The firm is investigating the proposed agreement between Wisconsin Energy Corp. (NYSE: WEC) and Integrys Energy Group Inc. (NYSE: TEG). It was announced that the companies have entered into a definitive agreement under which Wisconsin Energy will acquire Integrys in a transaction valued at $9.1 billion. Upon completion of the transaction, the combined company will be named WEC Energy Group, Inc. Under the terms of the agreement, valued at approximately $9.1 billion, including debt, Integrys shareholders will only receive a total consideration of $71.47 made up of 74% stock and 26% cash per Integrys share owned.
The combination of Wisconsin Energy and Integrys brings together two strong and well-regarded utility operators with complementary geographic footprints to create a larger, more diverse Midwest electric and natural gas delivery company with the operational expertise, scale and financial resources to meet the region’s future energy needs.
The combined entity is projected to have a regulated rate base of $16.8 billion in 2015, serve more than 4.3 million total gas and electric customers across Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan and Minnesota, and operate nearly 71,000 miles of electric distribution lines and more than 44,000 miles of gas transmission and distribution lines. The combination brings together Wisconsin Energy’s top-performing electric and gas utility – We Energies – and Integrys’ strong electric and gas utilities – Wisconsin Public Service, Peoples Gas, North Shore Gas, Minnesota Energy Resources and Michigan Gas Utilities.
