Understand the impact of the Ukraine conflict from a cross-sector perspective with the Global Data Executive Briefing: Ukraine Conflict

The European Commission (EC) has granted an €80m Finnish recapitalisation measure for shipbuilding company Meyer Turku to offset the financial hit from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

This measure aims to address the national shipyard’s liquidity challenges, which worsened due to the existing geopolitical crisis and related cost increases.

Provided in the form of a hybrid equity loan, the measure will help strengthen the solvency of Meyer Turku and its smooth operations.

It is said to be essential from “both an economic and social perspective in light of the interaction of Meyer Turku Oy’s operations with a sizeable value chain in the Finnish economy.”

This funding aligns with the principles set out in the Temporary Crisis Framework adopted by the EC in March this year, and amended in July and October.
