A Big Merger Arbitrage Yields an (Almost) Assured Attractive Gain
The recent proposal by Exxon Mobil to acquire with Exxon stock XTO Energy, a growing natural gas company, presents a chance to buy Exxon Mobil at a discount.
The principal risk in any merger arbitrage is that the merger will collapse or be delayed. Such problems usually arise from difficulties obtaining approval from government regulators. In this case, Exxon is the world's largest privately owned energy company, requiring antitrust clearance in many jurisdictions. A regiment of antitrust lawyers is already at work and I expect these concerns have been anticipated to a substantial degree.
One unusual complication is a provision that permits Exxon to pull out of the deal if Congress passes recently introduced legislation that restricts drilling techniques used by XTO and other companies to extract gas from difficult shale fields by hydraulic fracturing or "fracting." This process involves pumping water or other chemicals at high pressure into underground fields. This process has been in use in this country for decades but expanded exploration efforts in recent years have raised concerns of possible ground water contamination.
The proposed legislation would close a loophole in a 2005 energy bill that exempted "fracking" from federal regulation. I believe it unlikely that a busy Congress will pass this bill before the closing of this merger. Even if it does, Exxon would probably not view its passage alone without additional burdensome regulations as constituting a sufficient regulatory burden to stop the merger.
Until closing, XTO's stock price will trade in harmony with Exxon's. The merger spread will ultimately narrow with stockholder approvals and widen on news or rumors of problems. XTO traded at $70 last year and Exxon might even increase its bid in the event of delays. XTO yields 1%, Exxon 2.4%. This is an attractive opportunity to enhance portfolios with a quite sizable blue chip stock at a slight but attractive discount.
