Posted July 1, 2024
  • B&W received $87 million cash at closing, subject to customary adjustments and fees
  • The sale aligns with B&W’s comprehensive business strategy to reduce long-term debt and optimize capital structure
  • Company reiterates its Full Year 2024 Adjusted EBITDA target range of $105 million to $115 million, excluding BrightLoop™ and ClimateBright™ expenses

(AKRON, Ohio – July 1, 2024) – Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises, Inc. (“B&W” or the “Company”) (NYSE: BW) announced today that it has sold its Denmark-based Babcock & Wilcox Renewable Service A/S (BWRS) subsidiary to Zurich, Switzerland-based Hitachi Zosen Inova AG (HZI) for $87 million, subject to customary fees and adjustments.

BWRS, which employs more than 160 people and provides aftermarket parts and services for waste-to-energy plants in northern Europe and the UK, was transferred to HZI upon closing on Friday, June 28, 2024. 

“This transaction aligns with our previously announced intention to strategically sell certain non-core businesses and assets, and proceeds will be used to reduce our debt, increase our liquidity and support working capital,” Kenneth Young, B&W Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said.

“Energy demand in the utility and industrial sector is rapidly increasing, which is reflected in our higher bookings and full-year outlook within our segments and businesses as we move forward. Accordingly, we are reiterating our previously stated Full Year 2024 Adjusted EBITDA target range of $105 to $115 million, excluding BrightLoop and ClimateBright expenses.”

“B&W is a leader in technologies that provide clean, renewable energy from waste, and we will continue to leverage our core technologies, including our advanced DynaGrate® combustion grate, state-of-the-art boilers, fuel and ash handling systems and emissions control technologies in the European and global markets to support new build and large upgrade projects,” Young added. “We’re excited about the robust pipeline of opportunities we’re currently pursuing and the opportunity to continue to work closely with customers in these markets well into the future.”
