After the close of business on April 30, Phillips 66(PSX) will be distributed to shareholders of

ConocoPhillips(COP).  Phillips 66 will receive refining, marketing, midstream and chemicals businesses from the integrated oil company. ConocoPhillips shareholders will receive 1 share of the new Phillips66 for every 2 shares they own.

At the same time, the new Phillips 66 will join its parent, ConocoPhillips, in the S&P 500, replacing supermarket chain SUPERVALU(SVU).  In a cascading series of changes, SUPERVALU will move into the S&P MidCap 400, replacing American Greetings(AM), which will move into the S&P SmallCap 600, replacing The Standard Register(SR).

Both ConocoPhillips and Phillips 66 are already trading on a “when issued” basis.  ConocoPhillips(COP-wi) closed yesterday at $53.79 and Phillips 66(PSX-wi) at $34.75, while the “regular way” ConocoPhillips closed at $71.02, meaning the when-issued shares are at a slight, $.14 premium.  We expect that both companies will continue to perform well and benefit from the robust petroleum market and improving economy.

    Hi guys, 

    I just want to say what a great blog this is and a fantastic way of staying on top of all these various spin-offs and their developments.This blog is a very good starting place to do research and to get tipped off that a spin-off is in the pipeline and I appreciate that you track its progress all the way to the final separation.  
    I have a portfolio set aside specifically to invest in spin-offs and it has done well with Xyl & Beam in the US and North sea oil consolidator Enquest in the UK. Spin-off investing is probably one of the easier, yet a still very effective style of investing. So just to say keep up the good work and thank you very much for doing this. Best regardsJustin Pugsleyin the UK
