The Netherlands-based tank storage company Royal Vopak has completed the divestment of its terminals in Amsterdam and Hamburg to First State Investments. The divestment was announced on 5 April 2019.

The total agreed transaction value of the terminals in Amsterdam and Hamburg is around EUR 600 million, including a contingent consideration of EUR 15 million which is subject to certain revenue conditions.

At completion, the transaction generates a cash inflow for Vopak of approximately EUR 555 million. The total exceptional gain after taxation will be around EUR 190 million, to be recorded in the third quarter of 2019.

For the divestment of the terminal in Algeciras, Vopak is currently in discussion with the current minority shareholder in this terminal, for the sale of our 80% share interest for the same purchase price and terms and conditions as agreed with First State Investments.
