Kaley Cuoco files for divorce from husband Ryan Sweeting

After almost two years of marriage, Big Bang Theory actress Kaley Cuoco, 29, announced her separation from tennis player husband Ryan Sweeting, 28, earlier this month due to “irreconcilable differences.” Reports stated that they have been separated since September 3, but the official divorce paperwork was filed on September 25, 2015.

The two dated for a total of six months before marrying in 2013 at a New Year’s Eve ceremony in Southern California. Cuoco has been shooting down rumors of divorce since April of this year, and the actress made several statements in support of her husband against negative rumors. However, both she and Sweeting have recently deleted one another from their social media accounts. After the separation was announced, it was revealed that the couple had a prenuptial agreement in place.

Going through a separation is never easy, and the Cedar Rapids divorce attorneys at Arenson Law Group, PC, understand exactly what you will be dealing with during this stressful time. Our legal team is here to provide professional assistance as you sort through the complex aspects of divorce. To speak to one of our representatives today, call (319) 363-8199.

 


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

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 Law Group, PC, we guide businesses in Cedar Rapids when pursuing such transactions. Call us at (319) 363-8199 for assistance today.
