    Clarkson in talks to acquire RS Platou

    News // November 14, 2014

    Clarkson PLC has announced that it is in discussions with the board of RS Platou regarding the possible acquisition of all of the issued share capital of Platou.
     
    Given the complementary activities, in terms of geographic locations, operations and industry specialisation, the boards of Clarksons and Platou believe the enhanced offering of the combined business positions the enlarged group as a leading integrated global shipping and offshore group.

    Said Clarksons: "Whilst discussions regarding the combination of these two businesses continue, there can be no certainty that any transaction will occur."
