VLCC purchase pulls down Euronav

Belgian Euronav finished the 3rd quarter with a USD 20.6 million deficit. More than half of this loss is attributed to the purchase of Maersk's VLCC fleet, but the carrier expects a strong finish to the year.

Belgian tanker carrier Euronav, which on Wednesday postponed a planned IPO on the New York Stock Exchange due to the unfavorable share climate, suffered a USD 20.6 million net deficit in the 3rd quarter.
