11:21 EDTSEMGSemGroup higher after Sandell urges company to explore strategic alternatives
Earlier today, Sandell Asset Management, a shareholder of SemGroup Corporation, announced it had publicly released a letter to the Board of Directors of the company requesting that the Board review strategic alternatives including the exploration of the sale of SEMG, "in light of what, we believe, is a gross undervaluation of the company’s shares in the public market and growing M&A activity in the sector." Tom Sandell, CEO of Sandell, stated: “Although we believe management and the Board of SemGroup have been respectable stewards of the company over the past few years, we simply believe that in this environment the best outcome for shareholders is for the company to sell itself. As long time investors in the North American energy infrastructure industry and SEMG’s shares, we firmly believe there are a number of potential acquirers for the entire company at significant premiums to current trading levels given its highly valued asset base and pipeline of exciting growth opportunities.” Mr. Sandell continued, “Our analysis has led us to conclude that this market environment, driven by extreme energy price volatility, has disproportionately affected SEMG’s share price due to its smaller equity market capitalization, lower liquidity profile and unwieldy mix of assets...We believe that this adverse dynamic will persist for longer than most expect given the seismic changes occurring in global energy markets.” Mr. Sandell added, “In our view, given the availability of cheap debt and equity capital, a takeout price of up to $104/share for SEMG would easily be justified. This price would yield modest accretion to cash available to pay dividends in Year 1 for the acquirer, and provide significant upside with the maturation of SEMG’s asset base, the deployment of growth capital throughout SEMG’s footprint and the realization of significant balance sheet, tax and operational synergies.” Shares of SemGroup are higher by almost 8% to $68.97 in late morning trading.

06:42 EDTBCSECB most likely will unveil bond buying program, NY Times says
The European Central Bank is "all but certain" to announce at its next meeting that it will buy government bonds, according to The New York Times. But the ECB may announce that it will buy bonds but say that it will only provide details about the program in March, some believe, the newspaper reported. Some economists contend that the initiative could be a case of "too little, too late," The Times added. Publicly traded European banks include Banco Santander (SAN), Barclays (BCS), Credit Suisse (CS), Deutsche Bank (DB), HSBC (HSBC), ING Groep (ING), Lloyds Banking (LYG), RBS (RBS) and UBS (UBS).
