ANDV shareholders will have the option to choose 1.87 shares of MPC stock, or $152.27 in cash subject to a proration mechanism that will result in 15% of ANDV’s fully diluted shares receiving cash consideration. The stock portion of the consideration received by Andeavor’s shareholders is expected to be tax-free. This represents a premium of 24.4% to ANDV’s closing price on April 27, 2018. MPC and ANDV shareholders will own approximately 66% and 34% of the combined company, respectively.

Heminger said he expects the combined company to generate approximately $1 billion of tangible annual run-rate synergies within the first three-years. “Given the confidence in the robust cash flow expected to be generated by the combined business, our board also authorized an incremental $5 billion of share repurchases,” Heminger said.
