Schlumberger Plans To Buy Cameron In $14.8 Billion Deal

Schlumberger Ltd. (NYSE: SLB) and Cameron (NYSE: CAM) have reached a definitive merger agreement in which the companies will combine in a stock and cash transaction, the companies said in a joint statement.

The deal is valued at $14.8 billion. The agreement was unanimously approved by the boards of directors of both companies.

“This agreement with Cameron opens new and broader opportunities for Schlumberger.
