Wilh. Wilhelmsen Takes Stake in NorSea

Press Release
Tuesday, June 19, 2012

Wilh. Wilhelmsen Holding Invest AS (WWHI) has signed an agreement to acquire 35.4% of the shares in NorSea Group AS (NSG)

NSG is the leading supplier of base services and integrated logistics systems to the Norwegian oil and gas industry.

Through its fully and partly owned entities NSG operates ten strategically located supply bases along the coast of Norway, including NorSea (Stavanger), Stordbase (Stord), Coast Center Base (Bergen), Vestbase (Kristiansund), Helgelandsbase (Sandnessjøen) and Polarbase (Hammerfest).

“The investment follows our previously announced strategy aiming at exploring new opportunities within the  energy-, offshore- and maritime industry, supplementing the activities of Wilh. Wilhelmsen ASA and Wilhelmsen Maritimes Services AS (WMS),” says Thomas Wilhelmsen, group CEO. While the investment is made on a standalone basis, there is future synergy potential between NSG and WMS related to products and services towards the offshore fleet.    

“NSG’s prime focus is presently the Norwegian offshore sector. While the strong development within the Norwegian continental shelf is expected to continue, NSG sees opportunities abroad. We aim at supporting NSG in this development, drawing on our global maritime network of people, related companies and partners,” says Wilhelmsen. “We look forward to creating a global shaper of supply base offshore and logistics solutions together with our new partners.”

Following completion, WWHI will be the largest shareholder in NSG.
