Marsden Maritime Holdings Limited Analysis


Marsden Maritime Holdings Limited (previously known as Northland Port Corporation (NZ) Limited), was formed in 1988 following deregulation of harbour boards.

The business was redefined in subsequent years, including the development of a new port facility at Marsden Point in a 50/50 joint venture arrangement (Northport) with the Port of Tauranga.

The company listed in October 1992 with a public offer of 10 million shares at $1.25.

On 25 July 2014 the company announced a name and code change from Northland Port Corporation (NZ) Limited ("NTH") to Marsden Maritime Holdings Limited ("MMH"). The change was effective on 4 August 2014.

MMH has been granted Listing with a 'Non-Standard' ("NS") designation.
