Mystery investor circles stricken Swiber

Under judicial management since July 2016, Singapore offshore concern Swiber Holdings has received possible salvation.

The company has revealed it is studying a preliminary and non-binding expression of interest from an unspecified third party in relation to a potential investment in the group.

Swiber officials will be cautious however. Canada’s Seaspan Corporation had earlier proposed investing $200m into Swiber, a deal that was eventually terminated in January this year.
