Blackstone announced the commencement of the investment period for its second energy-focused private equity fund, Blackstone Energy Partners II, with total commitments of $4.5B. BEP II received significant interest from both existing and new investors, with demand well surpassing the fundís $4.5B hard cap. Investors in the fund include a diverse group of U.S. state pension funds, corporate pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, insurance companies, endowments, foundations and family offices. Like its predecessor fund BEP I, a $2.4B fund that had its final close in September 2012, BEP II will invest in control-oriented equity and equity-linked interests in companies, assets and development projects in the energy and natural resources sector on a global basis. To date, Blackstoneís energy-focused private equity team of professionals has deployed over $8B in this strategy. Blackstone's $16B diversified global private equity fund will continue to invest alongside BEP II in energy transactions on a 50/50 basis.

07:02 EDTBXRentech secures additional loan commitment of up to $63M from GSO Capital
Rentech, Inc. (RTK) announced that GSO Capital Partners LP, the credit investment arm of Blackstone (BX), has increased its credit facility for Rentech by up to $63M. The majority of the proceeds from this new facility are expected to fund completion of Rentechís Canadian wood pellet projects through positive cash flow. Rentech now estimates the cost to complete the construction of its Canadian wood pellet projects to be $125M-$130M. Rentech expects that the new term loan, together with its other cash resources, will be sufficient to fund its Atikokan and Wawa pellet projects until they have been commissioned and begin to generate positive cash flow. Rentech currently estimates that the cost to acquire and construct the two plants will be $125M-$130M, up from $105M. The majority of the increase is due to delays in construction and higher labor costs for installation of electrical and mechanical components. Rentech expects that working capital and the cost to commission the plants will add approximately $6 to $10 million to the estimated total project cost. Rentech does not expect the plants to generate positive EBITDA or cash flow for the year 2015. Annual stabilized EBITDA projected for both plants remains in line with previous guidance of C$17M-C$20M.
06:59 EDTRIGTransocean price target lowered to $6 from $16 at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank lowered its price target for Transocean shares to $6 after the company announced an 80% dividend reduction and the departure of its CEO. Deutsche says reducing the dividend frees up about $800M per year and that the move will likely be viewed positively since an elimination was a potential outcome. The firm, however, expects the company's free cash flow to remain negative for the "foreseeable future" and reiterates a Sell rating on the stock. Shares of the offshore driller are trading up 55c to $19.60 in pre-market trading.
