Sanlorenzo have confirmed they are evaluating to enter into Perini Navi’s share capital. A few hours after the news broke about Perini Navi’s decision to undertake a procedure aimed at restructuring the company’s financial indebtedness through a debt restructuring agreement pursuant to Article 182 bis of Italian Insolvency Law, Sanlorenzo officially declared they have reserved a period of exclusivity of 2 months to conduct due diligence.
If this operation is positively concluded, Perini Navi which is currently owned by the Tabacchi Family (Fenix Srl), by Lamberto Tacoli and Fabio Perini, will see Sanlorenzo entering the company as new majority shareholder.
As explained in their official note, Sanlorenzo shares the same values as Perini: building made-to-measure products in limited number, with a very distinctive design for a sophisticated niche of international clients. The financial operation would be in line with the business model for which Sanlorenzo is very well known. At the same time, with Perini Navi brand in their portfolio, they could expand their action field consolidating their presence in the megayacht sector.
