VINCI Highways, VINCI Concessions’ subsidiary, has finalised the acquisition of 100% of LAMSAC company, concessionaire-holder of Línea Amarilla, a 25 km toll road around the center of Lima, and PEX, LAMSAC’s electronic toll collection operator. The deal is based on an enterprise value of LAMSAC and PEX at PEN 5.5billion (around EUR 1.5 billion) as of 31 December 2015.
LAMSAC holds a concession contract with the Municipality of Lima to build, operate and maintain the Línea Amarilla until November 2049.
