FerryViking Line Abp on18 November 2022, acquired 17.1 % of the shares in Rederiaktiebolaget Eckerö for EUR 30/share, a total sum of EUR 10,269,300.

Viking Line received information that a larger stake in Rederiaktiebolaget Eckerö was for sale. In order to ensure that the share ownership stays on Åland, Viking Line chose to acquire the post.

"Eckerö is a well-run and well-regarded shipping company whose main ownership is welcome to remain on the Åland Islands," says Jan Hanses, Viking Line’s president and CEO.

The acquisition of the shares does not give reason to reconsider Viking Line's profit forecast for 2022 and is financed with own cash resources.
