal Trade Commission’s review process of the company’s pending acquisition of Family Dollar Stores (FDO). As of April 1, the FTC’s staff has substantially completed its review and identified approximately 340 stores for divestiture, representing approximately $47.4M of operating income. The company expects that all or almost all of the stores that will be divested will be Family Dollar stores. The company continues to make progress with divestiture buyers and has received multiple indications of interest from buyers, each of whom intend to operate these divested locations as dollar stores to address the FTC's concerns. The company is working to finalize divestiture agreements with the selected bidders in April 2015 and in parallel to secure FTC approval. The company intends to close the proposed merger in May, but this timing is subject to certain factors beyond the company’s control, including FTC approval.
