Saba, a subsidiary of Abertis Infraestructuras has acquired 40% from its Italian subsidiary, Saba Italia, which had previously been owned by Autostrade, SpA. Once the operation, which has meant an investment of 11.3 million, has concluded, Saba will control 100% of Saba Italia and will continue to develop the company’s strategic plan thanks to the knowledge acquired in the transalpine market over the last six years.
saba.jpgIt should be remembered that Saba started its activity in Italy in 1999 with the acquisition of Italinpa, which until then belonged to the Italian public holding company IRI and which, after being bought, changed its name to Saba Italia. Later, in 2001, Autostrade joined the society with the purchase of 40% of its capital, in an operation that enabled a local, prestigious shareholder with a wide knowledge of the market to integrate.

Over these last four years, Saba Italia has managed to consolidate itself as one of the most important companies in the car park sector in the country, increasing the 21 car parks it had in 2001 to the 41 it currently has, in cities such as Rome, Milan, Trieste, Verona, Assisi and Rieti, amongst others.

These disinvestments by Autostrade responds to its objective of concentrating on the investment programme for modernising and strengthening the network of motorways in Italy and the development of its activity to improve mobility technology.

abertis values this stage of collaboration in car parks with Autostrade positively and maintain the cooperation with its international partners in areas of common interests.
