受制于过去几年的财务压力，张氏的太平船务今天透露， 淡马锡（世界第八大主权基金）旗下的Heliconia 资本管理公司将入资。
太平正在与另外两家还没有达成还款协议的债权人协商债务的还款时间， 一家在5月11日发出催款通知要求十天内支付12,641,059.38 美元（新元？）。与另外一家出租人（相信是船舶的船东，船舶出租人）商谈还款事宜。
太平船务的船舶因为公司不能及时付租金或者燃油被扣押也是经常上头条；这家家族企业先后退出两大干线，3月份退出跨太平洋航线，4月份退出亚欧航线。 前不久也卖掉了在南太平洋经营的PDL资产， 2-3月份先后卖了几条万箱船。
淡马锡救太平船务也不是第一次了。其实Alphaliner 2018年就透露，太平船务得到过一笔淡马锡控股的海城控股公司（SeaTown Holdings）的贷款。

Strained Singapore-based shipping company Pacific International Lines (PIL), owned by the Teo family, is working to improve its loan agreements and bring a new investor into its ownership circle, reveals a statementsubmitted to the stock exchange in Singapore.
Rumors have circulated that PIL is going through financial problems and that suppliers have lost faith in the shipping company. But as of now, the shipping company has remained largely silent about its situation.
The shipping company now informs that it has already carried out several initiatives aimed at improving the company's financials, among these changes to the company's service offerings. However, these initiatives were not sufficient due to the additional effects caused by the coronavirus crisis. 尽管太平船务已经做了很多调整，但是远远不够，再加上新冠肺炎的影响。
The container line is now negotiating with 15 of its lenders to change loan agreements. According to the statement, lenders representing 97 percent of the company's debt have already given their in-principle approval on a deal with the shipping company to postpone repayment of loans and interest until Dec. 31 this year.
Two lenders have yet to approve the deal, including one that submitted a claim for repayment totaling USD 12.6 million on May 11 to be paid within ten business days.
In addition to negotiating with its lenders, PIL is also working to bring in an additional investor. In this connection, the shipping company has entered a six-month exclusivity deal with Heliconia Capital Management （淡马锡全资资产管理公司）to examine a potential investment.
If the parties come to an agreement, it is in fact the state of Singapore that will be joining as investor, as Heliconia Capital Management is owned by Temasek, one of the largest equity funds in the world, which is owned by Singapore.
A few months ago, it emerged that container supplier Singamas Container Holdings was in negotiations with PIL to reach a repayment agreement.
"The Company understands that the PIL Group is discussing with its other creditors for similar arrangements amid the challenging market conditions and recent global impact by COVID-19, the discussion is progressing well with good supports from the creditors," wrote Singamas in a statement at the time.
Singamas has PIL as a major stakeholder.
