Report summary

Woodside approached Oil Search with an all share merger proposal. The offer for Oil Search equated to A$7.65/share valuing Oil Search at US$10.4 billion. This represented a 14% premium to the previous day's closing price. The move was about LNG portfolio optimisation in an oversupplied and softening market rather than financial distress in a low oil price environment.
