J. Lauritzen sells million-dollar claim against Korean carrier

J. Lauritzen has sold its claim against the estate of Korean STX for a net effect of around USD 30 million, somewhat less than the size of the original claim, Lauritzen's CEO tells ShippingWatch.

J. Lauritzen was hit hard when Korean carrier STX Pan Ocean filed for bankruptcy in early 2013 and returned two of J. Lauritzen's Capesize ships - which were placed with STX on long-term charter contracts - significantly ahead of time.

Since then, J. Lauritzen has had a claim in the STX Pan Ocean estate, and the carrier has now sold that claim, CEO Jan Kastrup-Nielsen tells ShippingWatch after the company announced the sale in a brief to the stock exchange.
