Eutelsat Communications and Abertis Group have reached an agreement on the sale of Eutelsat’s 33.69% stake in Hispasat to Abertis.

It follows the initiation of the process in July 2016 when Eutelsat exercised the put option granted in 2008 by Abertis, Hispasat’s majority shareholder.

The agreed price for Eutelsat’s stake is USD 338.4 million, representing an EBITDA multiple of 7.1x based on Hispasat’s 2016 results. The closing of the transaction is subject to Spanish government approval and other customary conditions precedent, and is expected in the second half of calendar year 2017.

The divestment of the stake is consistent with Eutelsat’s strategy of rationalising its portfolio of assets in order to maximise cash generation.
