A step towards the completion of Tallink’s acquisition of Silja Line was taken on Thursday, when a majority of Tallink shareholders at an Extraordinary General Meeting voted in favour of the deal.
An overwhelming majority of the shareholders gave their support to the acquisition: 87,686,582 votes were in favour; 2,272 were against. 1,320 did not vote.
The deal has still to be cleared by the competition authorities.
