06:48 EDTHALHalliburton and Baker Hughes announce additional divestiture proposals
Halliburton (HAL) and Baker Hughes (BHI) announced that the companies will market for sale additional businesses in connection with Halliburton's pending acquisition of Baker Hughes. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, and in order to permit completion of Halliburton's acquisition of Baker Hughes, the following additional businesses are intended to be divested: Halliburton's expandable liner hangers business, which is part of the company's Completion & Production Division; Baker Hughes' core completions business, which includes: packers, flow control tools, subsurface safety systems, intelligent well systems, permanent monitoring, sand control tools and sand control screens; the Baker Hughes sand control business in the Gulf of Mexico, including two pressure pumping vessels; and Baker Hughes' offshore cementing businesses in Australia, Brazil, the Gulf of Mexico, Norway, and the United Kingdom. The combined 2013 revenue associated with all of the businesses intended to be divested was approximately $5.2B. The sale of these businesses will be subject to the negotiation of acceptable terms and conditions for the divestitures, the approval of the divesting company's board, and final approval of the Baker Hughes acquisition by competition enforcement authorities. Halliburton anticipates that the companies will complete the sales of these businesses in the same timeframe as, and the closing of the divestitures would be conditioned on, the closing of the pending Baker Hughes acquisition.

A series of bankruptcies and closures has swept across the oil industry, with dozens of mostly small, privately owned fracking companies at risk, the Wall Street Journal reports. Most companies that help oil and gas explorers drill and frack wells are small, privately owned and fairly young, the report says. The fall in oil prices has played a large role in the failures of many of these companies, the report says. Companies in the space include Key Energy Services (KEG), Basic Energy Services (BAS), Schlumberger (SLB), and Halliburton (HAL). Reference Link

14:14 EDTHALWeatherford spikes after cancelling share offering
Shares of Weatherford (WFT) spiked Tuesday after the company cancelled plans for a public share offering, saying it was "unwilling to sell securities at prices that do not reflect the value" created at the company. Several analysts weighed in on the news, appearing generally bullish on the company but disagreeing on whether Weatherford should focus on its own operations or continue to pursue acquisitions. FOCUS ON FUNDAMENTALS: Jefferies analyst Brad Handler reiterated his Buy rating and $13 price target on Weatherford shares, explaining that the capital increase plans would likely have gone towards buying Halliburton (HAL) drilling assets at an "unattractive" price point. Note that Halliburton is conducting various asset divestitures as part of its planned takeover of Baker Hughes (BHI), with Bloomberg reporting on September 14 that Weatherford had made a bid for the service portion of Halliburton's Sperry Drilling unit. In today's note, Handler acknowledged that the potential acquisition would add some "meaningful" synergies on paper, but he also highlighted the risk of further diluting Weatherford share value. Handler concluded that he is generally more comfortable with a Weatherford "that walks before it runs," adding that he hopes the company "continues to resist the temptation" of large acquisitions amid the current sector downturn. ACQUISITION POTENTIAL: Iberia analyst Robert MacKenzie said he is a buyer of Weatherford shares after Monday's 17% selloff prior to the capital raise cancellation last night. Although an acquisition by Weatherford is less likely without the funds from the public offering, it is still possible, "especially considering that no mention of backing away from their acquisition intent was made in the most recent press release," MacKenzie noted. However, Weatherford's press release announcing the capital raise specifically cited the need to pre-fund potential acquisitions, while its cancellation notice emphasized a focus on core businesses and efficient operations. Nevertheless, MacKenzie argued that Halliburton "remains a motivated seller" and called Weatherford the "most logical" candidate to pick up the company's previously-mentioned assets, saying the potentially transformative acquisition would make "tremendous sense." PRICE ACTION: Weatherford shares are up more than 8.5% to $9.13 in intraday trading after falling throughout yesterday's session on the company's initial decision to pursue a public offering.
