Translated version of this PSD: Hungarian
The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) together with Aberdeen European Infrastructure Partners LP has acquired a stake in M6 Tolna Zrt, the concession company operating Hungary's M6 motorway between the cities of Dunaújváros and Szekszárd (65km).
The M6 motorway is a north-south motorway in Hungary running along the Danube connecting Budapest with Pécs and continuing to the Croatian border.
Through this investment, the Bank will contribute to bringing existing operating PPPs in Hungary to the next stage of their lifecycle allowing new sources of capital and more sophisticated long-term financiers to enter this market, further demonstrating that PPPs remain an effective and sustainable way of procuring infrastructure assets.
The expected transition impact of the Project stems primarily from supporting the development of a secondary equity market for PPPs in the region. The Project will be the first to fall under the scope of a new framework aimed at supporting the development of a secondary market for maturing PPP projects across the Bank's region.
