Houston-based oilfield service company National Oilwell Varco Inc. (NOV) will acquire Robbins & Myers in an all-cash transaction valued at approximately $2.5 billion, NOV said Thursday.

The combination of NOV and Robbins & Myers’ manufacturing infrastructure and portfolios of technology will allow NOV to further advance its presence in the oil and gas markets it services, NOV Chairman, President and CEO Pete Miller said in a statement on Thursday.

“Robbins & Myers has many complementary products with those National Oilwell Varco currently offers the industry,” Miller said. “I am particularly enthusiastic about the prospect of incorporating their downhole tools, pumps and valves into National Oilwell Varco Petroleum Services & Supplies and Distribution & Transmission segments.”

The transaction will allow Willis, Texas-based Robbins & Myers “to join forces with an industry leader that will enable its business segments to fully capitalize on their respective strategies, enhance leadership positions in niche applications, and execute growth plans at a faster pace,” said Pete Wallace, president and chief executive officer of Robbins & Myers, in a statement Thursday.

The agreement calls for Robbins & Myers’ shareholders to receive $60/share in cash in return for each of the approximately 42.4 million shares outstanding. The acquisition is expected to close in the fourth quarter of calendar year 2012.

The deal is the latest in a series of acquisitions made by NOV this year as the company seeks to expand its product offering and customer base.

In April of this year, NOV announced an agreement to acquire Schlumberger Limited’s Wilson distribution business segment. NOV completed that acquisition in May.

NOV also unveiled plans to acquire CE Franklin, a Canadian supplier of products and services to the energy industry, for CAD$240 million. Schlumberger was the largest shareholder of CE Franklin.

In February, Subsea 7 and NKT Holding agreed to sell their NKT Flexibles joint venture to NOV for $672 million.

GHS Research sees NOV’s acquisition of Robbins & Myers as positive for both parties, with Robbins & Myers shareholders getting a respectable takeout price in an all-cash deal, GHS analyst Brian Uhlmer said in a research note Thursday.

The agreement for $60/share is a 28 percent premium to Robbins & Myers closing price on Aug. 8 and an approximately 12 percent premium to its 52-week high.

NOV will get the Robbins & Myers business for less than nine times earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, but likely even less as it shaves $50 million to $75 million out of the cost structure.

Rig Job Boom in North Dakota

Posted in Electricians with tags , , , , on November 16, 2010 by Kirstin Harris

The number of oil rigs in North Dakota’s oil patch has practically doubled since the summer months, and as an added bonus, so have the jobs. The increase in number of rigs is attributed in part to the BP oil spill which has companies drilling on land instead of off shore. Another reason for the jump could be the strong crude oil prices of late, along with the weak prices of natural gas.

Each new rig that comes onto the scene brings 40 direct jobs, and 80 indirect jobs, this is great news for those who feel like unemployment is the theme of this year. North Dakota has been going strong, currently there are 4810 active wells as of spring of this year, producing approximately 284,345 barrels of crude oil each day. Making North Dakota the 4th largest oil producer in North America.

If you are an oil rig electrician this can be a great opportunity for you, rigs can’t survive without a good electrician to keep the rig running. If you are looking for work as an oil rig electrician check us out at
