Press Release

Höegh Autoliners is pleased to announce that it will today become listed on the main market of Oslo Stock Exchange (OSE). The company’s shares have been listed on Euronext Growth Oslo since 29 November 2021 and will as of today start trading on the Oslo Stock Exchange.

In 2021, Höegh Autoliners reached several significant milestones. The company launched its zero carbon ready Aurora class vessel design and green fleet renewal program as well as completing its first carbon neutral voyage. Additionally, it executed the sale of its logistics assets, refinanced its existing debts, and was admitted to trading on Euronext Growth Oslo.

“Our commitment to the maritime industry started almost a century ago, so this is a proud moment for Höegh Autoliners and an important milestone in the history of the company. Joining the main market of the Oslo Stock Exchange emphasises our strong position and robust business model,” says Leif O. Høegh, Höegh Autoliners Chair.

Listing on Oslo Stock Exchange will expand Höegh Autoliners’ exposure to a wider range of investors which could further enhance liquidity of the stock. With the uplisting Höegh Autoliners seeks to create long-term shareholder value and position the company for future growth.

“This marks an important step in our long-term commitment to be the leader in zero emissions shipping and supporting the decarbonisation of our customers’ supply chain. I would like to thank our people, customers, investors, and partners for contributing to our success. I am impressed with the many achievements we have reached in a short amount of time, which speaks volumes of the company’s people and the effort they have put in to making it all possible,” says CEO of Höegh Autoliners, Andreas Enger.

Höegh Autoliners recently announced that it signed a contract to build an additional four new multi-fuel and zero carbon ready Aurora class vessels, extending its Aurora class newbuilding program to eight vessels, all of which will be built by China Merchants Heavy Industry (Jiangsu) Co., Ltd. (CMHI) with MAN providing the main engine and the bridge system supplied by Kongsberg.

The Aurora class will also have DNV’s “ammonia ready” and “methanol ready” notations and be the first vessels in the segment to be ready for operation on carbon neutral ammonia. The vessels can transport up to 9,100 cars making it the world’s largest and most environmentally friendly car carrier ever built.

“We don’t just talk about sustainability and becoming green. We act. Together with our customers and trusted partners, we are constantly taking significant strides to making the maritime industry more sustainable and meeting our net zero emissions target by 2040,” concludes Andreas Enger.
