Atlantia to buy Abertis+Hispasat

Italy’s Atlantia, perhaps better known as highway operator Autostrade per l’Italia, is expected today (May 15) to be making an offer to buy Spanish infrastructure business Abertis. One of the Abertis investments is a major 57 per cent stake in Spanish satellite operator Hispasat. The overall deal is reportedly worth more than €15 billion, and in the process, would create one of the world’s largest toll-road operators.
