“With the signing of Íslandsbanki and Straumur Investment Bank as our primary advisors, we have taken the next step in preparing the Company for public listing. Despite a challenging operational environment in the transportation sector, the Company’s results have been sound and in line with projections. We believe Eimskip’s listing to be a highly positive event for the Company and its shareholders, in addition to making it an attractive option for new investors.”

Birna Einarsdóttir, CEO of Íslandsbanki:
„Historically, Íslandsbanki and Eimskip have enjoyed a fruitful and successful relationship. It is therefore a privilege to participate in the Company’s public listing and future development.”
