Schlumberger acquires Cameron

Oilfield services giant Schlumberger and Cameron revealed a definitive merger agreement in which the companies will combine in a stock and cash transaction. 

The two companies said in a joint statement on Wednesday that the total transaction is valued at $14.8 billion.

Under the terms of the agreement, Cameron shareholders will receive 0.716 shares of Schlumberger common stock and a cash payment of $14.44 in exchange for each Cameron share.

It is anticipated that the closing of the transaction will occur in the first quarter of 2016.
