  • Pan Ocean a retrouvé un second souffle
    Le grand armement sud-coréen Pan Ocean Shipping évolue désormais dans des eaux plus calmes, un accord ayant été conclu avec ses créanciers par lequel des dettes sont converties en titres pour un montant de 177 millions d’USD. Les créanciers ont également accepté le plan de restructuration. Par cet accord, les banques, à savoir Korea Development Bank, Korea Exchange Bank, Hanvit Bank et Chohung Bank, sont devenues les actionnaires majoritaires et contrôlent donc désormais cette entreprise fondée en 1966, mais qui était placée sous contrôle juridique depuis 1993. Entre-temps, Pan Ocean a effacé des dettes pour un montant de 770 mio. de’USD dans le cadre d’un plan de réorganisation sur de huit ans.
  • “Il reste toujours de la marge pour continuer à réduire les coûts”
    L’année écoulée a été bonne pour DAF, qui a contribué aux bénéfices de Paccar. Cette année-ci, on peut s’attendre à une forte baisse du marché, mais une guerre des prix semble peu probable. C’est ce que nous a déclaré dans une interview exclusive James G. Cardillo, le président de DAF Trucks, en marge du salon RAI à Amsterdam. Selon lui, le constructeur continuera à réduire ses coûts en permanence, car il y a toujours une marge de manoeuvre pour poursuivre les efforts en la matière. Un des moyens utilisés sera le développement de synergies avec Kenworth et Peterbilt. Cardillo n’exclut pas que cela pourra même se faire dans le domaine des moteurs, même si dans l’état actuel des choses, c’est peu probable.
