Legacy Reserves +6% as Baird upgrades on "transformative" WPX deal

  • Legacy Reserves (LGCY +6.2%) is upgraded to Outperform from Neutral with a $30 price target at Baird following news of its strategic alliance with WPX Energy in which LGCY will acquire mature gas-producing assets in exchange for $355M in cash and newly created incentive distribution rights.
  • Baird models 20% accretion, but says the real value is in a long-term strategic partnership that is transformative to LGCY's acquisition strategy, and thus its distribution security and growth potential.
