Suncor has commenced an unsolicited offer for Canadian Oil Sands (TSE:COS) for $4.3 billion.

Canadian Oil Sands was up sharply, 47% to $9.15 a share. Suncor is down 1.75% to $26.95.

Before the announcement, struggling Canadian Oil Sands was down 40% for the year while Suncor declined 17% over the same period.

Suncor says the total deal will cost the company $6.6 billion if Suncor assumes Canadian Oil Sands net debt.
