André Goedée, Chief Executive Officer Dockwise, commented:

"Dockwise is proud of its performance in 2012. We have delivered good growth for the year and chalked up some impressive operational milestones. In Fairstar, we completed a difficult acquisition and have conducted a successful harmonious integration.

As we prepare to merge with Boskalis, I would highlight our major achievements in the five years since IPO. From a commodity sea haulage business, we have built the oil & gas services provider our clients need. We have maintained leadership in our core heavy marine transport business while successfully developing two further commercial pillars: transport & installation and logistics management.
From an original fleet of 11, we have grown Dockwise to 25 vessels, converting and building ships to reflect the evolution of the energy industry offshore as ever larger structures require moving and installing in ever more remote places. We have led and consolidated our own industry, and year on year set records for the largest and most difficult tasks.

We continue to see an outstanding commercial opportunity to develop the services we pioneered for decades to come. With the support of a larger group, we will now accelerate our business in scope and scale to satisfy global client demand."
