Targa Resources Corp. (TRGP)

- NYSE

    • Energy MLPs are trading with mixed results, which is not in line with an analyst's expectation that several names in the space may be outperformers today after Williams Cos. (WMB +6.2%) agreed to buy Williams Partners (WPZ +22.7%).
    • In an earlier note to investors, Credit Suisse named Plains GP Holdings (PAGP +1%), Targa Resources (TRGP +1.1%), NuStar GP Holdings (NSH -0.1%) and Western Gas Equity (WGP -0.7%) as MLPs that could climb on the news.
    • Meanwhile, Wells Fargo says the deal is positive, since it reduces the WMB's cost of capital, will immediately increase its profits, and enhances its dividend growth outlook.
    • Among major energy MLPs: EPD -1.5%, ETP +0.9%, PAA +0.2%, EEP -0.2%, MWE +2.2%, MMP -0.3%.

    • Targa Resources Partners (NYSE:NGLS) and Targa Resources (NYSE:TRGP) agree to acquire Atlas Pipeline Partners (NYSE:APL) and Atlas Energy (NYSE:ATLS) for $5.8B, including $1.8B of debt.
    • Prior to Targa's acquisition of ATLS, ATLS will spin off its non-midstream assets; after giving effect to the spinoff, ATLS assets will solely comprise its general partner and incentive distribution rights interests in APL and 5.8M APL common units.
    • The combination creates one of the largest diversified MLPs on an enterprise value basis, bringing Atlas' positions in the Woodford/SCOOP, Mississippi Lime and Eagle Ford and additional Permian assets to Targa's existing Permian, Bakken, Barnett and Louisiana Gulf coast operations.
    • ATLS +14.1%, APL +12.8% premarket.
