13 II.-Transportation Concessions in Spain: Successful Schemes

14 General Considerations Basic regulatory framework for private sector participation in infrastructure projects dates back to 1972 (Law 8/1972 establishes legal framework for the construction, operation and maintenance of roads under concession schemes) Further developments since 1972 have provided a stable and reliable framework for investors and lenders A bill currently under consideration will consolidate and strenghen the concession system A key element is the strong support and involvement of the Spanish Administration

15 Goals of regulatory efforts Assumption of key risks by private sector - Construction - Operation & maintenance - Traffic - Financing Affordable tolls Mobilisation of large amounts of private financing into infrastructure projects Reallocation of Public Sector financing priorities

16 Successful Concesion Schemes Shadow toll concessions Real toll concessions

17 Common Features Strong government support, typically involving: - Concession agreement whith government undertakings - Maintenance of economic and financial equilibrium - Responsabilidad Patrimonial (Compensation upon early termination of concession) Specific terms (tenors of concessions, bidding criteria, maximun tolls, potential subsidies,etc) on a case-by-case basis Maximun concession tenor of up to 75 years

18 Main Features of Shadow Toll Concessions Granting authority (either central government or regional authorities) makes payments to the concession company according to the use of the road Payments made by granting authority are not considered as public indebteness Tipically, upside for investors is limited (reduction of toll payments upon achieving certain traffic volumes; reduction of concession tenor upon meeting certain returns, etc) Traffic is more predictable Lower traffic uncertainty may allow for more efficient financing schemes (bond financing and securitisation)

19 Main Features of Real Toll Concessions Tolls payable by users Higher traffic uncertainty Typically, upside for investors is not limited Financing structure typically more conservative

21 III.- Financing Transportation Projects

22 Financing Transportation Projects Up to date, infrastructure projects in Spain have been mostly funded by banks due to the competitiveness and flexibility of such financing: - Willingness to provide long tenors - Competitive pricing - Consistent with high leverages - Willingness to evaluate and assume traffic risk Banks willingness reflect: - Comfort with regulatory framework and strong involvement of the Administration - Successful track record of toll road concessions - Users acceptance of toll roads (annual ADT in toll roads has increased by 4,93% and 7,01% in the periods and , respectively)

23 Financing Transportation Projects However, Capital Markets funding (Bond finanicng an securitisation) will become increasingly popular due to: - Need of longer tenors - Bank financing will not be enough to meet needs derived from the infrastructure plan - Implications of BIS capital requirements on banks - Regulatory support (Concession bill facilitates capital markets transactions) Initially, Wrap-Ups from monolines will play a key role (Ex. Pamplona-Logroño toll road; Ruta de los Viñedos)

24 IV.- Case Studies: M-45 / R-2

25 Radial 2 Toll Road Part of a network of four access roads to Madrid from suburbs (high proportion of conmuting traffic). Ministerio de Fomento (Ministry of Public Works/Development) 80,9 Km real toll road, from Guadalajara to the M-50, Madrid´s third untolled beltway. The R-2 will go parallel to the N-II, an untolled road connecting Madrid to Zaragoza and Barcelona. A key feature is the obligation to build, free of charge, a portion of the untolled M-50. Granting Authority Description
