Source: 2/11/2022, Location: Europe

EBITDA for the fourth quarter was USD 4.4 million (USD 0.7 million), reflecting a higher activity level with a fleet utilisation rate of 59.3 per cent (25.0 per cent). Following the completion of the restructuring in December 2021, the liquidity reserve at the end of the quarter was USD 74 million.

As informed in earlier press releases, the restructuring process was completed in December 2021 and resulted in a significant de-leveraging of the balance sheet with approximately 75 per cent of debt reduction, a corresponding reduction in annual debt service, USD 74 million in cash per year-end 2021 and in sum a significantly improved balance sheet and improved financial flexibility.

At the start of 2022, Prosafe is revitalized and well positioned for growth and value creation. The company has secured a high utilization for 2022 and has increased its order backlog.

On 27 January 2022, Prosafe SE implemented a 1,000:1 reverse split of the company's shares to satisfy the minimum requirement to market value of the issuer’s shares for listed companies.
