Further to the announcement dated September 20, 2011, the Boards of NKT Holding NS and Subsea 7 S.A. have completed their review of strategic alternatives for the future development of NKT Flexibles (the “Company”) which has been operated as a joint venture between NKT Holding A/S (51%) and Subsea 7 S.A.

Since the announcement of the strategic review in September 2011, NKT Holding A/S and Subsea 7 S.A. have conducted a competitive process which has involved both strategic and financial buyers.

The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including approval from the relevant competition authorities, and is expected to close during the first half of 2012.

“NKT Holding A/S and Subsea 7 S.A. are convinced that NOV will be an excellent new owner of NKT Flexibles in its further development, as NOV has significant global experience and reach within complementary products and solutions to the  offshore sector. “, reads a press release published on Subsea 7’s website.

Revenue for NKT Flexibles in 2011 was DKK 1.5 billion, with a proforma EBITDA of DKK 301 million after adjustment of price regulations recognised as income related to prior years.
