ACS has been successful in structuring a deal that uses Hochtief as a vehicle to acquire Abertis. Last week Hochtief proposed a competing offer for Abertis (an all-cash offer at €18.76 per share, and a 0.1281 HOT GY share alternative, both subject to minimum acceptances) which has a larger-than-expected premium to Atlantia’s pending offer (+14%).
