Energy Transfer Partners to sell 49.9% interest in HoldCo. to Blackstone

Energy Transfer Partners (ETP) announced that its wholly owned subsidiaries, Energy Transfer Interstate Holdings, LLC and ET Rover Pipeline LLC, have signed an agreement with funds managed by Blackstone Energy Partners (BX) and Blackstone Capital Partners whereby Blackstone will contribute approximately $1.57B in cash in exchange for a 49.9% interest in HoldCo. HoldCo owns a 65% interest in Rover Pipeline LLC. HoldCo and Rover Pipeline LLC are constructing the Rover Pipeline and will be the operator of the pipeline once in service. Upon completion, the Rover Pipeline will be an approximately 700 mile pipeline designed to transport 3.25 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day from the Marcellus and Utica Shale production areas to markets across the United States as well as into Union Gas Dawn Hub in Ontario, Canada for redistribution back into the United States or into the Canadian market. The Blackstone investment will reimburse ETP for its pro rata share of the construction costs incurred by ETP through the closing date in connection with the Rover Pipeline, specified amounts of future construction costs and certain additional payments to ETP. ETP plans to use the proceeds to pay down debt and help fund its current growth projects, thereby greatly reducing its equity issuances. The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2017, subject to customary closing conditions. Upon closing, HoldCo will be owned 50.1% by Energy Transfer and 49.9% by Blackstone.

Energy Transfer Equity, Energy Transfer Partners upgraded at Bernstein
As noted earlier, Bernstein upgraded Energy Transfer Equity (ETE) and Energy Transfer Partners (ETP) to Outperform from Market Perform. Analyst Jean Ann Salisbury says that the companies are "arguably levered" to three growth areas: Permian, Marcelllus, and ethane volumes. The analyst adds that several "very positive developments" for the companies have occurred since January: the DAPL project proceeded and its "finish line is in sight; progress was made with the Rover project; the DEP approved Mariner East 2; and 73 rigs were added in the Permian, while oil production there rose meaningfully. Target $23 for Energy Transfer Equity and $30 for Energy Transfer Partners.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Qualcomm (QCOM) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Rod Hall saying while more negative news from the Apple (AAPL) royalty suit is likely, "material fundamental upside" exists from the closure of the NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) by the end of this year. The analyst views the deal as highly accretive. Hall also believes Apple ultimately will want to preserve its commercial relationship with Qualcomm. 2. Motorola Solutions (MSI) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Tavis McCourt saying shares look increasingly attractive based on improved demand visibility that is less economically sensitive than many of its peers, and demand catalysts from FirstNet buildouts that are expected to start in 2018. 3. Entegris (ENTG) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Toshiya Hari citing the recent pullback in shares and maintained a $29 price target. 4. Blackstone (BX) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst William Katz saying the company's intentions to raise a $40B infrastructure fund should be a "valuation catalyst." 5. Cree (CREE) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at JMP Securities with analyst Joseph Osha saying he thinks that the company's new CEO could make positive changes at the company.
