U.S. Construction Spending Inches Up Much Less Than Expected In March

With a jump in spending on residential construction partly offset by decreases in spending on non-residential construction and public construction, the Commerce Department released a report on Monday showing U.S. construction spending rose by much less than expected in the month of March.

The report said construction spending inched up by 0.2 percent to an annual rate of $1.513 trillion in March after falling by 0.6 percent to a revised rate of $1.510 trillion in February.

Economists had expected construction spending to spike by 2.0 percent compared to the 0.8 percent drop originally reported for the previous month.

The uptick in construction spending came as spending on residential construction surged up by 1.7 percent to an annual rate of $725.2 billion.

On the other hand, the report showed spending on non-residential construction slid by 0.9 percent to an annual rate of $444.0 billion.

Spending on public construction also tumbled by 1.5 percent to an annual rate of $343.9 billion, reflecting steep drops in spending on both educational and highway construction.

Compared to the same month a year ago, total construction spending in March was up by 5.3 percent.

Allergan Aesthetics To Buy Soliton For $22.60/Share In Cash – Quick Facts

Allergan Aesthetics, an AbbVie company (ABBV) and Soliton (SOLY) announced Monday a definitive agreement under which Allergan Aesthetics will acquire Soliton and Resonic, its Rapid Acoustic Pulse device which recently received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance and is a non-invasive treatment for the short-term improvement in the appearance of cellulite.

Resonic has also received FDA 510(k) clearance for use in conjunction with laser for tattoo removal and has demonstrated clinical results in fibrotic scars.

The acquisition of Soliton expands and complements Allergan Aesthetics’ Body Contouring treatment portfolio which includes CoolSculpting Elite.

The novel platform technology uses non-invasive rapid, high-frequency sound waves to disrupt targeted cellular structures and connective tissue, physically impacting the fibrous septae beneath the skin that contribute to the dimpled appearance of cellulite.

Under the terms of the transaction, Allergan Aesthetics will pay $22.60 per share in cash for each outstanding share of Soliton. Soliton’s enterprise value for the transaction is approximately $550 million and was approved by the Boards of Directors of both companies.

The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including clearance by the U.S. antitrust authorities under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act and approval of Soliton’s shareholders.
