10:31 EDTSNP, APAApache advances after selling stake in Egypt business
Shares of energy explorer Apache (APA) are climbing after the company announced that it had sold a 33% stake in its Egyptian business to a Chinese company. WHAT'S NEW: Apache last night announced that it had sold a 33% stake in its Egyptian oil and gas business to China's Sinopec International Petroleum (SNP). Apache noted that it would continue to operate its Egypt upstream oil and gas business. ANALYST REACTION: A number of analysts reacted positively to the news. The transaction is "a game-changer," Deutsche Bank analyst Stephen Richardson wrote in a note to investors. The deal enables Apache to obtain significant value from an asset to which the market had given low value, he believes. As a result of the deal, Egyptian assets constitute only 15% of Apache's production, down from 20% last year, the analyst wrote. He kept a $105 price target and Buy rating on the shares. Similarly, Wells Fargo analyst David Tameron wrote that the deal is positive for Apache's stock, as many on the Street had doubted whether the company could sell its Egyptian assets for a significant amount. Apache received a much higher value for the assets than the Street had expected, and the company can use the funds to reduce its debt or buy back more of its shares, added Tameron. Moreover, the transaction could force those shorting the stock to buy back shares, propelling the shares higher, Tameron believes. He kept an Outperform rating on the stock. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Apache climbed $6.30, or 8%, to $85.
