Alm.Brand: Maersk uses new openness to attract investors

A. P. Moeller-Maersk’s first-ever capital markets day this Tuesday will make it easier for the company to find capital for new investments. The event will also bring interesting details regarding Maersk Oil, say two stock analysts to ShippingWatch.

Maersk’s first-ever capital markets day on Tuesday next week will put the company in a better position when it goes looking for new capital, says Jesper Christensen, analyst at Alm. Brand Markets. Several analysts expect that the company will use the capital markets day to provide more information regarding Maersk Oil, in particular, than has been the case earlier.

“First of all, they need to go out in the market to secure capital in the future. It’s not so long ago that they successfully issued a bond, and when they start making investments in Chissonga and Johan Sverdrup, it’s not unrealistic that they will have to start going into the market frequently to secure capital. I expect they’ll do that by issuing bonds. In this regard, it’s a good thing to have a more accessible public profile, and to provide the public with more information. So I think this will put them in a better position in relation to future and current bond investors,” says Jesper Christensen to ShippingWatch.
