Koninklijke Boskalis Westminster NV announced with reference to the press release of January 30, 2013 regarding the all cash mandatory public offer for all the issued and outstanding ordinary shares of Dockwise that the Company confirmed that it has signed the agreements for the required debt financing. The credit facilities contain a combination of a 3-year term loan (USD 525 million) and a 5-year revolving credit facility (EUR 500 million). The term loan and revolving credit facility have been arranged by a group of BMLAs comprising ABN AMRO Bank, BNP Paribas, Rabobank, ING Bank, Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ and The Royal Bank of Scotland. ABN AMRO Bank and The Royal Bank of Scotland acted as coordinators. The Company has also entered into a bridge credit facility (USD 525 million) with Rabobank and The Royal Bank of Scotland.
