17:32 EDTCNI, KSUNorfolk Southern spikes after Canadian Pacific proposes merger
Shares of railroad operator Norfolk Southern (NSC) are spiking in the after-hours after rival Canadian Pacific (CP) announced that it has sent an offer letter to Norfolk Southern proposing a business combination. WHAT'S NEW: After the close of trading on Tuesday, Canadian Pacific proposed a business combination with Norfolk Southern "that would create a transcontinental railroad with the scale and reach to deliver improved levels of service to customers and communities while enhancing competition and creating significant shareholder value." Canadian Pacific noted that the proposal reflects a "sizable premium in cash and stock offered to NS shareholders." The combined company would have a potential for faster earnings growth than either of the companies independently, CP noted, while offering unparalleled customer service and competitive rates to shippers." The combined company would innovate a new approach to terminal access that would allow another carrier to operate from a point of connection in the event the combined company failed to provide adequate service or competitive rates. The combination of NS and CP would provide a solution to "bottleneck pricing" and alleviate congestion in Chicago by channeling rail traffic away from Chicago. WHAT'S NOTABLE: According to a Globe and Mail report from earlier Tuesday, Keith Creel the COO of Canadian Pacific, who was speaking at a transportation conference, said rail mergers are inevitable but the executive "refused" to confirm past reports that the railroad operator was in talks to acquire rival Norfolk Southern. ANALYST VIEW: ON November 12, research firm BB&T said it believes there are many scenarios in which a merger between Canadian Pacific and Norfolk Southern would benefit both companies. The firm said that Norfolk Southern shareholders would get a 20%-30% premium above the stock's current level, while Canadian Pacific's potential revenue growth issues would be solved and its 2018 EPS would be boosted by 20% plus. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Norfolk Southern are up 6.9% to $93.00, while Canadian Pacific shares are unchanged. OTHERS: Publicly traded companies in the space include CSX (CSX), Canadian National (CNI), Genesee & Wyoming (GWR), Kansas City Southern (KSU) and Union Pacific (UNP).

06:32 EDTMPCMPLX and MarkWest combination receives further cash consideration from Marathon
MPLX (MPLX) and MarkWest Energy (MWE) announced that, in connection with the anticipated combination of MPLX and MarkWest, Marathon Petroleum (MPC) has agreed to further increase the amount of the one-time cash consideration payable to MarkWest common unitholders to $6.20 per unit, up from the cash consideration previously announced on Nov. 10, 2015, of approximately $5.21 per unit. This cash consideration represents a significant enhancement to the initial July 13, 2015, offer which was approximately $3.37 per unit. Under the revised terms of the merger agreement announced today, which represents the best and final offer, MarkWest common unitholders will receive approximately $1.28 billion in total cash consideration and 1.09 MPLX common units per MarkWest common unit, for a total consideration of approximately $51.74 per MarkWest common unit, based on the closing price of MPLX's common units on Nov. 16, 2015. Three of MarkWest's largest unitholders, Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors, L.P., Tortoise Capital Advisors, L.L.C., and, as previously announced, The Energy & Minerals Group, which cumulatively represent more than 15 percent of MarkWest's outstanding units entitled to vote, have all entered into voting agreements to vote in favor of the transaction. The merger is also recommended by each of the boards of MPC, MPLX and MarkWest, and the executive management of both partnerships strongly support the transaction and its revised terms. The combination will create one of the largest master limited partnerships, which is expected to generate a mid-20 percent compound annual distribution growth rate through 2019. The transaction is subject to approval by MarkWest unitholders and other customary closing conditions and, subject to the satisfaction of those conditions, is expected to close in December 2015. The date of the special meeting of MarkWest common unitholders is Dec. 1, 2015. MarkWest unitholders of record as of Oct. 5, 2015, will be entitled to vote on approval of the merger and the associated proposals.
