(Bloomberg) -- Occidental Petroleum Corp. is seeking a buyer to take majority control of Western Midstream Partners LP, the pipeline operator that it’s poised to inherit through its takeover of Anadarko Petroleum Corp., according to people familiar with the matter.Occidental is working with a financial adviser to solicit offers for half of Anadarko’s interest in Western Midstream and Western Midstream’s general partner, or management entity, said the people, who asked to not be identified because the matter isn’t public.The potential buyer of those stakes would also seek to acquire the 45% of Western Midstream that is traded publicly, the people said. That would leave Occidental with a minority stake in Western Midstream, the people said, enabling it to keep financial and operational interest in infrastructure for getting its oil and gas to market.The stakes could draw interest from private equity firms and rival pipeline operators such as Oneok Inc., Enterprise Products Partners LP and Energy Transfer LP, one of the people said. No decision has been made and Occidental could opt to not proceed with a sale, they said.Representatives for Occidental, Anadarko and Enterprise Products declined to comment. Representatives for Oneok and Energy Transfer didn’t respond to requests for comment.Western Midstream rose 2.2% to close at $29.37 in New York trading Monday, giving The Woodlands, Texas-based company a market value of about $13.3 billion.Anadarko owns 55.5 percent of Western Midstream and all of its general partner, according to regulatory filings.Anadarko DealOccidental is poised to acquire Western Midstream after agreeing in May to buy Anadarko for $38 billion, a deal expected to close in the second half of 2019. Occidental has said it would be open to selling Western Midstream after outbidding Chevron Corp. for Anadarko.“We don’t really feel like we have to necessarily own infrastructure to take advantage of it,” Vicki Hollub, Occidental’s chief executive officer, said in a conference call with analysts on May 6. “We would be willing to consider the optimization, monetization, of that sooner rather than later depending on the potential buyer.”Western Midstream controls more than 15,200 miles of pipelines and about six dozen processing and treatment facilities in the Midwestern U.S. and Texas, according to an investor presentation in May. Anadarko formed the company and took it public in 2012 as a so-called master limited partnership, or entity that gets tax breaks in exchange for doling out most of its profits to investors.A potential sale could help Occidental meet its goal of selling $10 billion to $15 billion of assets to pay down debt over the next two years. The company has already agreed to sell Anadarko’s operations in Africa for $8.8 billion to Total SA.To contact the reporters on this story: Kiel Porter in Chicago at firstname.lastname@example.org;Rachel Adams-Heard in Houston at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Liana Baker at firstname.lastname@example.org, ;Simon Casey at email@example.com, Matthew MonksFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
(Bloomberg) -- Capgemini SE said it will acquire Altran Technologies SA in a 3.6 billion-euro ($4.1 billion) deal in order to win more tech clients and keep up with rivals.Paris-based Capgemini is looking to maintain its position as a major IT consultancy in a consolidating industry, as competitors such as Accenture have been building out their sales from digital projects.Capgemini’s shares rose as much as 8% in early morning trading in Paris Tuesday, the most since October 2011. Altran rose 21% to 13.9 euros, trading just below the 14 euros-a-share offer price.Analysts broadly backed the deal. "We think this deal should bring strong value creation and provides scale that can help Capgemini close the valuation gap to larger rivals such as Accenture," said Neil Campling, analyst at Mirabaud.The 14 euros-a-share cash portion of the deal amounts to 3.6 billion euros excluding net debt of 1.4 billion euros, the companies said in a statement Monday. The offer is a 22% premium to Altran’s closing price on Friday.The proposal is a “positive step, as it looks to significantly expand into R&D and engineering, two areas becoming main growth drivers for IT-outsourcing companies,” said Anurag Rana, a Bloomberg Intelligence analyst. “The deal would enable Capgemini to compete more aggressively with Accenture, which generates more than 60% of sales from digital projects.”When combined Capgemini and Altran -- also based in Paris -- will be able to help clients in areas such as cloud computing, the internet of things, 5G, and artificial intelligence software, Capgemini Chief Executive Officer Paul Hermelin said in a statement.In an interview with Bloomberg TV, Hermelin added that Altran adds "beautiful accounts" such as Intel Corp, Cisco Systems Inc. and Microsoft Corp., but added that the group still needed to develop its business in Asia. The combination of the two companies will result in a group with 17 billion euros in annual revenue and more than 250,000 employees.Hermelin expressed confidence on a conference call Monday that there are no antitrust issues associated with the takeover since “the market is very fragmented.”Still, the companies’ businesses do overlap, as they provide some of the same services to similar industries. Capgemini expects the deal to boost earnings per share by 25% by 2023, from 15% before the transition is completed.(Updated with CEO interview.)To contact the reporters on this story: Nico Grant in San Francisco at firstname.lastname@example.org;Francois de Beaupuy in Paris at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Giles Turner at firstname.lastname@example.org, Molly Schuetz, Andrew PollackFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
