Clarksons Wins Deal of the Year

Clarksons, the world's leading shipping services group, is delighted to have won the 2015 Deal of the Year at the annual Lloyds List Global Awards for its acquisition of RS Platou ASA.

Described by the judges as a watershed deal that set new standards in the broking industry, the panel was unanimous that this groundbreaking acquisition should win.

Andi Case, CEO of Clarksons, commented, "Having completed the transaction and integrated the businesses we are extremely excited about the combination and quality of the teams we have in place around the world. Whilst we live in a multicyclical market place we are delighted others have recognised this achievement and are equally excited about the potential that the combination of these two leading businesses creates by way of a truly 'best in class' integrated offer across shipping and offshore, broking and banking."
