ICTSI on June 1 signed a share purchase agreement with Prime Strategic Holdings, Inc. (PSHI) to purchase 100% shares in MHCPSI for P2.447 billion. MHCPSI operates a 10-hectare international breakbulk and bulk private port facility located north of Manila Harbour Center, Port of Manila.

PSHI is a related party of ICTSI as both are under a common ultimate ownership.

The port operator said the transaction, together with its flagship Manila International Container Terminal and joint venture Manila North Harbour Port, Inc. (MNHPI), “puts ICTSI in a position to generate efficiencies and benefit from synergies across the entire Manila Bay waterfront.” ICTSI currently owns 50% shareholdings in MNHPI, a domestic terminal in Manila North Harbor, after acquiring shares in 2017 and 2018.

Incorporated on May 13, 2016, MHCPSI operates a private port facility north of Manila Harbour Center under a Permit to Operate granted by the Philippine Ports Authority. It mainly handles and stores international breakbulk and bulk cargo.

In 2020, MHCPSI reported a throughput of more than 4.3 million tons across its 865-meter quay and maintains a water depth of about 10 meters.
