HOUSTON – FMI Capital Advisors Inc., a subsidiary of FMI Corporation, is pleased to announce its advisory role in the acquisition of Magnum Oil Tools International, LTD by Nine Energy Service, Inc. FMI Capital Advisors served as the exclusive financial advisor to Magnum for this transaction.
The transaction positions Nine as one of the premier providers of completion-focused technology combined with excellence in both service execution and conveyance capability. The combined Nine/Magnum portfolio helps operators reduce risk and cycle times as completions continue to become more complex with longer laterals, more stages and mega-well pads.
“We believe this deal will continue to differentiate Nine within the industry, and Magnum’s capabilities allow us to create a more balanced profile of completion tools,” said Ann G. Fox, Nine’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Ultimately, this acquisition delivers an oil field service platform that provides customers with even better service and aids Nine’s continued growth.”
“Magnum is excited to join Nine. This is a perfect next step, given the standards and culture that have made Nine a leader in the industry match so closely to our own,” said Lynn Frazier, Chief Executive Office and founder of Magnum. “We look forward to working together to provide customers with the best quality products and services possible while furthering the development of Nine as an industry pioneer.”
The announced upfront transaction consideration included approximately $334 million of cash and 5 million shares of Nine common stock (valued at $159 million based on a 30-day value weighted average price as of 10/12/18). The terms of the purchase also include the potential for additional contingent payments based on certain future performance metrics.
The Magnum sellside advisory transaction is the second recently closed M&A transaction for FMI’s Energy Service & Equipment team. During the summer, FMI’s Energy Service & Equipment team served as the exclusive financial advisor to CSI Inspection on its sale to an unnamed buyer.
