Normally when you snooze you lose. But SHPG has lots of lenders on their side and deep pockets, so a BXLT buyout offer is still on the table.
@Shire Plc, the drugmaker that’s made a $30 billion unsolicited offer to buy Baxalta Inc., agreed to buy biotechnology company Dyax Corp. for at least $5.9 billion in cash to gain a promising treatment for a rare genetic disorder. Dublin-based Shire will fund the acquisition, which the companies expect to complete in the first half of 2016, using a $5.6 billion term loan and its $2.1 billion revolving credit facility. The transaction is backed by the boards of both companies, but requires Dyax shareholders’ approval. Shares of Dyax soared. “Even with this transaction, we will continue to have the financial firepower to pursue other value-added strategic acquisitions, including Baxalta,” Shire Chief Executive Officer Flemming Ornskov said in the statement.
Keep your stinking F35's to yourselves. Canada does not need F35's for peacekeeping missions.
As far as desalination facilities in Egypt, I don't see how that relates in the least to the MOCVD tools AIXG designs and sells, despite all your efforts to explain it. As I told you before, I don't possess crypto-keys to decode your riddles. Maybe you could try in plain English for once. Otherwise, I don't care Loony.
If this turns out to be a revenge attack by ISIS on Russia, will USA acknowledge that Russia is actually on the same side in the war against ISIS, or will the spin-machine go into overdrive and burn up in a ball of flames.
@A militant group affiliated to Islamic State in Egypt said in a statement that it brought down the plane "in response to Russian airstrikes that killed hundreds of Muslims on Syrian land", but Russia's Transport Minister Maxim Sokolov told Interfax news agency the claim "can't be considered accurate".
I doubt it will act as much of a deterrent. It's like smoking. Tax on tobacco is fairly ineffective at convincing smokers to stop.
and I don't see one post about it. Why is it that there's when Russia steps in with the approval of the legitimately elected Syrian government to fight anti-Syrian rebels (ISIS and others) the action is met with disapproval and protest, but when USA puts troops there with no authorization from the nation it's A-OK?
Yeah deny some poor kid in a Batman suit a freakin candy or two. Is there anything you don't have a problem with? How pathetic.
Stop making a big stink about nothing. If you don't like it, you can simply renounce your US citizenship to officially become stateless, and go live on a boat in international waters or the moon or another planet or whatever. sheesh.
@The United States, which is not a signatory to the 1954 Convention on the Status of Stateless Persons nor the 1961 Convention on the Reduction of Statelessness, is one of a small number of countries which will allow its citizens to renounce their citizenship even if they do not hold any other. The Foreign Affairs Manual instructs State Department employees to make it clear to Americans who will become stateless after renunciation that they may face extreme difficulties (including deportation back to the United States) following their renunciation, but instructs employees to afford such persons their right to give up citizenship
I'm long you tool. Maybe you should bump your mindless pump post again... ya know the "25% up for the year" nonsense
The main concern I have with OLED is their dismal and opaque negotiating skills. As the owner of pholed technology, the firm was and continues to be in a strong position to mandate licensing, material, and royalties contract terms that ensure OLED revenues and profits match or exceed growth in amoled area display volumes. Contract terms, properly designed, should fully offset expected manufacturing improvements such as more efficient usage of materials (via lower emitter doping levels or thinner active layers) or yield increases by display makers. Instead, on quarterly calls, shareholders gradually discover contract conditions like material volume discounts. It all comes down to proper monetization of assets, and OLED has so far failed to deliver the goods. I expect we'll soon hear about volume royalty breaks too as LG ramps TV output. This company has been a major disappointment, much like CREE.
Dear Loony: Why is it okay for USA to invade (I believe that is the correct terminology when a country puts troops or planes inside a nation without their express approval) Syria, but not okay for Russia to set up a military base in that same nation when given the consent of the legitimately-elected Syrian government? Certainly not a case of gooses and ganders here fer sure.
I feel like a fish right now. I see that big fat dividend floating out there and my stomach says GET IT. But my brain says NO that's just bait, not a meal. I don't want to end up being served up as dinner at some broker's xmas party. So for now I'll keep watching this chunk of food to see if it's really that or if a metal hook catches a ray of sunlight and gleams, revealing that it's a trap.
I asked this question before but no one responded... Is Essar Steel an SXCP customer?
@As published reports say Essar Steel Algoma plans to file for insolvency for the fourth time in the Sault steelmaker's history, the question of 'What can government do to help' has begun to surface. As reported earlier Thursday by SooToday, a Hamilton Spectator report quotes unnamed sources as stating the company plans on filing for insolvency. Bloomberg Business quotes a Standard & Poor's analyst as saying the credit rating firm does not expect Essar Group to support Essar Steel financially this time around. "We continue to feel that it will face a liquidity crisis and default on its debt obligations within six months without a sustained, near-term rebound in steel prices," said Jarret Bilous, of Standard & Poor's in the Bloomberg report. Earlier this month, Standard & Poor's lowered Essar Steel Algoma's long term corporate credit rating from 'CCC+ to'CCC-' based on a continued decline in hot rolled steel and plate prices. Reuters reported Monday the company has asked for advice from restructuring specialists Evercore Partners Inc and law firm Weil Gotshal & Manges LLP to help with debt restructuring.
The two companies both derive a large part of their revenues from a blockbuster drug which in both cases faces competition in the not-too distant future. Yet ABBV trades at a much higher PE. Is ABBV's pipeline really that much more diversified and valuable than GILD's?
The only wizards here casting spells on AZPN are the MM's ie. Monkey Machine, Money Makers, or whatever term you prefer.
