RadioShack's losses pile up; Time Warner reportedly talking to Vice; GoDaddy gets ready to go public

Allergan (AGN) rejected the latest $53 billion takeover offer from Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX) and investor William Ackman's Pershing Square Capital Management. Botox-maker Allergan said the offer “substantially undervalues the company.”

RadioShack (RSH) reported a much wider-than-expected loss of $0.97 a share. Revenue also missed estimates, falling 13% from a year ago. The company continues to struggle to lure consumers to its stores. Same-store sales fell 14% in the first quarter. RadioShack CEO Joseph Magnacca said the company is "making progress" in turning itself around. The company has a pipeline of new products, and it has also been cutting costs and remodeling stores.

Time Warner (TWX) is reportedly in talks to buy a stake in Vice Media for around $1 billion. Time Warner, whose former-publishing arm Time Inc. (TIME) had its first day of trading as a separate company yesterday, could combine Vice with its HLN network according to reports. Vice started out as a music magazine in 1994. Rupert Murdoch's 21st Century Fox bought a 5% stake in Vice for $70 million last year. That stake valued the company at $1.4 billion.

GoDaddy filed paperwork with the Securities and Exchange Commission for an IPO. The company hopes to raise $100 million, but that figure is just a placeholder until the offering date approaches. The paperwork for the domain registration company revealed the company lost $279 million in 2012, about $200 million in 2013 and $51 million in the first quarter this year.
