This is reportedly the largest credit facility secured by ICTSI to date, as well as the largest bilateral facility granted by Metrobank.

The loan proceeds will be utilised to repay the worldwide port operator’s short-term commitments as well as to support strategic mergers and acquisitions.

ICTSI has previously invested in both new and existing terminals to support the expansion of its offshore and domestic activities.
