U.S. crane maker Terex and Finnish competitor Konecranes to merge

Posted on Tuesday, September 1st, 2015 at 7:34 pm    

Amid a more stringent competition and weak European and Chinese markets, U.S. cranes and heavy equipment manufacturer Terex and its Finnish competitor Konecranes have recently agreed to a $10 billion all-share merger, Reuters reported on Tuesday, August 11.

According to the deal, Terex investors will own 60% of the combined company while shareholders from Konecranes will own the rest of the company. The enlarged entity, which will be called Konecranes Terex, will be based in Hyvinkaa, Finland, as well as Westport, Connecticut.

The two companies said the deal would help them save costs and aim for cross-selling amid market challenges. They also hope that the move will generate $119 million in annual net income benefits three years after its completion.

The merger is expected to end early next year.

Mergers such as this are strategic – especially when dealing with market challenges. At Arenson & Maas, PLC, we guide businesses in Cedar Rapids when pursuing such transactions. Call us at (319) 363-8199 for assistance today.

Dean McDermott’s ex-wife wants child support payments

Posted on Sunday, August 23rd, 2015 at 8:14 pm    

Court documents have been served to Tori Spelling’s husband, Dean McDermott, after allegedly falling behind his child support payments for his oldest child Jack, SF Gate reported on Thursday, August 20.

McDermott’s ex-wife and the mother of his 16-year-old son, Mary Jo Eustace, is claiming that the reality T.V. star has failed to pay for their son’s child support for five months. McDermott has been given 30 days to pay Eustace $8,700 in full to avoid facing legal consequences. McDermott is yet to comment on the issue.

Eustace and her son Jack have appeared several times in some of McDermott and Spelling’s reality T.V. shows. Last year, Eustace was seen chatting with Spelling in her ex’s reality TV show, and had also been spotted at a birthday party at her ex’s house.
