06/07/16 04:20 PMSuncor Energy to raise C$2.5 billion to fund possible purchases - [Reuters] - Canadian oil and gas producer Suncor Energy Inc said it would raise C$2.5 billion ($2 billion) through the sale of new shares to enable it to increase its stake in its Syncrude oil sands joint venture and to fund other possible acquisitions. Bankers have forecast an upturn in energy-related M&A activity this year with the low price of oil and recent cuts to companies' credit lines leaving some companies needing to look for new investment or buyers in order to survive. Larger oil producers such as Suncor may be in a position to take advantage of sector consolidation, they say.
