Energy Takeout Targets


Tap Into Energy Industry Consolidation

We created this motif to provide investors an opportunity to gain exposure to mergers and acquisitions activity among oil and gas companies. In the U.S., these transactions reached a 10-year high of $321.5 billion in 2014[1], setting records in both the number and size of deals. The first half of 2015 saw six deals announced in which the deal price included a median 17 percent premium for the target company. Downward pressure on crude oil prices can help drive an increase in the frequency and value of mergers and acquisitions in this sector. Energy companies with sizeable amounts of borrowing can become targets when prices drop, crimping revenues. If they are cash-strapped but carry a strategic portfolio of assets, they may become attractive to major oil corporations despite the debt of the books. Acquiring companies may see an opportunity to gain new sources of energy more cost effectively by helping target companies satisfy their financial obligations. These distressed assets can also appeal to private equity firms that see opportunities among the oil, gas, and pipeline subsectors alike. See more
