       据韩国《每日商业新闻》英文版网站Pulse报道,本月15号,债务清算公司——韩国资产管理公司(以下简称KAMCO)将从6家航运公司手中收购20艘集装箱船和散货船,总价值3900亿韩元(约合3.44亿美元)。
 
       6家航运公司分别为森罗商船(SM Line)、Korea Shipping、大韩海运(Korea Line)、南星海运(Namsung Shipping)、Dooyang以及泛洋商船(Pan Ocean)。
 
       20艘船舶中,10艘原先隶属于现已破产的韩进海运。2016年8月底,韩进海运向韩国首尔中央地方法院提交破产保护申请。2017年2月,韩国首尔法院正式宣布,韩进海运破产。
 
       KAMCO将支付2300亿韩元,其余的1600亿由6家航运公司承担。
 
       3900亿韩元将投放到KAMCO船舶投资公司,用于组建20家特殊目的公司,并发放贷款。特殊目的公司接手船舶后,再次租予航运公司。
 
       Pulse提到,此举能使资金紧缺的航运公司有能力偿还债务,改善财务状况,完成短期贷款到长期贷款的转换。同时,政府的帮助能缓解韩国全新航运公司SM Line的金融压力。SM Line不久前收购了部分韩进主要资产。

KAMCO to take over 20 vessels owned by six carriers
 
South Korea’s debt clearing house, Korea Asset Management Corp. (KAMCO), will sign a contract to acquire 20 container and bulk vessels worth 390 billion won (U.S. $344 million) from six carriers on May 15, according to Pulse News, a website affiliated with Maeil Business News Korea.
 
The six carriers include SM Line Corp., Korea Shipping Co., Korea Line Corp., Namsung Shipping Co., Dooyang Ltd., and Pan Ocean Co.
 
Ten of the 20 vessels were previously owned by now-defunct Hanjin Shipping, which filed for court receivership in its native South Korea in late August 2016, and was officially declared bankrupt by a South Korean bankruptcy court in February 2017.
 
KAMCO will cover 230 billion won of the total price for the 20 vessels, and the six carriers will cover the remaining 160 billion won, Pulse reported.
 
KAMCO and the six carriers will then invest the 390 billion won into KAMCO Ship Investment Company, which will create 20 special purpose companies (SPCs) and lend money to them. The SPCs will take over the vessels, which will be leased back to the carriers.
 
With the fund, the cash-strapped carriers will be able to boost their financial health by paying off debts with high borrowing costs, and switching from short-term loans to long-term loans, Pulse said. In addition, Pulse noted the help from the government could help ease the financial troubles of SM Line, the nation’s newest carrier, which acquired some of the major assets of Hanjin Shipping.
