25 July 2006 - Divestments - Canada
VINCI Concessions Canada Inc. recently sold the controlling stake which it held in the company operating the concession for the Confederation Bridge linking the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island to BPC Maritime Corporation, which already held 34% of SCDI (Strait Crossing Development Inc.).
This transaction, which reduces VINCI Concession's stake in SCDI from 49.9% to 18.8%, fits with the company's policy of dynamic management of stakes in infrastructure concessions.
