Manila-based global container terminal operator International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI) reported unaudited consolidated financial results for the first half of 2017 posting revenue from port operations of US$603.7 million, an increase of 10 percent over the US$550.8 million reported for the first six months of 2016.
The net income attributable to equity holders of US$103.6 million, up 19 percent from the US$87.3 million earned in the same period last year due to the continuing ramp-up at the new terminal in Matadi, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), strong operating income contribution from the terminals in Iraq, Mexico and Brazil, and the one-time gain on the termination of the sub-concession agreement in Nigeria.
For the quarter ended June 30, 2017, revenue from port operations increased eight percent from US$284.3 million to US$306.5 million.
ICTSI handled consolidated volume of 4,545,405 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) in the first six months of 2017, seven percent more than the 4,264,633 TEUs handled in the same period in 2016.
