Our ability to compete will also be significantly enhanced by closing the gap to the top three of our industry. There will be no major changes to the way we work until the transition to the Hapag-Lloyd systems towards the end of the first quarter 2015.”The main processes of integrating CSAV’s container business into Hapag-Lloyd are expected to be completed by the end of the second quarter of 2015.In addition to integrating CSAV’s container business into Hapag-Lloyd, there are also plans to strengthen the company by raising capital of EUR 370 million (USD 457.6m) by December 31, 2014, in which CSAV will take a share of EUR 259 million (USD 320.3m) and Kühne Maritime EUR 111 million (USD 137.3m) .The ownership structure of Hapag-Lloyd AG will therefore change as follows: CSAV will become Hapag-Lloyd’s biggest shareholder with 34% after the cash capital increase.

first_imgPhoto: Monty Brinton/CBS ©2019 CBS Broadcasting, Inc. All Rights Reserved(NEW YORK) — Tamar Braxton’s probably still riding the high from her historic Celebrity Big Brother win, but the singer will have much more to celebrate upon the arrival of her new reality show. Braxton sat down with Wendy Williams Tuesday to share that she’s landed her own series on We TV. While the Bluebird of Happiness vocalist is no stranger to reality TV — she’s been scene-stealing her way through Braxton Family Values since 2011 — her forthcoming spin-off will be the first time she’s carried a show all on her own. Braxton also revealed that her estranged husband Vincent Herbert is also set to appear in the series.   “Vince and I are not enemies,” said Tamar. “We co-parent really, really well.” Braxton and Herbert’s highly-publicized 2017 split was fueled by allegations of domestic violence, family feuds and financial issues. They share a 6-year-old son, Logan Herbert.While details are still scarce regarding the yet-to-be-titled show, Braxton shared that the series will reflect more of a sitcom vibe. “I’m really about my business nowadays,” she added. “In 2019, you have to grow up at some point. I’ll be 42 later on this month.”In the meantime, Tamar’s fans can catch her on the newest season of Braxton Family Values, set to arrive on April 4.  Last month, Tamar became the first African-American to win CBS’ Celebrity Big Brother, taking home a $250,000 prize for her trouble.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
