Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 5/9/2019, Location: North America

Anadarko Petroleum Corporation has entered into a definitive merger agreement with Occidental Petroleum Corporation under which Occidental will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Anadarko for consideration consisting of $59.00 in cash and 0.2934 of a share of Occidental common stock per share of Anadarko common stock.

Anadarko also announced that prior to entering into the merger agreement with Occidental, the Company terminated its previously announced merger agreement with Chevron Corporation. In accordance with the terms of that agreement, Anadarko has paid a termination fee of $1 billion to Chevron.

Al Walker, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Anadarko, commented, "We are pleased to have reached an agreement with Occidental that delivers significant, near-term value to our shareholders. Anadarko's employees have strategically assembled a premier portfolio of world-class assets, and this transaction would not have been possible without our board's leadership over the past several months. We are proud of the substantial premium we have delivered to our shareholders and look forward to working with Occidental to ensure a smooth transition."

The transaction is expected to close in the second half of 2019, subject to approval by Anadarko shareholders, regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions. Occidental has obtained committed financing for the entire cash portion of the aggregate transaction, and completion of the transaction will not require or be conditioned upon the receipt of any vote or other approval by Occidental's stockholders.

Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC, Evercore, and Jefferies LLC are acting as financial advisors to Anadarko. Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz is acting as legal advisor to Anadarko.
