GA_P advises Meridiam on the acquisition of 15% of Ausol

Gómez-Acebo & Pombo has advised, through Infratoll Concesiones, a company controlled by the french fund Meridiam, on the acquisition of 15% of Ausol for €110.8 million from Ferrovial, through Cintra.

Founded in 2005, Meridiam is a Paris-based global investor and asset manager specialising in the development, financing and management of long-term public infrastructure projects.

The transaction comes as a result of Cintra exercising its put option on these shares from 2019, when it sold 65% of Ausol to the same French fund.

The team from GA_P advising Meridiam was formed by Fernando Igartua (pictured left), partner of banking and finance, Mariana Díaz-Moro (pictured right), partner of tax, Irene Carreño Álvarez and Sergio Gómez, associates of corporate, María Fanego and Cecilia Herreros, associates of banking and finance.
