Attica Group is set to pull off yet another merger deal that will bolster its position as Greece’s leading ferry company.

The Athens-listed entity announced on Friday it has agreed to take over troubled smaller rival ANEK Lines.

The deal was concluded with creditors and shareholders representing a majority 57.7% interest in ANEK, Attica said.

The latter include Greek lenders Piraeus Bank, Alpha Bank, Attica Bank, as well as Cross Ocean Partners — a loan-buying private equity fund based in London.
