About the deal

In 2009 Bryan, Garnier & Co acted as sole manager to Siem Offshore on a NOK 350m private placement, representing 10% of the outstanding shares in the company.

Terje Sørensen, CEO of Siem Offshore, commented: “We are pleased to see this equity issue in place and that the financing of the Brazilian new-building commitments announced in second half of 2009 is now completed. Moreover, some of the proceeds will fund commercialization and product development in the subsidiary Siem WIS and will enable us to seize growth opportunities that arise. We now have an even stronger foundation to further build this company as a leading operator of advanced deep-water service vessels to the offshore oil industry and to take advantage of opportunities that exist in the current business environment.
