CC advises Vauban on the acquisition of a stake in Metro de Málaga from Infravia
Clifford Chance has advised Vauban on the acquisition of a 33.4% stake in Metro de Málaga from Infravia after having obtained the relevant authorisations from the grantor and the lenders
Metro de Málaga is the concessionaire who built and operates lines 1 and 2 of the Málaga underground railway. The layout design of lines 1 and 2 of the Málaga Metro took the form of an X and was created with the objective of enabling more than 200,000 residents of the most densely populated districts of the city to be within 500 meters of a station. Metro de Málaga is an environmentally sustainable method of transport aimed at responding to the Málaga citizens demand for mobility and to become a benchmark for public transport in the city.
This asset is embedded within Vauban´s strategy of investing in reliable transportation assets to ensure quality infrastructure conditions (including five toll roads and Line 9 of Barcelona underground) and complex social infrastructure (including courts and a prison), on which Clifford Chance has also advised.
The Clifford Chance team was led by Corporate partner Guillermo Guardia (pictured left), supported by associates Javier Hermosilla (pictured top right) and Estel Casas (pictured bottom right). Partner José Luis Zamarro, counsel Carme Briera and associate Mónica Romero have advised on Regulatory issues.
