Anadarko confirms receipt of unsolicited proposal from Occidental

Anadarko Petroleum Corporation (APC) confirmed that it has received an unsolicited proposal from Occidental Petroleum Corporation (OXY) on April 24, under which Anadarko shareholders would receive $38.00 in cash and 0.6094 shares of Occidental common stock for each share of Anadarko common stock. As previously announced on April 12, 2019, following unanimous approval from the company's board of directors, Anadarko entered into a definitive agreement with Chevron Corporation (CVX) under which a wholly owned subsidiary of Chevron would acquire all of the outstanding shares of Anadarko in a stock and cash transaction valued at $33B, or $65 per share. In accordance with the terms of the Chevron Merger Agreement, and in consultation with its financial and legal advisors, Anadarko's board of directors will carefully review Occidental's proposal to determine the course of action that it believes is in the best interest of the Company's stockholders. The Anadarko board has not made any determination as to whether Occidental's proposal constitutes, or could reasonably be expected to result in, a superior proposal under the terms of the Chevron Merger Agreement. The Anadarko board expects to respond to Occidental's proposal upon completing its review, and accordingly reaffirms its existing recommendation of the transaction with Chevron at this time. Evercore and Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC are acting as financial advisors to Anadarko. Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz is acting as legal advisor to Anadarko.

Occidental's raised offer for Anadarko 'not entirely surprising,' says JPMorgan
Occidental Petroleum (OXY) made a $76 per share offer this morning for Anadarko (APC), which is "not entirely surprising," JPMorgan analyst Phil Gresh tells investors in a research note, adding that the new tidbits were the magnitude of synergies that Occidental proposed, which was materially higher than Chevron's (CVX), and Occidental's corresponding asset sale plan of $10B-15B. Gresh believes the merits of this transaction hinge entirely on the execution of the large synergy number being proposed, but also says he would not be surprised if Chevron raised its $65 per share bid for Anadarko and correspondingly raised its synergy target. The analyst maintains a Neutral rating and $74 price target on Occidental Petroleum.

Raymond James says Occidental bid 'unambiguously bad' in near-term for stock
After Occidental (OXY) revealed that it has sent a letter to the Anadarko (APC) board offering to outbid Chevron (CVX) with a proposed buyout of $76 per share in cash and stock, Raymond James analyst Pavel Molchanov called this "unambiguously bad news" for Occidental shares in the very near term, including today's trading. By setting up "a virtually unprecedented scenario" of a true bidding war in the E&P industry, Occidental has put its shareholders "in a difficult position," added the analyst, who said this is a hard situation to call but he thinks Chevron is more likely to emerge as the winning suitor in the end.

Occidental Petroleum downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Mizuho
Mizuho analyst Paul Sankey downgraded Occidental Petroleum (OPC) to Neutral from Buy and lowered his price target for the shares to $70 from $83. The analyst says reports of Occidental bidding for Anadark (APC) are "well outside" his "prior understanding of company strategy." A bid for Anadarko would imply either a total change in strategy or a need for free cash flow that would be provided by Anadarko on the part of Occidental, Sankey tells investors in a research note. The latter would imply Occidental's future "dividend growth or even dividend cover is not as strong as we had assumed," he adds.

Chevron shares should be bought on Anadarko deal weakness, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Devin McDermott said he believes that Chevron's (CVX) agreement to acquire Anadarko (APC) is a "win-win for shareholders of both companies" given what he views as "clear strategic benefits and attractive accretion." Chevron was able to acquire the company "that offers the best strategic fit at what could prove to be the best relative valuation" ahead of what could be the start of a broader round of consolidation, contends McDermott, who recommends being a buyer of Chevron shares on the weakness seen after the deal was announced. In terms of who may be next, McDermott said he thinks Pioneer Natural (PXD), Concho Resources (CXO) and Parsley Energy (PE) could be potential targets for other oil majors.
