Norwegian Frontline 2012 is preparing to seek a listing on the New York Stock Exchange a year from now, after presenting a net profit of USD 23.9 million in the 3rd quarter 2013.

Rapidly growing Fredriksen-owned carrier Frontline 2012 continued the solid developments from the previous quarter and achieved a net profit of USD 23.9 million in the 3rd quarter 2013.

The shipping company has now launched a process aimed at a listing on the New York Stock Exchange in the 3rd quarter of next year, according to the carrier's interim report.
