Halcón (HK) announced the signing of a definitive agreement with credit funds and accounts managed by affiliates of Apollo Global Management, LLC (APO), which will invest up to $400M in the company's wholly owned subsidiary, HK TMS. Upon closing, HK TMS will hold all of Halcón's acreage in Mississippi and Louisiana that is prospective for the TMS formation. The Company holds 100% of the common shares of HK TMS and is the sole manager of HK TMS. Apollo will contribute $150M in cash consideration for 150,000 of HK TMS preferred shares, and under certain circumstances, may acquire up to an additional 250,000 preferred shares of HK TMS on the same terms. Holders of the HK TMS preferred shares will receive quarterly cash dividends of 8% per annum. In conjunction with the issuance of the preferred shares, HK TMS agreed to assign a 4.0% overriding royalty interest, subject to reduction to 2.0% under certain circumstances, in 75 net wells to be drilled and completed on its TMS acreage. The number of wells subject to the ORRI will increase to the extent that Apollo subscribes for additional preferred shares, with a maximum of 200 net wells subject to such ORRI if Apollo subscribes for the full additional 250,000 preferred shares.

11:14 EDTAPOTronox surges following report of Apollo interest in Chemours
Shares of Tronox (TROX), a manufacturer of titanium-dioxide, jumped in morning trading after Bloomberg reported that Apollo Global Management (APO) was considering a takeover bid for Chemours (CC) in a possible attempt to consolidate other makers of titanium-dioxide, or TiO2. WHAT'S NEW: Apollo Global is mulling the potential of making an offer for Chemours, the former chemical-manufacturing unit of DuPont (DD), and using it as a base to consolidate TiO2 makers, Bloomberg reported, citing people with knowledge of the matter. The private equity firm has held preliminary talks with lenders over a buyout of Chemours, whose market value is roughly $1.4B, the report said. Apollo would then approach other companies, including Tronox, about a tie-up to generate scale and cost efficiencies, the report added. OBSTACLES: Bloomberg noted that several hindrances stand in the way of a possible Apollo Global-Chemours tie-up, including a tax bill for DuPont should Chemours be taken private too soon after the July spinoff. In addition, debt will play a major role if a proposal should happen, since Chemours still owes $4B to DuPont as a result of a payment made to DuPont prior to the spinoff, the report says. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On September 25, Huntsman Corporation (HUN), which also manufactures TiO2, said that it anticipates lower titanium-dioxide selling prices, especially in North America, to affect its third quarter earnings, which the company is scheduled to report on October 27. The company also noted at the time that it sees soft demand in the Asia Pacific region having an impact on its Q3 results as well. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, Tronox shares rallied nearly 20% to $7.92, Chemours rose 1.4%, DuPont gained 1.5%, Huntsman advanced 8.2% and Apollo Global slid 0.7%.
