ariane: Thales Asset Purchases to Add EU1.9 Billion to Sales (Update1) By Andrea Rothman Jan. 5 (Bloomberg) -- Thales SA, Europe's largest military- electronics maker, expects satellite and transport assets it's buying from Alcatel-Lucent to boost sales by 1.9 billion euros ($2.5 billion), Chief Executive Officer Denis Ranque said. The acquisitions ``will provide a major contribution to sales and be a major accelerator of growth,'' Ranque said at a shareholders meeting in Paris that approved paying for the part of the 1.7 billion euros in purchases with shares. Thales may beat a forecast of increasing revenue to 14 billion euros by 2008 from 10.3 billion euros in 2005, he said. Thales will take over Alcatel-Lucent's stakes in two satellite joint ventures with Finmeccanica SpA as well as full control of two divisions that make railway equipment and security systems. Alcatel-Lucent, the world's biggest maker of telecommunications gear, will more than double its stake in Thales to 21.6 percent from 9.5 percent. The assets disposal was prompted by the $13.4 billion merger of Paris-based Alcatel SA, the world's biggest maker of broadband equipment, with Murray Hill, New Jersey-based Lucent Technologies Inc., the largest U.S. phone-equipment maker. The Alcatel-Lucent combination was completed Nov. 30. Shares, Cash In exchange for buying the Alcatel Transport Solutions railway and subway-equipment business and Paralec security- equipment unit, Thales will provide 25 million new shares to Alcatel-Lucent, amounting to a capital increase of 1 billion euros. Thales expects to complete those takeovers by the end of today. Thales will also pay about 700 million euros in cash for the stakes in the Alcatel Alenia Space satellite-making joint venture, which will be re-named Thales Alenia Space, and Telespazio, a satellite-services provider. Ranque said the transaction will become effective as soon as once it wins regulatory approval. France's government backed Thales's purchase of the satellite holdings to keep critical military assets in France. Officials also want to create larger European companies that can take on U.S. defense giants such as Lockheed Martin Corp., Boeing Co. and Northrop Grumman Corp. Shareholder approval for the satellites assets wasn't required as the purchase is in cash. French, Dassault Stakes The French state, which now owns 31.3 percent of Neuilly Sur Seine, France-based Thales, will remain the electronics company's largest investor with 27.1 percent after the transaction closes. A stake held by Groupe Dassault will drop to 5 percent from 5.7 percent. Dassault's key shareholder, Serge Dassault, has said he intends to sell the Thales holding. Ranque said in April that entering the satellite ventures was planned ``well before'' the Alcatel-Lucent transaction came up. The satellite holdings became ``even more desirable'' in light of the Alcatel-Lucent merger. ``Thales now has activities that are nicely distributed across three areas, including security with 25 percent, aerospace with 25 percent and defense with 50 percent,'' Ranque said today. Regulatory Approval Thales still requires regulatory approval before completing the purchase of the Alenia Space and Telespazio stakes. The European Commission, the executive arm of the 27-nation European Union, extended an antitrust investigation in November after an initial probe found potential competition concerns with the combination of Thales's production traveling wave tubes, a satellite part, with Alcatel Alenia Space's component business. A ruling is due by April 17. Ranque said the transaction will become effective as soon as regulatory approval is awarded. The purchases from Alcatel-Lucent are Thales's biggest acquisition since the 1.3 billion-pound ($2.5 billion) takeover in June 2000 of Racal Electronics Plc, Ranque said. That gave Thales a foothold in the U.K., where competitor BAE Systems Plc dominates. To contact the reporter on this story: Andrea Rothman in Paris Last Updated: January 5, 2007 08:11 EST

waldron: ABB, Alcatel-Lucent, EMI: Credit-Default Swap Market Movers By John Glover Dec. 14 (Bloomberg) -- The following is a list of companies whose credit-default swap prices are changing today. All credit- default swap prices are as of 10 a.m. in London. The perception of European credit quality as measured by the iTraxx Crossover Index improved today. The cost of a credit- default swap based on a 10 million-euro ($13 million) contract on the index, which includes 45 companies with investment-grade and non-investment grade ratings, fell to 228,000 euros, or 0.22 percent, from 228,500 euros, according to data compiled by JPMorgan Chase & Co. The index moves an average of about 1.5 percent a day. Companies in the Crossover Index have more than $80 billion of bonds outstanding. All prices below are based on a contract size of 10 million euros. ABB Ltd. The cost of a credit-default swap contract based on the bonds of the world's largest builder of electricity networks, rose 760 euros to 29,700 euros, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The Zurich-based company may spend ``several'' billion dollars on acquisitions in the next 12 months, ending five years of disposals, Chief Executive Officer Fred Kindle said in an interview. EMI Group Plc. The cost of a credit-default swap contract based on the bonds of the world's third-largest music company climbed for a third day in a row, gaining 2,580 euros to 177,900 euros, according to Bloomberg data. The company today agreed to buy the remaining stake it doesn't own in a Japanese music venture with Toshiba Corp. for 21 billion yen ($179 million). The Wall Street Journal reported Dec. 8 that the London-based company may be close to a deal with buyout firm Permira Advisers LLP. The company said Nov. 28 it had received its second takeover approach in six months. Alcatel-Lucent. The cost of a credit-default swap contract based on the debt of the company created by Alcatel SA's purchase of Lucent Technologies Inc., fell to 91,500 euros from 98,500, according to Credit Market Analysis. Moody's Investors Service on Dec. 11 ended its review of the Paris-based company's credit rating, cutting the corporate family and senior debt ratings to Ba2 from Ba1 and raising some of Lucent's senior debt to Ba3 from B1.

ariane: Alcatel-Lucent rating cut to Ba2 vs Ba1, outlook stable - Moody's LONDON (AFX) - Moody's Investors Service said it cut its corporate family rating on Alcatel-Lucent to Ba2 from Ba1, citing the completion of Alcatel's recent acquisition of Lucent Technologies Inc. "The rating downgrade reflects execution challenges related to the integration of two large companies while keeping major customers, market share and key personnel in an increasingly competitive telecommunication equipment market," Moody's analyst Wolfgang Draack said. It also reflects the broad market position of Alcatel-Lucent and the potential for realizing and retaining substantial cost-savings that could drive earnings before interest, tax and amortization (EBITA)-margins into the high single digits in the medium term, he said. Moody's said the outlook on the company is stable. "We would see potential for a rating upgrade if the company were to keep sales growth above 5 percent and to reach EBITA-margins during 2007 close to double-digit levels, all while maintaining a strong and liquid capital structure," Moody's said. jlw/jlw
grupo guitarlumber: December 7, 2006, 2:25 pm Alcatel-Lucent: Goldman Sees 27% Upside, Reinstates Buy Rating Posted by Eric Savitz Alcatel-Lucent (ALU) shares have gotten a boost today after Goldman Sachs' Tim Boddy re-instated a Buy rating on the stock and said the shares have 27% potential upside. "Our overlap analysis suggests Alcatel-Lucent's new management team can deliver greater than targeted cost synergies much more quickly than investors anticipate," Boddy wrote in a research note this morning. "We also believe that execution risks are not necessarily as high as most investors fear - both Alcatel and Lucent management teams have a solid track record of cost reduction." Boddy does say that the new company, "while stronger than the constituent parts," has a "dull business outlook," with "limited top-line growth," and "fierce pricing pressure eroding underlyingn gross margins by" abotu 140 basis points a year. Boddy adds that fourth quarter results, when reported in February, "will be confusing," given the November 30 closing date of the deal, and that "revenue weakness will continue" into the first half of 2007, "given the distractions created by the merger process." Nonetheless, he expects "early evidence of strong execution on cost reduction combined with rising hopes for re-acceleration in wireless growth to drive EPS upgrades, propelling the stock towards our price target (of $16.16) over the next 12 months." Alcatel-Lucent shares today have gained 47 cents, to $13.74.
waldron: Paris shares close lower as investors pocket gains; Alcatel surges - UPDATE (Updates with full report) PARIS (AFX) - Share prices closed lower, retreating from yesterday's record high as investors consolidated gains while awaiting news on the US economic outlook later this week, beginning with the Federal Reserve's decision on interest rates tomorrow, dealers said. The CAC-40 index finished down 7.27 points at 5,404.54, having touched yesterday its best level since June 2001. Volume for the day reached 4.7 bln euro. Among CAC-40 stocks, 13 closed higher, 25 were lower and 2 were unchanged. November CAC-40 futures were trading down 8.5 points at 5,415.5. The raft of US data releases later this week, including real estate, consumer sentiment and third quarter GDP readings, kept investors wary from pushing stocks higher after recent gains. "The market was looking for clear direction since the beginning of the day," said one strategist in Paris. Among the blue chips posting sharp declines, STMicroelectronics fell 0.37 eur or 2.7 pct to 13.30 ahead of its release of third quarter earnings after the close of US markets tonight. Weaker than expected results from US rival Texas Instruments, including a warning of lower fourth quarter profits than anticipated, weighed on STMicro today. Bouygues fell 1.22 or 2.6 pct to 45.38 as profit-taking followed a strong run. Schneider Electric was off 1.15 or 1.3 pct at 90.95, handing back yesterday's gains after posting third quarter sales of 3.48 bln eur, up 15.3 pct and broadly in line with analyst forecasts. "This report is further proof of strong trends in most geographies. We remain convinced that CEO Jean-Pierre Tricoire will upgrade the margin target range (12.5-14.5 pct) by 100 basis points when the group reports full year figures," said analysts at Societe Generale. On the upside, Alcatel jumped 0.69 or 7.2 pct to 10.29 after posting third quarter net profit of 155 mln eur, well below the analyst consensus forecast for 168 mln due to weakness for mobile telecoms profits. But dealers focused instead on the fourth-quarter earnings for Lucent, which came out well ahead of expectations. Alcatel and Lucent still expect to close their merger deal by the end of this year. Analysts at Fideuram Wargny in Paris noted that Lucent's operating margin reached 15 pct in the quarter, up from 12 pct last year. "And this very good performance for the American group is due in fact... to its mobile activities," the brokerage said. "Lucent's good earnings justify the merger with Alcatel. They have enormously reassured investors as to the interest of this transatlantic deal," said one trader in Paris. On the broader indices, the SBF-80 index rose 18.70 points to 6,233.12 while the SBF-120 fell 2.86 to 3,918.86. The euro stood at 1.2567 usd compared with 1.2549 late yesterday. js/wj/js/rw
waldron: Paris shares close up as Wall St rises on US GDP cheer UPDATE (updates with full report) PARIS (AFX) - Share prices closed firmly higher as Wall Street shook off early sluggishness after a second-quarter GDP report showed that the US economy might be slightly stronger than previously thought, dealers said. The CAC-40 index closed up 22.47 points or 0.44 pct at 5,182.79, on total volume of 3.6 bln eur. 31 CAC-40 stocks closed up and eight down. On the Matif, September CAC-40 futures were trading 15 points firmer at 5,182.5, and the euro rose to 1.2824 usd from 1.2763 usd late yesterday. The US Commerce Department said the economy as measured by the GDP grew at a 2.9 percent annual rate in the second quarter, better than first estimated last month. Natexis said it was reassured by the 4.7 pct jump reported in capital investment, originally reported at 2.7 pct. A wave of corporate news was moving specific blue chips, but dealers said underlying sentiment remains strong in the wake of corporate earnings that have mostly met or exceeded analyst forecasts. Alcatel put in strong gains, closing up 0.38 or 3.95 pct at 9.99 eur as Merrill Lynch resumed coverage with a 'buy' rating, advising shareholders to vote to approve its merger deal with Lucent at the AGM on Sept 7. But dealers noted that some investors could withhold their approval unless Alcatel pays less for Lucent, which faces heavy US pension and health care liabilities. French advisory firm Proxinvest said yesterday that Alcatel should exchange 1 share for 6-7 Lucent shares, instead of the 1-for-5 ratio agreed in April. According to a filing late yesterday with the SEC, the US stock market regulator, disgruntled Lucent shareholders have applied to a New Jersey court to postpone the group's AGM. Alstom extended recent gains, climbing 3.05 or 4.20 pct at 75.75 after winning a 300 mln eur order for two power plants from a Gaz de France unit. Gaz de France, fell 0.13 at 29.28. Shareholder activist Knight Vinke has called on the French government to improve the terms being offered by GDF to Suez as part of their planned merger, or else launch a full cash bid for Suez. Suez gave away 0.18 at 33.51 and EDF showed the sharpest losses on the CAC-40, down 0.72 or 1.59 pct at 44.44, after news of a government plan that would allow French businesses to return to a regulated electricity tariff structure, even though they opted to buy on the open market several years ago, when prices were low. EDF is by far the largest electricity provider to the non-regulated market, but Suez is also a major supplier to the nearly 565,000 small and medium-sized companies who would be eligible to return to a regulated structure. EDF warned today that the measure would have a "significant impact" on 2007 and 2008 earnings. On the second line, TF1 slumped 0.62 or 2.39 pct at 25.30 after the broadcaster posted better first-half earnings than expected, but warned of a renewed downturn in ad spending in August. Rival M6 added to yesterday's losses, shedding 0.40 or 1.58 pct at 24.91. Scor fell 0.12 or 5.97 pct at 1.89 after posting first half profits ahead of expectations, but dealers said they were eclipsed by a drop in the combined ratio for non-life divisions. Analysts at heavyweight brokerage CA Cheuvreux cut their rating on the stock to '3 Underperform' from '2 Outperform' after the figures were released. Euronext advanced 2.15 or 3.18 pct at 69.80 as strong August volume figures for its cash and derivatives markets offset the markets operator's weaker than expected second-quarter results, dealers said. mrg/abr
waldron: Citigroup Supports Alcatel Lucent Merger Wednesday, August 30, 2006 3:28:51 AM ET Dow Jones Newswires 0606 GMT [Dow Jones] Citigroup reiterates buy recommendation on Alcatel (ALA) with a EUR14 price target, saying that while there is some speculation investors may block the merger with Lucent (LU) "we don't understand why and see a compelling value case for a combined entity, provided cost synergies are met." Says that on a pro-forma basis, Alcatel and Lucent could generate EPS of EUR0.71 in 2007 and EUR0.99 in 2008, excluding merger charges and Lucent's gross pension credits. Says synergy targets are not aggressive and sees more potential for cost cutting. Alcatel shares closed at EUR9.61. (NAS)
