India’s top court squashed a decision that threatened the ArcelorMittal’s $6 bln bid for Essar through a new bankruptcy regime. It’s a timely boost for lenders and investors needed to re-energise the flagging economy, says @ugalani: https://bit.ly/2QlpWYF

Thermo Fisher Scientific has diagnosed a rare opportunity to snatch up a big rival. The short-term risk is that Qiagen resists Thermo Fisher’s advances; the longer-term risk is that the returns from the deal fall short, writes @rob_cyran. https://bit.ly/32KhzZ9
Watch: Carl Icahn, already an investor in Xerox, has now bought a stake in HP – which the much smaller Xerox last week offered to buy. With scope to merge the printing businesses somehow, the activist could win either way, says @richardbeales1.
