Norway's Frontline Finally Gets Sweden's ICB

Friday, September 24, 1999

An agreement between Frontline, ICB and ICB's main shareholder, Greek shipowner John Angelicoussis, values ICB at about 4.6 billion crowns and ends a stalemate over ownership. Bermuda-registered Frontline launched a hostile takeover bid for ICB in September 1997 with the aim of creating one of the world's largest quoted tanker companies, part of the consolidation emerging in the highly fragmented tanker industry.
