Gener8 Maritime

Led by Peter Georgiopoulos, Gener8 is one of the world’s largest VLCC owners. The New York-based company resulted from the merger between General Maritime and Navig8 Crude Tankers, the latter sponsored by Navi8 Group, one of the largest pool managers worldwide. The company owned 30 vessels as of early May, including 21 VLCCs and other smaller ones. It is being acquired by Euronav.

Recent performance

Gener8 has stopped reporting its financial results as it is being acquired by Euronav.

The company’s sale to Euronav is expected to be completed by the end of June 2018.

Under the terms of the merger, there will be 0.7272 Euronav shares exchanged for each Gener8 share, leading to the issuance of about 60.9m new Euronav shares to the latter’s stakeholders. 

When completed, Euronav will own a 72% stake in the combined tanker giant, the world’s largest crude carrier by capacity, while Gener8 will own the rest, based on each company’s fully diluted share capitals.
