The appeal will come before Denmark's High Court in November and is likely to succeed or fail that month with no further proceedings, the spokesman said.
The case arose from a complaint by a Malaysian customer in 2014 over 24 deliveries of fuel oil in 2011-2013, in which the customer said it received less product than it had paid for. The company was fined and then CEO Jan Jacobsen handed a prison sentence of three years and six months in September.
The verdict was "strongly disputed by Monjasa in all its aspects," the spokesman said.
