Auto-Estradas de Portugal (Brisa) entered (23-Apr-2012) a MoU with CCR to establish a joint undertaking to assess and explore the opportunity of acquiring and managing ANA – Aeroportos de Portugal and related airport operations, within the scope of the privatisation process announced by the Portuguese Government. The MoU follows the recent winding-up of Asterion ACE, a vehicle created for the purposes of participating in a former project co-led by Brisa for the acquisition of ANA and the construction and operation of the new Lisbon Airport. Brisa and CCR identified the privatisation of ANA and the airport management industry as business opportunities that fit into their field of expertise resulting in joint cooperation.
