ABERTIS LISTING COMMENCES 2 JUNE
The Acesa Infraestructuras / Aurea Concesiones de Infraestructuras merger deed has today been recorded with the Barcelona Mercantile Register, following verification and registration of the prospectus by Spain’s Stock Exchange Commission, the CNMV.
The share exchange process is being carried out over the weekend, with the Aurea shares being cancelled, thus completing the merger between the two companies and giving rise to the new company abertis infraestructuras.
Shares in abertis will be listed from 2 June on the Barcelona, Bilbao, Madrid and Valencia Stock Exchanges (continuous market). The company’s stock exchange code changes from ACE to ABE.
abertis, with more than 75,000 shareholders, forms part of the IBEX 35 selective index and is present on the important international indices Standard&Poor’s Europe 350 and Eurotop 300, which feature Europe’s leading listed companies.
With a stock market capitalisation of more than €6,000 million, abertis is Europe’s second-largest motorway company in capitalisation terms, behind Italy’s Autostrade.
The abertis Group is made up of over 50 directly-managed or associate companies operating in the fields of motorways, car parking, logistics area development, telecommunications infrastructure and airports.
It is Europe’s third-largest motorway operator in terms of kilometres under management, the second in terms of stock market capitalisation and the continent’s leading global infrastructure management business by net worth.
