CARGOTEC CORPORATION, STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE, 18 JULY 2014 AT 11.55 (EEST)
Cargotec has decided to reverse the listing of MacGregor
Cargotec has decided to reverse earlier plans to separately list its MacGregor business. Cargotec's Board of Directors expects that shareholder value will be best created by fully focusing on the integration of newly acquired businesses into MacGregor and by delivering profitable growth within the new MacGregor as part of the overall Cargotec portfolio.
MacGregor is seen as a key value driver for Cargotec with a broad range of competitive solutions. The existing strategy is successfully implemented by growing its merchant business and entering to additional offshore markets with its two recent acquisitions Hatlapa and Aker Solutions' former mooring and loading systems unit.
