Following the completion of this transaction, Sembcorp Marine will cease to have any interest in CSG except via its investments of 4.98% shareholdings in the company.
With this acquisition, the equity interest of COSCO Group in CSG will increase from 3% to 33%, while the equity interest of COSCO Corporation in CSG will remain unchanged at 51%.
The equity interests of COSCO Group’s subsidiaries Shanghai Ocean Industrial Company and Guangzhou Ocean Investment Management Company in CSG will also remain unchanged at 8% each.
COSCO Corporation said that the completion of the disposal is conditional upon the fulfillment of certain conditions.
