Schlumberger Limited (SLB) and Cameron (CAM) jointly announced a definitive merger agreement in which the companies will combine in a stock and cash transaction. The agreement was unanimously approved by the boards of both companies. Under the terms of the agreement, Cameron shareholders will receive 0.716 shares of Schlumberger common stock and a cash payment of $14.44 in exchange for each Cameron share. Based on the closing stock prices of both companies on August 25, the agreement places a value of $66.36 per Cameron share, representing a 37.0% premium to Cameron's 20-day volume weighted average price of $48.45 per share, and a 56.3% premium to Cameron's most recent closing stock price of $42.47 per share. Upon closing, Cameron shareholders will own approximately 10% of Schlumberger's outstanding shares of common stock. The total transaction has a value of $14.8B as of August 25. Schlumberger expects to realize pretax synergies of approximately $300M-$600M in the first and second year, respectively. Initially, the synergies are primarily related to reducing operating costs, streamlining supply chains, and improving manufacturing processes, with a growing component of revenue synergies in the second year and beyond. Schlumberger also expects the combination to be accretive to EPS by the end of the first year after closing. The transaction combines two complementary technology portfolios into a "pore-to-pipeline" products and services offering to the global oil and gas industry. On a pro forma basis, the combined company had 2014 revenues of $59B. The transaction is subject to Cameron shareholders' approval, regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions. It is anticipated that the closing of the transaction will occur in Q1 of 2016.

07:42 EDTFNew Street-high target of $465 gives Tesla shares a charge
Shares of Tesla Motors (TSLA) are jumping after Morgan Stanley boosted its price target by $185 to $465, a new high among Wall Street analysts. The company is positioned to dominate as car sales shift to robot-driven and shared vehicles, the firm argues. SELLING MILES: Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas raised his price target for Tesla Motors to $465 from $280, well above Friday's closing price of $243.15. Today, ten trillion vehicle miles are driven annually, with almost all of them delivered by "companies practicing a 100-year-old business model of human-driven, privately owned, internal-combustion vehicles," Jonas tells investors in a research note. General Motors (GM), Ford (F), Toyota (TM) and Honda (HMC) are among the publicly traded traditional carmakers. The market of selling cars is going through some fundamental changes, argues Jonas. He believes Tesla is "uniquely positioned" to dominate given its expertise in autonomous technology and networked machine learning. An app-based, on-demand mobility service could more than triple Tesla's potential revenues by 2029, the analyst estimates. He expects Tesla over the next 18 months to roll out formalized business plans on shared mobility, allowing the electric vehicle maker to sell miles in addition to cars. His new price target of $465 reflects Tesla's potential to lead the revolution of the shared mobility public transportation hyper-structure and more confidence around the commercial viability of Tesla Energy. ROBOT-DRIVEN: Jonas expects nearly all car sales to eventually shift from human-driven, individually-owned cars to robot-driven and shared cars. If Tesla wants to succeed on its mission of accelerating the world's transition to sustainable transport, the move to a shared mobility model is critical, he argues. All of Tesla's cars are electric, connected, and able to "learn" through over-the- air firmware updates at any time, which no other established automaker can claim today, Jonas writes. MARKET REACTION: Investors are buying into what Jonas is arguing. Shares of Tesla are up 5%, or $13.10, to $256.25 in pre-market trading. Over the past three months through Friday's close, the stock is down 2%.
