Ubisoft shares climb as company looped in to Microsoft’s new Activision bid

French gaming firm Ubisoft Entertainment was 6.6% higher at 8:32 a.m. BST, after Microsoft unexpectedly submitted to U.K. regulators a new deal for the takeover of Activision Blizzard.

Under the restructured deal, Microsoft will not acquire cloud rights for existing Activision PC and console games, or for new games released by Activision over the next 15 years. The rights will instead be divested to Ubisoft prior to any acquisition.

Microsoft’s initial bid to buy the Call of Duty gaming juggernaut was rejected by U.K. authorities. A decision on the new deal is due Oct. 18.

Powell will likely focus on short-term monetary policy in Wyoming, Allianz economist says

Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell may not focus on what’s best for him in his remarks from Jackson Hole, Wyoming, later this week, according to Mohamed El-Erian, Allianz chief economic advisor.

“What’s likely is that he’s probably going to talk about short-term monetary policy issues,” El-Erian said on CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street.” “I don’t think that’s the best thing to do, because it is a very delicate situation right now.”

Still, El-Erian said the central bank leader could be helped given the “target-rich environment,” adding that there’s “a lot” he can talk about.
