Wedding Season or Offshore Consolidation Takes Two Giant Steps

Monday was a big day in the offshore sector with two major transactions announced. First BW Offshore (“BWO”) made a voluntary exchange offer for all of the shares of Prosafe Production Public Limited it does not currently own. The company is offering 1.2 BWO shares and NOK 5.25 in cash for each share, which consideration equates to NOK 16.21 based upon Friday’s closing price, valuing Prosafe at approximately NOK 4.1 billion or a 17% premium to Prosafe’s closing price on Friday. BWO currently owns directly or indirectly 23.88% of the total outstanding shares with a wholly owned subsidiary owning a further 6.1%. Presently BW Group owns 66.95% of the total number of shares in BWO and will be diluted to approximately 47% to 49% shareholding in the combined company based upon an acceptance level of between 90% and 100%. The combination will create an FPSO company with the diversification, presence, resources and competence to meet the increasing requirements from both clients and regulators.
