Keppel O&M Completes Acquisition

Tuesday, January 04, 2005
Keppel Offshore & Marine Ltd (Keppel O&M), the wholly owned subsidiary of Keppel Corporation Limited, has acquired from the PEM Setal Group the latter’s entire 17.25% interest in FELS Setal S.A.

The cash consideration for the purchase is US$5 million. This was arrived at on a willing buyer and willing seller basis taking into account the net assets of the company and existing contracts.

With the acquisition, FELS Setal will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Keppel O&M, and will be renamed Keppel FELS Brazil SA.

The sale by PEM Setal is due to PEM Setal’s restructuring programme for its group of companies.

Keppel O&M is a global leader in offshore rigs and ship conversion and repair as well as a specialised shipbuilder. Its subsidiary is the industry leader in Brazil and operates the best-equipped offshore yard in South America.

The book value and net asset value of the sale shares as at 31 Dec 2003 was US$1.74 million.

The transaction is not expected to have any material impact on the earnings per KCL share and net tangible assets per KCL share for the financial year 2005.
