Kistefos withdraws the request for a general meeting – E24

Kistefos withdraws the request for a general meeting – E24

Sveaas Camp's application dated December 7 last year to hold an extraordinary general meeting has been withdrawn and therefore no general meeting will be held, Solstad Offshore said in an announcement to the stock exchange.


Last week, E24 wrote that the dialogue between Kjell Inge Røkkes Aker and Christen Sveaas's Kistefos over the resolution of the Solstad dispute has now been broken.

Kestevos called for an extraordinary general meeting to consider lawsuits against Acker and others responsible for the bailout agreement for the debt-laden shipping company Solstad Offshore.

They consider themselves to have been “blatantly discriminated against in favor of Al-Aker” in relation to the bailout agreement.

Aker, Kistefos CEO Bengt Rem and Chairman of the Board Harald Espedal have rejected the criticism.

When it became clear that the dialogue between the two parties had collapsed, Acker's communications director, Atli Kegen, told E24 that the dialogue had ended without any amendments being made, and that Aker was now “leaving this stage behind us.”

The billionaire's battle began in December last year when investor Christine Svejas and his investment company Kistefos launched a full-scale attack on Røkkes Aker regarding values ​​in the shipping company.
