These figures are proof of the strength of Sacyr’s business model, which is predictable, recurring, and stable, in a challenging and uncertain macroeconomic scenario. 83% of the EBITDA came from P3 assets with low demand risk.
Revenues grew by 13% in the first quarter of the year, to €1,196 million, and the net business profit raised to €40 million (+57%). The Group’s net result decreased by 21%, to €20 million, due to the fact that the profit last year included the company’s participation in Repsol.
The company’s growth was achieved in a challenging international scenario, due to the Covid-19 and the raw materials shortage and logistics crises.
Net recourse debt went from €681 million to €798 million, largely due to the investments carried out in this period. The commitment for 2022 is to reduce net recourse debt by nearly €200 million, in relation to the figure at the end of 2021.
The company continues to work on cutting net recourse debt, with the aim of having reduced it drastically by the end of the Strategic Plan, in 2025.
Operating cash flow rose to €150 million, with a 28% growth compared to the first quarter of 2021.

Change is here
GeOS aims to homogenize and optimize Sacyr’s project site management:
- Ensures a single management system common to all sites
- Guarantees comprehensive site management
- Simplifies site management processes through digitization and automation.
GeOS is already implemented in Portugal: After the initial success of the pilot on the Alandroal site in March 2021, this solution has come into effect in all projects in Portugal since then.
GeOS is being gradually deployed in the rest of the countries: Implementation has begun in Spain and Brazil. Peru will be the next country to apply the solution.
We want to thank the effort of all the teams involved in the success of GeOS.
Thanks to us all Sacyr is more digital and efficient!
