Occidental to buy Anadarko

Report summary

Occidental won the race for Anadarko after Chevron opted not to counter Oxy's US$76 per share offer. Occidental had worked hard for the win, agreeing external financing and a contingent sale of Anadarko's African assets, to improve its proposition and alleviate Anadarko's initial concerns. Chevron's committment to capital discipline meant Occidental was able to clinch the deal at a price that still looks good value. The deal will be a game changer for Occidental.
