SPA approves Port Royal sale; port volume up 3.8%


By Daniel Brock

Published May 18, 2010

The S.C. State Ports Authority board passed a resolution on Tuesday
approving a contract for the $16.75 million sale of its Port Royal facilities.

The move, approved at the board’s monthly meeting, authorizes management to
sign the contract, following approval from the state Budget and Control
Board, which meets in June.

According to the contract, the purchase would be made in two $8.375 million
payments, the first to be delivered after a period of due diligence and the
second no more than three years later. SPA officials have declined to name
the buyer until after the transaction is complete.

After final approval of the contract, the buyer would incur a $250,000
penalty if it did not complete the purchase.

The $16.75 million offer is higher than the property’s appraised value,
according to SPA officials. The proposed deal, however, falls almost $10
million short of a previous offer for the property and is more than $3
million less than the most recent asking price.

Volume up again
Port container was up for the fourth straight month, showing a 28.5%
year-over-year increase in April. Volume for the month also was up 3.8%
over March.

Comparisons to last year are somewhat skewed because of the shipping
industry’s historically bad year in 2009, officials said. They pointed to
the month-over-month increases as more concrete signs of port regeneration.

“It’s safe to say that we’ve got a little bit of a trend working here,”
said Paul McClintock, the SPA’s chief commercial officer.

The SPA is expecting more good news concerning volume, as a recently signed
deal with shipping line CSAV could mean as many as 1,000 containers per
week, according to officials.
