Tony Petrello Is Leading a New Deal with Tesco – Here’s How
Nabors Industries is one of the world’s largest energy companies, operating more land-based oil rigs than any other geothermal drillers. Just since 2016, the organization has joined sides among the likes of Saudi Aramco and Weatherford International – and here comes another. Tesco is planned to finalize agreement with Nabors that will reclassify the manufacturer and servicer of drilling equipment as its subsidiary. Nabors will congeal the operations of Canrig with Tesco, a force slated to earn a respectable $20 million in its first year, then mature at a $30 million full run rate synergistic force.
The upcoming transaction will satisfy the shareholders of Tesco shares via stock compensation. Shareholders will receive 0.68 shares of Nabors’ outstanding stock per 1 share of current Tesco common stock. All in all, shareholders will earn a premium of approximately 20% with this transaction.
Altogether, the current Tesco shareholders will earn slightly less than 10% of Nabors’ outstanding stock value, calculated at market capitalization of $1.81 billion. Most recent financial statements released by Nabors asserts its 2016 fiscal year revenue at $2.22 billion, earning $1.02 billion in net income.
Petrello, as many others already know, has a long-running career of excelling in his areas of concentration. Petrello was smart enough to attend Ivy League member Yale University for an undergraduate degree in math. He then earned a master’s in math, completing the pair at the young age of 19. Petrello quickly figured out that he didn’t want to work in academia or in applied fields of mathematics, instead opting for a spot at Harvard Law School. Following the completing of his juris doctorate, he went to work at Baker & McKenzie, an international law firm specializing in commercial relations and foreign tax guidelines.
He became a member of Nabors Industries in 1991, first working as COO and President. In his 20-plus years at the geothermal giant, he’s earned plenty – while not gouging his employer for a salary counted in top-paid lists of executives – to contribute to his philanthropic efforts. In the past few years, Petrello, alongside his wife Cynthia, gave $7 million to the Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute at Texas Children’s Hospital.
