Salesforce (CRM) and MuleSoft (MULE) have entered into a definitive agreement under which Salesforce will acquire MuleSoft for an enterprise value of approximately $6.5 billion.

Under the terms of the transaction, the MuleSoft acquisition consideration will be composed of $36.00 in cash and 0.0711 shares of Salesforce common stock per MuleSoft Class A and Class B common share, which represents a per share price for MuleSoft common shares of $44.89 based on the closing price of Salesforce common stock on March 19, 2018.

The per share price represents a 36% premium over MuleSoft’s closing share price on March 19, 2018.

Under the terms of the transaction, Salesforce will commence an exchange offer to acquire all of the outstanding shares of MuleSoft.

The transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of Salesforce’s fiscal year 2019, ending July 31, 2018, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions, including the tender by MuleSoft stockholders of shares representing a majority of the MuleSoft common stock voting power, on a one-vote per share basis, and the expiration of the applicable waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act.

General Dynamics (GD) and CSRA (CSRA) announced that they have entered into an amendment to their definitive merger agreement under which General Dynamics will acquire all outstanding shares of CSRA for $41.25 per share in cash, an increase from the prior $40.75 per share offer.

The transaction is now valued at $9.7B, including the assumption of $2.8B in CSRA debt.

In connection with the amended merger agreement, CSRA’s Board of Directors determined that the previously announced unsolicited proposal from CACI International, Inc to acquire CSRA could not reasonably be expected to lead to a Company Superior Proposal.

In reaching that determination, CSRA’s Board of Directors took into account various factors, including among others, the value, certainty of value, certainty of closing and speed to closing of the General Dynamics offer, as amended, as compared to the CACI proposal.

CSRA’s Board of Directors recommends that CSRA stockholders tender their shares of CSRA common stock pursuant to the General Dynamics tender offer. Under the terms of the merger agreement, as amended, on March 5, 2018, General Dynamics commenced a cash tender offer to purchase all of the outstanding shares of CSRA common stock.

Today, the offer price was increased from $40.75 per share to $41.25 per share in cash. The tender offer and any withdrawal rights will expire at 11:59 pm, New York City time, on Monday, April 2, 2018, unless extended.

If the tender offer is completed, the parties expect to complete the merger as soon as practicable thereafter. At the effective time of the merger, CSRA will become a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics.

TPG Pace Energy to acquire oil and gas assets from EnerVest fo $2.66B

TPG Pace Energy (TPGE) announced it has entered into definitive agreements with certain funds managed by EnerVest to acquire the oil and gas assets within EnerVest’s South Texas Division for approximately $2.66B in cash and stock.

As part of the transaction, TPGE and EnerVest are partnering to create Magnolia Oil & Gas Corporation, a new company led by Steve Chazen who will serve as Magnolia’s full-time chairman, president and CEO.

EnerVest will retain a significant ownership stake in Magnolia.

The transaction is subject to approval by the TPGE shareholders and other customary closing conditions, and the new company will trade on the NYSE under a new ticker upon closing, which is expected to occur late in the second quarter of 2018.

The formation of Magnolia creates a large-scale, pure-play South Texas operator with top-tier Eagle Ford and Austin Chalk asset positions with more than 40,000 boe per day of production.

Magnolia will acquire EnerVest’s approximately 360,000 total net acres in South Texas, which consists of approximately 14,000 net acres in one of the most prolific sections of Karnes County and 345,000 net acres in the emerging, high-growth potential Giddings Field.

The acreage position is almost entirely held by production, and the production from the combined asset base is heavily weighted toward oil.

TPGE closed at $9.73.
