Newell Brands to sell Tools business to Stanley Black & Decker for $1.95B

Newell Brands (NWL) announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to sell its Tools business, including the Irwin, Lenox and Hilmor brands, to Stanley Black & Decker (SWK). This agreement has been reached in the context of a series of strategic changes announced last week related to the company's new corporate strategy. Gross proceeds from the divestiture are expected to be $1.95B, which includes retained accounts receivable, subject to customary working capital and transaction adjustments. Net sales for the divested business were approximately $760M for the last twelve months. The transaction is expected to close in the first half of 2017, subject to certain customary conditions, including regulatory approvals. Proceeds will be primarily used to pay down debt in furtherance of the company's stated goal of achieving a leverage ratio of 3 to 3.5 times EBITDA by the end of 2018. If the transaction were to be completed on December 31, 2016, the company would expect normalized EPS dilution of approximately 15c on an annualized basis after the benefit of short term cost actions and lower interest expense related to accelerated debt repayment. J.P. Morgan acted as financial advisor to Newell Brands on the transaction. As previously announced, as the result of a recently completed strategic review of its portfolio, Newell Brands has taken the decision to hold a number of other businesses for sale including its two winter sports units, Volkl(R) and K2(R), within the Outdoor Solutions Segment, its Heaters, Humidifiers, and Fans business within the Consumer Solutions Segment and the Rubbermaid(R) Consumer Storage business within the Home Solutions segment. Newell Brands will retain its Dymo(R) Industrial labeling business within the reported Tools segment. The total 2015 net sales of the remaining businesses held for sale is approximately $700 million. Sales processes are underway and the company hopes to complete the divestiture of the remaining assets held for sale within the first half of 2017.

Newell Brands new CFO has several positive attributes, says RBC Capital
RBc Capital believes that Newell's (NWL) new CFO, Ralph Nicoletti, will bring "increased financial discipline," a focus on total shareholder returns, "and a very analytical, research driven approach to decision making and strategy" to the position. The firm notes that some investors have been concerned about the 36% underperformance by Tiffany's (TIF) stock during his tenrue at that company. However, RBC says that Tiffany's results have always been "volatile," particularly recently due to macro issues. RBC says that the shares of Alberto-Culver and Cigna (CI) outperformed during Nicoletti's stints as CFO of those companies. RBC keeps a $60 price target and Top Pick rating on Newell.

Newell Brands investor concerns over growth abating, says UBS
UBS said as Newell Brands investors concerns abate, their attention will turn to the long-term. The firm tweaked its growth forecast but raised its earnings forecast to reflect the company's underlying strength, better margin mix, and sales leverage benefits. UBS reiterated its Buy rating and raised its price target to $59 from $55 on Newell Brands shares.

The analyst believes Newall's market share gains are sustainable and sees substantial earnings upside for the combined entity.

Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Workday (WDAY) downgraded to Mixed from Positive at OTR Global and to Hold from Buy at Needham with Needham analyst Scott Berg citing industry checks that indicate second quarter billings upside will be limited and Financials sales remain challenging. 2.
