Copenhagen: Making the most of the current tanker bull run, Hafnia Tankers is readying its long awaited New York initial public offering. The OTC-listed product tanker specialist has registered with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to push ahead with an IPO.

The number of common shares to be offered and the price range for the proposed offering have not yet been determined, the company said in a release.

Hafnia’s fleet stands at 28 ships, of which 22 are owned and 14 newbuilds due for delivery this year and next.
