Odfjell announces that the transaction with Lindsay Goldberg has been closed.
As part of the transaction, Lindsay Goldberg has acquired a 49% interest in Odfjell Terminals AS ("OTAS"), the holding company for substantially all of Odfjell's tank terminals activities. In exchange for a 49% share in OTAS, Lindsay Goldberg has made a cash investment in OTAS, by way of a capital increase of USD 219.2 million. This comes in addition to the contribution of their 49% share in the existing joint venture. As a result, all of the assets in the existing joint venture will be owned by OTAS. OTAS is now owned 51% by Odfjell and 49% by Lindsay Goldberg.
