Aegean Marine Petroleum Network Inc. shares closed up roughly 222% on Thursday on skyrocket volume compared to usual. The stock traded nearly 38.8 million shares compared to an average trading volume of just under 1.4 million shares. The big jump came after it was revealed that Mercuria Group has said it would provide a $1 billion trade finance facility to the company. Greek-based Aegean Marine said that Mercuria will invest at least $30 million in cash to begin and that the two companies are exploring "a potential broader strategic partnership between the company and Mercuria, including operational services, trading and hedging arrangements". Upon closure of the said deal, Aegean Marine will issue new share equal to 30% of its common stock to Mercuria and invite a Mercuria representative to its board of directors. Global head of trading for Mercuria, Magid Shenouda, stated, "We look forward to further developing our relationship with Aegean and providing the flexibility to execute a strategy that enhances the company's operations and positions the company for long-term success." It was a big jump for the stock yesterday after it hit a record low earlier in the week when the company announced writing off of $200 million of receivables on grounds that they were "without economic substance and improperly accounted for".
