Ane Mærsk Mc-Kinney Uggla comments on new strategy

The Chairman of A.P. Møller Holding A/S, Ane Mærsk Mc-Kinney Uggla, made the following comment on the new strategy of A.P. Møller – Mærsk A/S.

Ane Uggla

A.P. Møller Holding was established mainly to safeguard the long term viability of the A.P. Møller - Mærsk activities. Since then, A.P. Møller Holding has developed its considerations about the future of A.P. Møller - Mærsk. These have been given to the Board of Directors of A.P. Møller – Mærsk A/S.

Historically the Mærsk activities’ strategy and structure have always undergone changes. And these changes will continue in order to stay agile.

While we are rooted in shipping and energy, we must never become static in a dynamic world. We therefore welcome the new strategy and structure announced by the A.P. Møller - Mærsk A/S. A.P. Møller Holding will continue to be an active and influential owner of A.P. Møller - Mærsk activities, applying our core values and name where relevant; and as stated in the trust deed of the A.P. Møller Foundation.

This means that we see A.P. Møller Holding remaining as an influential shareholder in business units undergoing separate structural changes: they will continue to be part of the A.P. Møller family.
