Historical background

Abertis' origins are to be found in the construction, management and operation of Spain's first tollroads.

Since its creation, in 2003, Abertis has followed a growth and profitability-based strategy which has placed the company at the forefront of infrastructure project management. This is demonstrated by:

· The concessionaire Sanef joining the group in 2006.

· The acquisition among  2008 and 2013 of 57.05% of Hispasat maked Abertis the major shareholder in the Spanish satellite operator.

· Since 2009, after concluding operations with ACS and Citi, Abertis controls Avasa in Spain, while in Chile it controls the concessionaires Elqui and Gesa, as well as a majority holding and control of Rutas del Pacífico.

· In 2011, the concession award of PR-22 and PR-5 tollroads in Puerto Rico to the Metropistas, a consortium leaded by Abertis .

· In 2012, the world leadership in the toll road sector following the integration of the Arteris Group's tollroads, as well of three extra concessions in Chile, acquired to the OHL group.
