    April 8 (Reuters) - Time Warner Inc said its soon-to-be-divested magazine unit Time Inc plans to raise $1.4 billion of debt.

    Time Inc, which publishes titles such as Time, Fortune and People, said it would offer unsecured senior notes and enter into a secured term-loan facility.

    Last year, Time Warner said it would spin off Time Inc, ending weeks of merger negotiations with Meredith Corp.

    Time intends to use the proceeds to fund the acquisition of Time Inc's U.K. publishing business, which is currently a unit of Time Warner, and pay a special cash dividend to its parent.

  • Lawmakers are calling the CEO of Back9Network and the CEO of Spot On Networks to testify on behalf of small rival companies who would be affected by the the proposed $45.2B merger between Comcast (CMCSA) and Time Warner Cable (TWC), reported Bloomberg.

    great 'thought out' comments"--- thank you ---- article I attached somewhere has $144 value if deal took place today ---

  • Merger partners Comcast Corp. (CMCSA) and Time Warner Cable Inc. (TWC) are two of America’s least favorite cable companies, according to a new survey from Consumer Reports.

    The cable giants showed up near the bottom of the magazine’s rankings in a survey of 81,848 users of television, Internet and phone plans, the magazine is reporting today. In the survey, whose results aren’t directly comparable with previous versions, subscribers gave the companies low marks for customer support and for value.

    “Everything else in consumer technology is getting more affordable every year -- everything except communications services,” said Glenn Derene, electronics editor and the lead author of the Consumer Reports story.

    Ensco PLC offers offshore contract drilling services to both domestic and international oil companies. Ensco has the second largest offshore drilling rig fleet in the world, with 75 rigs. Its fleet portfolio includes 10 drillships, 46 independent leg jackups and 19 semisubmersible rigs. It is aggressively investing in its fleet portfolio to provide advanced technology to customers. Consequently, its newly built ultra-deepwater rigs have started work on a multiyear contract with existing customers. It also accepted delivery of two new ultra-premium, harsh environment ENSCO 120 Series jackups. Both ENSCO 120 Series jackups were contracted in advance for a multiyear program. All these positive investments in its business take its backlog to $10.7 billion. It has also generated record revenue and earnings in the last year and has increased its dividends twice by 33% and 50%.

    In addition, $10.7 billion of contract backlog, a strong balance sheet and borrowing capability, with both its commercial paper program and revolving credit facility will all provide more flexibility for the company to make additional investments.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Ensco PLC: The goldilocks oil driller
    In my opinion, Ensco provides investors with the best mix of growth and income within the oil drilling space. It offers a competitive 6% dividend yield and a modest level of capital expenditure requirements. While its competitors such as Transocean and Diamond Offshore grapple with deteriorating core metrics and increasing expenses, Ensco is still seeing strong demand for its rigs and is high-grading its fleet in a manageable way.

    Ensco will only see a small dip in revenue in the current quarter, but thanks to its front-end loaded contract backlog and fluid fleet upgrading strategy, its long-term fundamentals remain extremely promising.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Too late to save the stockholders---NEW YORK (AP) -- Tower Group International Chairman, President and CEO Michael Lee has resigned to pursue personal and other career opportunities.

  • OSLO, Feb 6 (Reuters) - Drillers face a year of pain as they take delivery of a slew of new vessels ordered during boom times just as oil companies ruthlessly tighten spending on offshore exploration.

    Global offshore oil rig rates, already down sharply from record highs last year, could fall as much as 15 percent in some segments and firms with smaller and older fleets could be hurt the most, analysts and executives said.

    Drilling stocks are already down by 20 percent since late last year but analysts at Barclays estimate that there is another 35 percent downside, even under a base case.

    "It going to be a more challenging market for the next 12-18 months because you have several rigs coming into this market or rolling off contracts," Rune Magnus Lundetrae, the Chief Financial Officer of Seadrill, the world's biggest driller by market capitalisation, told Reuters.

    "Rates are likely to drop, but with a widening spread in day rates between older and newer equipment... and there is likely to be more idling for older rigs," he added.

    Although oil and gas investments are seen rising around 5-6 percent next year, the biggest offshore players could tighten their belts the most.

    Shell and Chevron have both said they would reduce their capital spending this year while BP said it expected broadly flat investments.

    "The market has slowed down: drilling in Brazil has slacked off, Gulf of Mexico has slacked off," Bjoernar Iversen, the CEO of driller Songa Offshore, said. "You see oil firms like Statoil saying that they are cutting costs, letting people go and focusing more on capital discipline."

    Market sentiment took a turn for the worse when Noble Corp (NE

    ) , one of the biggest offshore drillers, warned that there was simply too much capacity in the market and modern rigs could push older ones out of the market.

    "Campaigns are being delayed and oil companies are not willing to explore, especially the supermajors and to a lesser degree ONGC, Pemex, and Saudi Aramco," Baard Rosef, an analyst at Pareto Securities said.
