In October 2015, Turkish mogul Robert Yildirim, president and chief executive of the Yildirim Group, confirmed that he had agreed to sell back his 24% stake in CMA CGM to controlling shareholders the Saade’s, a move that will allow him to concentrate on his self-confessed first love, ports. The Yildirim Group’s port operating arm Yilport Holdings has risen rapidly in recent years through a number of major acquisitions, including domestic deals at Gemport and Rotaport, as well as stakes in ports in both Sweden and Norway and more recently the takeover of Portuguese port management company Tertir.
