Following the announcement on 2nd September 2013 that it has settled the dispute with Samsung Heavy Industries and that two LNG Carriers have been ordered, FLEX LNG (Oslo Axess: FLNG) will work towards securing employment for the LNG Carriers and continue its preparations to manage the construction process.
The board of directors at FLEX LNG has decided to commence a process to explore strategic alternatives that are available to the company. Although other options are said to be available, the outcome of such a process may be for FLEX LNG to become part of a business combination, or for a full or partial sale of the company or its assets to take place. Alternatively, FLEX LNG could enter into a strategic partnership with a third party. The company expects to have reached a resolution to the strategic process by Q1 2014.
Arctic Securities ASA has been retained to assist the board of directors in evaluating strategic alternatives.
