Deutsche Ban buys terminal operator
LONDON (Bloomberg) — Deutsche Bank AG’s RREEF infrastructure division agreed to buy U.S. container-terminal operator Maher Terminals LLC for an undisclosed amount.
The purchase will be made through a U.S. unit of RREEF, the subsidiary said in an e-mailed statement today. Privately held Maher Terminals operates a container terminal in Port Elizabeth, New Jersey, and is building a terminal in Prince Rupert, B.C.
Buyout firms, pension funds and investment banks are vying for acquisitions such as port assets that provide steady earnings. RREEF bought a stake in U.K. billionaire John Whittaker’s Peel Holdings Ltd.’s ports business in November.
The acquisition by RREEF will allow Maher Terminals to add to its existing terminal businesses and “compete for additional capacity in the North American market,â€

Deutsche Bank is also financing the world’s largest wind power project south of Prince Rupert on Banks Island.
With a sluggish german economy they are looking elsewhere to invest.
