One person close to the hedge funds said the investors believe consolidation makes sense but are unsure "that this particular consolidation makes sense." Reference Link

18:21 EDTWMBWilliams to explore strategic alternatives after unsolicited proposal
Williams (WMB) announced that its board of directors has authorized a process to explore a "range" of strategic alternatives -- including a merger, a sale of Williams, or continuing the existing operating plan -- following receipt of an unsolicited proposal to acquire Williams in an all-equity transaction at a stated per share price of $64. The unsolicited proposal was contingent on the termination of Williamsí pending acquisition of Williams Partners (WPZ). With the assistance of its outside financial and legal advisors, the Williams board considered the unsolicited proposal and determined that it "significantly" undervalues Williams and would not deliver value commensurate with what Williams expects to achieve on a standalone basis and through other growth initiatives, including the pending acquisition of Williams Partners. During its strategic review process, Williams will continue to work towards the completion of the Partners transaction.
