Targa Resources and Affiliate to Buy Atlas Pipeline and Atlas Energy



Reuters

Oct 13 (Reuters) – U.S. pipeline company Targa Resources Corp said it would buy Atlas Energy LP's midstream assets for $1.9 billion, while its unit Targa Resources Partners LP would buy Atlas Pipeline Partners LP for $4 billion.

Targa Resources Partners said its offer was worth $38.66 per Atlas Pipeline unit in cash and stock and that its current unitholders would own about two-thirds of the combined partnership.

Atlas Energy will spin off its non-midstream assets after which Targa Resources Corp said it would buy the company with its current shareholders owning about 80 percent of the combined company.
