Tanker rates need to improve before Torm launches IPO

Jacob Meldgaard CEO Torm Tanker:

Torm CEO Jacob Meldgaard has not shelved the IPO plans even though the carrier suffered a big deficit of USD 142 million for the year after a fleet impairment of USD 185 million. But the tanker rates will need to improve and oil stockpiles go down before a listing becomes relevant, he tells ShippingWatch.

Tanker CEOs look with pessimism at 2017

The fourth quarter 2016 did not end well. This is the concurrent assessment from the head honchos of tanker; CEO of Euronav, Paddy Rodgers, and CEO of Torm, Jacob Meldgaard. And 2017 looks set to be weighed down by the many new vessels entering the fleet.

J. Lauritzen deems it visionary of Maersk to recycle vessels in Alang. If India is going to improve, the carriers have to put on the pressure, the bulk carrier tells ShippingWatch. Norden cites the Hong Kong Convention, just as Maersk does. Torm is working on its scrapping policy.

Weak tanker market trips up Torm's IPO plans

Jacob Meldgaard CEO Torm Tanker:

The time is not right for Torm to go public on the New York Stock Exchange. The boom in the product tanker market is slowing down and investors are hesitating. But the carrier is ready as soon as things turn around, says CEO Jacob Meldgaard to ShippingWatch.

Torm and Hafnia are investor hunting on Park Ave

Over the next few days, basically every living entity in tanker carriers and potential investors will meet in New York at an event oddly reminiscent of speed-dating. The equity funds on Park Avenue are immensely popular right now, and carriers such as Torm and Hafnia are itching for an IPO.
