MSC a step closer to ‘unique’ deal with Messina

The Swiss-headquartered group MSChas has signed a memorandum to acquire a 40% stake in the Genoa-based Messina Group, although neither party confirmed the deal when contacted by Splash.

This deal comes a few days after a meeting held with the senior management from MSC, Messina and lender Banca Carige in Genoa.

The deal will be fully finalized shortly, Splash understands, and represents another sign of consolidation in the Italian shipping sector.

“For MSC the acquisition would be unique, as it is accustomed to grow organically,” underlines Dynaliners’ weekly report.
