Genting Hong Kong sells off remaining stake in Norwegian Cruise Line - CalvinAyre.com
Genting Hong Kong (Genting HK) has shipped off the remainder of its stake in cruise operator Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. (NCLH). The company made its announcement through a filing with the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (HKSE) yesterday, indicating that it had consummated the sale for $158.8 million, with NCLH being the purchaser of the stocks. Genting HK first announced that it would sell its remaining stake in the company this past April.

Between August of last year and March 2018, Genting HK sold a total of 22,250,000 shares it held in NCLH across three separate offerings. It once held 11.13% of the company and the most recent transaction, held in March, saw it give up 4.26% of the company for $543.6 million. The most recent sale resulted in the company relinquishing the last 3,148,307 shares it held in NCLH.

Genting HK has said that the money would most likely be used for the “purchase of property, plant and equipment such as construction of ships and funding new investments of the group should suitable opportunities arise.” It added in the filing with the HKSE, “The group’s strategy has been to realize profits with cash inflow from realization of its investment in NCLH, which has come to the exit phase, and to capture return at opportune times, subject to favorable prevailing share prices and market sentiment.”

The cruise ship operator recently announced that it was looking to explore waters outside of Asia beginning next year. It stated that it would begin offering its “Queensland and the Barrier Reef Cruises” at the end of October, which would take place on the 1,870-capacity “Explorer Dream.” Genting HK also anticipates launching two more cruises – one to North and South New Zealand this month and the other to Tasmania Island and Melbourne next February.

The company hopes to become “Asia’s Global Cruise Line.” It has also started working on a large cruise ship that will offer 2,500 passenger cabins and which will be 1,122 feet long and 150 feet wide.

NCLH is taking back control of the company. In addition to the share buyback from Genting HK, the company has also announced that it will buy back as much as $85 million worth of shares that are held by Morgan Stanley. In total, the cruise line is looking to spend $1 billion to repurchase shares.

Gendered Linguistics: Why Words Matter - YouTube
Gendered language is something that I have thought about a number of times lately. The topic is coming up more in job postings when recruiting, and I've also considered it when companies write policies or training material. This talk is thought provoking regarding where gender coding of language comes from. Is it the language or the usage?
