2020 SIGNIFICANT EVENTS

Some of the most significant events that took place during the year, are as follows

SHAREHOLDER REMUNERATION

In January 2020, Sacyr implemented the Flexible Dividend (“Scrip Dividend”) program approved at the 2019 Annual General Shareholders’ Meeting. Shareholders were able to choose between receiving one new share for every 46 shares outstanding or selling their pre-emptive subscription rights to Sacyr at a guaranteed fixed price of €0.056 gross per right.

More than 94% of Sacyr’s shareholders elected to receive the Flexible Dividend in shares, for which a total of 11,980,391 new shares were issued. These shares began trading on February 19, 2020.

More than 92% of shareholders elected to receive the Flexible Dividend in shares, for which a total of 11,878,992 new shares were issued, giving Sacyr’s new share capital a total of 616,451,031 shares.

The new shares began trading on the Spanish stock exchanges on February 10, 2021.

DIVESTMENT AND ASSET TURNOVER

In June 2020, having fulfilled the conditions precedent of the sale agreement, Sacyr announced the divestment of 95% of the mature asset “Guadalmedina Highway” for a total amount of 455 million euros, including the associated debt. This transaction has been divided into two parts:

  • A first, corresponding to 47.5% of the assets, and whose purchase and sale agreement was announced in October 2019, with the sale materializing during the first quarter of 2020.
  • A second part, corresponding to the remaining 47.5% of the assets, was signed at the beginning of the year and formalized in June, once the suspensive conditions of the agreement had been fulfilled.

Following this transaction, Sacyr retains 5% of the concession assets, which it will continue to operate and manage in the future.

CORPORATE RESTRUCTURING
In April, Sacyr decided to restructure its business areas, integrating its two EPC areas into a single division: Sacyr Engineering and Infrastructures and Sacyr Industrial. In this way, the group’s operating divisions are reduced to three: Sacyr Concessions (P3), Sacyr Engineering and Infrastructures and Sacyr Services.

This organizational simplification will lead to significant synergies between the three areas mentioned above, and will also allow for a more effective vertical integration of the business for customers and, therefore, greater efficiency.

It is also perfectly aligned with Sacyr’s strategic program to become, increasingly, a group with a markedly concessionary profile.

As a result of this, Sacyr Concessions (P3) has decided that the management and development of the Water segment (integral cycle) will be led by Sacyr Concessions (P3), so that most of the concession business is grouped under the same division.

ACTIVE MANAGEMENT OF THE REPSOL SHAREHOLDING

During 2020, Sacyr continued to be a core shareholder of Repsol through a 7.83% stake in the oil company (7.93% after deducting treasury stock). This year, as a result of Repsol’s “Flexible Dividend” program, Sacyr, through its investees: Sacyr Securities S.A., Sacyr Investments S.A.U. and Sacyr Investments II S.A.U., received a total dividend of 112.4 million euros (52 million euros at the beginning of January, on account of the 2019 results, and 60.4 million euros at the beginning of July, complementary to the 2019 results). Sacyr has actively managed its stake in the oil company in order to maximize its investment, which is protected in its entirety through three derivative structures financial derivatives.

DERIVATIVE ON TREASURY STOCK

On July 10, Sacyr signed a derivative contract with a credit institution for a total of 10,000,000 Sacyr shares, divided in two tranches:

  • A tranche of 5,000,000 shares consisting of a buy option (call) in favour of Sacyr and a sales option (put) in favour of the credit institution, both with an initial exercise price of approximately €1.80 and an average maturity of one year.
  • Another tranche of 5,000,000 shares consisting of a buy option (call) in favour of Sacyr and a sales option (put) in favour of the credit institution, both with an initial exercise price of approximately €1.80 and an average maturity of two years.

Panama

During the month of September, the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) has ruled the award on the basalt and concrete formula claims, laboratories and geological faults presented by the consortium Grupos Unidos Por el Canal (GUPC). This award determines that the consortium has to return part of the claims collected, around 240 million dollars, to the Panama Canal Authority (ACP). On the other hand, approximately $25 million was recognized in favor of GUPC for additional laboratory expenses and for the existence of undetected faults in the field.

EXIT OF NON-STRATEGIC MARKETS

During the month of October, Sacyr signed a sale and purchase agreement with the Angolan group Griner for the sale of three subsidiaries: Sacyr Somague Angola, Sacyr Somague Mozambique and CVC Sacyr Somague in Cape Verde. The amount of this transaction amounts to 33 million euros.

CONSOLIDATION IN STRATEGIC MARKETS

The Sacyr Group has been awarded its first concession in the US market, meeting one of the strategic milestones set. The project consists of the operation, maintenance and improvement of the power, water and steam generation and distribution systems on the University of Idaho campus.
