McDermott Completes Sale Of Harbor Island Property

Stocks in this article: MDR

McDermott International, Inc. (NYSE: MDR) (“McDermott”) announced today that one of its subsidiaries has sold the site of the former Harbor Island fabrication yard near Corpus Christi, Texas, which closed in 2003, for proceeds of $31.7 million. A gain of $25 million from the sale is expected to be recognized in the second quarter of 2014.

“The sale represents progress made towards our goal of divesting underutilized non-core assets,” said David Dickson, President and Chief Executive Officer at McDermott. “The concentration of capital on assets that provide McDermott with a competitive advantage is an important part of our plan to deliver sustainable long-term returns.”
