Norway’s mini-bulker specialist Wilson is forecasting increased profit in 2023 as a private company.

The shipowner has set a date of 22 February for a shareholder vote on a delisting from the Oslo Stock Exchange.

Norwegian tycoon Kristian Eidesvik wants to pull the listing due to a lack of liquidity in the share.

Net profit in the fourth quarter was €18.6m ($20.3m), down from €19.9m
