TGE Stock Soars On Take Private Offer

As mentioned above, Tallgrass Energy is making a strong run for the top this morning after announcing that it received an offer. In a press release issued late yesterday, the company said that it received a non-binding preliminary proposal letter from Blackstone Infrastructure Partners.

The letter outlined an offer to acquire all of the outstanding shares of the company. The offer provided a strong, 35.9% premium at $19.50 per share. The premium represented by the offer is 12% over the stocks 30 day weighted average price.

As of now, Blackstone and other affiliates associated with the deal own an interest of 44.2% in TGE.

Something That’s Important To Keep In Mind

First and foremost, while the offer was made, it is only a preliminary offer. As such, there have been no binding agreements signed and no deal is official as of yet.

Moving forward, TGE will create a committee to review the offer from a non-biased perspective. From there, negotiations are likely to commence. So, While there has been an offer made, a binding agreement is still a bit away.
