Madrid, March 9 2012.- Ferrovial has been named stock of the year 2011 by the readers of the weekly magazine Inversión.
This distinction recognizes the strength of Ferrovial, which appreciated by 25.4% in 2011, and reflects the company’s robust financial situation despite the current market context.
In 2011, Ferrovial obtained net profit of 1.269 billion euro and improved its main financial metrics. EBITDA reached 818 million euro in 2011, an 8.9% improvement in like-for-like terms. The net cash position (excluding projects) increased to 907 million euro.
The award was presented by Antonio Zoido, Chairman of Bolsas y Mercados Españoles, and was collected by Joaquín Ayuso, Vice-Chairman of Ferrovial, in a ceremony at the Madrid Stock Exchange.
This is the twentieth consecutive year that the readers of Inversión, which specializes in the field of savings and investment, have voted for these awards. In 2007, the readers rated Ferrovial’s acquisition of BAA as “Best Financial Operation”.
