On 12 December 2013, Kerr-McGee was found provisionally liable of fraudulent conveyance relating to the 2006 spin-out of Tronox and its subsequent bankruptcy. The final liability could range between US$5 billion and US$14 billion. Anadarko, which acquired Kerr-McGee in 2006, has stated it will appeal. News of the ruling shaved 6.4% (US$2.6 billion) off Anadarko's market value, compounding a 12% (US$5.9 billion) fall in the two preceding months.
