DHT Holdings today delivered a stinging rejection to Frontline's ongoing takeover attempts. 

In a strongly worded letter - which saw DHT bat away Frontline's latest proposal - the New York-listed owner was critical of Frontline's past bailout, its mixed crude and products fleet and the age of its tankers. 

It also claimed Frontline had played legal "games" during the saga and suggested it was time for both companies to get back to their own business. 

In unanimously rejecting the latest in a line of merger proposals, DHT’s board said the offer was so far off the mark further discussions were unlikely to deliver a fair offer.
