Dockwise Acquires Offshore Kinematics

Monday, July 23, 2007
Sealift Ltd, the parent company of the Dockwise group of companies has signed an agreement to acquire the entire share capital of Offshore Kinematics Inc (OKI) and Ocean Dynamics LLC (ODL). As consideration for the acquisition, the company has agreed to issue 6.9 million new shares, of which 3.2 million will be held in escrow and released in annual installments over 3 years, plus $15.7m in cash to the current principals of OKI and ODL.

The company expects revenue synergies and growth potential for the Dockwise Group from these acquisitions. This combination enhances the Dockwise Group position as a leading integrated transport and installation service provider for the Oil and Gas sector, in particular through float overs. OKI, ODL and the Dockwise Group have complementary strengths and expertise. The Dockwise Group's key existing assets, namely its large open stern semi submersible vessels, and its established engineering and project management capabilities, fit with OKI's and ODL's extensive experience in the design, engineering and installation of offshore modules specifically using the floatover method.
