To remind, four Japanese entities in 2017 teamed up to buy a 26 percent stake in  Yinson Production (West Africa) from Yinson.  Yinson at the time said that the Japanese consortium would pay between $104 million $117 million for the transaction.

Yinson on Thursday said that Japan Sankofa Offshore Production Pte. Ltd. “had on 20 June 2019 made the payment for the remaining consideration amounting to a total sum of $13.0 million” for the proposed sale of a 26 percent stake in Yinson Production (West Africa) Pte. Ltd.

A little over a year ago, the Malaysian FPSO company said that the proposed disposal had been completed on June 6, 2018, but the final $13 million payment was subject to the passing of the first year anniversary of the transaction completion date.

Yinson on Thursday said that following the $13 million payment, the total final consideration for the disposal was $117 million “which is the maximum Consideration receivable for the Proposed Disposal.”
