Martine beval Boskalis al veel eerder dit jaar aan in BC, toen de koers rond de 28,00 stond. Blijkbaar wil ze haar verlies inlopen.

Edward Heerema
Chief Executive Officer, Allseas Group
Route de Pra de Plan 18, Case Postale 411
1618 Châtel-Saint-Denis
Switzerland

Dear Mr. Heerema,

This week, President Trump will sign into law the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2020. Section 7503 of that Act mandates that the President impose broad sanctions on foreign persons or companies involved in providing vessels for the installation of deep-sea pipeline for the Nord Stream 2 project. As of his signature, those activities are instantaneously subject to the full force of those sanctions.

This letter is to put you, your employees, your company, and your shareholders on formal legal notice. This legislation was passed specifically to immediately halt your company's work on Nord Stream 2. The only responsible course of action is for Allseas Group S.A. and its employees to stop Nord Stream 2 activities immediately.

We understand that Russia is paying Allseas a very substantial amount of money to complete the Nord Stream 2 pipeline. However, the consequences of your company continuing to do the work-for even a single day after the President signs the sanctions legislation-would expose your company to crushing and potentially fatal legal and economic sanctions.

Your contract surely contains an avenue to withdraw in the event regulations or sanctions prevent completion of the pipeline; with the passage of the NDAA, you have no reasonable choice but to exercise that avenue and immediately halt installing deep-sea pipeline for the Nord Stream 2 project.

Section 7503 was the product of almost a year of bipartisan, bicameral, and interbranch efforts aimed at immediately stopping the construction of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline. It requires the President to report on and impose sanctions against individuals and companies that have "sold, leased, or provided" vessels that "engaged in pipe-laying at depths of 100 feet or more below sea level for the construction of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline project." There is no discretion. It also mandates sanctions against foreign persons or companies that seek to circumvent those prohibitions by "facilitat[ing] deceptive or structured transactions to provide those vessels for the construction" of the pipeline.

The prohibitions are immediate, and the sanctions are mandatory. Prohibited activities became sanctionable "beginning on the date of the enactment of this Act," i.e. when the President signs the NDAA, and the "the President shall" designate violators.

Under the sanctions in Sec. 7503, violators will be fully cut off from the United States and have any and all assets within the U.S. blocked for 5 years. Any individual designated will be denied the issuance of a visa required for admission to the U.S. and will have any current visa or entry documentation revoked. Moreover, for both individuals and companies, the President is required to exercise all powers granted to him by the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.) "to block and prohibit all transactions in all property and interests in property" to the extent they "are in the United States, come within the United States, or come within the possession or control of a United States person."

Allseas has several vessels that, according to materials published by the Nord Stream 2 project, are engaged in the project: the construction vessel Pioneering Spirit (IMO: 9593505, MMSI: 249110000, Call Sign: 9HA4112), the pipelay vessel Solitaire (IMO: 7129049, MMSI: 249118000, Call Sign: 9HA4114), and the pipelay vessel Audacia (IMO: 9305130, MMSI: 249117000, Call Sign: 9HA4111). The Pioneering Spirit and Solitaire are currently in the Baltic Sea, and at least the Pioneering Spirit is engaged in deep-sea pipe-laying activities that are now sanctionable.

If you violate the sanctions legislation, and your vessels enter U.S. jurisdiction, those vessels will become frozen assets.

Allseas and its key personnel who knowingly sell, lease, or provide those vessels for the Nord Stream 2 project will be sanctioned if those activities do not cease immediately. For the next half decade your company and those personnel will be entirely barred from the U.S. In the meantime, any transactions they attempt to conduct with anyone who is in the U.S. or using the U.S. financial system will be blocked. Moreover, all property you have within our jurisdiction will be frozen, including assets related to Allseas USA headquartered in Houston, TX, any financial assets in U.S. banks, and any physical vessels or materials owned by Allseas that come into the U.S.

It is important to reemphasize the immediacy required by Sec. 7503, because this aspect of the legislation has been broadly misunderstood and misreported. In two months, the President will report to Congress if Allseas ceased engaging in sanctionable activities and, if you did not, you will be sanctioned. Although the report is due in 60 days, your legal exposure is immediate from the moment of signing.

To be sure, there is a 30-day "wind-down" period for which the President has the option of not imposing sanctions, but to exercise that option the President must certify to Congress that Allseas "engaged in good faith efforts to wind down operations." Rushing to finish the Nord Stream 2 project over that time would foreclose the possibility of that certification.

If you were to attempt to finish the pipeline in the next 30 days, you would devastate your shareholders' value and destroy the future financial viability of your company. And, you would surely face billions of dollars in shareholder derivative suits for your breach of fiduciary duty.

You face a binary choice: stop NOW, and leave the pipeline unfinished (the express intention of the sanctions legislation, which we authored), or make a foolish attempt to rush to complete the pipeline and risk putting your company out of business forever.

The U.S. government knows that the Nord Stream 2 pipeline is near completion and considers it a grave threat to European energy security and American national security. Top officials from the State and Treasury Departments have repeatedly emphasized the gravity of those threats and sought to forestall them. Sec. 7503 represents a whole-of-government approach to ensuring that the pipeline remains uncompleted and those threats are never realized.

It's time for the Pioneering Spirit and Solitaire to find other waters in which to sail.

Sincerely,
Dongen

Zou het zover kunnen komen dat ik als Boskalis aandeelhouder ten tijde van ondertekening van de nieuwe wet door President Trump zodadelijk de VS niet meer in mag … ? Zou dat indirecte aandeelhouders (aandeelhouders in Hal, beleggingsfondsen, …) ook kunnen raken? Zie je het al voor je: All ABN assets in US frozen for 5 years. Hal and Dutch pension fund assets seized. 60 % of Dutch citizens who directly or (possibly very) indirectly own shares Boskalis blacklisted. Enz. Zou graag maandag van Boskalis willen horen wat de nieuwe wet volgens hen betekent voor het bedrijf. En wat Boskalis van plan is te doen.

Dan heb ik onderstaande verkeerd begrepen:

Papendrecht, 8 November 2019

THIRD-QUARTER HIGHLIGHTS

Good revenue development with strong improvement of the result compared to the first half of the year

Healthy utilization of trailing suction hopper dredgers within Dredging

Strongly improved result at Offshore Energy and stable utilization of heavy transport vessels

Order book: EUR 4.2 billion

OUTLOOK FOR 2019



In the contracting activities, seabed intervention, including for example Nord Stream 2 and projects in the North Sea and in the Middle East, made a good contribution to the result for the quarter.

Dit alles overstijgt het bedrijf Boskalis.
Ik verwacht van Europa een ferm standpunt.
Trump meent ons te kunnen ringeloren.
Niet dus.
Nu kan Europa laten zien dat het geen slappe knieën heeft.
Of zit iedereen graag in de kou?
Trump komt ons echt geen blikjes schaliegas brengen.

Uit Newsweek (2018):

Whether stemming from ignorance, nationalism or political point-scoring, Trump has been a longtime critic of the European Union, which, some observers have argued, is in his mind synonymous with Germany. The president has claimed regularly that the EU abused the U.S. on trade, even suggesting the entire bloc was designed to hurt America.

Trump has demanded European trade concessions, threatened to impose tariffs and supported Brexit, though in true Trumpian style suggested that British Prime Minister Theresa May should have followed his advice to secure a better departure from the bloc.

The president has even called the EU a "foe" of the U.S. on trade on the same level as China, despite a long—though admittedly not always smooth—history of cooperation between Washington and Brussels.

Last month, Trump told The Wall Street Journal, "The only difference between the EU and China was size. They treat us very badly. They don't take our farm products. They don't take our cars. They don't take anything. And yet, we give them a lot."

An unnamed senior U.S. official told The New Yorker, "Many European leaders have told me that they are convinced that President Trump is determined to destroy the EU."

En dan Bannon nog die hier met honderden miljoenen op zak de boel komt afbreken. En dat openlijk zegt. Uit de FT (2018):

Steve Bannon is on the warpath — in Europe. US president Donald Trump’s former chief strategist is a hard-right advocate of a hard Brexit. Now his ambitions extend further.

He wants to dismantle, destroy and bury the EU.

Mr Bannon, 64, co-founder of the alt-right website Breitbart News, is setting up a Brussels-based political vehicle called The Movement. Its purpose is to rally assorted rightwing populist and far-right nationalist parties in the campaign for next year’s European Parliament elections, to be held on May 23-26.

Raheem Kassam, a former aide to Nigel Farage, the ex-leader of the UK Independence party, which claims credit for Britain’s vote to leave the EU, explains Mr Bannon’s initiative: “The Movement will be our clearing house for the populist, nationalist movement in Europe …?We decided to headquarter out of Brussels because it is the heart of the European Union — the most pernicious force against nation-state democracy in the West today.”

Mr Bannon’s political vocabulary rattles with military imagery. Read this transcript of a recent interview on Britain’s LBC radio. He uses the word “war” seven times in seven short sentences.

“You’re going to have to fight to take your country back, every day — whether it’s Italy, France, England or the United States,” he says.

The Bannon offensive will confirm European leaders’ suspicions that influential elements of the US and British right, both traditional conservatives and extremists, would dearly like to weaken or bring down the EU. Some recall that Michael Gove, the UK’s environment secretary, urged a vote for Brexit in 2016 on the grounds that it would touch off “the democratic liberation of a whole continent” …

Europa is wel klein duimpje; het lijkt me niet verstandig tegen de reus de V.S. te gaan vechten. Wat moet je dan wel doen? Duimen dat ie volgend jaar niet herkozen wordt.

premium heeft er inmiddels een mening over. Ik weet niet of Boskalis daaronder gerekend wordt als het erom gaat dat het geraakt gaat worden door de -te nemen- maatregel.
Trouwens: in welk stadium van afbouw is de pijpleiding. Iemand?

@Dongen Nog ca 150km van de 1200. Nordstream 1 is al operationeel. Kortom, USA is rijkelijk laat. Denkook niet dat Boskalis nog heel veel werk te doen heeft.
