Maersk Chairman considers more divestments

In spite of the fact that Maersk has divested Danske Bank and Dansk Supermarked and is considering further divestments, Maersk continues to be a global conglomerate in order to, among other things, spread the risk, according to chairman Michael Pram Rasmussen.

Maersk is a global conglomerate and will remain to be so, despite the divestments of Dansk Supermarked and Danske Bank, and in spite of the considerations of further divestments, emphasized Chairman of the Board, Michael Pram Rasmussen, in his speech at the group's general assembly in Copenhagen Monday morning.

"Are we then justified in saying this year that we have maintained this strategy, considering that we have divested Dansk Supermarked and Danske Bank, sold a number of smaller companies and are considering additional sales? Yes, we are a Conglomerate. We have simply adjusted our portfolio so that we have an even better opportunity to focus our efforts on the parts of the Group that make up our core business," said Michael Pram Rasmussen, who pointed to spreading risk as one of the significant explanations for the conglomerate's strength.
