In September Ocean Rig UDW (NASDAQ:ORIG), one of our two offshore drilling rig company investments, agreed to be acquired by larger industry peer Transocean Ltd at an approximate 30% premium to Ocean Rig's pre-announcement trading price. Although we believe the price paid was ultimately on the cheaper side, much of the price paid is in the form of Transocean common stock, which could provide additional upside should one want to continue to hold shares of Transocean. Ocean Rig is one of two oil service companies we purchased following their reemergence as publicly traded equities following their respective bankruptcy processes.

Transocean Ltd (RIGN.S), a top supplier of drilling vessels, said last month that rates for its new high-spec vessels in the North Sea are now fetching $300,000 a day. Transocean last year acquired rival Songa Offshore SE [SONG.UL] and recently agreed to buy deep water expert Ocean Rig UDW (ORIG.O) for $2.7 billion.
Offshore drilling, the worst hit during the 2014 slide in oil prices, is set to benefit as recent auctions and discoveries worldwide indicate a rising need for specialised drill ships. "We're starting to see a broad pick up in nearly all geographies and all market segments," Ensco Chief Executive Officer Carl Trowell told analysts on a call. The deal also expands Ensco's presence in the market for higher-specification rigs, which help operators drill in challenging conditions and also fetch higher rates.
Investors initially cheered the deal, bidding up RIG stock and Ocean Rig stock. On further inspection, Transocean may not be getting its money’s worth and there’s a lot to dislike about the buyout. In the end, the owners of RIG stock are getting a very mixed bag, indeed.
Offshore driller Transocean Ltd expects rates to lease drilling rigs to improve and contracting activity to pick up in late 2019, an outlook that drove its recent decision to purchase rival Ocean Rig UDW Inc for $2.7 billion, Chief Executive Officer Jeremy Thigpen said on Wednesday.

The acquisitions signal an improved outlook for the offshore drilling sector which has been slow to recover from the 2014 oil price crash.
Oil prices rose Tuesday as Tropical Storm Gordon barrels toward the Gulf Coast and disruptions in Libya sparked supply concerns and Transocean announced plans to buy a smaller competitor.

Offshore oil driller Transocean Ltd said on Tuesday it would buy peer Ocean Rig UDW Inc in a $2.7 billion cash-and-stock deal, its second major acquisition this year as the company bets on a recovery in the offshore sector. The acquisition signals new optimism for offshore drillers, which were hit hard by the steep plunge in oil prices from 2014. Offshore projects, which are more costly than onshore work and take years to develop, became less attractive after oil prices fell to below $30 a barrel in 2016.
