Talks Between Murphy Oil And Greybull Capital Collapse

The talks between Murphy Oil Corporation (NYSE:MUR) and Greybull Capital LLP for the acquisition of Milford Haven have collapsed. This may lead to the closure of Milford Haven and loss of jobs. Murco Petroleum Limited said it was entering into consultation with its 400 staff in Milford Haven about the future of the West Wales site. A company statement said, "UK refining remains a particularly challenging market, caused in part by declining demand and increased international competition. The UK currently has seven oil refineries down from a peak of 18 in the late 70s. It is against this backdrop that the company and Murphy have been working to try and find a solution that would allow refinery operations to continue at Milford Haven. During the past three-plus years Murphy has negotiated with numerous parties but has not yet been able to find a buyer for Murco. Following the expiration of exclusive talks with a potential buyer, Murphy and the company plan to speak with a small number of interested parties, which may or may not lead to allowing the refinery to continue to operate. Murco is therefore today entering into a period of consultation with employees and their representatives, including the employees that work at the refinery. Until this period is completed it is not possible to predict the outcome of this process. In the interim we will ensure we properly consult with our employees during what will understandably be an unsettling time for everyone concerned.'' Tom McKinlay, Managing Director of Murco, said,"Our focus today is on helping our people understand what this means for them. For over three years, we have left no stone unturned in trying to find a buyer for the plant. Our efforts highlight the challenges and ongoing changes confronting the European refining industry and are in no way a reflection on the attitude and work ethic of the Murco team. We will continue to do all we can to ensure our employees are supported during this time.'' Wales's minister for economy Edwina Hart said, "We are very disappointed by this announcement and fully recognise the impact this will have on the employees, contractors and businesses in the area. We have been working very closely with Murco over the past four years to try and secure the ongoing operation of the refinery and protect the jobs at the Milford Haven site. We have spoken to the senior management at Murco this morning to offer our ongoing support. The First Minister will be visiting the site at the earliest opportunity to explore all possible options to retain these valuable jobs at Milford Haven. We are very keen to work collaboratively with all levels of government and I have already spoken with the UK minister for business and energy to discuss how we can support the employees and the company through this difficult and worrying time.'' Unite's Welsh secretary, Andy Richards, said, "Jobs, the economy and the UK's security of supply are all at stake. The UK government cannot repeat the mistake of Coryton and allow another of the UK's oil refineries to close. It needs to do everything possible to maintain refining capacity at Milford Haven to meet the nation's energy needs and save the hundreds of jobs at the site. The workforce has been under real pressure and worked really hard in a climate of uncertainty over the past four years, while the American owner looked for a new buyer. They have done nothing to deserve this treatment. It's now time for all parties that have a stake in the future of Milford Haven to fight tooth and nail to save the refinery.''

Murphy Oil Corporation Declares Quarterly Cash Dividend, Payable June 2, 2014

The Board of Directors of Murphy Oil Corporation declared a quarterly cash dividend on the Common Stock of Murphy Oil Corporation of $0.3125 per share, or $1.25 per share on an annualized basis. The dividend is payable June 2, 2014 to holders of record May 16, 2014.

Greybull Capital Reportedly Close To Acquire Milford Haven

Murphy Oil Corporation (NYSE:MUR) is ready to sale its Milford Haven plant and retail assets to private equity fund Greybull Capital LLP for over $500 million, sources close to the talks said. The deal, which is expected to be signed in mid-April, could ensure Milford Haven's short-term survival despite its recent low profit margins. Crude oil and oil product inventories held by Murco were expected to account for more than half of the $500 million price tag, while the 400 service stations would account for most of the remainder, a source familiar with the deal said. The price put on the plant would represent a small fraction of the cost of the deal. Greybull, identified as a potential buyer earlier March 2014, intends to carry out routine maintenance that was already planned for Milford Haven in 2015 on schedule at an estimated cost of less than $75 million, sources have said. According to Reuters, a spokesman for Greybull Capital declined to comment.
