IFM invests in MIP Mersin

Melbourne-based infrastructure fund IFM Investors has purchased a 40% stake in Mersin International Port, which is Turkey’s largest cargo-handling complex in the eastern part of the country, from Akfen Holding

Akfen Holding is retaining a 10% share in the asset and its Chairman Hamdi Akın will also remain Chairman of MIP. PSA International’s 50% holding in MIP is unaffected by the transaction.

IFM, which is spending US$869M on the stake, will manage the investment through its Global InfraCo SP NEUM SLU fund. The deal gives the Australian group its first port operation outside of Australia where it is involved in the ports of Sydney (Port Botany), Brisbane and Kembla. IFM also has substantial investments in airports, toll roads and energy distribution projects.

Commenting on the disposal, Hamdi Akın said that the funds raised were needed to support the company’s investments in other projects. This year has seen Akfen sell shares in various infrastructure project, including 33% of Akfen Renewable Energy, to the EBRD and IFC and 8.1% of TAV Airports Holding to Aéroports de Paris.

MIP is the second largest container port in Turkey and handled 1.45M TEU in 2016. Last year, it opened its second container terminal and phased into operation four super-post panamax gantry cranes, raising its annual throughput capacity to 2.6M TEU.
