据外媒今天广泛报道,英国工业巨头罗尔斯-罗伊斯(Rolls-Royce)周五宣布,已同意将其亏损的商用船舶业务以5亿英镑的价格售予挪威著名海事巨头康士伯(Kongsberg Gruppen


总部上海的国际船舶海工网查看了康士伯集团发布的英语新闻(如下)发现,“The transaction does not include Bergen Engines nor Rolls-Royce's Naval Business.”,就是说收购交易并没有包括著名发动机产品Bergen Engines和海军船舶业务,看来罗罗海事卖给康士伯还”留了几手“。业内人都知道,罗尔斯-罗伊斯(Rolls-Royce)旗下还有MTU发动机,而且MTU在海军领域用途很广,但新闻中没有提及MTU发动机业务的归属。

“The maritime industry has over the last years experienced demanding market conditions and even though there is still uncertainty we expect the market to be facing growth with technology and innovation being key drivers. For more than 200 years KONGSBERG has been a pioneer for high technology industrial development with a long term perspective. The acquisition of Rolls-Royce Commercial Marine is in line with our growth ambitions”, says Eivind Reiten, Chair of the Board of KONGSBERG.


“The acquisition of Rolls-Royce Commercial Marine makes us a more complete supplier to the maritime industry. The maritime industry is becoming increasingly globalized and is undergoing considerable technological and market driven changes. With this acquisition we will strengthening our strategic position with shipowners, shipyards and other customers and partners”, says Geir Håøy, CEO and President of KONGSBERG.


KONGSBERG is represented in more than 25 countries, whilst Rolls-Royce Commercial Marine is represented in 34 countries. Rolls-Royce Commercial Marine has approximately 3,600 employees and an annual turnover of NOK 8.9 billion (2017), whilst KONGSBERG has approximately 7,000 employees and a turnover of NOK 14.5 billion (2017). Combined, the companies have equipment and deliveries associated to around 30,000 vessels worldwide, and the installed base and the global presence strengthens an already world leading position with a considerable aftermarket.

 “The acquisition strengthens our global presence and will give increased sales and service volumes. KONGSBERG is a world leader within automation, navigation and control systems, whilst Rolls-Royce Commercial Marine is complementary with its deliveries of propellers, propulsion systems, handling systems and ship design. Both companies hold leading positions within digitalization, ship intelligence and concepts for autonomy. By bringing together this we are positioning us as a significant strategic supplier of complete solutions for the future maritime industry”, says Håøy.


“This deal is good news for Rolls-Royce and KONGSBERG and comes at a time when the maritime industry is at the dawn of a new and exciting era where digital and electrical technologies will transform shipping. Rolls-Royce has been responsible for leading many of those technological advancements, and with combination of great people, market leading technology and a desire by KONGSBERG to take this business to the next level, I’m sure that this business will prosper in the years to come”, says Mikael Makinen, Rolls-Royce President, Commercial Marine.


Rolls-Royce Commercial Marine has experienced considerable reductions in activity levels due to challenging market conditions within offshore related activity. A main priority going forward is ensuring profitability, and at the same time being an industry innovation leader. The acquisition will also strengthen Norwegian ownership in the world leading Norwegian maritime cluster, whilst the company will have a stronger Nordic and international position.


Financing of the acquisition


KONGSBERG will finance the acquisition of Rolls-Royce Commercial Marine through a combination of new equity and a new bond loan. The purchase price will be paid in cash upon completion of the transaction.


The new equity will be raised through an underwritten rights issue of NOK 5.0 billion.

The Norwegian government has communicated that it is positive that the state as an owner participates with its 50% ownership share in the rights issue, pending Parliament consent and acceptable terms of the rights issue in line with commercial terms.


The remaining 50% of the rights issue is underwritten by a syndicate consisting of DNB Markets, a part of DNB Bank ASA and Danske Bank A/S, Norwegian Branch and certain larger pre-committing shareholders.


Shareholders now representing 19.7% of the shares have undertaken to vote in favour of the rights issue at the KONGSBERG general meeting. Together with the state, these shareholders represent 69.7% of the shares in the Company.


KONGSBERG is planning to issue a new bond loan. Nordea Bank AB (publ) filial i Norge has undertaken to provide a bridge loan in the event that the bond loan has not been issued prior to completion of the acquisition of Rolls-Royce Commercial Marine.
