Rowan Companies confirms receipt of exchange rate proposal from Ensco

Rowan Companies (RDC) confirmed receipt of a proposal from Ensco (ESV) to increase the exchange ratio for the previously announced all-stock transaction in which Rowan would combine with Ensco. Under the terms of the proposal, Rowan shareholders would receive 2.60 shares of Ensco for each share of Rowan, which represents an approximately 17.4% increase compared to the 2.215 exchange ratio contemplated under the definitive transaction agreement entered into on October 7, 2018. In consultation with its financial and legal advisors, the Rowan Board of Directors will carefully review and consider Ensco's proposal to determine the course of action that the Board believes is in the best interest of Rowan and its shareholders. The Rowan Board will respond to Ensco's proposal in due course following its review.

Wells sees 'rocky times ahead' for Oil Services and Equipment market
Emerging data points suggest "rocky times ahead" for the North American Oil Services and Equipment market in early 2019, Wells Fargo analyst Judson Bailey tells investors in a research note. As oil prices and macro conditions have weakened to end 2018, a number of recent conversations suggest a "quickly deteriorating" outlook for exploration and production budgets, activity levels and pricing over the first few months of 2019, adds the analyst. He believes the case for "much needed consolidation" across the U.S. oilfield services landscape "has never been greater."

Transocean, Ensco price targets lowered at BTIG
BTIG analyst Gregory Lewis lowered his price target on Transocean (RIG) to $14 from $18 and Ensco (ESV) to $8 from $14 as part his broader research note on Offshore Drilling partially titled "Some Coal for the Stocking". The analyst notes that the decline in the oil price has driven offshore drilling stocks down by about 55% quarter-to-date on average, with expectations of activity also being pushed out for the sector. Lewis further states that expectations for an offshore recovery in 2019 were already low, however the market appears to be increasingly more concerned with the possibility of a recession risk. Longer term, Lewis rates both stocks at a Buy and notes some "positive momentum" in the "on-contracted jackup fleet at 314 rigs, which is 3% above the 2018 average and 6% above the 2017 average."
