The Company has an order backlog of NOK 13.8 billion per 30.06.2019.
The Company is making progress with its stakeholders, including a constructive dialogue with key banks to adapt bank facilities to the current market environment.
DOF Subsea has today summoned a bondholder meeting in order to postpone an instalment in DOFSUB07 due on the 22nd of October, as further described in the summons. Based on the current dialogue with all stakeholders, the best estimate for reaching an agreement on the long-term solutions is during 4th quarter 2019, however no assurance can be given at this stage.
