MAC aims to divest all capital in Hai An but only manages to sell 60%

Maritime Supply and Technical Services Joint Stock Company (HNX: MAC) is looking to sell its entire stake in Hai An Transport and Stevedoring Joint Stock Company (HOSE: HAH) from 03/01-02/02/2024. However, it was only able to sell approximately 60% of the registered quantity.


Specifically, MAC registered to sell 1.5 million shares, equivalent to the entire ownership stake in HAH (1.42%). However, during that period, MAC only managed to sell 620,000 shares, due to the price not meeting expectations. With an average price of nearly 38,450 dong per share during the period, MAC is estimated to have earned about 24 billion dong, reducing its ownership stake to 0.83%, equivalent to 880,000 shares.

In terms of the relationship, Mr. Tran Tien Dung, a member of HAH’s Board of Directors and also the CEO of MAC, is also the Chairman of TM Holding – an organization that currently holds nearly 4.6 million MAC shares, equivalent to over 30% of the capital.

Regarding HAH’s shareholder structure, at the end of January 2023, the company welcomed a major shareholder, Viconship (Container Vietnam Joint Stock Company, HOSE: VSC). Specifically, on January 30, VSC bought over 2.15 million HAH shares, increasing its ownership from nearly 3.13 million shares (a 2.96% stake) to 5.28 million shares (a 5% stake) and officially becoming a major shareholder. It is estimated that VSC spent about 86 billion dong to complete this transaction.

In another development, HAH recently announced the successful issuance of 500 billion dong in private convertible bonds to 4 institutional investors: SSI Asset Management Company purchased 80 bonds, Vietnam Growth Investment Fund L.P (VGIF) purchased 140 bonds, Daiwa-SSIAM Vietnam Growth Fund III L.P (DSVGF) purchased 113 bonds, and Japan South East Asia Finance Fund III L.P (JSEAFF) purchased 167 bonds.
