Pacific Drilling Reportedly Becoming A Takeover Target

Pacific Drilling S.A. (NYSE:PACD) is gaining interest as a takeover target due to its depressed market value owing to year-long oil price rout. Pacific Drilling has attracted interest from Ensco plc (NYSE:ESV), Transocean Ltd. (NYSE:RIG) and SeaDrill Limited (NYSE:SDRL) in the last 12 to 18 months, according to a person familiar with the matter. One of those approaches was made in 2015, the person said, asking not to be identified as the information is private. Pacific Drilling isn’t actively exploring a sale and the approaches so far have been rebuffed, according to the person. Amy Roddy, a representative for Pacific Drilling, said the company doesn’t comment on speculation of any transaction. Representatives for Ensco and Transocean didn’t respond to requests for comment, nor did a London-based representative for Seadrill, reported Bloomberg.
