Nam Cheong to invest up to US$30.7 million in Marco Polo’s Indonesian OSV builder

Marco Polo Marine says OSV builder Nam Cheong has agreed to invest up to US$30.7 million ($39.1 million) for a 30% stake in Marco Polo’s indirect Indonesian subsidiary PT Pelayaran Nasional Bina Buana Raya Tbk (BBR).

Marco Polo says it will place out 1.6 billion new shares in BBR priced at IDR230 (2.4 cents) each to Nam Cheong for the investment. Upon completion of the rights issue, Marco Polo Marine will continue to be the single largest shareholder of BBR with an 34.8% stake.

BBR currently has an issued and paid-up capital of US$41.4 million comprising 3.767 billion shares and Marco Polo holds a deemed interest 49.6%.

The net proceeds of the investment will be used by BBR to partially fund the purchase of five offshore supply vessels (OSVs) from Nam Cheong for a total of US$85 million and three vessels from MPM for a total of US$85 million. This is to meet rising demand in the offshore exploration and production sector in Indonesia which specifically requires Indonesian-flagged vessels to comply with cabotage requirements.

Marco Polo Marine last closed 2.9% higher at 35 cents.

Nam Cheong to take 30% stake in BBR
It is its second move in a year to entrench itself in the Indon oil-and-gas market

Sounding an upbeat note: Chief executive officer Leong Seng Keat believes that the Indonesian market, driven by an upsurge in E&P activities, holds exciting prospects for marine player Nam Cheong
SGX mainboard-listed offshore marine player Nam Cheong has taken a decisive step in growing its presence in the lucrative Indonesian vessel-chartering market through a strategic investment.
Malaysia's largest offshore support vessel (OSV) builder on Monday announced that it has agreed to invest approximately US$30.7 million for a 30-per-cent stake in the enlarged share capital of PT Pelayaran Nasional Bina Buana Raya Tbk (BBR), an indirect subsidiary of SGX mainboard-listed marine logistics company, Marco Polo Marine (Marco Polo).
Marco Polo holds a 49.6 per cent stake in BBR, which is an Indonesian Stock Exchange-listed company engaged in the business of ship owning and chartering through two divisions, one for tugs and barges and the other, for offshore marine.
Under the binding Heads Of Agreement that the two parties entered into, Nam Cheong has agreed to subscribe up to 1.6 billion new shares in BBR's rights issue, at an issue price of 230 rupiah per share, which was determined on a "willing-buyer, willing-seller basis". Nam Cheong confirmed that the investment will be funded through its internal resources.

Nam Cheong downgraded to "hold", target cut to 38 cents by OCBC

SINGAPORE (Dec 9): OCBC Investment Research has downgraded Nam Cheong ( Financial Dashboard) to "hold" from "buy" and reduced its price target to 38 cents after lowering its valuation multiple to seven times projected FY2015 earnings from 9.5 times.

The changes reflect a de-rating in the oil and gas sector amid falling oil prices.

"Though Nam Cheong has enjoyed a more diversified customer profile over the years such that Malaysian customers accounted for only about 20%-30% of year-to-date vessel sales, the fall in oil price is a global event and should impact all of Nam Cheong’s customers," OCBC analyst Low Pei Han said in a note today.

"Should an industry downturn be worse than expected, the group would face higher risks on margins and even the possibility of unsold vessels," she said.

The shipbuilder has sold 27 of the 30 vessels scheduled for delivery this year, and is looking to deliver 35 vessels in 2015.

For now, the risk of Nam Cheong facing order cancellations is low as its vessels operate in shallow waters, where oil companies have not cut production, according to Low.

Nam Cheong shares were flat at 34 cents at 9:04am (0104 GMT).
