P3 asset valuation: €3.3 billion

Sacyr has 70 P3 assets with an average lifecycle of 26 years. The company has experienced great success in the past months with four new contract awards: a section of the I-10 in the United States, the Via del Mare and A-21 highways in Italy and El Loa Airport in Chile.

The company has over €600 million committed equity in signed projects for the next four years and has a significant pipeline of 34 projects under review in its target markets.

In this sense, according to PWF magazine, Sacyr has consolidated its position as the third transportation asset developer and one of the largest infrastructure P3 developers in the world.


Drastic recourse net debt reduction


One of the main objectives in the 2021-2025 Strategic Plan was the drastic reduction of recourse net debt, which has been cut down by 51% and went from €546 million as of December 2022 to €269 million by 2023 year-end. The ratio of recourse net debt to recourse EBITDA plus P3 asset distributions ratio is 0.8 times.

The successful sale operations of VSM and Sacyr Facilities, as well as the rotation of minority shares in Autovía del Eresma (Spain) and the N6 (Ireland) contributed to reaching last year’s debt reduction goals.

The company remains firmly committed to recourse net debt reduction and control.


Improved shareholder remuneration


Shareholder remuneration is one of the cornerstones of the 2021-2025 Strategic Plan. In 2023, the company increased shareholder remuneration to 13.6 cents per share, delivered in two scrip dividends in January and July, bringing the annual yield to 4.9%.


Evolution by activity


Concessions/P3 - Sacyr Concesiones obtained a €940 million EBITDA (+7%) thanks to the good operating performance of the asset portfolio, the projects in Colombia and the contributions of the Ruta 78 and Los Vilos highways and Buin Paine Hospital in Chile, and the P3 assets’ revenues are directly linked to inflation.

Sacyr continues to demonstrate its capacity to deliver and commission new P3 assets. Since 2022, it has brought eight assets into operation and the Ferrocarril Central project in Uruguay and Pamplona-Cúcuta highway in Colombia will start providing service in the upcoming months.
