10:03 EDTCHKChesapeake PRB swap, Utica buyback positive, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo views the Powder River Basin asset swap that Chesapeake executed and its plans to repurchase preferred shares of its Utica subsidiary as positives for the company, as the swap provides it with a more concentrated, high-quality acreage position and the repurchase simplifies its capital structure. However, the firm noted that the company's Q2 pricing update brings down its EPS estimate for the quarter by 4c. Wells maintains its Market Perform rating on the stock.

08:12 EDTCHKChesapeake agrees to repurchase all outstanding preferred shares of CHK Utica
Chesapeake also announced that it has agreed in principle to repurchase all of the outstanding preferred shares of its unrestricted subsidiary, CHK Utica from third-party preferred shareholders. Under the agreement, Chesapeake will pay approximately $1.26B to repurchase 1,060,000 preferred shares of CHK Utica. The proposed transaction, which is expected to close today, will retire Chesapeake’s highest cost leverage instrument and eliminate approximately $75M in annual cash dividend payments to third-party preferred shareholders. Chesapeake plans to fund the cash portion of the RKI acreage exchange and the repurchase of the CHK Utica preferred shares with available liquidity, including nearly $1.5B of unrestricted cash held on its balance sheet as of June 30. Chesapeake continues to refine its portfolio to focus on assets that best align with the company’s strategy of profitable growth from captured resources and expects to close additional sales of noncore assets, including non-E&P assets, by the end of 2014.
