MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company SA has increased its majority stake in Terminal Investment Ltd (TIL) to 60%, following a deal with Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP) and other co-investors.
MSC also welcomes a new partner to the shareholding of TIL after Global Investment Corporation, a Singaporean Sovereign Wealth Fund, acquired a 10% stake in TIL from GIP and other existing co-investors. GIP, a leading global, independent infrastructure fund manager, remains a significant shareholder.
