ANA Aeroportos de Portugal potential bidders reportedly submitted their non-binding offers for the Portuguese airport operator, with CCR of Brazil, Odinsa of Colombia and Corporación América of Argentina reportedly among the parties moving forward in the process, according to a report by Jornal de Negocios. Odinsa is reportedly the lead in a consortium with Portuguese industrial conglomerate Mota-Engil, according to a Diario Economico report. Portuguese highway management company Brisa reportedly decided not to proceed, with an unnamed official stating, "Current market conditions imply that in order to gain a controlling position in ANA, even jointly [with a partner], it was necessary to involve significantly more capital, which isn't compatible with [our current situation]." Meanwhile, ANA's final offer submission deadline will reportedly be in 2012, with the expected takeover date to be in 2013, according to a Publico report.

There was, inevitably, a political overlay to the event, with the (Jun-2016) UK referendum on continuing membership of the European Union (‘Brexit’), the (Nov-2016) election of President Trump in the US and associated ‘uncertainty’ dominating events.
Otherwise, the concern was, as always, the ‘pipeline’ of airport privatisation details, or rather the lack of them, while the hope was for the continuation of the trend towards PPP deals.
