“We have a robust balance sheet and a highly cash generative business which looking ahead, will enable us to continue our strong track record of investing in our terminals to support future growth for the benefit of all our stakeholders. Our estimated capital expenditure is US$400 million for the year which will be used to expand and improve productivity and efficiency at terminals including Australia, Mexico, Philippines, Democratic Republic of Congo and Nigeria. These investments are examples of our ongoing commitment to make our ports more efficient, accessible and globally competitive.”
