Historical Stock Chart
3 Months : From Apr 2019 to Jul 2019
By Josh Beckerman
Anadarko Petroleum Corp. (APC) has agreed to be sold to Occidental Petroleum Corp. (OXY), a move that was expected after Chevron Corp. (CVX) dropped out of a bidding war.
Occidental will pay $59 in cash and 0.2934 of an Occidental share for each Anadarko share.
Chevron had agreed on April 12 to purchase Anadarko for about $33 billion, but Occidental offered $38 billion on April 24 and then boosted the cash portion of its offer on Sunday.
Anadarko said the sale is expected to close in the second half of the year.
Occidental has obtained committed financing for the entire cash portion.
