  13. 13. But why is DPC doing all this? <ul><li>Get the story straight with all stakeholders </li></ul><ul><li>From customers’ perspective: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Capacity utilisation is paramount </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Make more use of what we have </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>DPC open to supporting customer initiatives which improve utilisation of the existing estate and berths </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>DPC will need to build capacity in advance of demand, but not too far in advance </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Want customers to understand our development plans based on our business priorities </li></ul>
  14. 14. Business Priorities <ul><li>Provide port infrastructure to be operated by private sector customers (shipping lines, terminal operators and stevedores) </li></ul><ul><li>Develop and maintain commercial relationships with customers in such a way as to maintain competitive forces in the shipping, terminal operation and stevedoring markets </li></ul><ul><li>Generate a return on capital employed sufficient to remunerate past investments appropriately and sufficient to allow future investment in port infrastructure </li></ul><ul><li>Subject all capital investment proposals to rigorous appraisal to ensure target ROCE is not compromised by inappropriate investment decisions </li></ul><ul><li>Manage operating costs downwards to appropriate levels </li></ul><ul><li>Manage port pricing consistent with the above objectives </li></ul><ul><li>Distribute surplus cash by way of dividends </li></ul>
  15. 15. A quick word on McCarthy <ul><li>The regular payment of a reasonable dividend to the shareholder is good practice and a performance regulator. The Group recommends that a dividend of at least 30% of profits should be paid each year except in the most unusual circumstances. </li></ul><ul><li>The state-owned ports, including Rosslare, should be restructured into several competing multi-port companies, built around Dublin, Cork and Shannon Foynes. The Competition Authority should be consulted concerning the amalgamation process. </li></ul><ul><li>Privatisation of some or all of the ports should be considered, ideally after the recommended restructuring. The adequacy of competition in the sector on an all-Ireland basis should be reviewed prior to privatisation and suitable regulatory arrangements instituted, if deemed necessary. </li></ul>
