The sale of its stake in Dansk Supermarked Group to the Salling Group and the divestment of the supertanker fleet of 15 VLCC's to Euronav during the past weeks are just the latest examples of A.P. Moeller-Maersk's divestments, though they also represent the two biggest sales.












The Group has sold a total of 26 companies and stakes in the period from 2007 to 2014, according to a survey by analyst Alphaliner, which has identified a series of more or less known companies that have been divested over the past seven years.






The sale of its 68 percent stake to the Salling Group and the VLCC fleet divestment follow the sale of Maersk Tankers' VLGC fleet (Very Large Gas Carriers) to BW Group in May 2013, just as Maersk Tankers also sold its 11 Handygas ships to Navigator Gas in November 2012.





In addition to the sale of the company's 31.3 percent stake in DFDS in September 2013 the list includes a series of industry and transport companies.








Find the list below and here:














And another company can be added to the list, as it was announced yesterday, Monday, that SH Group acquires ownership of the lifeboat division Boat-in-A-Box from Nadiro, which was till now owned in collaboration with A.P. Moeller-Maersk.

Mangoes date back 65 million years according to research ...

Experts at the Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeobotany (BSIP) here have traced the origin of mango to the hills of Meghalaya, India from a 65 million year-old fossil of a mango leaf. 





The earlier fossil records of mango (Mangifera indica) from the Northeast and elsewhere were 25 to 30 million years old. The 'carbonized leaf fossil' from Damalgiri area of Meghalaya hills, believed to be a mango tree from the peninsular India, was found by Dr R. C. Mehrotra, senior scientist, BSIP and his colleagues. 




After careful analysis of the fossil of the mango leaf and leaves of modern plants, the BISP scientist found many of the fossil leaf characters to be similar to mangifera.


An extensive study of the anatomy and morphology of several modern-day species of the genus mangifera with the fossil samples had reinforced the concept that its centre of origin is Northeast India, from where it spread into neighbouring areas, says Dr. Mehrotra.
