Chevron to Buy Hess For $53 Billion


Chevron Corporation (NYSE:CVX) announced its plans to purchase Hess Corporation (NYSE:HES) in an all-stock deal, with a valuation of $53 billion or $171 per share. Hess shareholders are set to get 1.0250 Chevron shares for every Hess share they own, bringing the overall value, including debts, to $60 billion.
This move will bolster Chevron’s asset base, especially spotlighting the Stabroek block in Guyana, known for its significant cash margins and eco-friendly operations. This inclusion is anticipated to spur Chevron’s production growth throughout the upcoming decade.
Mike Wirth, Chevron’s Chairman and CEO, remarked that the merger would fortify Chevron’s performance in the long run by incorporating top-tier assets.
Both companies’ Boards of Directors have given their unanimous consent to the transaction, aiming for its completion by mid-2024.
