In early 2007, listed shares comprised close to 80 percent of Aker`s assets. As of 30 June 2007, taking into account the agreed sale of Aker Holding shares, listed companies` shares comprised just above 50 percent of Aker`s assets.In the first six months of 2007, Aker`s cash and short-term interest-bearing assets increased from NOK 0.9 billion to NOK 6.6 billion without including the agreed sale of Aker Holding shares.
