In order to reorganise, eliminate inter-company loans and simplify the group corporate structure for better administration, PSL has acquired the entire equity of West Waves Maritime and Allied Services (WWMAS) from Magnificent Merchandise and Advisory Services based on valuation report of a reputed valuer with the ultimate objective of merging WWMAS with itself, subject to regulatory approval, said JSW Steel in a statement on Wednesday.
