HOUSTON, Dec. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Kirby Corporation ("Kirby") (NYSE: KEX) today announced the purchase of the coastwise tank barge fleet of Seaboats, Inc. and affiliated companies consisting of three 80,000 barrel coastwise tank barge and tug units for $42.3 million in cash. The three coastwise tank barge and tug units currently operate along the East Coast and have an average age of five years. Financing of the purchase was through Kirby's $250 million revolving credit facility.

Joe Pyne, Kirby's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "The purchase of Seaboats' coastwise fleet consisting of three 80,000 barrel tank barge units furthers our objective of growing our offshore tank barge fleet. The three tank barges are sister barges, built to the same design as our four 80,000 barrel tank barges and will expand our fleet capacity, service capabilities to our customers and provide additional flexibility."

Kirby Corporation, based in Houston, Texas, is the nation's largest domestic tank barge operator, transporting bulk liquid products throughout the Mississippi River System, the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway, coastwise along all three United States coasts and in Alaska and Hawaii. Kirby transports petrochemicals, black oil products, refined petroleum products and agricultural chemicals by tank barge. Through the diesel engine services segment, Kirby provides after-market service for medium-speed and high-speed diesel engines and reduction gears used in marine and power generation applications. Kirby also distributes and services high-speed diesel engines, transmissions, pumps, compression products, and manufactures oilfield service equipment, including hydraulic fracturing equipment, for land-based pressure pumping and oilfield service markets.
