Devon Energy And Crosstex Energy To Create New Midstream Business

Devon Energy Corporation (NYSE:DVN) (“Devon”), Crosstex Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: XTXI) and Crosstex Energy, L.P. (NASDAQ: XTEX) (collectively “Crosstex”) today announced the signing of definitive agreements to combine substantially all of Devon’s U.S. midstream assets with Crosstex’s assets to form a new midstream business. The new business will consist of two publicly traded entities: the Master Limited Partnership and a General Partner entity (the “Master Limited Partnership” and the “General Partner”, collectively “the New Company”). The New Company is expected to have adjusted EBITDA of approximately $700 million in 2014, before synergies. The transaction is expected to be immediately accretive to both Crosstex and Devon. A name for the New Company will be announced prior to the closing of the transaction.

The combination of Devon’s and Crosstex’s extensive midstream systems, including gathering and transportation pipelines, and processing, fractionation and logistics assets, provides the New Company with diversification and scale, along with an enhanced liquids-oriented growth profile. These assets are located in many of North America’s premier oil and gas regions, including the Barnett Shale, Permian Basin, Cana and Arkoma Woodford, Eagle Ford, Haynesville, Gulf Coast, Utica and Marcellus. The New Company will have approximately 7,300 miles of gathering and transportation pipelines, 13 processing plants with 3.3 Bcf/day of net processing capacity, 6 fractionators with 165 MBbl/day of net fractionation capacity, as well as barge and rail terminals, product storage facilities, brine disposal wells and an extensive crude oil trucking fleet.

Under the terms of the definitive agreements, in exchange for a controlling interest in both the new General Partner entity and the Master Limited Partnership, Devon will contribute its equity interest in a newly formed Devon subsidiary (“Devon Holdings”) and $100 million in cash. Devon Holdings will own Devon’s midstream assets in the Barnett Shale in North Texas, the Cana and Arkoma Woodford Shales in Oklahoma and Devon’s interest in Gulf Coast Fractionators in Mt. Belvieu, Texas. The Master Limited Partnership and the General Partner will each own 50% of Devon Holdings. Current stockholders of Crosstex Energy, Inc. will receive one unit in the General Partner entity for each share of Crosstex Energy, Inc. they own, as well as a one-time cash payment at closing of approximately $2.00 per share or $100 million in aggregate. Devon’s contributed assets are valued at $4.8 billion in the transaction.
