15:26 EDTHALBaker Hughes, Halliburton differed on pace of deal discussions, WSJ says
Before going hostile, Halliburton (HAL) indicated it would raise its mid-October bid to buy Baker Hughes (BHI), says the Wall Street Journal. According to the Wall Street Journal report, Halliburton did not come through with an improved bid before Friday, a deadline to nominate directors to Baker Hughes’s board for the company’s annual meeting in April. According to people familiar with the matter between Oct. 13, when Halliburton made its proposal to Baker Hughes, and this past Friday, Halliburton felt Baker Hughes wasn’t engaging on the offer and Baker Hughes felt pressured by its rival to act quickly under a deadline, added the Wall Street Journal.
