KEPPEL Corporation has agreed to sell its entire stake in GE Keppel Energy Services to GE Singapore of General Electric for S$24.6 million by February, it said in a filing on Friday afternoon.
Incorporated in Singapore, GE Keppel's main activity is the repair of electrical, mechanical and marine equipment and the repair of power generation equipment.
Keppel has a 49.99 per cent interest in the issued share capital of GE Keppel.
"The divestment is in line with the company's strategy to regularly review its asset portfolio to identify capital recycling opportunities. The proceeds from the divestment will be used by the company to pursue new growth opportunities," said Keppel.
The purchase consideration was based on the unaudited book value and net tangible assets attributable to a Keppel subsidiary's 49.99 per cent interest in GE Keppel as at Dec 31, 2016.
The subsidiary is Keppel Infrastructure Services, which is wholly owned by Keppel Infrastructure Holdings, itself a wholly-owned subsidiary of Keppel Corp.
