On the 7th December the new Ferrovial began trading on the stock market following completion of the Cintra-Ferrovial merger. The company’s capital is represented by 733,510,255 shares and its market capitalization is close to 5.8 billion euro.
The company is part of the blue chip Ibex 35 index and it is listed on the Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia and Bilbao stock exchanges and on Spain’s electronic market (SIB). Ferrovial opened at 7.77 euro per share, the price at which Cintra closed the previous Thursday, since the latter absorbed its parent company in the merger. With Cintra delisted, Ferrovial is represented by only one listed stock.
During the event at the Madrid Stock Exchange, Ferrovial’s Chairman, Rafael del Pino, highlighted the new company’s appeal to investors: “We have the advantage of being larger and having a larger free float, which provides greater liquidity and reduces volatility. Ferrovial is a very attractive investment because of the value of its assets and the share’s upside potential“.
CEO Iñigo Meirás noted: “The Cintra-Ferrovial merger has created a world leader in infrastructure management and services, and the top choice for investing in infrastructure”. Ferrovial, which has been listed since 1999, has appreciated sharply this year, by close to 50%, compared with an average of 27% by the Ibex 35 between January and November 2009 and 13% by the infrastructure sector.
The new Ferrovial is a world leader in developing and managing transport infrastructure and services. It operates in 49 countries and employs over 100,000 people; in 2008, revenues amounted to 14.1 billion euro and EBITDA to 2.738 billion euro.
The company has 48 billion euro in assets and has invested over 68.2 billion dollars in infrastructure since 1985. Ferrovial manages landmark assets such as the Chicago Skyway and Indiana Toll Road in the US, the 407 ETR in Canada, Ausol and Autema toll roads in Spain, and Heathrow and Stansted airports in the UK. It also provides services to more than 800 municipalities in Spain and to the millions of London Underground and Madrid Metro users.
