    Equifax executives subject to criminal probe: report

    The U.S. Justice Department has begun a criminal investigation into sales of stock by Equifax Inc. executives, Bloomberg News reported, citing people familiar with the investigation.

Lawmakers, state attorneys general and several regulators are scrutinizing the breach that compromised the privacy of 143 million U.S. consumers, according to Equifax statements. Equifax shares have fallen 35% since the breach was disclosed on Sept. 7 after the market close.

    Alexion to fire 20% of global workforce in restructuring

    Alexion Pharmaceuticals Inc. said early Tuesday that it plans to fire 20% of its global workforce as part of a restructuring effort. Alexion expects pre-tax savings of about $270 million in GAAP and about $250 million in non-GAAP each year by 2019, and said that expenses associated with the restructuring are expected to total $340 million to $440 million. The changes will affect GAAP EPS guidance but not the company's 2017 revenue guidance or 2017 non-GAAP EPS guidance. Alexion said the restructuring savings will allow it to meet financial ambitions, "including growing GAAP operating margin to 37% and non-GAAP operating margin to 50% in 2019," and that it plans to invest about $100 million a year into research and development starting next year. As part of the restructuring, the company said it plans to eliminate spend and workers associated with de-prioritized drug pipeline programs, close multiple company sites, including its Rhode Island manufacturing facility and certain regional and country-based offices, and outsource certain non-core finance and IT roles. Alexion also plans to relocate its headquarters from New Haven, Ct. to Boston, Ma. by mid-2018, with about 400 jobs based in Boston; New Haven will be Alexion's "Center of Excellence" with about 450 jobs based there in research labs, clinical supply and quality teams, nurse case management and enterprise business services. Alexion shares were not active in premarket trade. Shares have surged 33.7% over the last three months, compared with a 2.4% rise in the S&P 500 .Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Eli Lilly to cut 3,500 jobs after part of cost cutting plan

    Eli Lilly & Co. said it will cut about 3,500 jobs, or about 8.3% of its global workforce, as part of a streamlining plan aimed at cutting costs by $500 million a year. The drug giant expects most of the job cuts to come in the U.S. from a voluntary early retirement program, which it expects to be mostly completed by the end of the year. Other workforce reductions are expected to come from streamlining moves, including site closures. Lilly expects to record charges of $1.2 billion, or 80 cents a share, in the third and fourth quarters of 2017. The company plans to use the cost savings to improve its cost structure and reinvest in its business. "The actions we are announcing today will result in a leaner, more nimble global organization and will accelerate progress towards our long-term goals of growing revenue, expanding operating margins and sustaining the flow of life-changing medicines from our pipeline," said Chief Executive David Ricks. The stock, which slipped less than 0.1%, has gained 9.5% year to date through Wednesday, while the SPDR S&P Pharmaceuticals ETF has rallied 8.9% and the S&P 500 has tacked on 10%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
