Macquarie buying offshore heli leasing firm Waypoint for $650M

first_imgIn a court declaration related to the Bankruptcy protection, Todd Wolynski, Waypoint’s General Counsel and Chief Administrative Officer said: “The cyclical downturn in the oil and gas industry beginning in 2014 led to a significant decline in offshore oil exploration, cost reduction measures for production operations, and a substantially decreased demand for offshore drilling services by upstream, exploration and production companies (“E&P Companies”).“Although the price of crude oil had slowly begun to rebound, the effects of this protracted downturn are still evident. The severe reductions in capital spending and cost-cutting measures implemented by the offshore oil and gas industry during the downturn have resulted, in turn, in decreased demand for helicopter services from the [ Waypoint’s ] primary customer base, the oil and gas helicopter operators ( [ Waypoint’s ] lessees).“Cost-cutting measures implemented by the offshore oil and gas industry during the downturn have resulted, in turn, in decreased demand for helicopter services.”“Due to this negative impact on the helicopter service industry, helicopter operators have employed their own cost-cutting measures, including reducing their fleet size, engaging in fewer lease extensions or renewals, demanding rental reductions, and, in some cases, filing for reorganization under the Bankruptcy Code. The Debtors’ single largest customer, CHC Group Ltd., and certain of its affiliates (collectively, “CHC”) filed for chapter 11 relief in May 2016.“As a result of CHC’s filing, by May 2018, the [Waypoint] experienced an annualized $45 million reduction in revenues associated with the forty-four (44) aircraft leased to CHC on account of CHC’s rejection or renegotiation of the leases for such aircraft. Further, to date, the [Waypoint] have incurred approximately $28.4 million in unexpected transition and maintenance costs on account of the rejected CHC aircraft.”Wolynski further said that the oil and gas industry downturn has created an oversupply of available helicopters in the market, which has significantly impacted the Waypoint’s utilization and yields.He said” [Waypoint’s] revenue declined 12% in 2017 as compared to 2016 and the weighted average remaining lease term was reduced to 2.2 years for the year ended December 31, 2017, down from 3.1 years at the end of 2016″He said that as of the Bankruptcy protection petition that, Waypoint’s total fleet utilization was approximately 78%, down from utilization rates of approximately 94% to 100% during 2013 to late 2015.Macquarie’s acquisition of Waypoint is expected to close in the first quarter of 2019, subject to, among others, Bankruptcy Court and regulatory approval. Waypoint will continue to operate in the ordinary course of business until financial close.Offshore Energy Today Staff Waypoint Leasing Holding, one of the world’s largest helicopter leasing companies which recently filed for bankruptcy protection, is set to be acquired Macquarie Group.Illustration: Offshore helicopter/ Image by: Ausjun22/Wikimedia, Shared under CC BY-SA 4.0 licenseAccording to agreements signed last week, Macquarie will buy the offshore helicopter leasing specialist for $650 million.Macquarie Rotorcraft Leasing will combine the Waypoint helicopter assets and management platform with its own portfolio and employ the Waypoint staff.“This is a momentous step forward in achieving our goal to transform Waypoint,” said Hooman Yazhari, Chief Executive Officer of Waypoint. “With Macquarie’s strong balance sheet and incredible depth in aviation, the integrated platform will be the most dynamic in the industry. The expertise of our combined resources and human capital will give us an unparalleled foundation to bring stability and a long-term balance to a sector filled with uncertainty.“We remain incredibly grateful for the support of our stakeholders throughout our transformation process, including our lenders, customers, OEMs and MROs and, above all, our employees who have worked tirelessly. We anticipate a speedy conclusion of the sale process, after which we and Macquarie will reach new heights, poised to capture the many opportunities ahead of us.”“We anticipate a speedy conclusion of the sale process, after which we and Macquarie will reach new heights, poised to capture the many opportunities ahead of us.”Waypoint, which owns 165 helicopters built by major players such as Sikorsky, Bell, Airbus, and Leonardo, last week said it had received commitments from a consortium of several of its existing lenders for $45 million of debtor-in-possession (“DIP”) financing, to facilitate the sale of the company to Macquarie.“The DIP financing will provide Waypoint with ample liquidity to continue operating in the ordinary course during its Chapter 11 bankruptcy case,” Waypoint said.Waypoint on November 25, 2018, filed a voluntary petition for relief under chapter 11 of title 11 of the United States Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York to allow for breathing space to explore restructuring options as it was unable to pay its debts “as they fall due.”While Waypoint leases helicopters to operators in various industries such as emergency medical services (EMS), government and humanitarian services, utility and firefighting, search and rescue (SAR) and wind farm support, according to court documents majority of Waypoint’s lessees are helicopter service providers servicing the offshore oil and gas industry.This ties the company to the state of the offshore oil and gas industry which has been hit hard by the oil and gas downturn which started in 2014.Oil industry downturns spills over to helicopterslast_img read more

Neymar’s mum, 52, dating 22-yr-old ‘dreamy boy’ gamer

She posted a picture of herself embracing Ramos in a garden. And she accompanied the snap with the caption: “The inexplicable cannot be explained, you live it… ” Brazilian outlet UEL Esporte has shed more light on Ramos, revealing him to be part of a gaming team called 4K Easy. But if that sounds a little geeky, he balances it out by also happening to be a model. Nadine split with Neymar’s father and agent Wagner Ribeiro in 2016 after 25 years of marriage.Advertisement Neymar’s 52-year-old mum has stolen the limelight from her son after it emerged she is dating a computer game fan aged just 22. And despite the age gap, her new relationship appears to have the approval of her superstar son. Long before meeting Nadine, Ramos, from the Brazilian state Pernambuco, was a super-fan of Neymar himself. He revealed that he sent the Paris Saint-Germain star a message in 2017, reading: “Neymar you are fantastic, I don’t know how to explain the emotion of being a fan of a guy likes you, I see you playing and I’m very motivated, one day I hope to read this message with you, be your brother, and play together. “I know that one day I will meet you because I am a dreamy boy where I do not give up on my goals! Stay with God, very successful and happy.” And his wish appeared to have come true when he posted a picture of himself with his hero back in January – before sharing another snap from Neymar’s lavish birthday bash a month later. read also:Neymar ready to mock  Haaland after PSG-Dortmund tie in advance, says Marquinhos Nadine’s new toy boy isn’t the only unusual relationship to have graced Brazilian football this season, with Hulk having married his ex-wife’s NIECE recently after starting a relationship last year.
