Companies in the news:
TC Energy Corp. — Pipeline and power company TC Energy Corp. is moving to buy out the other unitholders in TC PipeLines, LP, a U.S. master limited partnership it operates, for about US$1.48 billion (C$1.97 billion) in shares. The Calgary-based company says it will offer 0.65 of a share in the parent company for each TC PipeLines unit, the equivalent of US$27.31 per unit based on the TC Energy's Friday closing price and reflecting a 7.5 per cent premium to the 20-day volume weighted average price of TC Pipelines. The buyout of the 74.5 per cent of the partnership it doesn't already own will require TC Energy to issue as many as 35.2 million shares, adding about 3.7 per cent to its 940-million outstanding total.
Calfrac Well Services Ltd. (TSX:CFW). Up three cents or 19.3 per cent to 18.5 cents. Texas-based suitor Wilks Brothers, LLC, is sweetening its hostile takeover offer for Calgary-based Calfrac Well Services Ltd. by raising its bid to 25 cents per share from 18 cents. The bid carries a maximum cash payout of $21.1 million, which Wilks says would cover all of the shareholders other than Matco Investments Ltd. (controlled by Calfrac chairman Ron Mathison) and officers and directors of Calfrac, as well as Wilks' stake of just under 20 per cent. It says those shareholders have said they won't sell to Wilks anyway, so the cash will go to those who will. It says it will guarantee in any case that each shareholder would be able to get at least 18 cents in cash.
