Keppel Acquires Stake in Dyna-Mac, Topside Module Fabricator

Wednesday, March 02, 2011
Keppel Offshore & Marine Limited (Keppel O&M), through its wholly-owned subsidiary KS Investments Pte Ltd (KSI), has acquired a 27.77% stake (250,000,000 shares) in topside module fabricator Dyna-Mac Holdings Ltd (Dyna-Mac) via an equity placement.
 
This follows Dyna-Mac's successful listing on the main board of Singapore Exchange Securities Trading Limited (SGX) today. KSI's total investment is S$87.5 million based on the invitation price of 35 cents per share.
 
The equity placement, through its investment vehicle KSI, is part of a collaboration between Keppel Shipyard (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Keppel O&M) and Dyna-Mac to jointly pursue the topside module business beyond Singapore's shores.
 
Mr Nelson Yeo, Managing Director (Marine) of Keppel O&M, was appointed to the Board of Dyna-Mac as a Non-Executive Director.
 
Mr Yeo said, "This strategic investment strengthens Keppel O&M's capabilities as a core solutions provider in floating production systems including Floating Production Storage and Offloading vessels (FPSOs).
 
"Dyna-Mac's expertise and operations will complement Keppel's competencies and allow us to exert better control over the process of designing and fabricating oil and gas production modules."
 
Having converted and built more than 100 FPSOs, Floating Storage and Offloading vessels (FSOs) and other production units, the Keppel O&M Group has established a solid track record in the engineering, fabrication and integration of topsides for customers worldwide.
 
"Keppel's global network, which covers many important markets, presents opportunities for both our companies to collaborate in the oil and gas production facilities business and create value for our customers," Mr Yeo added.
