Investment Case CLI
Corredor Logística e Infraestrutura ("CLI") is one of the four companies that comprise the consortium responsible for operating TEGRAM, one of the largest grain terminals in the country, located at the port of Itaqui in Maranhão. The terminal has a loading capacity of approximately 18 million tons of grains (soybeans, corn and soybean meal) per year and is the shipping hub for most of the soybeans produced in the Mapito region, which is made up by the states of Maranhão, Piauí and Tocantins.
The transaction was completed after a complex debt restructuring led by IG4 Capital, which involved nine banks that had lent to the former shareholder. The investment also included a capital injection into the company that will help the terminal grow and the region develop.
With our investment in CLI, we are focused on contributing via:
Expansion of the country's export logistics capacity
We are focused on continuing to improve the operations of one of the main grain terminals in the country, contributing to the expansion of the logistics infrastructure of the Brazilian agribusiness sector.
Socio-economic development in the region
Located in the port of Itaqui, the Maranhão Grain Terminal is a strategic asset for the growth of agricultural production in the Mapito region.
Development of new technologies and assurance of the grain source
Through the implementation of new technologies, IG4 will seek not only to improve the terminal’s current operations, but also to track the grain transported. Through this, we will assure all our stakeholders as to the origin of the grain received and shipped via the terminal
