Global Payments could announce $20 billion deal for Total System Services on Tuesday: CNBC
Global Payments Inc. is expected to announce a roughly $20 billion deal for peer Total System Services Inc. on Tuesday, according to CNBC. The deal is expected to be an all-stock transaction, CNBC said, citing multiple anonymous sources. Global Payments and Total System Services didn't respond to requests for comment about the potential deal. Total System Services shares are up 11.2% in midday trading Friday, while Global Payments shares are up 3.7%. "A combined TSYS-Global Payments entity would be a ~$40B market cap payments company with 8% share in U.S. merchant acquiring, and benefit from the similar customer segment focus of the two merchant acquiring business on the [small- and medium-sized business] segment," wrote MoffettNathanson analyst Lisa Ellis. However, she sees other potential deals involving Global Payments as "equally, if not more, likely" given that the company is growing more quickly than Total System Services, which has seen its shares rise 37% this year as the S&P 500 has climbed 13%.

Hibbett shares soar after earnings blow past estimates, guidance raised
Hibbett Sports Inc. shares soared 16.6% in Friday premarket trading after the athletic retailer reported first-quarter earnings that blew past estimates and the company raised its guidance. Net income totaled $27.4 million, or $1.48 per share, up from $21.5 million, or $1.12 per share, last year. Adjusted EPS was $1.61, blowing past the $1.32 Factset consensus. Revenue totaled $343.3 million, up from $274.7 million last year and ahead of the $327.0 million FactSet estimate. Same-store sales rose 5.1% while FactSet expected a 0.7% same-store sales decline. Same-store sales will not include City Gear until the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020. Hibbett announced its acquisition of City Gear, a specialty athletic retailer with 135 stores across 15 states, in October 2018. "We believe our improved web traffic and mobile app, along with continued traction in buy online, pickup in-store, are translating to traffic in our stores and online," said Hibbett Chief Executive Jeff Rosenthal. The company is undergoing a realignment of its stores, with three new stores opened in the quarter, two Hibbett stores rebranded as City Gear shops, one expansion of a "high-performing" Hibbett, and 24 store closures. Hibbett plans to close 95 underperforming stores in fiscal 2020. For the year, Hibbett raised its same-store sales estimate to a 0.5% to 2.0% increase, up from a previous 1% decline to 1% growth. EPS is expected to be $1.70 to $1.85, up from $1.50 to $1.70. Adjusted EPS is now expected to be $2.00 to $2.15, up from $1.80 to $2.00. FactSet is guiding for EPS of $1.90 and same-store sales growth of 0.8%. Hibbett stock has climbed 38.6% for the year to date while the S&P 500 index is up 12.6%.
