Hapag-Lloyd Raising New Funds after Merger with UASC

first_imgGerman carrier Hapag-Lloyd will carry out a capital increase, agreed upon as part of its merger with United Arab Shipping Company (UASC), with the gross proceeds expected to reach EUR 352 million (USD 414 million).The company said that the expected gross issue proceeds from the capital increase would primarily be used for the repayment of debt as well as general corporate purposes.“Following the successful merger with UASC, we will use the capital increase to strengthen our capital structure and to use the proceeds to reduce the leverage of the company. This enables us to focus on enhancing our strategic and operating objectives,” Rolf Habben Jansen, CEO of Hapag-Lloyd AG, said.Following the the official merger of the two companies in May 2017, the shareholders approved new authorised share capital for a capital increase.The capital increase is backstopped by the primary shareholders CSAV Germany Container Holding GmbH, Kuehne Maritime GmbH, Qatar Holding Germany GmbH and The Public Investment Fund of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for a total of EUR 352 million.They have committed to exercise their subscription rights and to acquire new shares that are not acquired by other shareholders.The company’s share capital of EUR 164,042,940.00 will increase by EUR 11,717,353.00 to EUR 175,760,293.00 by issuing 11,717,353 new no-par shares in exchange for cash while maintaining the shareholders’ subscription rights. The new shares became eligible for dividends on January 1, 2017 and shall be offered to all shareholders at a subscription price of EUR 30.00 and a ratio of 14:1 per share.The subscription period for the shareholders is expected to start on 2 October 2017 and end on 16 October 2017.Separately, Hapag-Lloyd will finalize its comprehensive newbuild programme by taking delivery of the 15,000 TEU containership Al Jmeliyah at the shipyard of Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries (HSHI) in South Korea on September 28.Classed as an ultra-large container vessel (ULCV), the boxship giant is scheduled to start operating this weekend on the FE4 service of THE Alliance between Asia and Northern Europe, just like its predecessor, the Afif, which was delivered in July.The 368-metre-long Al Jmeliyah, which features 153,148 tonnes, is the last in a series of 17 newbuilds contracted to HSHI by UASC in the summer of 2013. The series comprised eleven 15,000 TEU and six 19,900 TEU ships, the first of which was delivered in 2015.Following the merger with Hapag-Lloyd at the end of May this year, these units became a part of the Hapag-Lloyd fleet, which currently consists of 219 ships, making Hapag-Lloyd the fifth-largest liner shipping company in the world.Image Courtesy: Hapag-Lloydlast_img read more

Will Smith leads Dodgers’ home run barrage in Miami

first_imgThe rookie right-hander retired the first nine batters he faced and didn’t allow a ball hit out of the infield until the fourth inning. May gave up just one run on three hits in 5 2/3 innings earning his first major-league win.“Dustin didn’t get ahead as much as he did his last start, wasn’t as sharp,” Roberts said.“In spurts there were some good throws in there. Getting ahead, he didn’t do as good a job. But when you don’t have your best stuff or your best command, to still go out there and put up zeroes, that’s where you have to tip your hat to a young player like Dustin.”It remains to be seen how May might fare in October — if given the chance this year. But August has been a breeze.Since being promoted from Triple-A at the start of the month, May has a 2.65 ERA and 1.18 WHIP over three starts with 15 strikeouts and just two walks in his first 17 big-league innings.“That they’re just normal people too. They get out like everybody else,” May said when asked what he had learned about big-league hitters in that time. “The only real difference is they hit the mistakes a little bit harder. So I just have to minimize the mistakes on my end.” The man Smith passed in both categories, Cody Bellinger, also homered Tuesday, matching his rookie season total (39) with 41 games to go.Justin Turner, Corey Seager and Matt Beaty also hit home runs as the Dodgers pounded Marlins pitchers. The first three (Jordan Yamamoto, Wei-Yin Chen and Austin Brice) didn’t give up a single hit — but gave up six home runs and five doubles (three to A.J. Pollock).The Dodgers didn’t get a single until the 12th of their 15 hits in the game (a two-out base hit by Kristopher Negron in the ninth) and that was immediately followed by another double, Ferguson’s, and the only triple of the night. Three runs scored when Marlins center fielder Lewis Brinson made an unsuccessful dive for Beaty’s line drive, allowing three runs to score.All of that made maintaining his curly locks in the Miami humidity Dustin May’s only real worry.Related Articles Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start It ended with catchers pitching for both teams. Bryan Holaday got the last out in the top of the ninth becoming the only one of six Marlins pitchers to record an out and not give up a run. Russell Martin topped that, closing out the game with a scoreless bottom of the ninth — maintaining his career 0.00 ERA after three appearances.“It was as good of a night as we’ve had all year and that’s saying a lot,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said of the offensive assault which included back-to-back home runs on two occasions. “We only had two singles and that didn’t come until the ninth inning. Just really good at-bats all around to a man, really.“It’s just a relentless approach.”Rookie catcher Will Smith hit two of the Dodgers’ six home runs and drove in three of the runs. The two-homer game was Smith’s first, yet another item checked off his big-league bucket list. His nine home runs and 26 RBI are the most over the first 23 games of a career by anyone in franchise history — more of an offensive impact than the Dodgers could rightfully have expected.“Yeah, I guess so, I mean, up to this point as far as the production. You know you can bet on the makeup and the work ethic,” Roberts said. “He’s just very confident right now. He stays in the strike zone, has a really good plan every time he steps in the box and when he gets a pitch he’s not missing it.” Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco center_img Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire PreviousLos Angeles Dodgers’ Will Smith watches his solo home run during the fourth inning of the team’s baseball game against the Miami Marlins, Tuesday, Aug. 13, 2019, in Miami.

Nine different Dodgers had at least one extra-base hit — including reliever Caleb Ferguson who now has two major-league hits to cherish.The lopsided evening played out in front of announced crowd of 8,729 fans — many of them wearing Dodgers blue and not Marlins … whatever their latest team color is.
