The NZME LTD FPO NZX (ASX: NZM) (or NZME) and Fairfax Media Limited (ASX: FXJ) share prices could receive some attention today. The pair (along with Stuff Limited) confirmed they will apply for leave to appeal the High Court decision upholding the New Zealand Commerce Commission’s decision not to clear or authorise the proposed merger of the two businesses. In an announcement, the company said:

“Given the potentially significant benefits from the merger, NZME is of the view that appealing the High Court decision is in the best interests of NZME, its shareholders and consumers.”

The Bubs Australia Ltd (ASX: BUB) share price could also receive attention. The company said all three stages of its goat milk infant formula will be ranged in Woolworths supermarkets, increasing the availability of the products.

And Rhipe Ltd (ASX: RHP) has released its half-year results. Revenue for the half rose 22% compared to the prior corresponding period while operating expenses grew just 7%. Combined, that contributed to an increase of more than 300% in operating earnings (EBITDA) to $2.8 million.
