08:19 EDTSUN, ETE, SUG, SXL, ETPETE to drop down Southern Union assets into ETP-controlled entity
Energy Transfer Equity (ETE) and Energy Transfer Partners (ETP) announced that ETE plans to drop down its interest in Southern Union Company (SUG) into an ETP-controlled entity, which will also include assets to be acquired in the recently announced merger between Sunoco (SUN) and ETP. Concurrent with the closing of the Sunoco merger, ETE will contribute its interest in SUG into an ETP-controlled entity in exchange for a 60% equity interest in the new entity, to be called ETP Holdco Corporation. In conjunction with ETE’s contribution, ETP will contribute its interest in Sunoco to HoldCo and will retain a 40% equity interest in HoldCo. Prior to the contribution of Sunoco to HoldCo, Sunoco’s interests in Sunoco Logistics Partners (SXL) will be transferred to ETP. The transaction has been approved by the boards of directors of ETE’s general partner and ETP’s general partner and will not require the approval of Sunoco’s board. In addition, Energy Transfer has reviewed its plans with all three credit rating agencies and believes that the new structure enhances the overall credit profile of ETE, ETP and SUG and furthers ETP’s commitment to maintaining investment grade credit ratings. The transaction will not require ETE or ETP unitholder approval and no regulatory issues are expected.

07:51 EDTETEEnergy Transfer Equity weakness creates buying opportunity, says Wells Fargo
After meeting with ETE's (ETE) management, Wells Fargo says that, in a worst case scenario, an acquisition of Williams (WMB) would not materially impact ETE's growth. However, the firm thinks the merger could boost the company's results if it can extract commercial synergies from the deal. Wells says that ETE wants to carry out the merger in order to boost its growth in 2019 and beyond. But ETE also believes that it could add $3B-$5B of additional organic growth projects if it acquires Williams, while generating more cash flow from Williams' existing projects, according to the firm.

15:47 EDTETEBankers see Energy Transfer having upper hand for Williams, dealReporter says
Energy industry bankers believe Energy Transfer Equity (ETE) has a good chance of winning its hostile bid for Williams (WMB), with one guessing Williams is likely to sell at a higher offer, but still to Energy Transfer, and another believing Energy Transfer will likely have to tweak the offer terms to change Williams’ mind, said dealReporter, according to contacts. Both bankers referenced in the report said other suitors are likely to emerge, with Kinder Morgan (KMI) and Enterprise Products Partners (EPD) named as being "equally capable" of pursuing a deal.
