Britain's Associated British Ports Holdings Plc plans to sell Red Funnel Group, its ferry and towage business
. "Red Funnel is an excellent operation and will only be sold if an adequate offer is received that reflects the true value of its potential future earnings," Chief Executive Bo Lerenius said in a statement. Red Funnel, which runs ferries between Southampton on the English south coast and the Isle
of Wight, is forecasting profits of 8.5 million pounds on turnover of 26.7 million for the year ending December 31, 2000.
