Anthony Bondain, published on 13/11/2017 at 06:58 New great oral for CGG today Photo Credit © CGG ( - D-Day for CGG. Or rather second day D, since the general assembly which is held today to decide on the plan of restructuring of the debt is reunited on second convocation, that of October 31 not having reached the required quorum. The shareholders are invited to join at 11:00 on November 13 the Park of the Gates of Paris, Dock Haussmann, 87 Avenue of the General Stores in Aubervilliers (93300). Resolutions submitted to the vote concern only the extraordinary part of the meeting, ordinary resolutions having been put to the vote. The stake remains the same: the shareholders must decide on a plan that will reduce their share of the holding, for the benefit of creditors who must benefit from a debt-for-equity swap. Maybe the survival of society is at this price. But maybe not. The debates promise to be virulent between supporters of the plan and opponents, even if most of the carriers had shunned the initial GA. The quorum was only 22.48%, sufficient for the ordinary part but below the threshold of 25% set for the vote of extraordinary resolutions. In second convocation, the required level is lowered to 20%. CGG has requested suspension of trading on its stock today, to avoid speculation before and during the meeting.
2117/5000 Bourbon deepens its losses, but the market shudders Anthony Bondain, published on 07/09/2017 at 07h15 Bourbon deepens its losses, but the market shudders Photo credit © Groupe Bourbon ( - Decline in Bourbon sales in the first half of 2017 to € 459.5 million, down 24.9% on a constant basis over one year. Not surprisingly, the accounts are under pressure from an activity that is still depressed in oil services. Adjusted EBITDAR excluding capital gains decreased by -37% to E145.1 million, bringing the margin from 38.2% to 31.6%. Adjusted EBITDA was down -56% to E59.6m while Adjusted EBIT increased EBITDA to E88m, after -24.8 MEn a year earlier. The net loss amounted to € -170.1 million, of which € -50 million of unrealized foreign exchange losses. Gilbert Dupont bet on an adjusted EBITDAR of this order but feared an even heavier operational loss. Portzamparc was in an almost identical expectation. Free cash flow generation improved compared to the second half of 2016, to € 76 million, due to lower investment expenditure and scheduled technical shutdowns. A shudder The CEO Jacques de Chateauvieux adopts a very cautious discourse, considering that the duration of the bottom of cycle is uncertain. His group continues to make the back round by cutting costs. The reorganization of the debt at the end of July guarantees a better margin of maneuver pending the takeover. With a barrel price stabilized around $ 50, oil companies have adapted and re-initiate exploration-production projects, says management, which concedes that demand remains low but adds that "signals of gradual recovery drilling and development of existing fields are perceptible in some countries ". Usage rates in Subsea and Crew boats are expected to stabilize. The deep and continental Offshore segments will see a slight increase in activity but at still low prices due to the overcapacity of ships in the market.

Fugro drops Asia/Pac subsea business 08/05/2016 Offshore staff LEIDSCHENDAM, the Netherlands – In its 1H 2016 report, Fugro released details of its recent movements to downsize its personnel, fleet, and overall business as the result of the continuing depressed market. The geoservices contractor announced an agreement with Shelf Subsea Holding UK Ltd. to divest its Fugro Asia Pacific subsea business. Fugro received a cash consideration of around 14 million EUR ($15.6 million) and about 25% equity share in Shelf Subsea. About 285 employees will be transferred to Shelf Subsea, along with four vessels, three chartered and one owned; 18 ROVs; and Fugro’s subsea offices in Perth and Singapore. The company said that it will integrate its geophysical survey and its offshore geotechnical activities into a single site characterization proposition. This is designed to provide insight into environmental and ground conditions of building sites, as well as to allow clients to lower the cost of design, construction, and operation while experiencing higher reliability. Fugro said it will reduce its headcount by another 1,000 over the course of this year after cutting 585 jobs in 1,577 in 2015. In addition, its active fleet was reduced by five vessels, and more maybe made during the remainder of the year. To an attempt to realize further efficiency gains, Fugro also reported that its Seabed Geosolutions joint venture with CGG will invest in its Manta technology. The crew will be operational in 1H 2017. Seabed Geosolutions describes Manta as a fully autonomous, modular “single four-component (4-C) ocean bottom node technology that works in all water depths from 0-3,000 m.” 08/05/2016 Share your news with Offshore at

Strabag is to sell its hydraulic engineering business to Royal Boskalis Westminster in a €70m (£51.6m) deal. Boskalis will acquire the equipment, employees and selected maintenance contracts of Hamburg-based dredging company Strabag Wasserbau. Remaining outstanding contracts will be taken over by Boskalis or will be completed by Boskalis as a subcontractor. “We have decided to sell our hydraulic engineering assets to Boskalis, which is capable of operating the business strategically,”; said Strabag CEO Thomas Birtel. “Within our group, these activities would be consigned to a niche area. We are especially pleased that Boskalis is also willing to further employ the 238 employees of Strabag Wasserbau GmbH.” The transaction is expected to be finalised in the first quarter of this year. The closing is pending approval by the supervisory board of Strabag SE and the competition authorities. The transaction will then become effective retroactively to 1 January 2016. The Strabag group had entered the sector in September 2007 with the acquisition of 70% of German hydraulic engineering specialist Josef Möbius Bau Aktiengesellschaft. The remaining 30% of shares were purchased in July 2011. In 2013, Josef Möbius Bau was renamed Strabag Wasserbau. In the field of dredging, the company generated annual revenues of between €60 and €160m in the years from 2013 to 2015.

Net profit doubles for Boskalis Written by Sarah McCay - 19 Aug 2014 Boskalis Westminster has reported net profit has doubled for the first half of 2014, compared to figures for 2013. The Dutch dredging and maritime infrastructure contractor posted a net profit of €253 million in the first half of 2014, up from €123 million for the same period in 2013. Revenue also increased, up 21% to €1.5 billion for the first half of this year, compared to €1.3 billion in 2013. Meanwhile, earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) was €466 million for the first six months of 2014, up from €280 million for the first half of 2013. Boskalis reported an order book of €3.15 billion as at June 30, 2014, down marginally on €3.32 billion as at the same point in 2013. CEO Peter Berdowski said, "We have posted a historically high result in the first half of 2014 and the performance across the board of the company has been very good. "This result is partly thanks to the strategic choice we made to broaden our focus on offshore. The offshore activities are becoming increasingly important and the contribution of Dockwise forms a key part of this. But the traditional core dredging activities also made an excellent contribution to the results." Boskalis became the largest shareholder in oil and gas service provider Dockwise in November 2012. Looking ahead, Boskalis stated it expects to end the year with a net profit exceeding that of 2013, which saw a net profit of €366 million. CONSTRUCTION EUROPE TOP STORIES
BLOOMBERG Boskalis Westminster surged 8.2 percent to 41.55 euros for its biggest gain since November 2010. The world's largest dredging company said it will buy back as many as 10 million shares in the next 2 1/2 years. Boskalis also said first-half earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization jumped to 466 million euros from 280 million euros a year ago.
Boskalis Posts Record Profit in First Half Year Posted on Aug 14th, 2014 with tags Boskalis, dredging, first, half, News, posts, profit, Record, year. Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. realized a net profit of EUR 253 million in the first half of 2014 (H1 2013: EUR 123 million). Revenue rose 21% in the first half of the year to EUR 1.5 billion (H1 2013: EUR 1.3 billion). Organic revenue growth was 13.4%. EBITDA amounted to EUR 466 million in the first six months and the operating result (EBIT) was EUR 338 million (H1 2013 EBITDA: EUR 280 million and EBIT: EUR 162 million, respectively). The results in all three segments rose sharply compared to the first half of 2013. Dredging & Inland Infra had a busy first half of the year with a high fleet utilization rate, good project margins and substantial settlement results on old projects. The Offshore Energy segment also had a good first half of the year with a high fleet utilization rate and good project margins. Furthermore, Dockwise contributed an extra quarter to earnings compared to 2013 in addition to a sizable contribution from cancellation and rescheduling fees. The results at Towage & Salvage were higher despite a quiet first half of the year in terms of salvage activities, but with good results from the settlement of older salvage projects. The order book stood at EUR 3,146 million at the end of the first half of the year (end 2013: EUR 3,323 million). Peter Berdowski, CEO Boskalis, said: "We have posted a historically high result in the first half of 2014 and the performance across the board of the company has been very good. This result is partly thanks to the strategic choice we made to broaden our focus on offshore. The offshore activities are becoming increasingly important and the contribution of Dockwise forms a key part of this. But the traditional core dredging activities also made an excellent contribution to the results. "In the first half of the year we achieved a high fleet utilization rate and good project results. In addition, a number of exceptional gains made a substantial contribution to the results, including settlement results on old projects in Dredging and Salvage as well as compensation for Dockwise transport contracts that were cancelled. The extremely good results may however not be viewed as a fair reflection of current market conditions which remain very challenging, both in terms of margin and volume." Market developments The markets in which Boskalis operates are driven by growing prosperity and the world's increasing population. This increases global trade and energy consumption, as the irreversible impact of climate change becomes visible. Boskalis responds to these trends. The extent to which these develop positively in the coming years depends largely on geopolitical stability and macro-economic growth. Positive investment decisions for large maritime infrastructure projects, which generate work for Boskalis, are closely linked to this. Boskalis expects a reasonably stable market environment for Dredging and Towage in the next couple of years. The growth of global trade flows and the need to maintain and expand ports are expected to continue at a moderate rate. The growth opportunities for Boskalis are mainly in the offshore sector in the field of Transport, Logistics and Installation. Despite growing reluctance in the offshore sector to make investment decisions when it comes to large projects, Boskalis remains cautiously positive about its own prospects in this part of the market by using and combining equipment and expertise throughout the group. Outlook Current insights suggest that the market picture is not expected to change significantly in the second half of the year compared to the first half of the year. With the projects in the order book a healthy fleet utilization is expected at Dredging and Offshore Energy in the second half of the year, although the utilization rate will be lower than in the first half of the year. After a very strong first half of the year for Dredging the absence of comparable substantial settlement results will result in a lower operating margin in the second half of the year. Similarly, the outlook for Offshore Energy is that the absence of comparable compensation for cancellations and delays will result in a lower operating margin in the second half of the year. The outlook for Towage & Salvage is stable compared to the first half of the year. Assuming the positive settlement of several old projects in 2014 the Board of Management expects that, barring unforeseen circumstances, net profit for the 2014 financial year will exceed the record profit achieved in 2013 (EUR 366 million). Capital expenditure is expected to be around EUR 300 million in 2014 and will be financed from the company's own cash flow. Press Release, August 14, 2014 Share this article from
