The Woodlands, TX based Newfield Exploration Company, an independent energy company, engages in the exploration, development, and production of crude oil, natural gas, and natural gas liquids in the United States. On Nov. 01, 2018, Encana Corporation (Encana) (TSX, NYSE: ECA) and Newfield Exploration Company (Newfield) (NYSE: NFX) announced that they have entered into an agreement whereby Encana will acquire all of the outstanding shares of common stock of Newfield in an all-stock transaction valued at approximately $5.5 billion. Under the terms of the merger agreement, Newfield shareholders will receive 2.6719 Encana common shares for each share of Newfield common stock, or a value of approximately $27.36 per share.
However, given that at least one analyst has set the high target price at $60.00 per share, the investigation concerns whether the offer is unfair to NYSE: NFX stockholders. More specifically, the investigation concerns whether the Newfield Exploration Board of Directors undertook an adequate sales process, adequately shopped the company before entering into the transaction, maximized shareholder value by negotiating the best price, and acted in the shareholders' best interests in connection with the proposed sale.
Shares of Newfield Exploration Company (NYSE: NFX) closed on November 7, 2018 at $21.89 per share.
