    Tidewater's KMAR sale hits bumpy weather

    News // April 15, 2005
    Tidewater in the US has announced that the prospective purchaser of up to six of its KMAR anchor handling vessels advised Tidewater at the close of business on April 1st that, although the purchaser intended to continue its efforts to complete the transaction at the price and on the terms previously agreed, it had not been successful in satisfying one of the closing conditions by an agreed date.

    Tidewater had previously announced the proposed sale in mid-March. Given this development, Tidewater will continue discussing a sale of the vessels with the purchaser on a non-exclusive basis, but will also evaluate offers from other third parties, should any be made, and retains the unilateral right to accept a proposal for the vessels that it deems in its sole discretion to be superior.
