History GEN

On June 24, 1983, Euroandina de Inversiones S.A. was formed. – today Grupo Empresas Navieras S.A. – as a closed corporation to act preferably as an investor in shares, bonds and securities.

Subsequently, and through the division of Interoceánica, in 1989 it came to control a new company called Inversiones Cabo Froward S.A., whose sole asset was 99.95% of Agencias Universales S.A., a company that since 1960 has provided services as an important shipping agent

The company changed its name to EMPRESAS NAVIERAS S.A., which resolved to increase the share capital, thus incorporating new shareholders and registering in the Securities Registry as an open corporation. Thus, at the end of that year, the company controlled approximately 69% of Compañía Chilena de Navegación Interoceánica S.A. and of Inversiones Cabo Froward S.A.

Consolidation as a public limited company, starting a plan that would allow it to be viewed as a company with investments in companies with clear objectives and fully operational.

The merger of Inversiones Cabo Froward S.A. was promoted. with its subsidiary Agencias Universales S.A., resulting in a new Agencias Universales S.A., fully operational. In order to ensure that companies have clear objectives and specialization, Agencias Universales S.A. was divided into two, one continuing as Shipping Agents and cargo services and another as an investor in port infrastructure. The first continued to be called Agencias Universales S.A. and the new company was renamed Portuaria Cabo Froward S.A., a company that owns a port terminal in Coronel Bay, intended for massive cargo, and a significant share in Portuaria Puchoco S.A., a company with the same line of business as Froward.

The merger between Portuaria Cabo Froward S.A. and its subsidiary Portuaria Puchoco S.A. takes place, keeping the name of the former. The foregoing has not only allowed GEN to control large companies, all open corporations, that trade their shares on the country’s Stock Exchange, but also to effectively face the strong national and international competition that affects each one of them. and to the market situations that it has had to face.

GEN acquired 35% of Antofagasta Terminal Internacional S.A., and formed, together with other partners, Sociedad Terminal Puerto Arica S.A., with which it entered the business of concessioned port terminals.

GEN acquired 15% of Iquique Terminal Internacional S.A., and was awarded the Concession for the Docking Front of the Port of Talcahuano for 30 years, establishing the company Talcahuano Terminal Portuario S.A. (PTT).

GEN created two new subsidiary companies, Angol Navigation Ltd. and Arauco Navigation Ltd. The object of each subsidiary is the acquisition and operation, via lease, of a container ship per subsidiary with a capacity of 9,000 TEUs each, which were built at the Hanjin Heavy Industries & Construction Co. Ltd. shipyards.

To date, the company controls or directly participates in 83.23% of Compañía Marítima Chilena S.A., 81.07% of Agencias Universales S.A., 91.92% of Portuaria Cabo Froward S.A., 35% of Antofagasta Terminal Internacional S.A., 99% of Portuaria Mar Austral S.A., 99.99% of Talcahuano Terminal Portuario S.A., 75% of Angol Navigation Ltd. and 75% of Arauco Navigation Ltd.
