According to Friedrich Joussen, CEO of the travel group TUI, which owns 22 percent of German container carrier Hapag-Lloyd, a potential sale of the shares will not happen before the second half of 2014, at the earliest. The reason why the group has opted not to sell its shares, as otherwise announced, is that the German carrier will be to unstable in the time before Rolf Habben-Jansen moves from Maersk-owned Damco to Hapag-Lloyd in July next year, and the share will therefore decrease in value, says Friedrich Joussen according to Bloomberg.
