Canada’s Baytex Energy nears $2.5 bln deal for U.S. peer Ranger Oil 

Reuters was first to report that Canadian oil and gas producer Baytex Energy Corp was nearing a deal to acquire U.S. peer Ranger Oil Corp for around $2.5 billion including debt. The deal, which was announced the following day, significantly boosts Baytex’s presence in South Texas’ Eagle Ford shale basin, which currently represents around 30% of its total production. 

Market Impact

Calgary, Alberta-based Baytex will pay a mixture of cash and stock to buy Ranger at a small premium to its current market value of $1.8 billion. It will also assume Ranger’s debt pile, which stood at $603 million as of Sept. 30. Baytex’s deal adds to the run of Canadian energy operators seeking to boost the amount they produce south of the border.
