Pursuant to the strategy announced in March 2018 consisting in taking part to the market consolidation in countries where the Group could obtain a leading or co-leading position, the Indigo Group has just entered into an agreement to acquire 100% of the share capital of Besix Park NV, a major player on the Belgian parking market, operating about 17% of the parking spaces nationwide, totaling more than €12m in revenues. The transaction, that should be finalized before summer 2018, enables the Group to become the number 1 player in terms of parking spaces operated on the Belgian parking market and to get closer to the number 2 player in terms of revenue.
Meanwhile, the Group pursues the geographical refocus of its portfolio. After selling its interests in Qatar in February 2018, then its car park in Russia in April 2018, the Group is considering a potential sale of its subsidiaries in the UK, Germany, Czech Republic and Slovakia. All these countries account for less than 6% of the 2017 EBITDA of the Group.
The Group confirms its positioning as a key partner of municipalities for parking and individual mobility solutions, as well as its solid and profitable growth strategy in countries where it holds a leading or co-leading position, in the long term and in line with its BBB rating, while pursuing its innovation and quality policy focused on its customers.
