Neptune Orient Lines
French container shipping giant CMA CGM has launched an all-cash voluntary conditional general offer for all outstanding shares of Neptune Orient Lines (NOL) other than those it already owns, controls or has agreed to acquire.
The move comes after CMA CGM got the approvals it needed from the anti-trust authorities in the European Union and China.
The offer price is $1.30 for each NOL share, which CMA CGM said it does not intend to raise.
CMA CGM owns 10.5 per cent of all NOL shares, and intends to delist and privatise NOL. Majority stakeholder Temasek Holdings, which owns 67 per cent, has agreed to sell its shares.
