Minoan Lines

I note from a recent Brochure obtained from Minoan Lines that the have been taken over by the Italian Company "Grimaldi Lines".

Dont recollect reading or hearing on the media that Minoan Lines were in Financial trouble.

Aquisition was by way of a share buy-up as a 'strategic move' by Grimaldi, as opposed to a financial bail-out. Seems Grimaldi have been gradually buying shares for some time.
