Statoil acquires a 12% equity stake in Lundin for US$540 million


Statoil acquires a 12% equity stake in Lundin for US$540 million

Report summary

Statoil has acquired an 11.93% equity stake in Stokholm-listed Lundin Petroleum. No new equity was issued; the stock was acquired in the open market. The acquisition adds to Statoil's core portfolio in Norway at what could be a low point in the price cycle. With the Lundin family still controlling 31.4% of the company, the move effectively heads-off any threat of a rival bid for Lundin, and gives Statoil a position from which it might build a bigger stake over time. The deal signals Statoil's confidence in the Johan Sverdrup project, which is a crucial project for both companies. The deal may also help align interests in the Barents, where a joint development between Statoil's Johan Castberg and Lundin's Gohta and Alta discoveries could improve the economics of both areas.
