  • Marathon Oil Announces Share Buyback and Other Transaction Plans (MRO)

    Marathon Oil Corporation (MRO) announced early on Tuesday that it is moving forward with a $1 billion share buyback authorization.

The share repurchases will be completed in two steps. First, an initial phase of $500 million in common stock repurchases will be completed.

Furthermore, Marathon Oil has reached an agreement to sell its 10% working interest in Block 32 offshore Angola to Sonangol E.P. This transaction is worth about $590 million and is also expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2013. "The share repurchases underscore our commitment to financial discipline and creating long-term value for our shareholders," said Lee M. Tillman, Marathon Oil president and CEO. "With the anticipated sale of our interest in Angola Block 32, we have now completed or agreed to divestitures totaling approximately $3.5 billion, surpassing the $3 billion upper end of our stated three-year target. We continue to evaluate our portfolio for high-grading opportunities and expect that process to remain evergreen and integral to our forward business plans."
