And here comes another of those GE SeaCo containers.
Your history lesson for the day...SeaCo (formerly GE SeaCo) is one of the world's largest milvan leasing companies. It was created in 1998 as a joint venture of GE Capital and Sea Containers Ltd.) (later SeaCo Ltd.) Sea Containers had filed for Chapter 11 in 2006, emerging in 2009. In December 2011, the entire company was sold to a joint venture of the Chinese firm HNA Group (backed by the government of Hainan Province) and the Hong Kong-based private-equity firm Bravia Capital.
