CSES to Acquire COSCO Tianjin Shipyard

 COSCO Shipyard Engineering Service (Dalian) (CSES), a 75%-held subsidiary of COSCO Shipyard Group (CSG), entered into a conditional sale and purchase agreements on 1 December 2015 to acquire the entire registered capital of COSCO (Tianjin) Shipyard Co., Ltd.

Pursuant to the sale and purchase agreements, CSES will acquire 90% interest in COSCO Tianjin from CSG and the remaining 10% interest from Tianjin Ocean Shipping Co. The purchase consideration for CSES’ acquisition of CSG’s 90% interest in COSCO Tianjin will be met by the issuance of additional equity to CSG. Following the issuance of the additional equity, CSG’s interest in CSES will increase from 75% to 86.5%.

CSES’ acquisition of Tianjin Ocean’s 10% interest in COSCO Tianjin will be carried out in cash.

“The purchase consideration for the acquisition was determined on a willing-buyer willing-seller basis after taking into account the net tangible asset value of the registered capital to be acquired as well as the performance of the business of COSCO Tianjin over the past years,” COSCO said in a release.

COSCO added that the above transaction is not expected to have a material impact on its earnings per share for the financial year ending 31 December 2015.

COSCO Tianjin specializes in voyage repair, automatic repair and ship spare parts supply.

Ferries Asia Summit

Propelling Regional Waterway Connectivity & Fleet-wide Operational Excellence

Ferry travel is in the limelight. The potential for driving tourism growth is immense – and for archipelago nations battling with urban congestion, ferry services pose a clean, efficient alternative in everyday public transport. But high-profile ferry accidents have brought ever greater attention to safety regulations for Asia’s maritime travel industry.

Amid these circumstances, how can vessel operators cope with ever-tightening safety requirements, while making the right decisions at the right time to capture rising demand? What are the smartest ways to improve service reliability and fleet quality, that maximize operating and capital spend? What are the industry’s best-practices for sustainable growth, and how can they be achieved?

Play your part! Join us at the Ferries Asia Summit 2017 to push forward the regional debate on making Asia’s ferry industry more progressive, safe, and commercially sustainable. Bringing together fast-ferry, RO-RO and ROPAX vessel owners along with international and domestic maritime regulators, classification agencies, shipbuilders and naval architects, this event connects the entire value chain for a meaningful holistic debate on ferry operations excellence in Asia.

WHAT’S ON THE AGENDA THIS YEAR?

Comprehensive debates on addressing the complexity of ferry safety in Asia: Is vessel age truly the greatest concern? How significant are other factors, and how can they be addressed?
