- Lufkin Industries Announced It Signed Agreement To Acquire All Assets Of Quinn's Oilfield Supply Ltd
Sep 6, 2011
Lufkin Industries (NASDAQ:LUFK) announced it has signed an Asset Purchase Agreement to acquire substantially all of the assets of Quinn's Oilfield Supply Ltd., including certain affiliates, for about $303 million in cash subject to certain adjustments.
John F. Glick, President and Chief Executive Officer of Lufkin, stated, "The acquisition of Quinn's continues our strategy of expanding our product portfolio in artificial lift systems, while at the same time extending our sales and service network in the increasingly active oil provinces of the United States and Western Canada. The integration of Lufkin's surface beam pump unit with Quinn's downhole rod pump will enhance Lufkin's ability to package complementary products and allow us to better optimize the rod lift system to the benefit of our customers. Quinn's is well positioned to benefit from the large increase in unconventional oil plays as oil shale wells generally transition to artificial lift approximately 18 to 24 months after completion. Quinn's downhole rod pumps and PCPs are also a clear fit with our Automation strategy of integrating downhole devices and instrumentation to monitor and control production."
Lufkin Industries has a potential upside of 62.3% based on a current price of $58.83 and an average consensus analyst price target of $95.5.
