Olympic bondholders agree to conversion

Norwegian OSV operator Olympic Shipping has said all key parties have agreed on its restructuring whereby two bond issues will be converted in the coming days.

Under a significant restructuring announced in December last year Olympic has sold four ships, spun off its subsea division and worked up $47m in fresh capital to give the group the liquidity it needs to survive through to the end of the decade.
