Dockwise: Boskalis’ Offer Too Low

Boskalis Offer Undervalues Dockwise

Immediately following announcement of the unsolicited intended offer of Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V.  for the acquisition of all outstanding shares of Dockwise Ltd. (”Dockwise”), Dockwise invited Boskalis to clarify its offer. Dockwise and Boskalis are scheduling a meeting to be held shortly.

In the meantime the Board of Directors of Dockwise has – together with its advisers – started to review the consequences of a potential combination of Dockwise with Boskalis for the company as a whole, including its shareholders, as well as the employees, clients and other stakeholders.

Dockwise has said it has taken notice of the acquisition by Boskalis of 33% of the Dockwise shares. In addition Dockwise consulted with various large Dockwise shareholders, and several minority shareholders, together representing some 25% of the total share capital of Dockwise, have communicated their dissatisfaction with the current offer price.

At this preliminary stage the Board of Directors sees various merits in the communicated strategic rationale of a potential combination of Dockwise and Boskalis. However, the Board of Directors is of the opinion that the current intended offer price of EUR 17.20 per share cum dividend undervalues Dockwise and does not reflect its potential.
