Odfjell signed definitive agreements for a strategic partnership with Lindsay Goldberg LLC, a US-based private equity firm.

We believe there are attractive expansion opportunities in the tank terminal sector and consider Lindsay Goldberg as a reliable long-term partner with a shared strategic view and ambition.
Through the transaction, Lindsay Goldberg will acquire a 49% interest in each of Odfjell's tank terminals in Rotterdam, Netherlands and Houston, Texas as well as in the greenfield project in Charleston, South Carolina.  Odfjell will retain the remaining 51% ownership stake. The current management teams at the respective terminals will remain in place and will be responsible for the day-to-day business.
Odfjell will receive total cash consideration of USD 247 million in connection with the transaction, and the parties will invest a total of EUR 25 million of new equity to facilitate planned upgrades and capacity expansion of the Rotterdam terminal.
The transaction is subject to clearance from Norwegian Competition authorities and is expected to close by end of September.
