Halliburton/Baker Hughes Hold a Pre-Merger Garage Sale

garage saleHalliburton and Baker Hughes are having a pre-merger garage sale. In order for Halliburton to buy Baker Hughes, a deal worth $34.6 billion (see Shotgun Wedding: Halliburton Forces Baker Hughes to Sell), regulators are requiring both companies to shed more of their divisions and subsidiaries. Halliburton’s expandable liner hangers business is on the table. So too is Baker Hughes’ “core completions business,” which includes: packers, flow control tools, subsurface safety systems, intelligent well systems, permanent monitoring, sand control tools and sand control screens.
