Oil and Gas Services
Client: Kentz Corporation Limited
Tavistock advised FTSE 250 company Kentz Corporation Limited on its acquisition of Valerus Field Solutions, a US-based integrated oil and gas surface facility solutions provider, for US$435 million in December 2013.
Kentz is a global engineering specialist solutions provider, which serves a blue-chip client base in the oil and gas, petrochemical and mining and metals sectors.
Tavistock also advised on Kentz’s defence in August 2013 from two unsolicited bid approaches. Both approaches significantly undervalued the company. Tavistock demonstrated that Kentz’s business and prospects were not reflected in the indicative offers and worked closely with Investec and UBS to gain support from independent analysts and the media. Both AMEC and M&W Group withdrew their offers.
