AQABA CONTAINER TERMINAL
- The Aqaba Container Terminal (ACT) is managed and operated through 25-year joint development agreement between the Aqaba Development Corporation and ACT’s management company, APM Terminals. Per the terms of this concession agreement, ACT was required to develop and expand the terminal’s capacity. To secure financing for this ambitious expansion project, ACT called upon Capital Investments to act as its arranger and facility agent.
- In 2010, Capital Investments led the formation of a loan syndicate – comprising Capital Bank of Jordan, Cairo Amman Bank, Jordan Kuwait Bank, and the Social Security Investment Fund – that signed a JOD75 million, eight-year syndicated loan agreement with ACT to partially fund its terminal expansion project. This not only allowed ACT to meet the terms of its concession agreement, but it also helped the terminal further elevate its positioning as the strategic gateway to Jordan and the region, providing a crucial service to the Kingdom and playing a significant role in the national economy.
