06:04 EDTSLBSchlumberger agrees to acquire Cameron in deal valued at $14.8B
Schlumberger Limited (SLB) and Cameron (CAM) jointly announced a definitive merger agreement in which the companies will combine in a stock and cash transaction. The agreement was unanimously approved by the boards of both companies. Under the terms of the agreement, Cameron shareholders will receive 0.716 shares of Schlumberger common stock and a cash payment of $14.44 in exchange for each Cameron share. Based on the closing stock prices of both companies on August 25, the agreement places a value of $66.36 per Cameron share, representing a 37.0% premium to Cameron's 20-day volume weighted average price of $48.45 per share, and a 56.3% premium to Cameron's most recent closing stock price of $42.47 per share. Upon closing, Cameron shareholders will own approximately 10% of Schlumberger's outstanding shares of common stock. The total transaction has a value of $14.8B as of August 25. Schlumberger expects to realize pretax synergies of approximately $300M-$600M in the first and second year, respectively. Initially, the synergies are primarily related to reducing operating costs, streamlining supply chains, and improving manufacturing processes, with a growing component of revenue synergies in the second year and beyond. Schlumberger also expects the combination to be accretive to EPS by the end of the first year after closing. The transaction combines two complementary technology portfolios into a "pore-to-pipeline" products and services offering to the global oil and gas industry. On a pro forma basis, the combined company had 2014 revenues of $59B. The transaction is subject to Cameron shareholders' approval, regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions. It is anticipated that the closing of the transaction will occur in Q1 of 2016.
