Samherji Holding, a company united with Samherji, has expanded its holding in salmon distributor Eimskip by 3.05% up to 30.11%.

“Eimskip is majority-owned by Icelandic pension funds that collectively hold more than 50% of the share capital. It is my understanding that the Board of Directors and the management of Eimskip have been aligned in the recent structural and operational changes. Samherji Holding believes Eimskip is well fit to continue to its listing on the Icelandic Stock Exchange. We hope that the majority of current shareholders, both large and small, share that belief with us and will continue to support the development of Eimskip in the years to come,” says Björgólfur Jóhannsson, the interim CEO of Samherji.

Fish distributor Eimskip is one of the oldest shipping companies in Iceland, founded in 1914.
