Alphabet evaluating bid to add Twitter to Google: reportExternal Link

Alphabet Inc. has hired an adviser to help evaluate a bid to acquire Twitter Inc. , which would add another Internet advertising revenue stream to the search giant's portfolio, Bloomberg News reported Friday afternoon. Twitter is looking for potential acquisition bids, according to a report last week, and reports of companies evaluating the move so far have included Salesforce.com Inc. and Walt Disney Co. Bloomberg reported that Alphabet had hired Lazard Ltd. to evaluate a potential acquisition, the same firm that oversaw Alphabet's acquisition bid for Apigee Corp. earlier this year. Twitter shares, which have gained nearly 25% since reports of a potential acquisition surfaced last week, added almost 4% in after-hours trading Friday after the report hit. Alphabet shares were stable in late trading.

KBR shares drop as project cost increase cuts into profit outlookExternal Link

KBR Inc. shares fell in the extended session Friday after the engineering and energy-industry services company cut its profit outlook for the year because of increased costs. KBR shares dropped 7.5% to $14 after hours. The company now forecasts full-year adjusted earnings of 30 cents to 50 cents a share, down from a previous range of $1.20 to $1.45 a share. Analysts surveyed by FactSet had estimated full-year earnings of $1.30 a share. The bulk of the cost increases center on an engineering, procurement and construction project for an electric power-generating facility, KBR said. "While the cost increases are highly disappointing, particularly on the power project, these legacy projects are nearing completion and we will not execute any new standalone fixed price EPC power projects," the company said in a statement. "We believe this performance confirms that the decision for KBR to exit the fixed price EPC power business is the right one."
