EOG Resources buys Yates Petroleum for US$2.5 billion

Report summary

The US$2.5 billion deal consideration is below our base-case valuation. And we believe our conservative base-case assumptions (e.g., type-well IP rates lower than EOG's latest results; no value attributed to 76% of the acreage) skews our valuation's risk profile to the upside. Deal metrics that exclude our modelling assumptions also suggest that the deal consideration was inexpensive: relative to comparable Permian deals in 2016, EOG paid 65% less on a dollar-per-acre basis for a Delaware position that is similar in quality and significantly higher in scalability.
