10:57 EDTECACanadian energy stocks rise after Talisman acquired by Repsol
Shares of Canadian energy companies are higher this morning after Repsol (REPYY) announced plans to buy Talisman Energy (TLM) for $8 per share in cash. WHAT'S NEW: Canada-based Talisman announced that it has agreed to be acquired by Spain's Repsol in a transaction valued at approximately $13B, including debt. Under the terms of the agreement, Repsol will buy all outstanding common shares of Talisman for $8 per share in cash. Also under the deal, Talisman will pay aggregate cash dividends of 18c per common share prior to closing. The Talisman board is recommending shareholders accept the deal at a special meeting to be held in mid-February 2015. The transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of 2015, Talisman said. Talisman Chairman Chuck Williamson noted that the deal will create "significant and immediate value" for the company's investors. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Repsol first explored a bid for Talisman in July, but talks slowed in late August. Earlier this month, Bloomberg reported the companies revived talks and The Wall Street Journal said "talks moved quickly" from there. Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, which initially considered buying parts of Talisman, was also weighing a bid for the whole company, according to Bloomberg, citing people with knowledge of the matter. ANALYST REACTION: Talisman Energy was downgraded this morning to Market Perform from Outperform at Bernstein. PRICE ACTION: Talisman Energy is up $2.43, or 47.5%, to $7.55 in morning trading and Repsol shares trading in New York are down 1.5% to $19.15. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other Canadian energy companies traded in New York include Encana (ECA), Suncor (SU), Canadian Natural Resource (CNQ) and Imperial Oil (IMO). Of note, Encana this morning announced a 2015 capital program of $2.7B-$2.9B, with about 80% directed to the Montney, Duvernay, Eagle Ford and Permian, its highest margin growth plays. The company expects total cash flow between $2.5B-$2.7B, reflecting the impact of higher margin production and continued cost efficiencies, partially offset by anticipated lower commodity prices. In morning trading, Encana shares rose 9.2% to $12.69, Suncor gained 5.3% to $28.33, Canadian Natural Resource added 4.8% to $28.62 and Imperial Oil advanced 2.5% to $40.88.
06:04 EDTECAEncana announces $2.7B$2.9B 2015 capital program
Encana announced a highly focused 2015 capital program of $2.7B-.$2.9B, with approximately 80% directed to four of its highest margin growth plays; the Montney, Duvernay, Eagle Ford and Permian. Encana expects to generate approximately 75% of its 2015 cash flow from oil and liquids production. The company estimates total liquids production will grow approximately 70% compared to 2014 to between 140,000 and 160,000 barrels per day, or bbls/d, and anticipates overall production of between 405,000 and 440,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe/d). Encana expects total cash flow between $2.5B-$2.7B, reflecting the impact of higher margin production and continued cost efficiencies, partially offset by anticipated lower commodity prices. Encana is committed to protecting its balance sheet through a prudent capital investment program. The company's 2015 capital program is based on assumptions of $70 WTI oil prices and NYMEX natural gas prices of $4 per MMBtu. In addition, the company expects to generate net proceeds of around $800M in the Q1 of FY15 through the completion of the previously announced divestiture of the majority of its Clearwater assets and other anticipated transactions.
