Tadaaki Naito, President, President Corporate Officer of NYK, said, “I am delighted that we can offer another range of service in offshore segment by joining into ECS. With reliable partners, I believe this opportunity would create strong alliance and I am excited that we would be able to contribute to worldwide offshore development, including that in our home country.”

Assuming these conditions are met, the transaction is expected to close by the third quarter of calendar year 2016.
