The RRCM is now an integrated part of Kongsberg.

“I have looked forward to this day for a long time. Together we are now well positioned in the market, and our ambition is to lead the development of the future maritime industry globally in close cooperation with customers and partners. We shall be the ocean space expert. We have spent a long time planning and preparing, now the work of ensuring a successful integration begins,” said Geir Håøy, CEO of Kongsberg.

The parties have agreed a value for Rolls-Royce Commercial Marine of GBP 500 million (on a cash and debt free basis and with working capital at an agreed level). The final purchase price is determined based on Rolls-Royce Commercial Marine’s cash, debt and working capital at time of completion of the transaction.
