HMM:90亿融资需求报道不属实

       近期有报道称,韩国海运承运商现代商船(HMM)在未来五年内有近90亿美元的融资需求,以扩大公司规模并发展成为世界前十的集装箱船公司。而该公司于本周否认了这个消息,表示该报道并不属实。
 
       现代商船此番回应是针对本周早些时候《韩国商业》的一片报道。该报道称,作为全球运力排名第15的集装箱船公司,现代商船将向由国家支持的韩国开发银行申请89亿美元的五年期贷款,以期成长为世界第八大集装箱船公司。
 
       据《韩国商业》透露,融得的资金中将有50亿美元的现金将用于购置大型新集装箱货轮,约30亿美元用于购买集装箱,另外剩下的90万美元用于收购海外集装箱码头。
 
       然而,现代商船代表在对行业刊物Splash 24/7作评论时对该报道泼了冷水,称虽然现代商船已经与行业专家复核并讨论了进一步发展为全球海运承运商的各种战略,但是890万美元这个数字却是空穴来风。
 
       “关于中长期投资所需投资的确切数额,包括收购新船、新的集装箱船,公司内部并没有决议。并且公司并没有向韩国发展银行提出任何申请。”

HMM denies reports of $9b growth funding request
 
Recent reports that South Korean ocean carrier Hyundai Merchant Marine (HMM) is asking for almost $9 billion in funding over the next five years to expand and grow the company into a top 10 container line simply aren't accurate, the company said this week.
   
The rejoinder came in response to a Business Korea article earlier this week reporting that HMM, the world’s 15th largest container line in terms of vessel capacity, is asking for $8.9 billion in funding from state backed Korea Development Bank through 2022 in order to grow into the eighth-largest container line.
   
According to Business Korea, $5 billion of the cash infusion would be spent on large new boxships, while about $3 billion would be dedicated to buying containers and $900,000 would be earmarked for the takeover of overseas container terminals.
   
But in comments to industry publication Splash 24/7, an HMM representative threw cold water on the report, saying that although HMM has reviewed and discussed various ways with industry experts to grow further as a global carrier, the $8.9 million figure is false.
   
“There has been no internal decision on the exact amount on the investment needed for mid- and long-term investment including acquiring new vessels, new containerships and HMM has not made any request to KDB,”
