06:18 EDTCHKChesapeake board of directors approves spin-off of oilfield services business
Chesapeake Energy Corporation announced that the spin-off of Chesapeake's oilfield services business into a stand-alone, publicly traded company called Seventy Seven Energy has been approved by the Chesapeake Board of Directors. The two companies will be separated through the distribution of SSE common stock to holders of Chesapeake common stock on a pro rata basis. Chesapeake shareholders will receive one share of SSE common stock for every 14 shares of Chesapeake common stock held at the close of business on the record date of June 19. No fractional shares of SSE common stock will be issued; however, shareholders entitled to receive a fractional share of SSE common stock in the distribution will instead receive the cash value of that fractional share. Subject to the satisfaction of the conditions to closing, the distribution is expected to occur following the close of business on June 30. Following the distribution of SSE common stock, SSE will be an independent, publicly traded company, and Chesapeake will retain no equity interest. SSE has applied to list its common stock on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "SSE." Chesapeake has received a private letter ruling from the Internal Revenue Service and expects to obtain an opinion of tax counsel, in each case, substantially to the effect that, based on certain facts, assumptions, representations, and covenants, and subject to certain limitations set forth therein, for U.S. federal income tax purposes, the distribution of SSE common stock generally will be tax-free to U.S. holders of Chesapeake common stock, other than with respect to any cash received in lieu of fractional share interests, which generally will be taxable to such holders as capital gain. Upon completion of the spin-off, Jerry L. Winchester and Cary D. Baetz will remain as CEO and CFO , respectively, of SSE.
