Οι εκπρόσωποι της ΟΛΘ ΑΕ είχαν προσωπικές συναντήσεις με στελέχη οκτώ (8) επενδυτικών κεφαλαίων, μακροπρόθεσμου ορίζοντα, στους οποίους επιβεβαιώθηκε ότι η σχετική συμφωνία για την παραχώρηση του container terminal με την κοινοπραξία εταιριών   «HUTCHISON PORT HOLDINGS LIMITED, HUTCHISON PORT INVESTMENTS SARL,  ALAPIS ΑΕ, ΛΥΔ ΑΕ», θα ολοκληρωθεί  το αργότερο έως το τέλος του έτους, καθώς οι διαπραγματεύσεις συνεχίζονται με ταχείς ρυθμούς και σε πολύ καλό κλίμα.

Εκτέθηκαν επίσης οι ιδιαίτερα ευοίωνες προοπτικές για τη διακίνηση του συμβατικού φορτίου, μέσω του λιμένος της Θεσσαλονίκης.

Αναγνωρίζοντας την υφιστάμενη θέση και τις προοπτικές της εταιρίας, επεδείχθη ιδιαίτερο επενδυτικό ενδιαφέρον από τα στελέχη των επενδυτικών κεφαλαίων για την είσοδό τους στη μετοχική σύνθεση της εταιρίας.
