Oceanteam Shipping ASA releases its Q2 2014 financial report, with extracts as follows:

The company says it saw, with its early focus on Mexico, a long term strategy confirmed: its newly founded DOT Shipping partnership with Grupo Diavaz and the subsequent approval of the Mexican Energy Reform legislation is envisaged to create significant opportunities for the company.

These important events triggered plans prepared by the company and have so far resulted in the order, finance and time chartering of two new build FSV's.
 
DOT Shipping will focus on providing high-end vessel solutions and marine asset services in Mexico.
 
RentOcean, the company's marine asset services division continues to experience strong growth and level of services it provides.
 
To unlock existing strategic values and to prepare for future growth Oceanteam has engaged a financial advisor to optimize the capital structure.

Highlights of the Quarter

  • Revenue from operations USD 17.7 million
  • EBITDA from operations is positive USD 7.0 million
  • Operating profit of USD 4.4 million
  • Net finance negative USD 4.1 million

  •   system for 1 year plus options. The investment programme goes as planned with delivery end Q3
