Vallianz to Further Strengthen Its Capital Base and Expand Fleet

Vallianz Holdings Limited, an integrated offshore marine solutions provider in the offshore oil and gas industry, is set to further strengthen its capital base with a strong vote of confidence from shareholders.

The Group has received shareholders’ approval for the grant of options to Swiber and the issuance of capital securities to Rawabi. Shareholders have also endorsed its diversification into the area of sourcing and supplying of vessels and equipment and additional shipping-related services to the offshore oil and gas industry.

The total proceeds of US$57.2 million which could be raised from the issue of the option shares, as and when the options are exercised by Swiber, and the proceeds from the issue of capital securities to Rawabi, is intended to be used for capital expenditure relating to future fleet expansion and general working capital purposes.

Mr. Darren Yeo, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer of Vallianz commented: “We are delighted to have received blessings from our shareholders at our EGM to proceed with the funding exercise which will further strengthen our capital base. This is in line with our current plan to deepen our capital structure, including exploring Islamic financing through a Sukuk programme.

“With the additional funding, we are well poised to embark on our new corporate strategy and future plans which include an expansion plan to double our existing fleet by 2016, focusing on long-term charter. We will also look into widening our customer base in both new and existing markets through an expansion of asset portfolio and services.

“We are pleased to have made a strong start, working in close partnership with our strategic investors, Rawabi and Swiber, two world class players in the industry. We will look for opportunities to tap on Swiber’s strong business network by providing long-term charters to third parties while our partnership with Rawabi will enable us to strengthen our position in the Middle East.”
