Globalvia close the acquisition of the Seville Metro

(through its affiliate Iridium), Sacyr, Gea 21 and CAF have closed the sale to Globalvia of their 34.01%,
32.77%, 11.15% and 10.30% stakes, respectively, of the company that manages and
operates the Seville metro (Metro de Sevilla Sociedad Concesionaria de la Junta
de Andalucía) for a total consideration of EUR 177 million, which corresponds
to EUR 156 million for the 88.23% stake sold.
The grantor, Agencia de Obra Pública de la Junta de
Andalucía, will hold its 11.77% stake.

For Globalvia, this operation represents a new step to achieving its objective of becoming one of the leaders in transport infrastructures management in general and railway infrastructures in particular. Currently, Globalvia already participates in Spanish railway infrastructures such as tramways in Barcelona, Parla (Madrid), the Sanchinarro (Madrid) light metro, the Barajas metro (line 8 of the Madrid metro) and Transportes Ferroviarios de Madrid (line 9B of the Madrid metro).

The Seville metro is 18 kilometres long with 21 stations in operation. It crosses the municipalities of Mairena del Aljarafe, San Juan de Aznalfarache, Seville and Dos Hermanas. It went into operation in April 2009 and carried 14 million passengers in 2013.
