Fugro has entered into a sale and lease back agreement regarding its geotechnical vessels Fugro Scout and Fugro Voyager.

Leidschendam, The Netherlands

The agreement has been established with ICON Investments for an initial lease term of 5 years. The lease back agreement allows for extension options, at the discretion of ICON, for a total term of 12 years.

The sale and lease back of the Fugro Scout took place on 24 December 2015 with the Fugro Voyager following two weeks later on 8 January 2016.

The net cash proceeds of the sale and lease back transaction of USD 106 million (EUR 97 million) will be fully applied to debt reduction. The lease back classifies as an operating lease.
