JACCAR Holdings Sells Shares of Chinese Shipyard

Monday, April 23, 2012

JACCAR Holdings has helped to build Sinopacific Offshore and Engineering (SOE) into one of China’s leading providers of LPG/LEG vessels, offshore cranes, and offshore production, through its 25% share in the company. JACCAR Holdings has  sold its shares to Pearlfine Ocean Worldwide, who joins Evergreen Holding Group and Sinopacific Shipbuilding Group in the new shareholding structure. Since 2009 JACCAR Holdings has ordered six LPG Tiger 5000cbm, (first vessel to be delivered at the end of May 2012) and 8 LEG Tiger 12 000cbm (delivery as from 2013) from SOE. This investment, coupled with close cooperation between SOE and JACCAR Holdings have positioned SOE as a strong, innovative and unique player in the LPG/LEG field worldwide. With the targeted listing of SOE and the strong interest now shown by many other customers, this move will eliminate related party transactions as well as possible conflict of interest and enable SOE to venture out into new projects with new clients for profitable growth. All the vessels ordered by JACCAR Holdings from SOE will be added to the existing fleet of Greenship Holdings, which is a fully owned subsidiary of JACCAR Holdings in Singapore. The aim is to own and operate advanced, fuel efficient and environmentally friendly vessels. Total investment in the gas and bulk sectors is around $900 M. The modern fleet will provide customers with reliability and cost efficiency whilst setting new standards for safe and sustainable gas transport at sea.
