COURAGE MARINE eyeing bigger property push

Amid a struggling dry bulk cargo sector, Courage Marine (HK: 1145) is set to diversify into the property investment business.

The Hong Kong and Singapore-listed firm recently convened an extraordinary general meeting to seek shareholder approval for the proposed diversification into the property investment business, acquisition of real estate and property development projects when opportunities arise.

It also proposed to invest in real estate and other property development projects in other ways including specializing in residential, business, warehouse and complex projects in the region.

Courage Marine explained that opportunities for such investments arise in the course of transporting goods such as sand, cement and gravel which are raw materials for the building and construction industry, as it had built up a network of customers or contacts who are active players in such industries.

The Group is often approached with offers or opportunities for investments or joint ventures in real estate or property developments or projects by such parties.
Courage Marine provides vessel chartering services to charterers. It owns and operates a number of dry bulk vessels, including Capesize, Panamax and Supermax vessels. Courage Marine mainly deploys its vessels in the waters around the Greater China region as well as Indonesia, Singapore, Korea, Japan, Vietnam, Cambodia, the Philippines and Russia. Courage Marine generally transports dry bulk commodities including coal, sea sand and bauxite as well as iron ore and minerals.
