IHC Caland Logs $100M New Business

Wednesday, January 07, 2004
IHC Caland reported that it had won new orders recently worth more than $100 million and would continue to meet its banking covenants. J.P. Morgan had said in October that IHC's high gearing implied the risk of a possible breach of its debt covenants. The group, whose main activity is building and operating floating production and storage platforms (FPSOs) for oil companies, also said on Tuesday that U.S. oil major Exxon Mobil Corp. would keep one of its FPSOs on a long-term lease rather than buying it as initially planned. Meanwhile, a new FPSO has started production for Exxon Mobil offshore Angola. With this new unit, IHC subsidiary SBM now has 13 FPSOs under lease and operating contracts with three new ones under construction, the company said.
