Recent results: As of Q1 management noted continued growth in Lease and Operate cash flows on the back of the delivery of Cidade de Mancá over the period, with two further deliveries due by mid-year. SBM, like its peers is also remaining focused on cost management in the wake of a lower oil price environment
