Sacyr Concessions celebrates its Investor Day 2019 today, an event with analysts and investors in which the company explains the development of its activity and the strategic lines for the coming years.
Sacyr Concessions, one of the four divisions of Sacyr, ranks seventh in the world rankings of transport infrastructure concessionaires, according to the prestigious journal Public Works Financing. It is also the fourth developer of greenfield projects.
Sacyr’s subsidiary operates in 10 countries in Europe and Latin America and has 44 backlog assets. The total investment managed by the concessionaire is 12,796 million euros and the future income backlog stands at 28,348 million.
Sacyr Concessions has a diversified asset backlog, with a presence, among others, in the highways, hospitals, railways and airports sectors. The company's asset backlog is young and has a remaining useful life of 27 years. A third of the assets, a total of 14, are still under construction.
Throughout the Investor Day, Sacyr Concessions detailed its main strategic lines, which have allowed it to double its future revenue backlog between 2015 and 2019 from 13,339 million euros to the current figure of 28,348 million.
These strategic lines are based on three pillars: vertical integration, which enables it to obtain value from all stages of the life of a concession; optimization of the financial strategy, and asset rotation.
Sacyr specializes in greenfield projects, in which it is involved in all stages since the project design: market analysis, bidding, construction, operation, financial strategy and asset rotation.
The success of this model is reflected in the tenders won in the last three years. In total, six projects awarded in those considered as domestic markets (Colombia, Chile and Mexico) and two in Paraguay and Uruguay. Totaling 2,802 million euros.
These figures translate into a 36% success rate of the projects won by Sacyr Concessions, together with other divisions, such as Construction and Services.
Currently, the backlog of potential projects identified worldwide reaches 55,522 million euros. In addition to highways, railways, airports and other social infrastructures, Sacyr Concessions has potential projects in new areas in its backlog, such as energy and water and waste management.
