Sunrun Inc (RUN) & Vivint Solar Inc (VSLR):
  • Sunrun said on Monday it will buy Blackstone-backed peer Vivint Solar for about $1.46 billion in an all-stock deal, as the top U.S. residential solar installers look to solidify their market position
  • The deal will also help Sunrun compete better with Tesla's SolarCity in a residential solar market, which, according to the companies, has reached only 3% penetration in the United States
  • Vivint Solar shareholders will receive 0.55 of Sunrun common stock for each share held, representing a premium of 10.4% to Vivint's Monday close
  • The deal, unanimously approved by the companies' boards, is valued at $3.2 billion including debt

Becton Dickinson and Co (BDX):
  • The U.S. Food and Drug Administration alerted clinical laboratories and healthcare providers on Monday about false positive results from one of Becton Dickinson and Co's COVID-19 molecular diagnostic tests
  • The test, designed to detect viral nucleic acid from the virus that causes COVID-19, is in use in nearly every state across the U.S. at hundreds of laboratories
  • In one study, the manufacturer found about 3% of the results were false positives, according to the FDA
Moderna Inc (MRNA):
  • As the United States accelerates the search for a coronavirus vaccine, tensions have erupted between government scientists and Moderna, one of the leading developers, Reuters has learned
  • The company - which has never produced an approved vaccine or run a large trial - has squabbled with government scientists over the process, delayed delivering trial protocols and resisted experts’ advice on how to run the study, according to three sources familiar with the vaccine project
  • The sources said those tensions, which have not been previously reported, have contributed to a delay of more than two weeks in launching the trial of the Moderna’s vaccine candidate, now expected in late July
Novavax Inc (NVAX):
  • The U.S. government has awarded the company $1.6 billion to cover testing, commercialization and manufacturing of a potential coronavirus vaccine in the United States, with the aim of delivering 100 million doses by January 2021
  • The award is the biggest yet from "Operation Warp Speed", the White House program aimed at accelerating access to vaccines and treatments to fight the coronavirus that causes COVID-19
Royal Caribbean Group (RCL) & Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd (NCLH):
  • Cruise industry rivals are teaming up in an effort to sail again

  • The “Healthy Sail Panel,” co-chaired by former Utah Governor Mike Leavitt and former U.S. Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, is advising the companies on restart plans they will submit to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other regulators at the end of August
