2022: So far In Venture Capital

Global investment in 2022 has been majorly dominated by North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific, whereas the Middle East, and South and Central America have recorded low investments comparatively. In light of this, Europe and North America have been identified as the major destinations for Private Equity and Venture Capital (PE/VC) investments.   GlobalData’s whitepaper analyzes which sectors PE/VC firms have been investing in, looking at Technology, Media, and Telecom, with these sectors recording $356 billion and a deal volume of over 10,000 deals in 2022. Healthcare, Financial Services, Business & Consumer Services, and Construction sectors have also seen high investment activity by PE/VC firms, recording a deal value of over $70 billion each.   But what can this mean for you?   Understand how the Deals Database on GlobalData Explorer can be leveraged to:

RCL operates a fleet of 41 ships with a total capacity of 94,000 passengers under five lines including Azamara Cruises, Celebrity Cruises, CDF Croisières de France, Pullmantur and Royal Caribbean International.

The contract will include two Royal Caribbean cruise ships to undergo major revitalisation at Sembawang Shipyard and a third ship for drydocking and repairs between 2013 and 2014.

Sembcorp estimates that Sembawang Shipyard will achieve sales worth between $50m and $70m for the initial repair and refurbishment work, depending on the range of repairs and upgrading packages for the ships.

Royal Caribbean Cruises vice president of technical projects and newbuildings Kevin Douglas said: "The selection of Sembawang Shipyard as our partner in the Far East is in line with Royal Caribbean’s strategy to grow our cruise business in Asia, as we see Asia, in particular China and Singapore, as our key market."

Sembawang Shipyard executive director Wong Lee-Lin said the shipyard had repaired and upgraded about 150 passenger ships since 1970.

"Sembawang Shipyard has over the recent few years focused strongly on the development of our fast-growing niche markets, one of which is the cruise ship repairs/upgrades and conversion market," Lee-Lin said. "We have developed a ‘cruise ship culture’ and a workforce with the right attitude, training and experience to successfully deliver cruise ships on schedule and to high quality, health, environment and safety standards."

The contract also includes joint planning, information and experience sharing, and the use of complementary resources to reach sustainable targets in the areas of health, safety and environment (HSE), logistics management, quality, cost-efficiency and on-schedule deliveries.

Earlier in 2012, Sembawang Shipyard carried out a $54m revitalisation of Royal Caribbean’s Rhapsody of the Seas.
