Notice Regarding Transfer of Equity Interest in Equity Method Affiliate

-March 15, 2016-

press

We announce that IHI’s consolidated subsidiary JAPAN EAS INVESTIMENTOS E PARTICIPAÇÕES LTDA (“JEI”) has agreed to transfer its whole equity interest in Estaleiro Atlântico Sul S.A (“EAS”) to EAS’ other shareholders, which are members of the Camargo Corrêa Group and the Queiroz Galvão Group.

Details

1. Reason for Transferring Equity Interest

JEI acquired its equity interest in EAS in 2013. At that time, the rising demand for oil and natural gas, as well as Brazil’s increasing investment in structures and plants for offshore-resource development, made the investment in EAS an attractive opportunity for IHI to join the facilities-related side of Brazil’s offshore-resource development business.
Recently, however, the outlook for the JEI investment in EAS has been adversely impacted by several factors, including the recession in Brazil and the corruption scandal and related investigations involving Petróleo Brasileiro S.A. (“Petrobras”), which, among other things, have affected Sete Brasil, a drillship counter-party of EAS, and payments to EAS under its contracts with Sete Brasil. As a result, EAS’ financial performance has not been as expected at the time when JEI joined EAS. Also, facing financial difficulties due to the recession in Brazil and the long-term oil price downturn, Petrobras has significantly reduced its investment plan and IHI cannot expect the market condition for offshore-resource development facilities, for which IHI made the investment, to recover in the near term.
Under these circumstances, IHI and the other shareholders in JEI decided to transfer JEI’s whole equity interest in EAS to the Camargo Corrêa Group and the Queiroz Galvão Group, and IHI has decided to withdraw from all involvement with EAS.
IHI still thinks that Brazil can be a profitable market from a medium- and long-term perspective, and maintains its bases in Brazil.
