Baker Hughes, Goldman Sachs fund to form North America pressure pumping company

Baker Hughes (BHI), CSL Capital, and West Street Energy, a fund managed by the merchant banking division of Goldman Sachs (GS), announced an agreement to create a pure-play North American land pressure pumping company. The new company will provide customers with "leading hydraulic fracturing and cementing services supported by the current Baker Hughes world-class technology portfolio." Under terms of the agreement, Baker Hughes will contribute its North American land cementing and hydraulic fracturing businesses, which comprises assets in the U.S. and Canada. This includes personnel, expertise, technology and infrastructure. CSL Capital will contribute its Allied Energy Services platform, which provides hydraulic fracturing and cementing services on land in North America. Further, CSL and WSEP will together contribute $325M in cash to the new company, of which $175M will be used to strengthen its balance sheet and position it for growth, while the remaining $150M will go to Baker Hughes. CSL and WSEP together will own 53.3% of the new company, and Baker Hughes will retain a 46.7% ownership stake. The new company will operate under the BJ Services brand and will be headquartered in Tomball, Texas. Warren Zemlak, current president and CEO of Allied Energy Services, will serve as CEO of BJ Services, with the balance of the executive team to include "oilfield services veterans." Baker Hughes will provide customary support services to ensure a seamless transition. Access to current Baker Hughes' pressure pumping technology will be provided to the new company through a licensing agreement. Through a strategic collaboration, Baker Hughes will have access to BJ Services' product and service portfolio to continue to provide solutions to customers in the North American land market. The financial results of the Baker Hughes North American land pressure pumping business will continue to be reported as part of Baker Hughes' consolidated financial results through 4Q16. This agreement does not include Baker Hughes' international pressure pumping businesses or its Gulf of Mexico offshore pressure pumping operations, which Baker Hughes will continue to operate.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Chevron (CVX) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Evan Calio saying he believes Chevron is differentiated and has the largest free cash flow inflection in 2017-2019 from project start-ups, primarily Wheatstone and Gorgon, driving production growth to 16%, has the best short-cycle opportunity globally, particularly in the Permian,and has higher oil leverage into a cyclical price recovery. 2. Baker Hughes (BHI) upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at Atlantic Equities. 3. Johnson Controls (JCI) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman with analyst Joe Ritchie saying he believes Johnson's fundamentals are improving, cost savings should support EBIT growth, and valuation is inexpensive. 4. Brocade upgraded to Outperform on potential takeover at RBC Capital with analyst Mitch Steves saying he believes Brocade makes sense as a strategic asset to the right operator and would be mid-single-digit accretive to the acquirer. 5.

Baker Hughes merger looking 'more favorable,' says Wells Fargo
After further analyzing the merger between Baker Hughes (BHI) and GE's (GE) Oil & Gas unit, Wells Fargo has become more upbeat about the new company's outlook. Specifically, it contends that the new company "has a higher percentage of relatively stable aftermarket service revenue than the market appreciates... along with less-volatile revenue streams and higher margins from Digital Solutions and Downstream Technology." The firm is upbeat about the combined company's longer term outlook, and it thinks that the company's cost synergies will come in above expectations. Wells raised its price target range on Baker Hughes to $69-$71 and keeps an Outperform rating on the stock.
