        德国途易集团(TUI)已签署协议,将所持的赫伯罗特邮轮公司50%的股权出售给美国邮轮巨头皇家加勒比。
 
        双方于2020年2月7日在汉堡签署了合资企业利润分配协议(joint venture profit-sharing agreement)。
 
        这笔交易预计于今年夏天完成,价值120万欧元(约130万美元)。
 
        根据消息,赫伯罗特邮轮公司作为途易集团前子公司,将被并入途易集团与皇家加勒比游轮公司于2008年联手创立的合资公司“途易邮轮”当中。
 
        根据双方的协议,途易将汇报赫伯罗特邮轮公司50%的收益情况。
 
        途易集团表示:“赫伯罗特邮轮与途易邮轮的整合使得途易可以用较低的资本性支出参与到国际邮轮业发展中去。”
 
        途易集团补充道,集团将利用交易所得改善资产负债情况,并驱动集团向数字化组织转型。
 
        途易邮轮和赫伯罗特邮轮的合并目的是建立一家行业领先的欧洲邮轮公司,目前该公司共有12艘邮轮。具体来说,途易邮轮将继续迎合德语区高端邮轮市场,而赫伯罗特邮轮将继续其在豪华邮轮和探险邮轮市场上的不俗表现。
 
        途易集团CEO弗利茨·茹森(Fritz Joussen)表示:“合并后邮轮的特色、服务、产品质量和客户体验仍会保持现在的水准,特色鲜明。这会给集团本身、集团的扩张和投资带来巨大的优势。”
 
        赫伯罗特邮轮在德语区市场提供豪华邮轮及探险邮轮服务。其船队包括两艘豪华邮轮和三艘探险邮轮。赫伯罗特邮轮已下单了另外一艘探险邮轮,预计2021年加入船队以替代“不来梅号”(MS Bremen)。根据协议,未来几年中豪华邮轮和探险邮轮船队还会扩张。
 
        “像‘欧罗巴号’(MS Europa)和‘欧罗巴二号’(MS Europa 2)这样的产品和品牌所具有的潜力和吸引度都是国际性的。未来,我们作为股东可以在合资框架内以轻资产的方式为船舶和国际化扩张融资。”
 
        弗利茨·茹森(Fritz Joussen)总结道:“在过去十年里,途易和皇家加勒比建立了牢固的合作关系,并在此基础上创建了合资公司。从战略和商业角度来看,这一扩张决定对我们的未来增长意义重大。”

TUI Sells 50 Pct Stake in Hapag-Lloyd Cruises to Royal Caribbean
 
Germany’s TUI Group has signed an agreement to sell a 50 percent stake in cruise line Hapag-Lloyd Cruises to the US-based cruise major Royal Caribbean.
 
The parties signed a joint venture profit-sharing agreement in Hamburg on February 7, 2020.
 
The transaction, expected to close this summer, is valued at EUR 1.2 million (about USD 1.3 million).
 
As informed, the former TUI Group subsidiary will be integrated into the TUI Cruises joint venture, a “successful structure” having been established by TUI and Royal Caribbean since 2008.
 
Under the joint venture profit-sharing agreement, TUI will report 50 percent of Hapag-Lloyd Cruises’ earnings.
 
“The integration of Hapag-Lloyd Cruises in the joint venture will allow TUI to participate in global cruise industry growth at a low level of capital expenditure,” TUI said in a statement.
 
TUI Group added it would use the transaction proceeds to strengthen the group’s balance sheet and to drive its transformation into a digital organization.
 
The merger of TUI Cruises and Hapag-Lloyd Cruises under the umbrella of the joint venture is to create a leading European cruise company with a current combined fleet of twelve ships. Specifically, TUI Cruises will continue to cater to the premium German-speaking segment and Hapag-Lloyd Cruises will continue to have an exclusive presence in the luxury and expedition ship segment.
 
“The ships’ identities, service, quality and customer experience will remain as individual and unique as they are today. This will create significant advantages for the Group, for our expansion and for our investments,” Fritz Joussen, TUI CEO, said.
 
Hapag-Lloyd Cruises provides luxury and expedition cruises in German-speaking markets. Its fleet currently consists of two luxury ships and three expedition cruise ships. A further expedition cruise ship has been ordered and will be added to Hapag-Lloyd Cruises’ fleet in 2021 to replace MS Bremen. In light of the transaction, it is possible that the luxury and expedition fleet will grow in the coming years.
 
“Products and brands such as MS Europa and MS Europa 2 have international potential and appeal. Going forward, this will enable us as shareholders to take a capital-light approach to financing the ships and international growth within a joint venture framework.”
 
“TUI and Royal Caribbean Cruises have developed the joint venture company on the basis of a strong partnership over the past ten years. The expansion decision is the next big step of growth for us – from a strategic and a commercial perspective,” Fritz Joussen concluded.
