- Williams Cos Affirmed Its Strong Interest In Acquiring Southern Union Company
Aug 17, 2011
Williams Cos (NYSE:WMB) affirmed its strong interest in acquiring Southern Union Company (NYSE:SUG) for $44 per share in cash. The all-cash proposal represents value certainty of $44 per share to Southern Union shareholders, which is a premium of 4% over the implied value of the agreement with Energy Transfer Equity (NYSE:ETE) of $42.32.
Alan Armstrong, president and chief executive officer said, "Forty-four dollars a share, cash, for every shareholder is a superior offer for Southern Union's shareholders. Southern Union's current agreement with Energy Transfer includes illiquid partnership units whose value will be exposed to equity markets in the months until closing and beyond."
The Williams Cos has a potential upside of 25% based on a current price of $28.15 and an average consensus analyst price target of $35.2.
