Merger Talks Underway between Two Major Shipping Lines

Merger Talks Underway between Two Major Shipping Lines
Danny Gill

According to a recent Hapag-Lloyd press release, Hapag-Lloyd AG (HL) and United Arab Shipping Company SAG (UASC) are currently discussing forms of cooperation including a potential combination of their mutual container shipping operations.

In case of a business combination, the parties are basing their discussions on a relative valuation of the two businesses at 72% (HL) and 28% (UASC), subject to a mutually satisfactory completion of the negotiations and the mutual due diligence exercise. To date, the discussions conducted between the two carriers have not resulted in any binding agreement and no assurance can be given that these discussions will lead to a definitive agreement. If the deal does go through, the two companies could form the world’s fourth-largest container shipping company.
