Vopak has entered into a binding agreement to divest 3 terminals and a plot of land in the United States
Royal Vopak has entered into a binding agreement to sell three wholly owned terminals and its plot of land in the United States to Kinder Morgan Inc., a US-based energy infrastructure company. This is in line with Vopak’s business review, which was announced on 2 July 2014, to amongst others divest around 15 primarily smaller terminals. The terminals involved are: Vopak Terminal North Wilmington and Vopak Terminal South Wilmington, both located in the state of North Carolina, and Vopak Terminal Galena Park, located in the state of Texas. The combined operational capacity of these terminals is 300,750 cbm. This total operational capacity doesn’t include Vopak Terminal South Wilmington (50,000 cbm) which was idled by Vopak in October 2013 and has not been in operation since that time. The plot of land included in the divestment package is located in Perth Amboy, New Jersey.

The completion of this divestment is subject to certain customary closing conditions and is expected to be finalized by the end of Q1 2015. The agreed upon divestment/acquisition price, based on the debt free enterprise value of the to be divested terminals and land amounts to approximately USD 158 mln. These gross proceeds are subject to US capital gain tax. From a financial reporting perspective the divestments will be reported in 2015 as an exceptional gain before tax of approximately USD 65 mln. The net cash flows resulting from this transaction will be used to execute our strategy in line with the outcome of the business review reported on 2 July 2014.
