    SunEdison, Vivint Pop as Deal Becomes Nearer -- Market Talk
    DOW JONES & COMPANY, INC. 7:46 AM ET 2/26/2016
    Symbol Last Price Change
    SUNE 2.55up +0.83 (+48.26%)
    TERP 8.39up -0.12 (-1.41%)
    QUOTES AS OF 10:46:48 AM ET 02/26/2016

    10:46 ET - Residential solar-power company Vivint (VSLR) getting bought by solar-project developer SunEdison(SUNE) looks more likely now--and shares of both pop in response--after a judge denies hedge fund Appaloosa's effort to block the plan. SUNE intends to flip the VSLR assets to its TerraForm Power(TERP) affiliate, which has historically operated projects developed by SUNE. Appaloosa, a TERP shareholder, has sought to block the sale and been arguing the deal is a better bargain for SUNE than TERP. VSLR bounces 35% and SUNE surges 45%, though both are still down for the month, nevermind 2016. TERP falls 1.9%. Blackstone (BX), which backs VSLR, will get SUNE shares and is providing it a $250M credit facility as part of the sale.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • Blackstone (BX) continually attracted a large amount of capital backed by the strong operating performances of its various funds. The company continued to attract new capital across its product offerings.

    The company’s total dry powder, or undrawn capital, rose by 73% to a record $79.7 billion compared to the same quarter last year. This increase in undrawn capital was driven by fundraising for the latest global private equity and real estate funds.

The division’s assets under management expanded by 16% to $94 billion compared to 4Q1
