Not Just MBSS! This Ship Issuer Also Changes Owner & Gets ARA

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia Management shipping issuer PT Rig Tenders Tbk (RIGS) announced that it is ready to change its controlling ownership directly and indirectly.

In the disclosure of information published by the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX), management announced that Scomi Marine Services Pte. Ltd. as a shareholder of the company, intends to transfer all of its share ownership of 490,597,000 shares representing 80.54% of the total issued and paid-up capital of the company.

The recipient of this transfer is PT Surya Indah Muara Pantai, a company established under the laws of the Republic of Indonesia.

The proposed takeover/negotiation plan for the takeover is stated in the Conditional/Share Purchase Agreement (CSPA) which was signed by the two companies on August 26, 2021.

The completion of the proposed acquisition or plan will be carried out in accordance with all preliminary terms and conditions as set out in the CSPA, the company’s basic budget, and applicable capital market regulations.

According to the disclosure, the impact of this takeover transaction is the change in the status of the controlling shareholder of the company from SMS to PT SIMP after the completion of the planned takeover transaction.

By changing the legal status of the company from a Foreign Investment Company (PMA) to a Domestic Investment Company (PMDN), the company can develop the company’s business activities which were previously hampered by the Cabotage Law principle.

Basics cabotage is a provision that requires ships in Indonesian waters to have an Indonesian flag.

This will have a positive impact on the company’s operational and financial performance and can increase the company’s profitability.
