SHIPPING MERGERS AND TAKE-OVERS

A sign of all times, of the good times and of the bad times. Mergers and take-overs can re-shape the corporate map while shipping like other industries has seen all types of aggressive, peaceful, slow-steaming and forceful ones re-shaping the scene.

 

To mention a few of the MARine MERgers:

 

  • Fincantieri Spa (almost) take-over STX France shipyard             (2017)
  • Jo tankers taken-over by Stolt Nielsen                                          (2016)
  • MPC Group / Thien & Heyenga take-over of Ahrenkiel Group    (2014)
  • DNV-GL merger                                                                                (2013)
  • Carbon to Oxygen merger (C & O2 forming CO2)             (since the beginning of time)
  • Chevron-Texaco                                                                               (2000)
  • Exxon-Mobil                                                                                      (1998)
  • Columbia-Marlow                                                                      (contemplated)
  • Ballast Water to Management                                                        (2017)

 

Merger is to Amalgamation like Take-over is to Acquisition

 

Finally, an amalgamation on a happier note is with “Offshore and IT e-merging” of

OSEAN 360.
