China Ocean Shipping (Group) Company Key Developments

COSCO Reportedly Eyes TRAINOSE

China Ocean Shipping (Group) Company (COSCO) is expected to make an offer for TRAINOSE. The acquisition will give COSCO connections to the Suez Canal and rail links to the Balkans and central and Eastern Europe. COSCO's focus on Greece is about building market share at a time of anguish in a bruised and oversupplied shipping sector, industry sources said. "COSCO and Watco Companies, LLC are interested in TRAINOSE," said the source, who declined to be identified. "There is also a Greek group which is interested and is looking for a partner." Officials in Greece have said it is too early to comment on specifics, but a sale is almost inevitable. Reuters added that COSCO spokeswoman declined to comment on prospective bids for other Greek assets. She said the firm believed buying Piraeus would improve the port's competitiveness and efficiency, but declined to elaborate on detailed plans. Watco could not be reached for comment and the source did not identify the Greek group.

COSCO Sole Bidder For Piraeus Port Authority

China COSCO Holdings Company Limited (SEHK:1919) is the sole bidder for 51% stake in Piraeus Port Authority SA (ATSE:PPA), the privatization agency said. The privatization agency said it will ask the bidder to raise its offer. China Ocean Shipping (Group) Company is on track to acquire 51% of Piraeus Port Authority's outstanding shares for €300 million to €400 million.

Cosco, China Shipping Extend Merger Talks Into January 2016
