C&J Energy forms fifth-largest fracturing fleet with $2.86 bn Nabors deal

HAMILTON, Bermuda -- Nabors Industries has signed a definitive agreement to combine its completion and production services businesses in the U.S. and Canada with C&J Energy Services, Inc.

The transaction will roughly triple the C&J stimulation fleet, which should then rank as the fifth-largest fleet in North America. The combined company will also operate the largest fluids management fleet and the second-largest workover/well-servicing fleet in North America. In addition, prospects for international expansion should be enhanced through a global alliance agreement with Nabors.

Following the completion of this transaction, Nabors will own approximately 53% percent of the combined company, which will be incorporated in Bermuda and listed on the NYSE as C&J Energy Services Ltd. In addition to the 62.54 million shares of the combined company, Nabors will also receive approximately $937 million cash, to be paid from proceeds of a public debt placement by the combined company.

The new C&J Energy Services Ltd. will be managed by the current C&J Energy Services management team, supplemented by Nabors' completion and production services workforce.
