China Merchants Port to acquire stakes in 10 terminals from CMA CGM for $995m

China Merchants Port has entered into a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with CMA CGM to acquire interests in a portfolio of 10 terminals from the French container line and its affiliates via Terminal Link, which is jointly owned by China Merchants Port and CMA CGM, for a total consideration of $955m.

The two parities have reached agreement on all the main terms and conditions of the proposed transaction and will work together to finalise the formal agreement shortly.

Upon completion of the proposed deal between Terminal Link and CMA CGM, Terminal Link will own equity interests in a portfolio of 23 terminals serving various regions such as Asia, Europe, Middle-East and the Caribbean, each of which has a strong growth potential, said China Merchants Port.
