EQT Corporation to acquire Rice Energy for $6.7B in cash and stock deal

EQT Corporation (EQT) and Rice Energy (RICE) announce that they have entered into a definitive merger agreement under which EQT will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Rice common stock for total consideration of approximately $6.7B - consisting of 0.37 shares of EQT common stock and $5.30 in cash per share of Rice common stock. EQT will also assume or refinance approximately $1.5B of net debt and preferred equity. The transaction is expected to close in Q4 subject to customary closing conditions. As the vast majority of the acquired acreage is contiguous with EQT's existing acreage position, EQT anticipates a 50% increase in average lateral lengths for future wells located in Greene and Washington Counties in Pennsylvania. This same land synergy also complements the infrastructure footprint of EQT Midstream Partners, (EQM), where growth opportunities are expected through drop-downs and additional organic projects. Already a leading producer in the Appalachian Basin, this acquisition will make EQT the largest natural gas producer in the United States. EQT will also obtain Rice's midstream assets, including a 92% interest in Rice Midstream GP Holdings LP, which owns 100% of the general partner incentive distribution rights and 28% of the limited partner interests in Rice Midstream Partners LP and the retained midstream assets currently held at Rice. The retained midstream assets, which EQT intends to sell to EQM in the future through drop-down transactions, are expected to generate approximately $130M of EBITDA in 2018. The boards of directors of both companies have unanimously approved the transaction. Completion of the transaction is subject to the approval of both EQT and Rice shareholders, as well as certain customary regulatory and other closing conditions.

EQT Corporation weakness overdone, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Karl Chalabala says that the decline in EQT's stock following its Q2 results are overdone. Despite the company's lower than expected quarterly production guidance, the analyst raised his estimates, citing "higher well productivity from increased type curves and forward gas strips continuing to grind higher." He raised his price target on the stock to $81 from $63 and keeps a Buy rating on the shares.
