Fred. Olsen Energy restructuring plans hampered by potential rig buyer exit

first_imgOffshore driller Fred. Olsen Energy (FOE) is considering other restructuring alternatives or it might be facing bankruptcy following a withdrawal of a potential buyer for its drillship Bolette Dolphin.To remind, as part of its ongoing refinancing efforts, FOE in early November presented to its stakeholders a proposal for the refinancing of its capital structure.Key elements of the proposal included the sale of the company’s drilling unit Bolette Dolphin, the issuance of new equity in the amount of approximately $130-140 million in consideration of approximately 89% of FOE’s share capital, post refinancing, and the issuance of new loan capital in the amount of approximately $90 million.Last Thursday, November 22 FOE was in the process of negotiating a binding agreement for the sale of the Bolette Dolphin to a selected buyer at a price of $340 million.The implementation of the proposal, starting with the sale of the Bolette Dolphin, requires the unanimous support of FOE’s secured lenders.However, the key terms of the proposal have received the support from all lenders except for one. Therefore, certain of FOE’s secured lenders informed FOE last week that they would submit to Oslo Tingrett a petition for an injunction against the one secured lender obstructing the proposal in order to procure that the lender consents to the sale of the drilling unit Bolette Dolphin.Before managing to resolve the situation with the lender, FOE said on Wednesday, November 28 that the potential buyer of the Bolette Dolphin has withdrawn from the sales process given the significant change in oil and equity prices coupled with the uncertainty around the restructuring and sale process.Therefore, at present, FOE’s restructuring proposal is not viable and FOE will consider other restructuring alternatives in dialogue with its key stakeholders.FOE previously said that, unless a solution is found to the refinancing, the company would need to file for bankruptcy.Offshore Energy Today Stafflast_img read more

John Hagan: IGRG – Industry Engagement is key to improving player protections

first_imgShare UKGC hails ‘delivered efficiencies’ of its revamped licence maintenance service  August 20, 2020 Share StumbleUpon UKGC launches fourth National Lottery licence competition August 28, 2020 John HaganJohn Hagan, Partner at London law firm Harris Hagan and Chairman of the Industry Group for Responsible Gambling (IGRG), has outlined how industry stakeholders should aim to build coherent dialogue with the government with regards to the industry’s social responsibility measures.Speaking to industry news source Totally Gaming on the matter of social responsibility and player protection, as the UK government reviews gambling regulations with regards to FOBTs and advertising/marketing standards. Hagan told Totally Gaming that perspective is needed by industry stakeholders.As Chairman of the IGRG, Hagan notes the successful implementation of the UK industry’s ‘self-exclusion schemes’, which should demonstrate that both industry and regulators can work together and effectively improve consumer protections.Working between industry and governmental stakeholders, Hagan details that the IGRG has spent a significant amount of resource measuring the effectiveness of social responsibility measures. “From its inception, the IGRG commissioned a stock take of the existing social responsibility activities in each sector to understand what was currently happening and to identify potential areas in which the whole industry could contribute to and benefit from.”Hagan adds that cooperation between parties has led to notable improvements in messaging, problem gambling awareness and overall industry standards and practices.However, Hagan warns that industry participation and engagement is still needed in order to progress industry-governmental agenda in the next phases of potential regulation.“Industry participation is vital to obtaining information on current activities, establishing a vision for the future, testing messaging options, developing outcomes that are practical and workable and, critically, implementing them. Successful industry participation is vital to ensure that the operators have ‘bought into’ the implementation of the outcomes.”The IGRG and Hagan believe that  forward steps have been taken, with his organisation aware of industry governance desires to ‘do better’ with regards to responsible gambling standards.“We are in a very different place to where we were, even a year or two ago. The issues have moved from the compliance and regulatory affairs departments to the boardrooms of the biggest gambling operators in all sectors, and that is where the brave leadership is going to come from to shape the future of the industry.”“This is leadership which will be deserving of support and recognition from the Gambling Commission.” Submit Related Articles Winning Post: Swedish regulator pushes back on ‘Storebror’ approach to deposit limits August 24, 2020last_img read more
