CAS Investment Partners LLC, which owns around 17% of the company's shares, wrote in the letter Sunday that it plans to vote against a roughly $2.4 billion sale to private-equity firm Hellman & Friedman LLC to buy At Home Group, the report added. CAS said in the letter cited in the Wall Street Journal that the deal "grossly undervalues the company and deprives stockholders of anything resembling a fair premium." It suggested that a price above $70 a share would be more realistic based on its projections and said it is prepared to try to block the current deal if needed, the Wall Street Journal report said.

RADNOR, Pa., May 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The law firm of Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP announces that a securities fraud class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York against Peloton Interactive, Inc. (NASDAQ: PTON) (“Peloton”) on behalf of those who purchased or acquired Peloton securities between September 11, 2020 and May 5, 2021, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Lead Plaintiff Deadline: June 28, 2021 Website: https://www.ktmc.com/peloton-interactive-class-action-lawsuit?utm_source=PR&utm_medium=link&utm_campaign=peloton Contact: James Maro, Esq.

Peloton also provides connected fitness subscriptions and access to all live and on-demand classes. Peloton launched the Tread+ treadmill in 2018. At that time, it was called the “Tread.” Peloton renamed its signature treadmill in September 2020 to “Tread +.” On Wednesday, May 5, 2021, Peloton announced voluntary recalls of both its Tread+ and Tread treadmill machines over safety concerns. Peloton also advised customers who have the products to immediately stop using them and contact Peloton for a full refund. Peloton’s Chief Executive Officer, John Foley said in a statement, “I want to be clear, Peloton made a mistake in our initial response to the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s request that we recall the Tread+.” The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, the defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) in addition to the tragic death of a child, Peloton’s Tread+ had caused a serious safety threat to children and pets as there were multiple incidents of injury to both; (2) safety was not a priority to Peloton as the defendants were aware of serious injuries and death resulting from the Tread+ yet did not recall or suggest a halt of the use of the Tread+; (3) as a result of the safety concerns, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) declared the Tread+ posed a serious risk to public health and safety resulting in its urgent recommendation for consumers with small children to cease using the Tread+; (4) the CPSC also found a safety threat to Tread+ users if they lost their balance; and (5) as a result of the foregoing, the defendants’ statements about Peloton’s business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times. Peloton investors may, no later than June 28, 2021, seek to be appointed as a lead plaintiff representative of the class through Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP or other counsel, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member. A lead plaintiff is a representative party who acts on behalf of all class members in directing the litigation. In order to be appointed as a lead plaintiff, the Court must determine that the class member’s claim is typical of the claims of other class members, and that the class member will adequately represent the class.

The European Union needs to dramatically toughen weak CO2 targets for commercial vans to spur a shift to electric models and phase out fossil-fuel sales entirely by 2035, European campaign group Transport and Environment (T&E) said on Monday. T&E said an analysis of van sales in 2020 showed no change in CO2 emissions from 2017 and found the EU's CO2 targets are so weak that most manufacturers can meet them without selling a single zero-emission van. But electric van sales have languished at about 2% of the market.

On May 12, Musk said Tesla will no longer accept bitcoin for car purchases, citing long-brewing environmental concerns for a swift reversal in the company's position on the cryptocurrency. The Tesla boss' tweets, which had helped drive some of the gains in bitcoin in recent months, last week triggered a 17% slide in the value of the cryptocurrency when he said his company's customers would no longer be able to use bitcoin to buy its cars.
(Bloomberg) -- Elon Musk continued to whipsaw the price of Bitcoin, briefly sending it to the lowest since February after implying in a Twitter exchange Sunday that Tesla Inc. may sell or has sold its cryptocurrency holdings.Bitcoin slid below $45,000 for the first time in almost three months after the billionaire owner of the electric-car maker seemed to agree with a Twitter post that said Tesla should divest what at one point was a $1.5 billion stake in the largest cryptocurrency. It traded at $45,270 as of 5:51 p.m. in New York, down about $4,000 from where it ended Friday.The online commentary was the latest from the mercurial billionaire in a week of public statements that have roiled digital tokens. He lopped nearly $10,000 off the price of Bitcoin in hours last Wednesday after saying Tesla wouldn’t take it for cars. A few days earlier, he hosted “Saturday Night Live” and joked that Dogecoin, a token he had previously promoted, was a “hustle,” denting its price. A few days later he tweeted he was working with Doge developers to improve its transaction efficiency.Musk’s disclosure in early February that Tesla used $1.5 billion of its nearly $20 billion in corporate cash to buy Bitcoin sent the token’s price to record and lent legitimacy to electronic currencies, which have become more of a mainstream asset in recent years despite some skepticism.His latest dustup with Bitcoin started with a tweet from a person using the handle @CryptoWhale, which said, “Bitcoiners are going to slap themselves next quarter when they find out Tesla dumped the rest of their #Bitcoin holdings. With the amount of hate @elonmusk is getting, I wouldn’t blame him...”The Tesla chief executive officer responded, “Indeed.”The twitter account @CryptoWhale, which calls itself a “crypto analyst” in its bio, also publishes a Medium blog on market and crypto trends.Musk has spent hours Sunday hitting back at several different users on Twitter who criticized his change of stance on Bitcoin last week, a move he said was sparked by environmental concerns over the power demands to process Bitcoin transactions. He said at the time that the company wouldn’t be selling any Bitcoin it holds.An outspoken supporter of cryptocurrencies with cult-like following on social media, Musk holds immense sway with his market-moving tweets. He has been touting Dogecoin and significantly elevated the profile of the coin, which started as a joke and now ranks the 5th largest by market value.Dogecoin is down 9.6% in the last 24 hours, trading at 47 cents late Sunday afternoon, according to data from CoinMarketCap.com.Tesla didn’t immediately respond to an email seeking comment on Musk’s tweet on Sunday.Read More: Elon Musk Just Reopened an Old Wound in the Bitcoin WorldMusk’s Sunday social-media escapades were the latest chapter in one of the zaniest weeks in a crypto world famous for its wildness. For die hards, the renewed slumps in Bitcoin and other tokens have done nothing to deter crypto enthusiasts who say digital coins could many times their current value if they transform the financial system.“We’re looking at the long-term and so these blips, they don’t faze us,” Emilie Choi, president and chief operating officer of crypto exchange Coinbase Global Inc., said last week on Bloomberg TV about the wild swings prevalent in the market. “You’re looking for the long-term opportunity and you kind of buckle up and go for it.”Seat belts were needed by anyone watching the crypto world in the past eight days. Aside from Musk’s antics that sent Doge and Bitcoin on wild rides, a host of other developments pushed around prices.Tether, the world’s largest stablecoin, disclosed a reserves breakdown that showed a large portion in unspecified commercial paper. Steve Cohen’s Point72 Asset Management announced that it would begin trading cryptocurrencies. And a longstanding critique of the space reared its head again: illicit usage.It was reported that the owners of the Colonial Pipeline paid a $5 million ransom in untraceable digital currencies to hackers that attacked its infrastructure, while Bloomberg also reported that Binance Holdings Ltd., the world’s biggest cryptocurrency exchange, was under investigation by the Justice Department and Internal Revenue Service in relation to possible money-laundering and tax offenses.But, “for many crypto assets such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, the long-term story has not changed,” said Simon Peters, an analyst at multi-asset investment platform eToro. “This emerging asset class continues to revolutionize many aspects of financial services, and while nothing goes up in a straight line, the long-term fundamentals for crypto assets remain as solid as ever.”Bitcoin was already swinging wildly on the weekend before Musk tweeted. The two days tend to be particularly volatile for cryptocurrencies, which -- unlike most traditional assets -- trade around the clock every day of the week. Bitcoin’s average swing on Saturdays and Sundays so far this year comes in at 4.95%.That type of volatility is owing to a few factors: Bitcoin’s held by relatively few people, meaning that price swings can be magnified during low-volume periods. And, the market remains hugely fragmented with dozens of platforms operating under different standards. That means cryptocurrencies lack a centralized market structure akin to that of traditional assets.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

Book a FREE consultation with Koncept Garage before June 1, 2021 and receive $500 pantry cleanout for FREE with your purchase of a garage cleanoutAUSTIN, Texas, May 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- For the second year in a row, Breed & Co. Ace Hardware is partnering with Koncept Garage to help local homeowners cleanout their houses before Summer arrives. Through June 1st, homeowners in Westlake, Hyde Park and surrounding neighborhoods can receive two cleanouts by professional organizers for the price of one. This year’s giveaway is a free pantry cleanout with the purchase of a garage cleanout. “We’ve worked closely with Koncept Garage for over a year now and it has been fun to help them grow. With dedicated B2B representatives in all our stores now, it is even easier to support them,” says Scott Risner, Breed & Co. Ace Hardware’s Director of Business Development. Last year’s Messy Garage Contest attracted hundreds of participants and provided one lucky winner with a $2,500 cleanout free of charge. This year, the focus shifts inside the home and the number of winners is uncapped. “Many of our clients ask if we can organize other rooms in addition to their garage - the answer is, yes. Our name may say ‘garage’, but our professional organizers are masterful with pantries, closets, and laundry rooms,” adds Jeff Julia, Founder of Koncept Garage. “We also serve commercial clients as well.” Breed & Co.’s focus on both hardware and kitchen supplies makes the promotion an obvious choice, but how does the garage factor into the promotion? “If the pantry is overflowing, where does the overflow go?” asks Jeff. “The garage.” “We want to reverse this cycle to make both the kitchen and garage functional for the whole family to enjoy.” Fueled by the pandemic, both Koncept Garage and Breed & Co. Ace Hardware have experienced explosive growth over the past year. So far in 2021, demand for both companies’ products and services shows no signs of slowing down. “Traditionally, the demand for our garage cleanouts was more seasonal. Now, every week people are reaching out with ideas to gift our services to their family members, like Valentine’s Day organizing jobs and Mother’s Day garage cleanouts. This is way beyond the standard holiday gestures, but it makes our jobs more fun and the surprise reactions even better,” adds Jeff. With Memorial Day fast approaching and Father’s Day coming up next month, the summer looks busy for both Scott and Jeff. To learn more about the promotion or to enter your kitchen pantry for a cleanout, visit the Westlake Hills or 29th Street Breed & Co. Ace Hardware stores. Visit Koncept Garage’s website directly to schedule your free consultation before June 1, 2021 and be automatically entered.

Two more ransomware operators appear to have disappeared from the web, a cybersecurity researcher said on Sunday, in another potential aftershock following this month's hack of U.S. fuel transport company Colonial Pipeline. The sites, run by groups dubbed "AKO" and "Everest", appear to have become unreachable over the weekend, according to Allan Liska, a researcher with cybersecurity firm Recorded Future. Other ransomware groups - who make money by scrambling companies' data and demanding hefty payments in digital currency to unlock it - have said they were shutting down or scaling back operations as the U.S. government ramped up pressure.
