Stepping Up in Exciting Times

Company: Forth Ports

Headquarters: Edinburg

Sector: Transportation

Date: 2011 / 2018

 

Following an initial investment in 2011 in the UK-based ports owner and operator Forth Ports, PSP took majority control of the company in 2018 through a two-step transaction, which entailed acquiring the previous controlling shareholder’s stake and subsequently selling down minority positions to likeminded, long-term investment partners including First State Super, Cbus and GLIL. Forth Ports is currently undergoing significant expansion with the development of a new terminal (Tilbury2) at the Port of Tilbury in London, and the positioning of its Scottish ports to capture growth in the emerging offshore wind and North Sea oil and gas decommissioning markets.
