Merger by incorporation of Anek Lines into Attica Holdings

Full repayment of Anek's creditors envisaged

The merger project between the Greek shipowning group is taking shape Attica Holdings and compatriot Anek Lines. The first, in fact, has reached an agreement with the shareholders and the largest creditors of the Anek, lenders that include Piraeus Bank and Alpha Bank. The agreement provides for the merger by incorporation of Anek with the shareholders of the latter who will receive 0.1217 new ordinary shares of Attica for each ordinary or preferred share of Anek in their possession, as well as the payment of 80 million euros for the full repayment of creditors.

The agreement will now be submitted to the councils of administration of the two companies and then to the vote of the respective shareholders' meetings. The agreement will be subject also to the green light of the Greek antitrust authority.

Attica operates scheduled maritime services for passengers and rolling stock under the brands Superfast Ferries, Blue Star Ferries, Hellenic Seaways and Africa Morocco Link which mainly use the ships on Greek domestic routes on international routes in the Adriatic between Greek and Italian ports and in the connection between Morocco and Spain on the Tangier-Algeciras route. Many of the sea lines operated by compatriot Anek Lines overlap with those of the Attica group, starting from the international ones between Greece and Italy where they land at the same ports of Bari, Ancona and Venice, but also at national level.
