Ince & Co Advises Fugro on Vessels Sale
Dutch stock exchange listed offshore operator Fugro is the world’s largest integrator of geotechnical, survey, subsea and geosciences services. Fugro is playing a key role in the search for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 in the Southern Indian Ocean. They are a longstanding client of Ince & Co’s energy department.
The sale and lease back of the Fugro Scout took place on 24 December 2015, with the Fugro Voyager following two weeks later on 8 January 2016. The net proceeds of the transaction will be used to reduce the company’s debt.
The Ince & Co team advising Fugro was led by finance partner, Beatrice Russ, and energy partner, Simon Hems, with assistance from Joe Snell, Stuart Plotnek, Lisa Howie and Shawn Kirby.
