08:58 EDTHUMManaged Care earnings risk low from King vs. Burwell, says Leerink
Leerink believes the Supreme Court decision to the King vs. Burwell case carries low earnings risk for Managed Care companies. The case to determine the legality of Exchange subsidies administered by the Federal Government carries less than 2% and 3% of earnings risk for 2014 and 2015 estimates, respectively, Leerink believes. The firm says Humana (HUM) and Cigna (CI) are currently losing money on Exchanges, and thus could benefit from any Federal Exchange membership loss. Leerink lists Aetna (AET), Centene (CNC), WellPoint (WLP) and Molina Healthcare (MOH) as being most impacted.
08:35 EDTOILTEnterprise Products, Oiltanking Partners enter into merger agreement
Enterprise Products Partners (EPD) and Oiltanking Partners (OILT) announced that Enterprise and Oiltanking Partners have entered into a merger agreement. Under the terms of the merger agreement, Oiltanking Partners would merge with a subsidiary of Enterprise in a unit-for-unit exchange. Unitholders of Oiltanking Partners would receive 1.3 Enterprise common units for each Oiltanking Partners common unit. This exchange ratio represents a 5.6 percent premium to Oiltanking Partners unitholders based on the respective closing prices for Enterprise and Oiltanking Partners common units on September 30, 2014, the day before the merger was originally proposed. Relative to the respective closing prices for Enterprise and Oiltanking Partners common units on November 10, 2014, the day before the parties entered into the merger agreement, the 1.3 exchange ratio represents a 10.4 percent premium to Oiltanking Partners unitholders. Based on the latest cash distribution declared by Enterprise and Oiltanking Partners with respect to the third quarter of 2014, this exchange ratio would result in a 74 percent increase in cash distributions for Oiltanking Partners unitholders. The approval and adoption of the merger agreement require approval by holders of a majority of the outstanding Oiltanking Partners common units. A subsidiary of Enterprise, which will own a sufficient number of Oiltanking Partners common units to approve the merger on behalf of all Oiltanking Partners unitholders, has executed a support agreement with Oiltanking Partners in which it has irrevocably agreed to consent to the merger. This subsidiary will own approximately 54.8 million Oiltanking Partners common units, or approximately 66 percent of the total Oiltanking Partners common units then outstanding, following the conversion of approximately 38.9 million Oiltanking Partners subordinated units into common units. The one-for-one conversion of these subordinated units into common units will occur on November 17, 2014, the business day immediately following payment of the Oiltanking Partners cash distribution scheduled to be paid on November 14, 2014. Approval and adoption of the merger agreement will be submitted to a vote of the unitholders of Oiltanking Partners. Upon completion of the merger, which is expected to occur in early 2015, the total consideration paid by Enterprise for the Oiltanking Partners general partner and related incentive distribution rights and the limited partner units would be approximately $6.0 billion. The merger terms were negotiated, reviewed and approved by the conflicts committee of the board of directors of the general partner of Oiltanking Partners and approved by the board of directors of the general partner of Oiltanking Partners.
