Sacyr eleva su Ebitda el 7,2% y obtiene un beneficio neto de 47 millones de euros, pese a provisionar 85 millones por el laudo del Canal de Panamá05/11/2020
- Amid the complex global scenario caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, Sacyr's businesses have improved turnover, EBITDA, and profitability. This shows the strength of the multinational's strategy, focusing on concession assets.

Sacyr posts an Ebitda of €348 Million (+10%) boosted by the strength of its concession model in a global environment made challenging by Covid-1930/07/2020
The company's divisions—Concessions, Engineering and Infrastructure and Services—achieved profits of €108 million, compared to €47 million during the same period of 2019. This increase is in addition to a 100-basis-point rise in profitability to 16.7%.
The company has begun operations in the new normal without any significant impact. This showcases the success of the business model of the multinational, which generates around 80% of its EBITDA through concession-related assets with low demand risk.
The company's backlog of future revenue comes to €39.445 billion.
Sacyr promotes sustainability as one of its key pillars and strategic objectives. To that end, its corporate governance is fortified with a Sustainability and Corporate Governance Committee, attached to the Board of Directors, and a Sustainability Committee.
Sacyr increased its EBITDA by 10.4% to €348 million in the first half of 2020, a period marked by the global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, thanks to the robustness of its business model, which is becoming increasingly oriented toward concessions. In fact, 77% of its EBITDA came from the concession activity of its three major business areas: Concessions, Engineering and Infrastructure and Services.
Sacyr actively managed the situation in order, first and foremost, to protect its more than 40,000 employees worldwide. In addition, it ensured the continuity of its operations, some of which are considered essential or of public interest.
During the period, the multinational embarked upon the new normal in almost all of its operations without having recorded major impacts. Nevertheless, in March the Group made a precautionary provision of €30 million in the face of the uncertainty surrounding the evolution of the pandemic.
Revenues grew 3.5% between January and June, reaching €2.079 billion. This increase amounts to 8% relative to the size of the company, given the divestment of various assets during the last few months: Guadalcesa, generation and cogeneration plants, and various water-related assets in Portugal. The EBITDA posted (+10.4%) would increase by 19% if these asset disposals were discounted.
The net profit generated by the businesses reflects the positive performance of the three divisions of Sacyr despite COVID-19. It stood at €108 million, compared to €47 million in the first half of 2019.
The group's attributable net profit was €70 million, less than the €80 million achieved in the same period last year. Net profit was impacted by the profits and stock-market performance of Repsol, in which Sacyr owns a stake. The oil company's contribution to Sacyr's profits was -€18 million. The book value of Repsol was €8.66/share as at June 30th, 2020.
Sacyr improved the profitability of its businesses in the first half of the year, thus delivering on one of the company's priority objectives. The EBITDA margin was up 100 basis points reaching 16.7%.

In fact, Sacyr has doubled down and is now working tirelessly with government bodies and the authorities in fighting this disease, none more so than the Services division.
Sacyr is taking the necessary steps to resolve the situation and minimize its impact. According to the latest estimates, this situation has not impaired the company's normal course of business, although changes have been made to keep up with the rapidly changing landscape resulting from the crisis.

- Free TV in all rooms since before being requested by the Autonomous Community of Madrid
- Incorporation of personnel in the hotels fitted out to care for patients, one in Parla and one in Coslada.
- Full-time management of the crisis with the hospital’s clinical management; they have delegated any necessary infrastructure actions to our teams.
- Additionally, due to the current situation, a working group between the Spain and Portugal facilities has been created to share the measures taken in Madrid with our colleagues in Braga, Vila Franca and the Azores. It has joined forces with the transport interchanges team, which is also taking action on its facilities to prevent any contagion among its users.
Parking spaces. Sacyr Concessions has made free spaces available in the parking garage at Calle Daoiz y Velarde (Madrid) to health workers who need them. It is also keeping the Moncloa (Madrid) parking garage open and free of charge for health personnel who need it.
Rent holidays. Sacyr Concessions has granted rent holidays to tenants of commercial premises in the hospitals and interchanges that it manages and in the Setas de Sevilla.

It has already increased capacity by more than 49 beds. The first action was taken in just 24 hours: in the oncology block, an area was repurposed to accommodate 28 new admission beds.
The second was the repurposing of the library, which is located in the surgical block, to provide 21 new ICU beds. We are also continuing to work on new actions to provide up to 60 new beds in addition to those created in the hospital in areas adjacent to the library.
Sacyr reduces its business divisions to three to gain efficiency, in line with its strategic agenda14/04/2020
Sacyr has decided to restructure its corporate organization chart by merging its two EPC areas (Sacyr Engineering and Infrastructures and Sacyr Industrial) into one. In so doing, the group's operational divisions will be reduced to three: Sacyr Engineering and Infrastructures, Sacyr Concessions and Sacyr Services.
This simplifying of the operational structure, which must be ratified by Sacyr’s governance bodies in the coming weeks, is perfectly in line with Sacyr’s strategic agenda to once again become a group with a distinct concessions profile, with the contribution of two large divisions (Engineering and Infrastructures, and Services) that facilitate a more efficient vertical integration of the business for customers.
In addition, this simplification of the structure will lead to greater synergies between the three areas, higher profits due to the economies of scale and, as such, increased efficiency.
Large industrial projects
Sacyr Engineering and Infrastructures will absorb the Sacyr Industrial division, along with the wealth of experience it has accumulated in recent years.
Many successful projects have been executed, such as the La Pampilla refinery in Peru, the Cartagena de Indias regasification plant in Colombia, gas projects in Bolivia and Peru, industrial plants in Bolivia and Ecuador, the Sohar desalination plant in Oman, the Melbourne waste treatment plant and the NAIS irrigation network in Australia.
Merging to create one division with greater capacities will provide momentum for the construction activities of renewable energy plants and those related to the circular economy (water engineering, particularly desalination, urban solid waste recycling and treatment, reuse of materials, etc.) in which Sacyr has cutting-edge technologies. It will also continue to carry out its engineering activity and execute its turnkey projects at its oil and gas plants and across its electricity networks.
This new organizational model, which is more streamlined, compact and totally geared toward the group’s long-term objectives (increasing profitability and economic, financial and environmental sustainability), will continue to influence the control of risks across all stages of the group’s projects and the generation of cash flow.
Sacyr creates a sustainability and Corporate Governance committee to pledge its commitment to a more sustainable future06/03/2020
Sacyr has been strengthening its corporate governance bodies as a further show of its commitment to a more sustainable future. More precisely, it has set up a Sustainability and Corporate Governance Committee, attached to the Board of Directors, and a Sustainability Committee.
With these new committees, Sacyr is aiming to make further progress in sustainability and in collaborating with all its stakeholders in the fight against climate change as well as in fostering diversity and a proper work-life balance, safeguarding health and safety and promoting the positive social impact of its activities.
Sacyr increases its concessionary profile and raises its EBITDA to €680 million (+25%)28/02/2020
Sacyr achieved an EBITDA of €680 million in 2019, up by 25% compared with the previous financial year. Revenue grew by 10% over the year, to €4.17 billion.
The net profit generated by the businesses was €120 million (+48%), but the group’s share of net income was -€298 million, due to the impact of -€354 million caused by the holding in Repsol. This is exclusively an accounting impact, which does not affect the company’s cash flow, the operation of the businesses, the dividend or the group’s strategy. The active management of derivatives that protect the participation in Repsol has allowed monetizing more than 70 million euros of cash for the group.
In 2019, Sacyr made progress in the achievement of all its objectives. Sacyr placed the focus on the concessionary businesses, and this is reflected in its income statement: 80% of EBITDA, amounting to €538 million, came from concessionary activities in the past year.
In addition, the growth of the main indicators was accompanied in 2019 by an improvement in the profitability of the businesses, which is another of Sacyr’s key objectives. The EBITDA margin increased by two percentage points over the year, reaching 16.3%.
