As part of a larger divestment of government assets, the state has put 50 percent of Danske Færger up for sale. The company operates five domestic ferries, and two routes from Bornholm to Sweden and Germany, InsideBusiness wrote.

The sale is expected to earn the state between 800 million and 1 billion DKK.

There are ongoing negotiations, but there is no information about who the interested buyers are.
The state owns Danske Færger equally with Clipper, who previously stated that they want to maintain their ownership, as the shipping company is "a good business".

Danske Færger achieved progress in 2016 on all its routes, where their ferries transported 6,3 percent more cars and 3,6 percent more passengers.

Danske Færger lose a significant part of their business when Mols-Linien takes over the ferry service of Bornholm on September 1, next year.
