News: Exclusive: CDP consortium to value Atlantia’s unit 9 billion euros in bid – sources.
MILAN (Reuters) – A consortium of investors led by Italian state lender Cassa Depositi e Prestiti (CDP) is expected to approve a binding offer on Tuesday for Atlantia’s 88% stake in the Autostrade per l’Italia motorway unit, two sources close to the matter said.
The offer is based on a valuation of 9 billion euros for 100% of Autostrade per l’Italia.
The offer is unlikely to include a condition protecting buyers from the legal risks associated with the collapse of an Autostrade-operated bridge in 2018, one of the sources said.
CDP, Macquarie and Blackstone declined to comment.
