E24’s investor listings show that.

The Blueberry Capital fund, managed by Marius Borthen, has been subject to a sharp sell-off. The listings show that as of mid-July, the number of fund shares had fallen from 800,000 shares to 25,000 shares.

The Lauro family, a large shipping company, bought an additional 1.33 million shares and now owns 9.46 million shares worth about 220 million.

The family, which on the eve of August announced a 10% stake in Nourse, has recently been aggressive in buying shares. They now own more than 14% of the company, but have denied that a hostile takeover is imminent.

The purchases were made while Scandinavian’s share was on an upward trajectory. So far this year, the share is up 195 percent, while the increase has been 15 percent in the past three months.

The only shareholder with more Scandinavian shares is CEO and founder Björn Tore Larsen with just under 20 percent.

The purchases were made through the family company Scorpio Holdings. Scorpio Group is a Monaco-based company owned by the family of its Italian president, Emanuele Lauro.

They’re a shipping family, and so is Lauro, among other things President of their oil tanker company, Scorpio Tankers.

The target will not be revealed

Robert Bugbee, Scorpio’s system director, wrote in an email to E24 on Wednesday that they did not want to comment on how many Scandinavian shares the company ultimately wants to hold.

He responds as follows to questions about whether they have contacted other Scandinavian shareholders to discuss potential sales:

-We only purchased shares through shareholders residing in Oslo. We have not directly contacted any shareholders to speak to them regarding the sale of shares.

Bugbee has previously denied that the stock purchases were part of a hostile takeover.

-We know Bjorn. We love Bjorn. We have informed him and his management that we support him. We have made it clear to him that we want to and have continued to build our position on what we see as an investment opportunity, he said last week.

CEO and largest shareholder Bjørn Tore Larsen at Nourse “does not comment on individual shareholder relationships,” the airline’s communications department said last week.
