20:50 EDTWMB, ACMPWilliams, Williams Partners and Access Midstream announce merger agreement
Williams (WMB), Williams Partners (WPZ), and Access Midstream Partners (ACMP) announced that Williams Partners and Access Midstream Partners have entered into a merger agreement with an approximately $50B total transaction value. Williams owns controlling interests in the two master limited partnerships. Upon completion of the merger, expected to occur by early 2015, the merged MLP is anticipated to be one of the largest and fastest growing MLPs with expected 2015 adjusted EBITDA of approximately $5B, industry-leading 10% to 12% annual limited partner unit distribution growth rate through the 2017 guidance period and with expected strong growth beyond. Distribution coverage is expected to be at or above 1.1x or an aggregate of $1.1B through the 2017 guidance period. Cash distributions for 2015 are expected to total $3.65 per limited partner unit, up 50% and 30% over ACMPís 2014 and 2015 distribution guidance, respectively. The merged MLP expects to pay a regular cash distribution in the first quarter of 2015 in the amount of 85c per unit, up 53% over the ACMP distribution paid in the first quarter of the prior year.Prior to the completion of the merger, ACMP will effect a subdivision of its common units and each public unitholder of ACMP will receive 0.06152 additional ACMP common units for each ACMP common unit they hold. In the aggregate, the public unitholders of ACMP will receive approximately 6.3M new ACMP common units with a value of approximately $381M or approximately $3.74 per public ACMP common unit, based on the closing price of ACMP as of October 24. The 6.3M units, or approximately $381M, represents additional value for ACMP public unitholders versus the original June proposal. Williams agreed to reduce the exchange ratio it would receive in the merger to offset the approximately $3.74 of value provided to the ACMP unitholders in the subdivision of the ACMP common units. Taking into account the impact of the subdivision of the ACMP common units and the terms of the merger agreement, the ACMP conflicts committee concluded the impact of the transactions on the public ACMP unitholders represents an effective exchange ratio of approximately 0.80 ACMP common units for each WPZ common unit outstanding. The merger terms were negotiated, reviewed and approved by the conflicts committees of the boards of directors of the general partner of each partnership. Each of the ACMP Conflicts Committee and the WPZ Conflicts Committee has unanimously approved the merger, the merger agreement and the related transactions. As part of their evaluation process, the conflicts committees retained independent legal and financial advisors and each committee received a fairness opinion from its financial advisor. As a result of the merger, WPZ will become wholly owned by ACMP. The merged MLP will be named Williams Partners and will be based in Tulsa with major offices in Oklahoma City, Houston, Pittsburgh, Salt Lake City and Calgary.

10:27 EDTDDDuPont aims to defend itself 'vigorously' against EC investigation
DuPont (DD) Chemicals & Fluoroproducts president Thierry Vanlancker commented on the European Commission's Statement of Objections. Vanlancker said, "DuPont has complied at all times with applicable laws in its development and commercialization of HFO-1234yf, and we plan to defend vigorously against the commission's allegations and preliminary conclusions. This is one step in a long process, and while it may take years to be resolved, we are confident that the Commission will ultimately conclude that actions taken by DuPont complied with applicable laws. We will fight this every step of the way, as it has no basis in law or fact. We are disappointed in the European Commission and in the process leading up to this point. DuPont and Honeywell (HON)developed HFO-1234yf jointly in response to the European Union's Mobile Air Conditioning Directive. This regulation requires automakers to use a refrigerant with very low global warming potential for vehicle air-conditioning systems. The regulatory timeframe was short considering the significant challenges of developing and commercializing a refrigerant that meets all the automotive industry's needs. This short timeframe was a primary reason for DuPont and Honeywell working jointly to develop HFO-1234yf. Regardless of the Statement, the EU MAC Directive remains in full force today, with all new vehicles required to use a refrigerant with a GWP of under 150 by January 2017."
