China Merchants Ports will commit $968m to widen its portfolio and take over these 10 additional terminals. And to finance this acquisition without changing its capital structure, Terminal Link will increase its share by $468m, funded solely by China Merchants Ports, and receive a loan, also from China Merchants Ports. This loan will be converted after eight years into a capital increase subscribed by CMA CGM.
