Analyst: More Maersk companies could be in play

It is far from certain that the sale of Dansk Supermarked Group marks the end of Maersk's efforts to weed out among its businesses, says Frode Mørkedal of Platou. He points to Danske Bank and Svitzer as potential divestment prospects.

With the sale of its stake in Dansk Supermarked Group Maersk has now started in earnest to divest assets that fall outside of the Group's core businesses. And the future could easily hold further divestments, analyst Frode Mørkedal of Platou tells ShippingWatch. Even though Group CEO Nils Smedegaard Andersen denies that Danske Bank - which also lies beyond the core businesses - could be next in line, this stake could represent a potential divestment, he says:

"They've said the same thing about Dansk Supermarked in the past, so it's possible that Danske Bank could be sold. I think that's going to be the next step."
