Mitchell to Acquire Cogent Works

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 2, 2014) - Mitchell, a leading provider of technology, connectivity and information solutions to the Property & Casualty (P&C) claims and Collision Repair industries, today announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire the assets of Cogent Works, a leading provider of pharmacy network and benefit management services to the automobile casualty and workers' compensation markets. This acquisition will allow Mitchell to provide a full end-to-end pharmacy solution to both auto and workers' compensation payers through the integration of Cogent Works' solutions.

Cogent Works operates both AutoRx and CompToday, which specialize in processing and managing P&C pharmacy prescription claims. AutoRx processes prescription claims for persons injured in automobile-related accidents.

"Mitchell is deeply committed to finding new areas of opportunity to deliver more value to our clients. Our acquisition of the Cogent Works business is an example of delivering on that commitment," said Alex Sun, President and CEO of Mitchell. "We believe the combination of Mitchell and Cogent Works will build upon our unique capabilities and market expertise, allowing us to further simplify the claims process starting at the initial onset of injury by seamlessly connecting pharmacies and payers through a vast network of retail pharmacies to create better claim outcomes, while at the same time improving the claims experience for injured persons. Pharmacy costs are a huge and growing challenge in managing claim costs and we believe there is a better way to improve outcomes for our customers."

"Mitchell and Cogent Works share a common vision to provide our customers with a truly differentiated solution to their pharmacy claims management challenges," said Brian Anderson, CEO of Cogent Works. "Together, we believe the combination of both companies is essential to maximizing benefits for our customers and reducing costs associated with pharmacy claims."

Cogent Works will complement Mitchell's current capabilities by expanding their ability to offer pharmacy management at the initial onset of injury. Leveraging the combination of Cogent Works connectivity to retail pharmacies and Mitchell's extensive customer network will provide a differentiated experience to patients, payers and pharmacies.

    Large companies usually have institutions as shareholders, and we usually see insiders owning shares in smaller companies. Falcon Oil & Gas is a smaller company with a market capitalization of CA$211m, so it may still be flying under the radar of many institutional investors. Taking a look at our data on the ownership groups (below), it's seems that institutional investors have bought into the company.

    Chinese buyers are pulling out of New York real estate in droves

    China's capital controls are making their mark on New York's luxury real estate market. In an effort to shore up its currency, the world's second biggest economy has been cracking down on money leaving the country, and there are significant concerns (paywall) about its real estate developers' levels of US dollar debt. Having briefly been the main movers and shakers in New York real estate, Chinese developers have fallen behind the Canadians, the Germans and the Dutch.

    On Watch in the Arabian Gulf: What the U.S. Navy Faces Against Iran

    When oil tankers were bombed in the Persian Gulf two weeks ago, my thoughts turned to the summer of 1987 when I sailed through the narrow Strait of Hormuz for the first time as the Operations Officer in a brand-new Navy Cruiser, the U.S.S. Valley Forge. Like today, tensions were elevated with Iran as a result of their attacks on merchant shipping, carried out largely through dumping mines in international waters – part of the so-called “Tanker War.” Several oil tankers were hit, passage through the Strait was problematic, and the international community sought to keep the Strait open to allow some 30% of the world's oil that moves through it. By spring 1988, the U.S. had attacked the Iranian Navy, sinking several warships and destroying naval bases in Operation Praying Mantis.

    What happened Shares of Pareteum (NASDAQ: TEUM) plunged 20.3% on Wednesday, after the cloud-communications platform specialist found itself in the crosshairs of yet another short-selling firm. In a scathing piece this morning that effectively amplified concerns brought by short-seller Aurelius Value earlier this month, Viceroy Research suggested Pareteum "appears to be in breach of U.S. sanctions against Iran," with its services to Iran-based mobile virtual network operator Amin SMC. Viceroy elaborated that Amin SMC's chairman, Hamid Reza Amirinia, is "suspected of breaching sanctions with an Iranian government mandate to launder money for the regime."

    China renews demand on Canada for Huawei executive's release

    China on Wednesday renewed a demand that Canada release a top executive of tech giant Huawei a day after announcing a suspension of all imports of Canadian meat products in an apparent bid to increase the pressure on Ottawa. Foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told reporters at a daily briefing Wednesday that Canada should "take seriously China's concerns" and immediately release Meng Wanzhou, Huawei's chief financial officer and the daughter of the company's founder. The Chinese Embassy in Ottawa said in a statement Tuesday that Chinese customs inspectors detected residue from a restricted feed additive called ractopamine in a batch of Canadian pork products, prompting the ban.

    The 2 Biggest Casualties From the Celgene-Bristol-Myers Merger (So Far)

    Celgene (NASDAQ: CELG) and Bristol-Myers Squibb (NYSE: BMY) were scheduled to say their official "I dos" in the coming months, but this blended family isn't starting off in Brady Bunch fashion. Last week, Celgene cut ties with BeiGene (NASDAQ: BGNE), giving up its rights to tislelizumab, BeiGene's anti-PD-1 antibody since Bristol-Myers sells a competing PD-1 antibody, Opdivo. Reportedly, the contract said Celgene can't hold two PD-1 class drugs, so Bristol-Myers likely knew it wasn't going to be able to keep rights to tislelizumab when it made the acquisition offer.

    3 Reasons to Wait on Cannabis Favorite Cronos Group

    After global cannabis sales nearly hit $11 billion in 2018, according to the newest "State of the Legal Cannabis Markets" report from Arcview Market Research and BDS Analytics, they're expected to soar to north of $40 billion by 2024, representing a compound annual growth rate of almost 25%. If these various growth forecasts prove accurate and we do see relatively steady double-digit growth rates worldwide in the pot industry over the next 5 to 10 years, there's little doubt that a number of marijuana stocks will come out as winners. Early investors in the marijuana industry have placed their bets and anointed Cronos Group (NASDAQ: CRON) as one of the must-own stocks of the industry.
