Based on the 9.5 million shares outstanding MC Shipping reported as of April 27, the deal is worth $135.5 million. Including assumed debt and other items, MC Shipping said the total transaction value is about $284 million. The company said it will hold a special shareholder meeting Sept. 5 to vote on the deal. If shareholders approve the deal, the merger would close immediately afterward. Source: AP
