Industrial Holdings

Aker’s industrial holdings totalled NOK 20.2 billion at the end of 2015. This equates to 72 per cent of the total net asset value of Aker ASA and its holding companies.

The Industrial holdings business segment comprises the investments in Aker BP, Aker Solutions, Akastor, Kvaerner, Ocean Yield, and Aker BioMarine. Aker has a long-term investment horizon for these companies, and will remain invested for as long as it believes that it can generate greater shareholder value through its ownership than alternative owners could.

Aker is actively involved in the development of its six industrial portfolio companies, cooperating closely with each company’s board and management. Every investment is monitored by a dedicated investment team, and Aker has representatives on the various company boards.
