Hapag-Lloyd AG Key Developments

Hapag-Lloyd Secures Long-Term Financing for Five 10,500 TEU New-Built Vessels and Increases Liquidity Reserve

Hapag-Lloyd and a banking syndicate signed a USD 372 million facility agreement with a term of 12 years yesterday. The Company will use the loan to finance five new vessels which were ordered in April 2015 for delivery between October 2016 and May 2017. The total investment volume of the order lies in the mid three-digit million USD range. The five ordered vessels will be deployed primarily on the South American routes and will have a capacity of 10,500 standard containers (TEU) each. With 2,100 reefers plugs each, the vessels are particularly suitable to carry perishable goods. The banking syndicate was led by joint bookrunners Credit Agricole, DNB, HSBC and UniCredit. As the order was placed with a Korean shipyard, the Korean Export Credit Agencies K-sure and KEXIM agreed to provide financing support for Hapag-Lloyd to facilitate the investment with the Korean yard and will thereby support the overall financing. Hapag-Lloyd decided in parallel to increase its existing revolving credit facility with the financing banking syndicate from USD 95 million to USD 200 million in order to strengthen its liquidity reserves at attractive financing conditions.

Hapag-Lloyd Seeks Acquisition

Hapag-Lloyd AG plans on carrying out acquisitions in order to accelerate its growth after its planned initial public offering, German magazine Bilanz reported. Hapag-Lloyd will scan the market for suitable takeover targets, seeking to raise its profits and expand its share in large markets, such as India.

Hapag-Lloyd Plans For IPO

Hapag-Lloyd AG plans to raise $500 million in new funds by going public by the end of 2015. Hapag-Lloyd intends to list its shares on the regulated markets of the Frankfurt and Hamburg stock exchanges, it said in a statement. The initial public offering was expected to raise total gross proceeds in the equivalent euro amount of $500 million with $400 million stemming from the sale of new shares to retail and institutional investors. Hapag-Lloyd has planned an IPO several times in the past, but postponed it.
