Reuters reported that the world's largest liquid petroleum gas (LPG) shipper, Norway's BW LPG, is offering to buy competitor Dorian LPG in a USD 1.1 billion all-stock deal in an effort to boost its earnings in a weak market.

Dorian shareholders will receive 2.05 BW LPG shares for each Dorian share, equal to USD 7.86 per share, a premium of 13 percent from Friday's closing price, and based on BW LPG's share price on May 28.

New York-listed Dorian LPG's equity is valued at about USD 441 million and including debt the transaction is valued at USD 1.1 billion.
