International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI) today reported unaudited consolidated financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2016 posting revenue from port operations of US$266.5 million, a decrease of 10 percent from the US$296.1 million reported for the same period last year; Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) of US$121.9 million, four percent lower than the US$127.5 million generated in the first quarter of 2015; and net income attributable to equity holders of US$42.2 million, down 22 percent compared to the US$54.0 million earned in the same period last year.  The decline in earnings was mainly driven by lower storage & ancillary revenues, unfavorable container volume mix, lower capitalized borrowing cost, higher depreciation and amortization expenses and start-up costs of new terminals and projects.  Diluted earnings per share for the period declined 40 percent to US$0.014 from US$0.023 in 2015.

The acquisition thus adds 8 ports with a combined 2 million TEU equity-weighted volumes to APM Terminals, expanding the network to 72 operating ports, across 69 countries.
