Scandlines is a ferry operator owned by a consortium consisting of First State Investments, Hermes Investment Management, and equity investor 3i Group. Scandlines operates two lines for passenger and freight in and between Denmark and Germany (Rødby–Puttgarden and Gedser–Rostock). Scandlines services to Sweden were served in co-operation with Stena Line, but in 2015, Stena Line and Scandlines sold their shares to the investment fund First State.
The parent company is Scandferries Holding ApS, with headquarter in Copenhagen, Denmark, with a German subsidiary named Scandlines Deutschland GmbH situated in Hamburg, and a Danish subsidiary named Scandlines Danmark ApS, situated in Copenhagen.
Scandlines used to be co-owned by the Danish Ministry of Transportation (50%) and Deutsche Bahn AG (50%), but as of June 2007, it was sold to a consortium consisting of 3i Group of London (40%), Allianz Capital Partners (ACP) of Munich (40%), and Deutsche Seereederei (DSR) of Rostock (20%). The consortium bought Scandlines for a total of 1,560 million euros. On 29 October 2010, DSR's 20% share of Scandlines was acquired by 3i Group and ACP. At the end of 2013 3i Group acquired ACP's stake for 165 million euros, becoming the sole owner of Scandlines.
Since 2018, Scandlines has been owned by a consortium consisting of 3i, First State Investments, and Hermes Investment Management.
