  • NOTES TO THE 2011 CONSOLIDATED ANNUAL ACCOUNTS1. GENERAL INFORMATIONAbertis Infraestructuras, S.A. (hereinafter abertis or the Parent Company)was incorporated in Barcelona on 24 February 1967. The Company’sregistered office is in Avenida del Parc Logistic nº 12-20, Barcelona. On 30May 2003 the Company’s name was changed from Acesa Infraestructuras,S.A. to its current name.abertis is the parent company of a group of companies mainly engaged inthe management of mobility and communications infrastructures operatingin three sectors: motorway concessions, telecommunications and airports.As shown in Note 26, the Group sold the car parks and logistics facilitiessectors over the year. Therefore, their resources are classified asdiscontinued operations in accordance with IFRS 5 "Non-current assets heldfor sale and discontinued operations".Its business purposes include the construction, maintenance and operationof motorways under concession; the management of motorway concessionsin Spain and internationally; the construction of roads; ancillaryconstruction activities, maintenance and operation of motorways, includingservice stations, integrated logistics and/or transport centres and/or carparks, as well as any other activity related to transport infrastructures andcommunications and/or telecommunications for the mobility and transportof people, goods and information, under the necessary authorisation, as thecase may be.The Company can undertake its business purposes, especially itsconcessionary activity, directly or indirectly through its shareholding inother companies, subject, in this respect, to the legal provisions in force atany time.Note 29.c includes information on the Group’s concession contracts.The lists of the subsidiary and multi-group companies of abertis, whichtogether with the parent Company make up the consolidated group(hereinafter, the Group) at 31 December 2011 are set out in Appendix Iand Appendix II, respectively. 10
  • The aggregates contained in all the financial statements that form part ofthe consolidated annual accounts (consolidated balance sheet, consolidatedincome statement, consolidated statement of comprehensive income,consolidated statement of changes in net equity, consolidated cash flowstatement) and the notes to the consolidated annual accounts areexpressed in thousand Euros, unless explicitly stated in million Euros.2. BASIS OF PRESENTATIONa) Basis of presentationThese consolidated annual accounts have been prepared in accordance withthe International Financial Reporting Standards adopted by the EuropeanUnion under Regulation (EC) No. 1606/2002 of the European Parliamentand the Council on 19 July 2002 and others in force at 31 December 2011(hereinafter, IFRS). In addition, the obligation to present consolidatedannual accounts under EU approved IFRS is governed by the final eleventhprovision of the Tax, Administrative and Corporate Measures Act, Law62/2003/30 December (Official State Gazette (BOE) of 31 December 2004).These consolidated annual accounts prepared under IFRS have beenformulated by the Directors of abertis in order to provide a true and fairview of its consolidated equity, financial situation for the year ended 31December 2011, consolidated results from its operations, the changes inconsolidated net equity and consolidated cash flows in accordance with theabove-mentioned legislation in force.The first consolidated annual accounts to be presented under IFRS werethose for the year ended 31 December 2005. Consequently, IFRS-1, “First-time Adoption of the International Financial Reporting Standards” wasapplied at the transition date of 1 January 2004. 11
  • As required by IFRS, these 2011 consolidated annual accounts include thefigures corresponding for the previous year for comparative purposes.These figures have been duly restated as result of the following concepts: In accordance with IFRS 5 "Non-Assets held for sale and discontinued operations" and, mainly as a result of the disposal of the car parks and logistics facilities businesses in October 2011 (see details in Note 26), the 2010 income and expenses corresponding to these businesses have been classified as discontinued operations in line with the figures for 2011. In accordance with the criteria indicated in Note 3.0, construction activities and upgrades in infrastructure carried out by the Group in 2010 (Euros 337 million) have been recorded as income and expenses. These figures were mentioned in Note 30 of the 2010 consolidated annual accounts, although they were not broken down in the income statement.As stated in Note 3.q, at the date of preparation of these consolidatedannual accounts, there are standards and interpretations which during 2011were revised and being studied by the corresponding internationalregulatory bodies. In any case, the application of these will be consideredby the Group once they are approved by the European Union, as the casemay be.The preparation of the consolidated annual accounts under IFRS requiresManagement to make certain accounting estimates and certain judgements.These are continuously evaluated and are based on the historical experienceand other factors, including the expectations of future events, which areconsidered reasonable under the circumstances. Whilst the estimations havebeen made based on the best information available at the time of preparingthese consolidated annual accounts, in accordance with IAS-8, anymodification in the future of these estimations would be applied from thatpoint on, recognising the impact of the change in the estimates made in theconsolidated income statement for the year in question. 12
  • The main estimates and judgements considered in preparing the consolidatedannual accounts are the following:  Assumptions used in the impairment test to determine the recoverability of goodwill and other non-financial (see Notes 3.c, 6 and 7) and financial assets (see Notes 3.d and 11) assets.  Fair value of derivatives and other financial instruments (see Notes 3.e and 10).  Estimates of the intervention cycles in determining the provisions under IFRIC 12 (see Notes 3.n and 19).  Fair value of assets and liabilities in business combinations (see Note 22).  Financial investments available sale (see Notes 3.d.i, 3.h and 9).  Changes in the consolidation scope (see Notes 8 and 9).  Actuarial hypotheses used in determining the liabilities for post- employment obligations and other commitments with employees (see Notes 3.l and 18).  Corporate income tax (see Notes 3.k and 17).The consolidated annual accounts have been prepared on the basis ofhistorical cost, except in the cases specifically mentioned in these Notes, suchas those items measured at fair value, which are mentioned in Note 4.b.The consolidated annual accounts have been prepared on the basis ofuniformity in recognition and measurement. If new standards modifying theexisting valuation principles become applicable, they will be applied inaccordance with the transition criteria set down in said standards.Certain amounts in the consolidated income statement and the consolidatedbalance sheet have been grouped together for clarity, with their breakdownbeing shown in the Notes to the consolidated annual accounts.The distinction presented in the consolidated balance sheet between currentand non-current entries has been made on the basis of whether the assetsand liabilities fall due within one year or more.Additionally, the consolidated annual accounts include all the information thatis considered necessary for their correct presentation under company law inforce in Spain. 13
  • The consolidated annual accounts of abertis together with the parentCompany’s annual accounts and the accounts of subsidiary companies willbe presented at their respective Shareholders’ General Meetings in duetime. The Directors of abertis expect these accounts to be approvedwithout significant changes.b) Consolidation principlesi) Consolidation methodsSubsidiary CompaniesSubsidiary Companies are all those entities in which abertis directly orindirectly controls the financial and operating policies. This normally occurswhen more than half of the voting rights are held. Additionally, in order toevaluate whether abertis controls another entity, the existence and effectof potential voting rights that are can be exercised or convertible at thistime are also considered. Subsidiary companies are consolidated as fromthe date on which control passes to abertis, and they are de-consolidatedon the date that control ceases to exist.Subsidiary companies are fully consolidated.Appendix I to these Notes provides a breakdown of critical information onall the subsidiary companies included in the consolidation scope at 31December 2011.Multigroup Companies (Joint Ventures)These are companies that have a contractual arrangement with a third partyto share control of their activity and where the strategic financial andoperating decisions related thereto require the unanimous arrangement of allthe parties that share control.The interests of the Group in joint ventures are accounted for under theproportional consolidation method.Appendix II to these Notes gives information on the multigroup companiesincluded in consolidation scope at 31 December 2011. 14
  • AssociatesAssociates are companies in which abertis has significant influence and along-term relationship that fosters and influences its business in spite of asmall representation in the management and control bodies. This isgenerally accompanied by a shareholding of between 20% and 50% of thevoting rights unless it can be clearly demonstrated that no such influenceexists or when abertis holds less than 20% and it can be clearlydemonstrated that said influence does exist.Investments in associates are accounted for by equity accounting andinitially stated at acquisition cost. The shareholding of abertis in associatesincludes, as per IAS 28, goodwill (net of any loss or accumulatedimpairment) identified in the acquisition and recorded under “Investmentsin associates” in the consolidated balance sheet.In the case of associates acquired in stages, IAS 28 does not specificallydefine how to determine the cost of the acquisitions. Therefore, the Groupinterprets that the cost of a shareholding in an associate acquired in stagesis the sum of the amounts paid in each acquisition plus the share of theprofits and other changes in shareholders equity less any impairment whichmay have occurred.Thereafter, the share of abertis in the earnings and reserves of associates isrecognised in the consolidated income statement and as consolidationreserves (other comprehensive income), respectively, with the value of theshareholding as the balancing entry in both cases. Dividend receipts and/oraccrual after acquisition are adjusted against the value of the shareholding.In the event that the Group’s share in the losses of an associate is equal to orgreater than the financial value of its shareholding, including any otherunsecured outstanding accounts receivable, additional losses will not berecognised unless obligations have been incurred or payments made in thename of the associate.Appendix III to these Notes provides the particulars of the associatesincluded in the consolidation scope under equity accounting at 31 December2011. 15
  • ii) Standardisation of timing and valuationExcept for Eutelsat Communications, S.A. which year end is 30 June, all thecompanies included in the consolidation scope close their financial year on31 December and for the purposes of the consolidation process therespective financial statements prepared under IFRS principles have beenused. In accordance with current legislation, these companies presentindividual annual accounts in accordance with the standards applicable intheir country of origin.In the specific case of Eutelsat Communications, S.A. the respective timingstandardisation has been undertaken and for the purposes of theconsolidation process the respective financial statements prepared underIFRS principles for the year ended 31 December have been used.The standards of valuation applied by the Group companies largely coincide.However, whenever necessary the corresponding adjustments are made tostandardise valuation to ensure uniformity of the accounting policies of thecompanies included in the consolidation scope with the policies adopted bythe Group.iii) Differences on first consolidationThe Group uses the acquisition method to account for the acquisition ofsubsidiary companies in accordance with the revised IFRS 3. The acquisitioncost is the fair value of the assets, the equity and the liabilities onacquisition date, plus any asset or liability resulting from the contingentconsideration. The costs directly attributed to the acquisition are recogniseddirectly in the consolidated income statement for the year in which it takesplace.The identifiable assets acquired, the liabilities and contingencies assumed ina business combination are initially valued at their fair value on acquisitiondate, including the non-controlling interests. For each business combination,the Group can elect to recognise any non-controlling interest in the acquiredcompany at fair value or for the proportional part of the non-controllinginterest of the net identifiable assets of the acquired entity.The excess of the acquisition cost over the fair value of the net assetsidentified in the transaction is accounted for as consolidation goodwill, whichis assigned to the respective cash generating unit. 16
  • On the contrary, if the acquisition cost is less than the fair value of the netassets of the company acquired, if the purchase is made underadvantageous conditions, the difference is recognised directly in thestatement of comprehensive income.Consolidation goodwill is not written off on a straight-line basis and issubject to an annual impairment test, as indicated in Note 3.c.In the case of step-acquisitions, when control is obtained, the fair value ofthe assets and liabilities of the business acquired must be determined byincluding the part already owned. The differences that arise between theassets and liabilities already recognised must be recognised in the incomestatement.In case of step-acquisitions of associates, goodwill is calculated in eachacquisition based on the cost and the share of the fair value of the acquirednet assets on each acquisition date.As indicated in Note 2.b.i, the goodwill related to acquisitions of associatesis included as part of the respective shareholding, and is valuated inaccordance with the procedures set out in Note 3.b.iv.iv) Elimination of internal operationsThe balances and intercompany transactions between companies of theGroup are eliminated, as are the unrealised profits from third partiesgenerated by transactions between Group companies. Unrealised losses arealso eliminated, unless the transaction provides evidence of a loss due tothe impairment of the transferred asset.In transactions with joint ventures (multigroup companies) the share in theprofit or loss from operations with Group companies is only recorded in thepart corresponding to other participants.The profit and loss from transactions between the Group and its associatesis recorded in the Groups financial statements only to the extent that theycorrespond to the shareholdings of other investors in the associates whichare not linked to the investor. 17
  • v) Translation of financial statements in foreign currenciesThe financial statements of foreign companies, none of which operate inhyperinflationary economies, prepared in a functional currency (that of themain economic area in which the entity operates) distinct from thepresentation currency of the consolidated annual accounts (Euros) aretranslated into Euros using the year end exchange rate, whereby: Net equity is translated at historical exchange rates. Entries in the income statement are translated using the average exchange rate for the period as an approximation of the exchange rate at the transaction date. The other balance sheet entries are translated at the year end exchange rate.As a result of using this method, the currency translation differencesgenerated are included under “Reserves – Cumulative translationadjustments” in net equity on the consolidated balance sheet.vi) OthersThe currency translation differences that arise from the translation of netinvestment in foreign companies, and from loans and other instruments innon-Euro currencies designated as hedges on these investments, arerecorded against net equity. When they are sold, said cumulative translationadjustments are recognised in the income statement as part of theconsolidated gain or loss on the sale.The adjustments to goodwill and the fair value that arise from theacquisition of a foreign entity are considered as assets and liabilities of theforeign entity and are translated using the year end exchange rate.vii) Variations in the consolidation scopeThe most significant changes in the consolidation scope and in thecompanies falling under said scope in 2011 have been as follows: On 11 April 2011 incorporation of the company Saba Infraestructuras, S.A. fully owned by Abertis Infraestructuras, S.A. This company has been fully consolidated. 18
  • Within the framework of the reorganisation of the structure of abertis businesses as detailed in Note 26, on 18 May 2011 the car parks and logistics facilities businesses have been provided to this company through contribution of all the shares held by Abertis Infraestructuras, S.A. in Saba Aparcamientos, S.A. and Abertis Logística, S.A. through a non-monetary capital increase. In June 2011, the General Meeting of Shareholders of abertis approved the payment of an extraordinary interim dividend for the profits of the year of Euros 0.67 per share which may be optionally exchanged for shares in Saba Infraestructuras, S.A. (see Note 13.c and 26). Following this payment, abertis then held 78.06% of the aforementioned company. Finally, on 26 October 2011, Abertis Infraestructuras, S.A. sold its entire shareholding which on the aforementioned date it held in Saba Infraestructuras, S.A. This sale was carried out in accordance with the share purchase contract which abertis held with Criteria CaixaHolding, S.A.U. (and other third parties), see Note 26. With effect on 31 December 2011, the classification of the 14.61% holding in the capital of Brisa has changed from an available-for-sale financial asset to a shareholding in an associate and now recorded using equity accounting (See Note 8 and 9).Other changes having a minor impact have been as follows: On 18 May 2011 incorporation of the company Gestora del Espectro, S.L., fully owned by Retevisión I, S.A. This company has been fully consolidated. Incorporation of the company Autopistas Metropolitanas de Puerto Rico, LLC (metropistas), 45% owned by abertis are recorded using equity accounting. In September 2011 this company was awarded the concession for managing the PR-22 and PR-5 motorways in Puerto Rico (see Note 8). Increase, with effect on 1 April 2011, of sanef’s shareholding in Sanef Tolling, Ltd from 70% to 100%. Increase, with effect on 1 January 2011, of sanef’s shareholding in Bet Eire Flow from 80% to 100%. On 30 December 2011 sale of the company Túnel del Cadí, S.A.C., recorded at that time using equity accounting, in which abertis had an indirect shareholding of 37.21% (see Note 8). 19
  • On 20 December 2011 sale of the company Pt Operational Services Limited (PTY), recorded at that time using equity accounting, in which abertis had a shareholding of 33.30%. Exit from the consolidation scope in May 2011 of the company Acesa Italia, S.r.L., in which abertis had an indirect shareholding of 100% as a result of its liquidation, following the sale of the 6.68% shareholding in Atlantia. Exit from the consolidation scope in June 2011 of the companies Aldergrove International Airport Limited, Aldergrove Airport Limited and Aldergrove Car Parks, in which abertis had an indirect shareholding of 90%, as a result of their liquidation. Exit from the consolidation scope in August 2011 of the company MB121 Limited, in which abertis had an indirect shareholding of 90%, as a result of its liquidation. Exit from the consolidation scope in November 2011 of the company TBI Global Limited, in which abertis had an indirect shareholding of 90%, as a result of its liquidation. Takeover merger of companies of ACDL Group TBI Cargo Inc and TBI (US) Holdings Limited, the latter 90% owned abertis (through acdl).In addition, with effect on 21 December 2011 Abertis Infraestructuras, S.A.sold to Abertis Autopistas España, S.A. (with no impact on theseconsolidated annual accounts as both companies belong to the consolidationscope) the shareholdings of the companies Autopistas ConcesionariaEspañola, S.A. (acesa), Infraestructures Viàries de Catalunya, S.A.(invicat), Autopistas Aumar Concesionaria Española, S.A. (aumar) andIberpistas, Concesionaria Española, S.A. (iberpistas), with the aim ofgrouping together all the operator companies of Spanish motorways underone single company responsible for joint management of all of thosecompanies.Additionally, in 2010 there were no changes with a significant impact on theconsolidation scope or on the companies making up the scope although thefollowing changes with a lesser impact on the corresponding consolidatedaccounts were recorded: On 3 June 2010, the associate Centro Intermodal de Logística, S.A. (cilsa) sold its entire stake in the Group subsidiary Consorcio de Plataformas Logísticas, S.A. (cpl), and reduced the indirect shareholding of abertis as at that date from 66,68% to 51%. 20
  • On 30 December 2010 the shareholding of abertis (through thesubsidiary Abertis Logística, S.A.) in Consorcio de PlataformasLogísticas, S.A. (cpl), a fully consolidated company, rose from theaforementioned 51% to 64.5%, through the capital increase that thelatter performed, which was subscribed by Abertis Logística, S.A.through a non-cash contribution of the 32% stake it held in CentroIntermodal de Logística, S.A. (cilsa).As a result of the non-cash contribution made by the othershareholder of Consorcio de Plataformas Logísticas, S.A. (cpl) inorder to subscribe the aforementioned capital increase, cpl has cometo own 44% of Centro Intermodal de Logística, S.A. (cilsa), and,accordingly, this company, in light of the new shareholderarrangements as from that date, has gone from being accounted forby equity accounting to proportional consolidation effective 30December 2010. Consequently, the indirect shareholding of abertisof cilsa was 28.38%.The shareholding operations at 30 December 2010 did not have asignificant impact on equity.Increase in the shareholding of abertis in Saba Aparcamientos, S.A.(saba), from 99.46% a un 99.48%.Increase in the shareholding of Saba Aparcamientos, S.A. inParcheggi Pisa, S.r.L. from 70% to 80%, and, accordingly, theindirect shareholding of abertis amounted to 79.58%.Increase in the shareholding of Saba Aparcamientos, S.A. in SabaAparcament de Santa Caterina, S.L. from 92% to 100%, and,accordingly, the indirect shareholding of abertis amounted to99.48%.Increase in the shareholding of abertis in Autopistas de Puerto Ricoand Compañía, S.E. (APR) from 75% to 100%.Sale in September 2010 of Rabat Parking, S.A. in which abertis hadan indirect shareholding of 50.72%.Teledifusión de Madrid, S.A., in which abertis had an indirectshareholding of 80%, left the consolidation scope in June 2010.Takeover merger of the Group companies Saba Campo San GiacomoS.r.L. and Saba Italia S.p.A., that latter of which is 99.48% owned byabertis (through Saba Aparcamientos, S.A.). 21
  • Incorporation of the company Overon US, Inc., fully owned by Servicios Audiovisuales Overon, S.L. (overon), proportionally consolidated by the Group by virtue of current shareholders’ arrangements (abertis holds an indirect 51% stake). Incorporation of the company Impulso Aeroportuario del Pacífico, S.A. de C.V., 99.9% owned by the associate Aeropuertos Mexicanos del Pacífico, S.A. de C.V. (AMP), consolidated by equity accounting (abertis holds an indirect stake of 33.33%). Incorporation of the company Parcheggio Largo Bellini S.r.L 80% owned by Saba Italia S.p.A and fully consolidated. Through Saba Aparcamientos, S.A. abertis holds an indirect stake of 79.58%. Incorporation of the company Constructura de Infraestructura Vial SAS, 40% owned by abertis. This company has been consolidated by equity accounting. Incorporation of the company Consorci de Parcs Logístics del Penedés, S.L., fully owned by Abertis Logística, S.A. This company has been fully consolidated. Incorporation of the company Consorci de Parcs Logístics Toulouse, fully owned by Consorcio de Plataformas Logísticas, S.A. (cpl). This company has been fully consolidated.viii) Transactions with non-controlling interestsUnder IAS 27 revised, transactions with non-controlling interests arerecorded as transactions with the owners of Group equity. Accordingly, inthe purchases of non-controlling interests, the difference between theconsideration paid and the respective proportion of the book value of thenet assets of the subsidiary impacts net equity. Likewise, the gains or lossfrom the sale of non-controlling interests are also recognized in the netequity of the Group. 22
  • In the event that significant influence or control is lost, the remaininginterest is stated once again at fair value, and the difference in relation tothe investment previously recorded is recognized in the consolidated incomestatement for the year. Additionally, any amount previously recognized inother comprehensive income in relation to this entity is recorded as if theGroup had directly sold all the related assets and liabilities, which wouldmean, as the case may be, that the amounts previously recognized in othercomprehensive income would be reclassified to the consolidated incomestatement for the year. If the decrease in the shareholding in an associatedoes not imply a loss of significant influence, the proportional part formerlyrecognized under Other comprehensive income would be reclassified to theincome statement.3. ACCOUNTING POLICIESThe most significant accounting policies applied in the preparation of theseconsolidated annual accounts are as follows:a) Property, plant and equipment (PPE)Property, plant and equipment are accounted for at cost of acquisition lessdepreciation and the accumulated amount of any loss in value. Property,plant and equipment includes the legal revaluations applied in years prior to1 January 2004 allowed under local accounting standards, which value hasbeen taken as cost of acquisition as permitted under IFRS-1 “First-timeAdoption of International Financial Reporting Standards”.Capital grants received reduce the cost of acquisition of property, plant andequipment and are recorded when the requirements are met in order todemand payment of the grant. Grants are released to profit and loss on astraight-line basis depending on the useful life of the asset financedreducing the depreciation charge for the year.Personnel costs and other expenses, as well as net financing costs directlyrelated to property, plant and equipment, are capitalised as part of theinvestment until brought into use.Costs of refurbishment, extension or improvement of property, plant andequipment are capitalised only when they increase the capacity,productivity or extend the useful life of the asset, provided that it is possibleto know or estimate the net carrying value of the assets which are writtenoff when replaced. 23
  • The costs of repairs and maintenance are charged to the consolidatedincome statement in the year in which they are incurred.The investment in infrastructure recorded by the operator companies underPPE includes the assets over which the Grantor holds no control (not ownedby Grantor given that it does not control the residual value of the assets atthe end of the concession), although they are necessary for the operationand management of the infrastructure. These assets mainly comprise thebuildings used in operations, the toll facilities and material, video-surveillance, etc.The depreciation of property, plant and equipment is calculated on astraight line basis using the estimated useful life of the assets, taking intoconsideration wear and tear derived from normal use.The depreciation rates used to calculate the impairment of property, plantand equipment are as follows: Asset Rate Buildings and other constructions 2-14 % Machinery 6-30 % Tooling 7-30 % Other installations 7-20 % Furniture 10-20 % Computer equipment 20-33 % Other property, plant and equipment 8-25 % Other assets for infrastructure management (*) (*) The depreciation rates for the most significant assets related to infrastructure management are as follows: Asset Rate Toll installations 8-12 % Toll machinery 10-12 % Others 10-20 %When the net carrying value of an asset exceeds its estimated recoverablevalue, said value is immediately reduced to its recoverable value, and theeffect is taken to the consolidated income statement for the year. 24
  • b) Goodwill and other intangible assetsThe intangible assets indicated below are recorded at acquisition cost lessthe accumulated amortisation and any loss due to impairment, useful lifebeing evaluated on the basis of a prudent estimate. Capital grants receivedreduce the cost of acquisition of the intangible asset and are recorded whenthe requirements are met in order to demand payment of the grant. Grantsare released to profit and loss on a straight-line basis depending on theuseful life of the asset financed reducing the amortisation charge for theyear.The net carrying value of intangible assets is reviewed for possibleimpairment when certain events or changes indicate that their net carryingvalue may not be recoverable.i) Research and development expensesResearch costs are expensed as they are incurred, whilst the expenses ondevelopment incurred in a project are capitalised if the project is feasiblefrom a technical and commercial perspective, if there are sufficient technicaland financial resources to complete the project, if the costs incurred can bedetermined in a reliable manner as established by the internationalstandard, and the generation of future profits is probable. These arerecorded at their cost of acquisition.The amortisation is made on the basis of the estimated useful life for eachproject (between 3 and 5 years).ii) Computer applicationsRefers principally to the amounts paid for access to ownership or for the rightto use computer programs, only when usage is expected to cover severalyears.The computer applications are stated at their acquisition cost and amortisedon the basis of their useful life (between 3 and 5 years). Maintenanceexpenses on these computer applications are charged to the incomestatement in the year in which they are incurred. 25
  • iii) Administrative concessionsAdministrative concessions are listed as assets valued at the total amount ofthe payments made to obtain them.IFRIC 12 regulates the treatment of public-to-private service concessionarrangements when: The Grantor controls or regulates which services the operator must provide with the infrastructure, to whom these services must be rendered, and, at what price, and The Grantor controls the entire significant residual interest in the infrastructure at the end of the arrangement.Under these concession arrangements, the operator acts as a serviceprovider, specifically, on the one hand, construction services orinfrastructure enhancement, and, on the other hand, operational andmaintenance service during the term of the arrangement. The considerationreceived for these services is recorded bearing in mind the type ofcontractual right received: In cases in which the right is granted to charge a price to users for the user of the public service, and the latter is not unconditional but depends on the fact that the users actually use the service, the consideration for the construction or enhancement service is recorded as an intangible asset under “Other intangible assets – administrative concessions” in application of the intangible asset model, in which the risk of demand is borne by the operator. This model is applicable to most concessionary companies. If an unconditional right is granted by the Grantor (or on its account) to receive cash or other financial assets, and the Grantor has little or no capacity to avoid the payment, the consideration for the construction or enhancement service is recorded as a financial asset under “Debtors and other receivables – public administration debtors” (see section d.ii of this Note) in application of the financial model, in which the operator bears no risk of demand (payment is made even if the infrastructure is not used since the Grantor guarantees payment to the Operator of a fixed or specifiable amount or of the deficit, if any). This model is residually applicable for the Group to the odd airport. 26
  • The amounts which appear under the heading "Administrative concessions"mostly result from the transition to the application of IFRIC 12 with effectfrom 1 January 2009, which are the result of their reclassification from theheading of "property, plant and equipment" and for the same carryingamount which appear on said date, in line with the provisions in paragraph30 of the transition of IFRIC 12.The administrative concessions have a finite useful life and their cost ifrecorded as an intangible asset, is expensed, through their amortisation, overthe term of the concession on a straight-line basis.In the case of administrative concessions acquired through businesscombinations after 1 January 2004 (IFRS transition date), these, as per IFRS-3, are stated at fair value (on the basis of valuations based on discountedcash flow analyses at their current value at the acquisition date) andamortised on a straight-line basis over the concession period.iv) GoodwillGoodwill generated in different business combinations, represents the surplusof the acquisition cost over the fair or market value of the identifiable netassets of all the company acquired at acquisition date.The possible impairment of goodwills recognised separately (those ofsubsidiary and jointly-controlled companies) is tested annually forimpairment to determine whether its value has declined to a level below thecarrying value at the aforementioned transition date, and, as the case maybe, the necessary charge is made against the consolidated income statementfor the year (see Notes 3.c and 6). The losses for impairment of goodwill arenot subsequently reversed.The impairment of the goodwills included in the carrying value of the equityinvestment in associates is not tested separately. However, under IAS 36,the total carrying value of the investment is tested for impairment bycomparing the recoverable amount (the greater of value in use and fairvalue, minus cost of sale) to carrying value, provided that there areindications that the value of the investment may have been impaired.The loss or gain obtained from the sale of an entity includes the carryingvalue of the goodwill of the entity sold. 27
  • In view of the fact that the goodwill is considered an asset of the acquiredcompany (except the goodwills generated prior to 1 January 2004, whichunder IFRS-1 were considered assets of the acquiring company), a subsidiaryusing a functional currency other than the Euro valuated in the functionalcurrency of the subsidiary, and the translation into Euros, is made at theexchange rate on the balance sheet date, as indicated in Note 2.b.vi.v) Other intangible assetsPrimarily includes licences for the management of airport infrastructures,which are carried as assets in the consolidated balance sheet at fair value atacquisition moment, obtained on the basis of valuations based on theanalysis of discounted cash flows at their current value at the acquisition dateas per IFRS-3. These are expensed using the straight line amortisationmethod.c) Impairment losses on non-financial assetsThe Group evaluates, at each balance sheet date, whether there is anyindication of impairment in the value of any asset. Should such an indicationexist, or when an annual impairment test is required (in the case ofgoodwill), the Group estimates the recoverable value of the assets, which isthe greater of the fair value of an asset minus cost of sale and its value inuse. In order to determine the value in use of an asset, the future cashinflow that the asset is expected to generate is discounted from its netpresent value using an interest rate that reflects, amongst other, thecurrent value of money at long-term rates and the specific risks of theassets (risk premium). See Note 6.In the event that the asset analysed does not generate cash flowindependently of other assets (as is the case for goodwill), the fair value orvalue in use of the cash generating unit that includes the asset (smallestidentifiable group of assets separated from other assets or groups of assets)is estimated. If there are impairment losses in a cash generating unit, thebook value of the goodwill assigned, if any, will be reduced, followed by aproportional reduction of the book value of the other assets in relation tothe unit. 28
  • Losses for impairment (surplus of the asset’s book value over therecoverable value) are recognised in the consolidated income statement forthe year.With the exception of goodwill, where impairment losses are irreversible, ifthe Group has recognised losses for impairment of assets at the end of eachfinancial year, an evaluation will be made to determine whether theindications of impairment have disappeared or lessened, and therecoverable value of the impaired asset, if applicable, will be estimated.A loss due to impairment recognised in prior years will only be reversed ifthere is a change in the estimates used to determine the recoverable valueof the asset as from the time the last loss due to impairment wasrecognised. If this is the case, the book value of the asset would increase toits recoverable value, which cannot exceed the book value that would havebeen recorded, net of amortisation, had the impairment loss on the asset inprior years not been recorded. This reversal would be recorded in theconsolidated income statement for the year.d) Investments and other financial assets (excluding derivative financial instruments)The Group determines the classification of its financial assets when they areinitially recognised. At the close of 31 December 2011 the financial assetshave been classified under the following categories:i) Available-for-sale financial assetsThis entry in the consolidated balance sheet includes those investments inwhich the Group does not exert any significant influence or control (seeNote 9). These are classified as non current assets unless there is anintention to dispose of the investment in the twelve months as from theconsolidated balance sheet date, in which case they are classified as currentassets.These investments are stated at fair value, and gains or losses arising fromchanges in value are part of the other comprehensive result until theinvestment is sold or suffers losses due to impairment.The Group evaluates, at each balance sheet date, whether there is anyeffective indication of impairment, among others, taking into accountwhether there has been a significant or prolonged decrease in the fair valueof the securities below cost price. If there are any indications of this type,the accumulated loss previously recorded in net equity under “Reserves – 29
  • investments available-for-sale” would be transferred to profit and loss asgains or losses on the respective financial assets.For the purposes of identifying indications of impairment, the Group firstuses Spanish accounting standards (Spanish General Chart of Accounts)which indicate that an available-for-sale financial asset will be assumed tohave suffered impairment after a fall of one and a half years and fortypercent of its price without their being a recovery in its value. At any event,and where necessary, a specific analysis is conducted on those figures ofthe instrument which are deemed essential for confirming or rejecting theneed, or not, to record deterioration of the capital instrument.The fair value of the investments that are actively traded on official stockexchanges is taken as the trading price at the close of the market at thebalance sheet date. In the case of investments where there is not an activemarket, the fair value is determined using valuation methods, such asprojections of discounted cash flows. If their market value cannot bedetermined in a reliable manner, they will be valued at cost or at a loweramount if there is evidence of impairment.Dividend income arising from available-for-sale financial assets are recordedunder “Financial income” (see Note 20.d) in the consolidated incomestatement when the right of the Group to receive them is established.ii) Trade and other receivablesThis entry corresponds primarily to: Loans granted to associates or related entities which are valued at amortised cost using the effective interest method. This value is decreased, as the case may be, by the respective provision for impairment of the asset. Deposits and guarantee deposits recorded at their nominal value. Trade accounts receivable, which are stated at their nominal value, which is similar to initial fair value. Said value is reduced, if necessary, by the corresponding provision for bad debts (loss for impairment of asset) whenever there is objective evidence that the amount owed will not be partially or fully collected, charged against the consolidated income statement for the year. 30
  • Accounts receivable resulting from the application of the financial model in recording certain concession arrangements subject to IFRIC 12 (see section b.iii of this Note). This right is stated initially at fair value and subsequently at amortised cost, and at the balance sheet date financial income is booked that has been calculated using an effective interest rate, during the term of the concession arrangement.e) Derivative financial instrumentsThe Group uses derivative financial instruments to manage its financial riskarising principally from fluctuations in interest rates and exchange rates(see Note 4). These derivative financial instruments, whether or not theyhave been classified as hedges, have been recorded at fair value, which isthe year end market value of listed instruments, or valuations based on theanalysis of discounted cash flows using assumptions that are mainly basedon the market conditions at the balance sheet date for unlisted derivativeinstruments.At the beginning of the transaction the Group documents the relationshipbetween the hedging instruments and the assets they cover, as well as therisk management objectives and the strategy for its hedging transactions.The Group also documents their evaluation, both at the beginning andcontinuously, as to whether the derivatives that are used in the hedgingtransactions are highly effective for offsetting the changes in fair value orcash flows of the items hedged.The fair value of derivative financial instruments used for hedging purposesis set out in Note 10, and the variation in the hedging reserve recordedunder consolidated net equity is set out in Note 13.Classification on the balance sheet as current or non-current will depend onwhether the maturity of the hedge at the year end is less or more than oneyear. Non-hedge derivatives will be classified in any case as current. 31
  • The criteria used to account for these instruments are as follows:i) Fair value hedgesThe changes in the fair value of the designated derivatives that meet theconditions to be classified as hedging operations of the fair value of assetsor liabilities are recorded in the income statement for the year under“Variation in valuation of hedging instruments”, together with any change inthe fair value of the asset or liability covered by the hedge attributable tothe risk hedged. This corresponds mainly to those derivative financialinstruments contracted by the Group companies to convert fixed interestdebt into floating rate debt.ii) Cash flow hedgesThe positive or negative changes in the valuation of the derivativesclassified as cash flow hedges are charged, in the effective portion, net ofany tax impact, to consolidated equity under the entry “Reserves – Hedgereserve”, until the hedged item impacts the result for the year (or when thehedged item matures or is sold or if it is no longer probable that thetransaction will take place), at which point the retained earnings or losses innet equity are transferred to the consolidated income statement for theyear.The positive or negative differences in the valuation of the derivativescorresponding to the ineffective portion, if they exist, are recorded directlyin the consolidated income statement for the year under “Variation invaluation of hedging instruments”.This type of hedge corresponds primarily to those derivatives contracted bythe Group companies that convert floating rate debt to fixed rate debt.iii) Hedging net foreign investment in non-euro currencyIn certain cases abertis finances its activities in the same functionalcurrency in which the foreign investments are held so as to reduce theexchange rate risk. This is done by raising finance in the correspondingcurrency or by contracting cross currency interest rate swaps. 32
  • The hedging of net foreign investments is accounted for in a way that issimilar to the cash flow hedge. The gains or losses on the hedginginstrument for the effective portion are recorded under net equity and thegains or losses related to the ineffective portion are recognised immediatelyin the consolidated income statement for the year.Accumulated gains or losses in net equity are carried in the incomestatement when the foreign transaction is concluded.iv) Derivatives not qualified as accounting hedgesIn case there are derivatives that do not meet the criteria established to bequalified as hedges, the positive or negative variation arising fromrecalculating the fair value of these derivatives is taken directly toconsolidated profit and loss for the year.f) InventoriesInventories consist primarily of spare parts for property, plant and equipmentand are valued at cost, calculated using the weighted average price method,making the necessary valuation adjustments and raising the correspondingimpairment.g) Cash and cash equivalentsCash and cash equivalents include cash on hand, demand deposits in banksand short-term investments in highly liquid instruments maturing in threemonths or less.h) Non current assets held for saleNon current assets are classified as held for sale when their value will berecovered mainly through sale, provided that said sale is highly likely. Theseassets are stated at the lesser of their book value or fair value, less the costsof sale. 33
  • i) Treasury sharesIn the event that any Group entity or the Parent Company acquires shares ofabertis, these are recorded under “Treasury shares” in the consolidatedbalance sheet and consolidated net equity is reduced. The shares are statedat acquisition cost, without recording any provisions.When these shares are sold, any amount received, net of any additionaldirectly attributable transaction costs and the corresponding effect of the taxon the profit generated, and are included in the net equity attributable toequity holders of the parent Company.j) BorrowingsBorrowings are initially recorded at fair value, including the costs incurred inraising the debt. In subsequent periods they are valued at amortised cost andthe difference between the funds obtained (net of the costs involved inraising the funds) and the repayment value, as the case may be, and if it issignificant, is recorded in the income statement over the life of the debt usingthe effective interest method.Borrowings at a fixed interest rate hedged using derivatives that modify thisinterest rate from fixed to floating are stated at fair value for the hedgedcomponent, and these variations are taken to profit and loss, thus offsettingthe impact on results of the variation in the fair value of the derivativeinstrument.k) Income taxThe tax expense (or, where appropriate, income) on profits is the totalamount accrued for this purpose during the year, representing both currentand deferred tax.Both the current tax expense (or, where appropriate, income) and deferredtax expense are recorded in the consolidated income statement for the year.However, the tax effect relating to items recorded directly in othercomprehensive income or net equity is recorded under other comprehensiveincome or net equity. 34
  • The deferred tax is calculated using the liabilities method based on thebalance sheet, on the temporary differences that arise between taxableincome of the assets and liabilities and their accounting amounts in theconsolidated annual accounts, under the regulations and using tax rates inforce, or pending approval, on the balance sheet date and which areexpected to be used when the corresponding deferred tax asset is realised orthe deferred tax liability is settled.Deferred tax liabilities that arise from temporary differences with subsidiary,multi-group companies and/or associates are always recorded, except inthose cases in which the Group can control the date on which the temporarydifferences will reverse and it is probable that they will not reverse in theforeseeable future.The deferred income tax assets are recognised if it is probable that future taxprofit will arise with which to offset the deductible temporary differences orthe losses or unused fiscal credits. In the case of deferred tax assets thatcould arise due to temporary differences with subsidiary and multigroupcompanies and/or associates, these are recognised if additionally it ispossible that they will reverse in the foreseeable future.The recoverability of deferred tax assets is evaluated when they aregenerated, and at each year end, depending on the evolution of resultsexpected from the companies according to their respective business plans.l) Employee benefitsUnder the respective collective bargaining arrangements, various companiesin the Group have the following commitments with their employees:i) Post-employment obligations:  Defined contributions to employee welfare instruments (employee pension plans and collective insurance policies).  Defined benefits, in the form of bonuses or payments for retirement from the company and temporary and /or life-time annuities. 35
  • In defined contribution employee welfare, the Company makes predefinedcontributions to an external entity and does not have a legal or realobligation to make additional contributions in the event that this entity doesnot have sufficient assets to cover the employee payments that related to theservices provided in the current year and previous years. The annual expenserecorded is the corresponding contribution made in the year.In the defined benefit commitments, where the Company assumes certainactuarial and investment risks, the liability recorded on the balance sheet isthe present value of the obligations at the balance sheet date less the fairvalue of the possible assets for this commitment on said date, plus or minusany unrealised actuarial gain or loss, less any amount arising from the cost ofpast services not yet recognised.The actuarial valuation of the defined benefit commitments is made annuallyby independent actuaries using the projected credit unit method to determineboth the current value of the obligations and the cost of the services providedin the current and previous years. The actuarial gains and losses arising fromchanges in the actuarial assumptions are recognised in the year in which theyoccur. They are not included in the consolidated income statement, butpresented in the statement of comprehensive income.Costs for past services are recognised as an expense, and are allocated on astraight-line basis over the average period remaining until the right to receivethe benefits has finally vested. Nevertheless, when the benefits areimmediately irrevocable after the introduction of a defined benefits plan, orfollowing any change in the plan, the costs for past services are recognisedimmediately.The hedging of commitments by making contributions to an insurance policy,where the legal or implied obligation to meet the agreed benefits remains, isalways treated as a defined benefit.ii) Other long-term benefits, related to the length-of-service of the employee in the company.In respect of long-term commitments for the length of service of employeesin the company, the liability recognised on the balance sheet coincides withthe current value of the obligations at the balance sheet date, if there are noother assets related to them. 36
  • The projected credit unit method is used to determine both the current valueof the obligations at the balance sheet date and the cost of the servicesrendered during the current year and previous years. The actuarial gains andlosses that arise from changes in the actuarial assumptions are recognized,unlike the post-employment obligations, in the year in which they aregenerated, in the consolidated income statement for the year.iii) Share-based payments.As indicated in Note 28, the group has a Management compensation planconsisting in the distribution of options in abertis stock that can only besettled in shares.This plan is valuated at its fair value, at the date it is initially distributed,using a generally accepted financial calculation method, which, amongstothers, takes into account the option exercise price, volatility, exercise term,expected dividends and the risk-free interest rate.The cost of the plan is charged to the consolidated income statement as apersonnel expense as it accrues during the period of time required for theemployee to remain in the company in order to exercise the option, while acounter-entry is made in consolidated net equity, without a re-estimate of itsinitial valuation, as per IFRS-2. However, at the year end the Group reviewsits original estimates of the number of options expected to be exercisable(affected, inter alia, by the impact of any bonus share issue) and recognizes,as the case may be, the impact of its review on the income statements bymaking the respective adjustment to consolidated net equity as it accruesduring the period of time remaining until the end of the period of timerequired for the employee to remain in the company in order to exercise theoption.m) Transactions in foreign currenciesTransactions in foreign currencies are translated into the presentationcurrency of the Group (Euro) using the exchange rates in force on thetransaction date. The gains and losses on foreign currencies that arise fromthe settlement of these transactions and from the translation of monetaryassets and liabilities held in foreign currency at the year end exchange ratesare recorded in the consolidated income statement, unless they are 37
  • deferred in net equity as in the case of cash flow hedges and hedges on netinvestments, as noted in section e) of this Note.n) ProvisionsProvisions are recorded when the Group has a present legal or impliedobligation, as the result of past events where it is probable that adisbursement must be made to settle the obligation and when the amountcan be reliably estimated.In cases in which the effect of the time value of money is significant, theamount of the provision is calculated as the present value of the future cashflows that are estimated to be required to settle the existing obligation.For infrastructure concessions that are subject to compliance by the Operatorwith the contractual obligations such as maintenance of a certain level ofoperations of the infrastructure or the restoration under certain conditions ofthe infrastructure when returned to the Grantor at the end of the servicearrangement, provisions are posted, as per IAS 37, using the best estimatefor the outflow of funds to cancel the present obligation on the balance sheetdate.o) Revenue recognitionIncome for the rendering of services is recognised when it is probable thatthe benefits from the transaction will be received by the Group and can bereliably quantified (time of use of the infrastructure by the users).Most income of the Group is generated by the motorway segment and relatesmainly to toll income, which is recorded when the service is provided.Income from the telecommunications segment is also recorded when theservice is rendered and relates mainly to the provision of audio-visualservices, radio communications for closed groups of users, television andradio broadcasting, infrastructure rental, satellite capacity, transport of datato operators and other non-recurrent income.Income from the airports segment, mainly from the ACDL Group, relatesbasically to the provision for movements of aircraft and people, tradingrevenues and others, which are also recorded when the service is rendered.Interest income is recognised using the effective interest method whiledividend income is recognised when the right to receive payment isestablished. 38
  • Finally, it is important to point out that, the abertis group does notgenerally carry out the construction activities of concession assets as itincorporates the infrastructures which it operates by means ofadministrative concession through their acquisition from third-partycompanies which perform the construction on the account of abertis. Inaccordance with paragraph 14 of IFRIC 12, the headings "Income fromupgrades of infrastructures" and "Expenses from upgrades ofinfrastructures" of the consolidated income statement for the year includesthe income and expenses corresponding to the construction activities orupgrades of infrastructures carried out over the year, with no marginrecorded for said activity as the Group does not carry out any constructionand acquires the infrastructure at its fair value.p) EnvironmentCosts arising from legal environment requirements are recorded annuallyeither as an expense or are capitalised, depending on their nature. Theamounts capitalised are depreciated over their useful life.No allowance has been made to the provision for liabilities and charges inrelation to the environment, given that there are no contingencies related tothis matter.q) New IAS/IFRS standards and IFRIC interpretationsAs indicated below, in 2011 new accounting standards (IAS/IFRS) andinterpretations (IFRIC) have come into force or those which came into forcein 2010 but for years beginning after 1 January 2010 (applied for abertispurposes as from 1 January 2011) have been applied. Furthermore, at thedate of formulation of these consolidated annual accounts, new internationalaccounting standards (IAS/IFRS) and interpretations (IFRIC) have beenenacted that are to enter into force for the accounting years commencing 1January 2012 or subsequent to this date.i) Standards, modifications and interpretations coming into effect on 1 January 2011, or which abertis has applied on that date, having come into force in 2010 but only for the years beginning after 1 January 2010. IAS 24 (revised in November 2009) – “Related party disclosures” (in force for years beginning 1 January 2011). IAS 32 (modification October 2009) – “Financial Instruments: 39
  • presentation of emissions rights” (in force for the years beginning 1 February 2010). IFRS 1 (modified January 2010) – “First-time Adoption of IFRS, limited exemption from comparative IFRS 7 disclosures for first- time adopters” (in force for years beginning 1 July 2010). IFRIC 14 (modified July 2010) – “Prepayments of a minimum funding requirement” (in force for financial years beginning 1 January 2011). IFRIC 19 - “Extinguishing financial liabilities with equity instruments” (in force for years beginning 1 July 2010). In addition, as part of the IASB’s annual improvements project of May 2010, a series of minor changes in certain standards and interpretations have been adopted, which entered into force on 1 January 2011.All those standards, amendments and interpretations applicable to theGroups annual accounts have been taken into account with effect from 1January 2011, without significant impact on these consolidated annualaccounts.ii) Standards, modifications and interpretations issued by the IASB and adopted by the European Union, coming into force in 2011 but for years beginning after 1 January 2011, for which the Group has not contemplated early adoption (applicable for abertis purposes as from 1 January 2012). IFRS 7 (modification in October 2010) – “Financial instruments: disclosures – transfers of financial assets” (in force for the years beginning 1 January 2011).It is not expected that the application of these standards, modifications andinterpretations will have a significant impact on the consolidated annualaccounts of abertis. 40
  • iii) Standards, modifications and interpretations issued by the IASB pending adoption by the European Union, generally coming into force after 1 January 2012, for which the Group has not contemplated their early adoption. IAS 1 (amendment of June 2011) – “Presentation of financial statements" (in force for years beginning 1 July 2012, and so for abertis purposes it will be applied as from 1 January 2013). Amends the presentation of Other Comprehensive Income, grouping it into two categories, based on whether the headings included therein will be reclassified to the income statement or not. IAS 12 (modification December 2010) – “Income Taxes – deferred tax: recovery of underlying assets” (in force for years beginning 1 January 2012). IAS 19 (amendment of June 2011) – “Employee Benefits” (in force for years beginning 1 January 2013). It amends, inter alia, the recognition and measurement of defined benefit pension costs and termination benefits, as well as the breakdowns of all employee benefits. IAS 27 (amendment of May 2011 as a consequence of the new IFRS 10) - "Separate financial statements" (in force for years beginning 1 January 2013). IAS 28 (amendment of May 2011 as a consequence of the new IFRS 11) - "Investments in associates and joint ventures" (in force for years beginning 1 January 2013). IAS 32 (modification of December 2011) – “Financial Instruments: offsetting financial assets and financial liabilities" (in force for years beginning 1 February 2014). IFRS 1 (modified December 2010) – “First-time Adoption of IFRS, severe hyperinflation and removal of fixed dates for first-time adopters” (in force for the years beginning 1 July 2011). IAS 7 (modification of December 2011) – “Financial Instruments: offsetting financial assets and financial liabilities" (in force for years beginning 1 January 2013). IFRS 9 – “Financial instruments” replacing IAS 39 (in force for years beginning 1 January 2015 in accordance with the amendment published in July 2011). 41
  • IFRS 10 – “Consolidated financial statements”. The new standard introduces changes in the concept of control and replaces the consolidation and control guidelines included in IAS 27 - "Consolidated and separate financial statements" (consequently amended) and eliminates SIC 12 - "Consolidation -special purpose entities" (in force for years beginning 1 January 2013). IFRS 11 – “Joint arrangements”. The new standard provides an accounting treatment for joint agreements based on the rights and obligations arising from the agreement and not on its legal form, differentiating between joint operations and joint ventures. It establishes that the investment in joint ventures may only be recorded using the equity method, removing the option of using the proportional consolidation method (in force for years beginning 1 January 2013). abertis applies the option of recording the investments in joint ventures using the proportional consolidation method. The change in method (which is neutral in terms of the net income attributable to the equity holders and the net assets contributed to the consolidated accounts) is not considered to have a material impact on the figures of the balance sheet and income statement. IFRS 12 – “Disclosure of interests in other entities”. The new standard contains the disclosure requirements for entities which report under the new IFRS 10 and IFRS 11, and in addition substitutes the disclosure requirements included in the former IAS 28 - "Investments in associates" and IAS 31 "Interests in joint ventures" (in force for years beginning 1 January 2013). IFRS 13 - "Fair value measurement”. The result of the joint project of the IASB and the FASB, it explains how to measure items at fair value and improves and extends disclosure requirements. It will be performed prospectively from the year in which it is applied for the first time (in force for years beginning 1 January 2013). IFRIC 20 – “Stripping costs in the production phase of a surface mine." (in force for years beginning 1 January 2013).As indicated above, the Group has not contemplated the early application ofthe Standards and interpretations mentioned above and in any case theirapplication would be taking into account by the Group after their adoption, asthe case may be, by the European Union. 42
  • 4. MANAGEMENT OF FINANCIAL RISK AND CAPITALa) Factors of financial riskThe activities of the Group are exposed to various financial risks: exchangerate risk, credit risk, liquidity risk and interest rate risk on cash flow. TheGroup uses derivatives to hedge certain risks.The management of financial risk is controlled by the Corporate FinancialManagement under authorisation of the most senior executive officer ofabertis, as part of the respective policies adopted by the Board ofDirectors.i) Exchange rate riskThe Group also operates outside the euro area and holds assets basically inthe United Kingdom, United States and South America, exposing it,therefore, to exchange rate risks on currency operations, particularly inPound sterling, the US dollar and the Argentine, Mexican and Chilean Peso.Exchange rate risk arises from future commercial transactions, recognisedassets and liabilities, and net investments in foreign operations.The exchange rate risk on net assets of Group operations in non-Eurocurrencies are managed, mainly, by raising debt in the correspondingcurrencies and through the use of currency swaps.In relation to exchange rate risk, we should point out that at 31 December2011, the abertis Group companies operating in a functional currency otherthan the Euro contribute 8.5% of the gross operating earnings and 10.5%of consolidated earnings (8.9% and 8.9%, respectively, in 2010).As in previous years, the most significant contribution is that made by theACDL Group (whose functional currency is the Pound Sterling), whichcontributes at the 2011 year end 2.6% of gross operating earnings and3.5% of consolidated earnings (2.4% and 2.3%, respectively in 2010); andthat made by the Chilean toll motorways (abertis Chile Group and InvinGroup, whose functional currency is the Chilean Peso), which contribute atthe 2011 year end 4.8% of gross operating earnings and 0.8% ofconsolidated earnings (4.9% and 0.8%, respectively, in 2010). 43
  • In this regard, a 10% change in the Euro/Pound exchange rate with regardto that considered at the 31 December 2011 year end would have a positiveimpact on earnings of Euros 2.5 million (Euros 1.5 million in 2010) and aneffect on equity for translation differences arising from consolidation of 61.3million Euros (Euros 59.3 million in 2010). With regards to the €/ChileanPeso exchange rate, a variation of 10% at 31 December 2011 wouldrepresent a slightly positive impact of Euros 0.5 million on earnings (Euros -0.5 million in 2010) and an impact on equity of Euros 148.2 million fortranslation differences arising from the consolidation process (Euros 158.2million in 2010).In addition, the impacts on net equity of the Group would be offset by theimpact on equity of the net investment hedges made, which were taken outat the amount of the initial investment.ii) Interest rate riskThe Group’s exposure to interest rates arises from its non-currentborrowings.The borrowings issues at floating rates expose the Group to interest raterisk on cash flows, while the borrowings at a fixed rate expose the Group tointerest rate risk on fair value.The purpose of managing interest rate risk is to reach a balance in the debtstructure that enables the volatility to be minimised in the incomestatement over several years, and, accordingly, the Group’s policy is tomaintain approximately 75%-85% of its borrowings at a fixed interest rateor at a rate fixed through hedges (at 31 December 2011 this is set at 84% -as in 2010 - and the estimated net impact after tax on earnings of avariation of 50bp in the interest rate of floating debt would be Euros 8.0million, against Euros 8.6 million in 2010. See Note 14.To accomplish this, and based on the different estimates and objectivesrelated to the structure of the debt, in order to manage interest rate risk onthe cash flows, hedging operations are made by contracting derivativefinancial instruments consisting of interest rate swaps from floating to fixed.These swaps have the economic effect of converting borrowings at floatingrates into fixed rates, and, accordingly, the Group makes commitments withother parties to exchange, on a regular basis, the difference between thefixed and floating interest rates calculated on the basis of the main notionalprincipals contracted. 44
  • In this respect, to comply with the Group policy mentioned above, theGroup carries out interest rate swaps from fixed to floating to hedge its fairvalue interest rate exposure.iii) Credit riskGiven the nature of the Groups businesses, there are no significantconcentrations of credit risk as there are no significant trade receivablesexcept for receivables from the Public Administration and balances withfinancial institutions (mainly derivative instruments and cash and cashequivalents). The derivative operations and the spot operations are onlymade with financial institutions with strong credit ratings, accepting onlyentities that have been qualified independently with a minimum “A-“ rating.This credit worthiness is reviewed periodically in order to ensure activemanagement of counter-party risk.During the years for which information is reported no credit limits havebeen exceeded and Management does not expect there to be losses due tothe infringement of any of the counterparties indicated above.iv) Liquidity riskThe Group carries out prudent management of the liquidity risk, whichinvolves maintaining cash and having access to a sufficient amount offinance through established credit facilities as well as the capacity toliquidate market positions. Given the dynamic character of the Group’sbusinesses, the objective of General Financial Management is to remainflexible in financing through the availability of established credit facilities.Treasury outflows expected in relation to borrowings with the Group arebroken down in Note 14.b) Fair value estimateThe valuation of the assets and liabilities measured at their fair value mustbe disclosed by level using the follow IFRS 7 hierarchy: Level 1. Quotation prices (unadjusted) in official stock markets and identical liabilities. 45
  • Level 2. Information other than quotation prices included in Level 1 that can be observed for assets and liabilities both directly (i.e., prices), and indirectly (i.e., price derivatives). Level 3. Information for assets and liabilities that are not based on observable market information.The breakdown at 31 December of the Group assets and liabilities measuredat fair value by Level is as follows: Level 1 Level 2 Level 3 2011Assets (*)Available-for-sale financial assets - 10,549 3,028 13,577Derivative financial instruments: Cash flow hedge - 760 - 760 Fair value hedge - 83,564 - 83,564 Hedge of net foreign investment in non-Euro currency - 150,889 - 150,889 Not qualifying for hedge accounting - 485 - 485Total derivative financial instruments - 235,698 - 235,698Total assets - 246,247 3,028 249,275LiabilitiesDerivative financial instruments: Cash flow hedge - 114,646 - 114,646 Fair value hedge - - - - Hedge of net foreign investment in non-Euro currency - 167,686 - 167,686 Not qualifying for hedge accounting - 2,250 - 2,250Total derivative financial instruments - 284,582 - 284,582Financial payables hedged at fair value - 817,116 - 817,116Total liabilities - 1,101,698 - 1,101,698 (*) Relates to net equity securities 46

The market quotation price used for financial assets is thecurrent buyer price.The fair value of the financial instruments that are not traded on activemarkets is determined using valuation techniques. The Group uses a varietyof methods and makes assumptions based on the existing marketconditions at each balance sheet date.Listed market prices are used for long-term debt. The fair value of interestrate swaps is calculated as the current value of the estimated future cashflows and the fair value of forward exchange rate contracts is determinedusing the forward exchange rates in the market at the year end. 47
  • c) Capital managementThe objective of the Group in terms of capital management is to safeguardits capacity to continue as a going concern in order to ensure value for itsshareholders and profit for other holders of its net equity instruments andto maintain an optimum capital structure and reduce its cost.The Group monitors its capital in line with the leverage index and industrypractices. This index is calculated as net debt divided by total capital. Netdebt is calculated as total borrowings (including current and non-currentborrowings, as stated in the consolidated balance sheet) minus cash andcash equivalents. Total capital is calculated as net equity, as stated in theconsolidated accounts, plus net debt.During the year, the Groups strategy in this regard has not changedsignificantly, with the leverage index rising slightly compared with 2010.This was essentially the result of the payment of an extraordinary interimdividend for the 2011 earnings of Euros 0.67 per share (Euros 495,155thousand, see Note 13.c) and an extraordinary dividend charged against theShare Premium Reserve of Euros 0.40 per share as a return of contributionsto equity holders (Euros 295,615 thousand, see Note 13.a).The leverage indices at 31 December were as follows: 31 December 31 December 2011 2010 Borrowings (Note 14) 14,545,669 15,375,954 Cash and cash equivalents (Note 12) (391,010) (482,328) (*) Net debt 14,154,659 14,893,626 Net equity (Note 13) 4,415,713 5,453,482 Total capital 18,570,372 20,347,108 Leverage index 76% 73% (*) Includes the payables with associates (recorded using equity accounting) and the interest on loans and bonds. 48

  • At 31 December 2011 capital grants total Euros 123,904 thousand (Euros152,691 thousand in 2010), after subtracting intangible assets (mainly under“Administrative concessions”). They are released on a straight-line basis toprofit and loss on the basis of the useful life of the asset financed and totalEuros 7,361 thousand (Euros 6,474 thousand in 2010 considering the impactof the classification of the car parks and logistics parks operating segmentsas discontinued operations in application of IFRS 5), reducing thedepreciation charge for the year. These capital grants basically relate to theSanef Group (Euros 117,250 thousand in 2011 and Euros 118,075 thousandin 2010), which were granted by the French Government.The exchange differences generated during the year mainly relate tointangible assets in the UK (Pounds Sterling 508,869 thousand in 2011 andPounds Sterling 521,272 in 2010) and to intangible assets in Chile (ChileanPesos 1,044,047,043 thousand in 2011 and Chilean Pesos 1,121,572,727thousand in 2010), as a result of the revaluation of the pound sterling atthe year end and the depreciation of the Chilean peso at the year end (in2010 as a result of the revaluation of the pound sterling and Chilean peso atyear end). 55
  • The breakdown of goodwill in subsidiary and multi-group companiesassigned to each of the different cash generating units defined by GroupManagement, in accordance with their respective business segment and theconcession that gave rise to the goodwill, is as follows: 2011 2010 Motorways HIT/Sanef Group 2,824,092 2,824,092 Iberpistas 308,224 308,224 Avasa 245,650 245,650 Aucat 178,447 178,447 Autopista Central 142,014 152,511 Trados45 29,872 29,872 Rutas del Pacífico 28,925 31,063 Aulesa 9,985 9,985 Others 3,277 3,441 3,770,486 3,783,285 Telecommunications Hispasat 144,279 144,279 Tradia 42,014 42,014 Overon 15,964 15,964 202,257 202,257 Airports ACDL/TBI 253,356 245,850 DCA/MBJ 28,392 27,658 Others 8,632 8,540 290,380 282,048 Car parks Saba (group) - 114,757 Logistics parks Abertis Portugal Logística - 4,774 Cilsa - 10,603 - 15,377 Goodwill 4,263,123 4,397,724As indicated in Note 3.b), at the year end an evaluation is made todetermine if any of the goodwill recorded has been impaired based on thecalculation of value in use of its corresponding cash generating unit, or themarket value (price of similar recent transactions in the market) if higher. 56
  • To determine this current value of the future cash flows from theinvestment, the following has been carried out: Determining the time in which it is estimated that the respective investment will generate cash flows (concession term for operator companies, most of which expire between 8 and 28 years). The respective projections have been made of revenues and expenses, using the following general criteria: o For revenues, in order to estimate the evolution of prices, the group has taken into consideration the official evolution of the consumer price index (CPI) of each country in which investments are made (taking into account for operator companies the respective price revision formulas set in the concession contracts based on the evolution of the local CPI and/or specific adjustments to it). As for activity (essentially ADI, Average Daily Intensity of vehicles in the case of motorways), the group uses as its reference for estimating the growth of gross domestic product (GDP) forecast by the respective official bodies of each country (as revised in each case), also taking into account historical experience of the evolution of the activity in each investment against GDP, the degree of maturity of each infrastructure and other specific aspects that could affect future activity. o As for expenses, their evolution has been based on the foreseeable evolution of the respective CPIs, and the evolution of the business. o Similarly, the works to be performed for maintaining and upgrading infrastructures have been considered. The Group has used the best estimates available based on the company’s experience and taking into account the forecast evolution of the activity. The cash forecasts obtained from the forecast for revenue and expenses carried out in accordance with the aforementioned criteria have been updated at the discount rate resulting from adding to the long-term cost of money, the risk premium assigned by the market to the country where the companys activity takes place, the risk premium assigned by the market to each business (both considered on a long-term basis), as well as the financial structure of the company or corresponding cash generating unit. In general the discount rates used are within the range of 6.5%-10%. 57
  • The summary of all these aspects for the most significant goodwills is asfollows: 2011 Accumulated annual growth (2011 – End of concession) Last year of forecast (concession Discount Cash generating unit period) CPI Activity(*) Expenses rate HIT/ Sanef Group 2029 1.8% 2.0% 2.3% 6.89% Iberpistas/ castellana 2031 2.5% 2.3% 1.3% 6.67% Avasa 2026 2.5% 3.4% 1.1% 6.67% ACDL/ TBI Group 2028 2.7% 3.4% 3.5% 7.60% Aucat 2038 2.5% 2.2% 2.1% 6.67% Autopista Central 2031 3.0% 5.9% 4.0% 9.52% Hispasat 2021 2.5% 5.8% 5.2% 8.70%(*) ADI in the case of motorways, number of passengers in the case of airports and revenue for Hispasat. 2010 Accumulated annual growth (2010 – End of concession) Last year of forecast (concession Discount Cash generating unit period) CPI Activity(*) Expenses rate HIT/ Sanef Group 2029 1.3% 2.1% 2.4% 6.34% Iberpistas/ castellana 2031 2.5% 2.4% 3.3% 6.15% Avasa 2026 2.5% 3.6% 3.7% 6.15% ACDL/ TBI Group 2028 2.5% 3.7% 2.3% 7.25% Aucat 2038 2.5% 2.5% 3.3% 6.15% Autopista Central 2031 3.0% 4.3% 3.6% 9.91% Hispasat 2026 2.5% 8.4% 2.8% 8.50%(*) ADI in the case of motorways, number of passengers in the case of airports and revenue for Hispasat.For the first five years the projections are generally based on the budgetand in the last medium-term projection approved by the Management.Time periods greater than 5 years are considered as these concessionassets have a finite life, and therefore the projected cash flow period isclearly delimited and defined (as indicated above, based on the remainingconcession period). 58
  • As a result of the impairment test made, the different cash generating unitsto which the various goodwills are assigned are deemed capable ofrecovering the net value of each goodwill recorded at 31 December 2011.Consequently, there is no need to record any provisions for impairment.Thus, we should point out that: In respect of the impairment tests of the goodwills of Spanish motorways, in the case of the iberpistas and aucat, the recoverable value (determined on the basis of the value in use, as mentioned above) that is obtained from the same exceeds the carrying value of the respective goodwills in such a way that if significant changes were made to the assumptions used in these calculations, no significant impairment risk would arise (the sensitivity analysis tests performed on these projections demonstrate that they could undergo reductions greater than 15% in their measurement). In the case of avasa, we should point out that with effect as from 30 June 2009, abertis acquired an additional 50%, leading to it having an indirect shareholding through iberpistas of 100%. This amounted to an "acquisition in stages" of this company (abertis already held the remaining 50%), in such as way that, in application of IFRS 3, the assets and liabilities already held abertis were recorded at their fair value at 30 June 2009. Therefore, given that at the time of its acquisition (more recent in time), its assets and liabilities were already recorded at their fair value, although the results of the impairment tests make it possible to recover the value of the assigned goodwill and remeasured assets, the latter show lower tolerance to variations in the key assumptions analysed (slightly above 5%). As for the goodwill of hit/sanef (arising from its acquisition in 2006), it should be noted that the revenues recorded in 2011 (as in 2010 and previous years) continue to be higher than those taken into account in the model used to determine the fair value of the intangibles and goodwill at the acquisition date, and, accordingly, the value in use obtained sufficiently exceeds the carrying value of the goodwill that was recorded, and no significant risk of impairment arising from changes in the assumptions used would arise (the sensitivity analysis tests performed on the analysed projections demonstrate that they could undergo reductions greater than 15% in their measurement). 59
  • With regard to the goodwill and remeasured assets assigned toautopista central, of which abertis acquired the control of 50% witheffect as from 31 December 2008 through the company Inversora deInfraestructuras, S.L. (invin), although the results of the impairmenttest reflects a recovery in the goodwill and remeasured assets, theyshow lower tolerance to variations in the key assumptions analysed(slightly above 5%). At any event, the projections considered are inline with those considered the time of the acquisition.In relation to the impairment tests of the total goodwill of the acdl/tbiGroup, which corresponds mainly to the Luton airport concession(which represents 74% of the total) and the airports owned in Belfastand Cardiff, the recoverable value based on the value in use which isobtained from the aforementioned tests sufficiently exceeds thecarrying value in such a way that if significant changes wereconsidered to the assumptions used, no significant impairment riskswould arise (the sensitivity analysis tests performed on the projectionsconsidered demonstrate that they could undergo reductions greaterthan 10% in their measurement). 60

  • 8. INVESTMENTS IN ASSOCIATESThe movement recorded in this entry of the consolidated balance sheet is asfollows: 2011 2010 At 1 January 1,461,077 1,373,983 Additions and business combinations 152,106 24,851 Disposals (26,020) - Variation in scope 262,931 (27,503) Share in (loss)/profit (1) (See Note 13.c.iii) 124,186 116,971 Cumulative translation adjustment (8,637) 26,224 Dividends accrued (See Note 27.c) (84,156) (76,021) Cash flow hedges (see Note 13) (20,618) 26,240 Others 40,254 (3,668) Transfer to disposable group assets held for sale (2,064) - At 31 December 1,899,059 1,461,077 (1) The share in (loss)/profit is stated after tax and non-controlling interests.The increases and business combinations for the year mainly correspond tothe incorporation of the company Autopistas Metropolitanas de Puerto Rico,LLC (metropistas) for an amount of Euros 143,713 thousand euros and, asin 2010, capital increases carried out by the investee company A’Lienor(Euros 8,393 thousand in 2011).The reductions in 2011 mainly correspond to the value at year end of the37.21% shareholding which abertis held up to that date in the companyTúnel del Cadí, S.A.C, sold on 30 December 2011 for Euros 45,500thousand.The additions in 2011 as a result of changes in the consolidation scope arerelated to the changing of the classification, with effect as from 31December 2011, of the 14.61% stake in the capital of Brisa. As a result ofthe taking on of significant influence, this is now classified as a shareholdingin an associate and recorded using the equity method as from that date(see Note 2.b.vii). 62
  • With regard to the shareholding in Brisa, the Groups opinion up to the 2011year end was to consider that, despite having representation on its board ofdirectors, the Group alone did not have sufficient participation so as toconclude about significant influence supposition as established in IAS 28.61,and therefore it was recorded as an investment in equity instrumentsclassified as an available-for-sale financial asset.However, at the balance sheet date of 31 December 2011, a series ofcircumstances have ended in the objective consideration that there are nownew elements which make it possible to conclude that abertis hassignificant influence despite holding less than 20% of the voting power inthe investee company. Therefore, on the aforementioned balance sheetdate, it is considered that the Group exercises significant influence over theinvestment in Brisa. This decision is based on: Appointment, in April 2011, of the Chief Financial Officer of the abertis Group as a board member of Brisa, assuming a great executive role than the institutional representation carried out by the former abertis representative. This ratifies the Group’s strategy of active and influential management in Brisa. Greater participation in Brisa’s Corporate Governance with the commitment in 2011 by Chairman of Brisa’s Board of Directors of the appointment of the Chief Financial Officer of abertis and member of Brisa’s Board of Directors as a member of Brisa’s "Corporate Governance & Sustainability Monitoring Committee". This appointment was approved by the Board of Directors on 25 January 2012. Clear intention by the Group, established through a resolution of the Executive Committee of abertis, to strengthen abertis’ participation in Brisa. This last aspect has been materialised in the acquisition on 30 December 2011 of a purchase option on 2,500,000 Brisa shares at a price in line with their market price, which may be executed at any time up to 16 March 2012, in which case the shareholding of abertis in Brisa would increase from 14.61% to 15.02% (corresponding to 16.31% of the voting rights, bearing in mind the effect of Brisa’s treasury shares).1 “It is assumed that the investor exerts significant influence if it holds, directly or indirectly (e.g. throughsubsidiaries), 20 percent or more of the voting power at stake; unless it can be clearly demonstrated that suchinfluence does not exist. Conversely, it is presumed that the investor does not exercise significant influence if it holds,directly or indirectly (e.g. through subsidiaries), less than 20 percent of the voting power at stake, unless it can beclearly demonstrated that there is such influence. The existence of another investor, who owns a majority orsubstantial, not necessarily prevent it exerts significant influence”. 63
  • As indicated in Note 2.b.i, and in accordance with IAS 28, investments inentities are initially recorded at their cost. However, IAS 28 does notspecifically define how to determine the cost of associates acquired instages, or how to register the impact of the change in the classification ofan investment in equity instruments from available-for-sale financial assetwhich to an investment in an associate (recorded using the equity method).The change in the classification of the investment in Brisa from an available-for-sale financial asset to an investment in an associate has been recordedby considering that the cost of this shareholding in the associate acquired instages is the sum of the amounts paid in each acquisition (Euros 582,139thousand), plus the share in the profits after dividends and other equitymovements. The goodwill has been calculated in each acquisition based onthe cost and the share of the fair value of the net assets acquired on eachacquisition date and, as indicated Note 2.b.i, forms part of the value of theshareholding.Furthermore, the fall in value recorded under the heading "Reserves -investments available-for-sale" with regard to the investment previouslyclassified under this heading (Euros -359,086 thousand) has been reversedagainst the value of the investment so as to leave it valued at its cost(Euros 582,139 thousand), prior to its reclassification as an investment inan associate (see Note 9).The share in the profits after tax and other equity movements, also bearingin mind the corresponding impairment tests of the goodwill and the fairvalue of the acquired net assets on the date of each acquisition, which havebeen produced from the acquisition dates up to the date of the change tothe classification as associate, has been recorded under the heading"Retained earnings and other reserves" in the Groups consolidatedshareholders equity for a total amount of Euros -319,208 thousand (seeNotes 13). This negative impact has been essentially due to the impairmenttests on the goodwill and the fair value of the net assets acquired.The exchange differences generated in the year relate mainly toshareholdings in associates located in Mexico (investment of Mexican Pesos2,525,407 thousand at 31 December 2011 and Mexican Pesos 2,581,402thousand at 31 December 2010) and Puerto Rico (US Dollars 194,056thousand at 31 December 2011) as a consequence, respectively, of the fall inthe exchange rate of the Mexican peso and the rise of the US dollar. 64
  • The breakdown of the interests in associates accounted for by equityaccounting at 31 December is as follows: 2011 2010Eutelsat 1,105,646 1,068,826Brisa 262,931 - AMP / GAP 167,855 186,499Metropistas 148,853 - Autema 76,399 46,347A’lienor 48,553 66,175Hisdesat y other 31,789 28,380Coviandes 26,968 13,338RMG 10,888 10,125Aerocali 8,566 8,992Coninvial 4,161 1,085Torre Collserola 2,620 2,614Alis/Routalis 2,380 2,133SFB Fueling 799 567Cota 651 636Túnel del Cadí - 22,165PTY - 889Saba Italia (Parcheggi and other) - 2,188La Mercedes - 118Interests in associates 1,899,059 1,461,077 Note:  See information on associates in Appendix III.The shares of Eutelsat are listed on the Paris Stock Exchange and theirquotation at the 2011 year end is Euros 30.15/share, and, accordingly, thefair value of the shareholding of abertis at that date in Eutelsat (31.35%)totals Euros 2,081 million (Euros 1,891 million at the 2010 year end atEuros 27.39/share).As indicated in Note 2.b.i, in the event that the Groups share in the lossesof an associate are equal to or greater than the financial value of itsshareholding, including any other unsecured outstanding accountsreceivable, additional losses will not be recognised unless obligations havebeen have or payments made in the name of the associate. This is the caseof the associates Irasa, Alazor and Ciralsa, whose value through equityaccounting at 31 December 2011 (as in 2010) is 0.  65
  • In all these cases, once the value of the investment has been reduced tozero, no additional losses relating to these associates have beenincorporated as no obligations have been incurred or payments made intheir name, and therefore no corresponding liability has been recorded (alsosee Note 21).The breakdown of the unrecognised additional losses attributable to abertisbased on the above is as follows: 31 December 2011 31 December 2010 Accumulated Accumulated losses from losses from Loss for the Loss for the prior years prior years year Total year Total Irasa 1,634 13,929 15,563 4,337 9,592 13,929 Alazor 10,740 4,976 15,716 3,280 1,696 4,976 (*) Ciralsa 4,537 8,356 12,893 4,196 - 4,196  16,911 27,261 44,172 11,813 11,288 23,101 (*) Accumulated losses from prior years at 31/12/11 includes Euros 4,160 thousand corresponding to transactions directly recorded in other comprehensive income.Similarly, it should be pointed out that an analysis has been carried out onthe recoverability of the credit granted to these associates, bearing in mindthe effect of the financial rebalancing measures established by theAdministration at the end of 2010 (see Note 11), which in none of the casesmake it possible to recover the financial shareholding and thereforeprovisions have been allocated for these holdings (equity accounting valueof 0). 66

AVAILABLE-FOR-SALE FINANCIAL ASSETSThe movement in this entry during the year has been as follows: 2011 2010 At 1 January 474,997 1,342,010 Additions - 275 Disposals (113) (269) Application of the provision for impairment 22 - losses Variation of the provision for impairment losses (1,678) - Capital gains / losses for revaluations released to other comprehensive income (see Note 13) (234,359) (256,518) Transfers to disposable group assets held for sale (1,884) (612,325) Variation in scope (223,053) 91 Cumulative translation adjustment (355) 1,733 At 31 December 13,577 474,997The available-for-sale financial assets as at 31 December 2011 relatemainly to the value of the 14.77% share of the capital in the unlistedcompany Terminal Aérea de Santiago, S.A. for Euros 10,549 thousand(Euros 10,907 thousand as at 31 December 2010). At the 2010 balancesheet date they also included the stock market value of the 14.61% stake inBrisa (Euros 457,412 thousand), which at the 2011 balance sheet date hasbeen classified as a holding in an associate (see Note 8).The loss for the year for revaluations recorded in other comprehensiveincome fully correspond to the shares, which at 31 December 2011 andbefore taking significant influence, abertis holds in the listed company Brisa(Euros -171,870 thousand of fall in value at year end 2010), with thefinancial value of abertis’ holding in Brisa at that moment being Euros359,086 thousand lower than its cost value (in 2010 it was Euros 124,727thousand lower than its cost value).Finally, it should be pointed out that, as explained in Note 8, with effect asfrom 31 December 2011, the holding of 14.61% of the capital of Brisa hasbeen classified as an investment in an associate and is now recorded usingthe equity method. The impact of this change of classification is shown inthe heading of "variation in scope" for the net value between the removal ofits cost value (Euros 582,139 thousand) and the reversal of the recordedaccumulated loss for revaluations with an impact on other comprehensiveincome (Euros 359,086 thousand). 68

  • During the year the subsidiary hit has refinanced part of a floating ratesyndicated loan (loan modification), which through interest-rate swaps wastransformed into a fixed rate. This refinancing has led to the earlycancellation of these interest-rate swaps for a notional amount of Euros700,000 thousand. This early cancellation has led to a negative settlementfor Euros 50,120 thousand recorded in equity at the cancellation date andwhich will be amortised, impacting the income statement, based on theeffective interest rate method until maturity of said refinancing.b) Cross currency interest rate swaps in non-Euro currencyAt 31 December 2011 (as in 2010) abertis has various cross currencyinterest rate and foreign currency swaps of Pounds Sterling 476,000, whichcounter-value in Euros is 682,882 thousand, which are designated ashedges of net foreign investments in ACDL/TBI. The maturity of thederivative financial instrument is in 2015.Additionally, and as was the case in 2010, at 31 December 2011 abertishas hedges in Chilean Pesos totalling CP 428,871,370 thousand and acounter-value of Euros 469,377 thousand, arranged through various crosscurrency swap hedges maturing between 2013 and 2014. These financialinstruments are designated as hedges of net foreign investments indifferent Chilean companies (elqui, gesa, Abertis Chile, Rutas del Pacífico,Autopista Central and opsa).As for the subsidiary abertis airports, at the close of 31 December 2011(as in 2010) it has two net foreign investment hedges. The first in order tohedge the risk of its investment in AMP/GAP in Mexican Pesos through across currency swap totalling Mexican Pesos 2,736,000 thousand. Thecounter-value is Euros 183,378 thousand, and matures in August 2013.The second hedge is to cover the risk of the investment in MBJ in USDthrough a “cross currency swap” of USD 97,772 thousand, or Euros 69,787thousand, maturing in 2014.  71
  • On the other hand, the subsidiary company abertis finance has contractedderivative financial instruments (cross currency interest rate swaps) for anominal value of Euros 122,188 thousand (Euros 244,704 thousand in2010), whereby a bond issue in US dollars at a fixed interest rate istranslated into Euro-denominated debt with a floating interest rate peggedto the Euribor (fair value hedge). Furthermore, it has similar cross currencyswaps of Pounds Sterling 70,000 thousand and USD 46,513 thousand ashedges of a loan extended to ADCL and TBI, Ltd., respectively, for the sameamounts and maturities in 2014 in both cases qualifying also as fair valuehedges. Additionally, this company has contracted a fair value hedge for anominal amount of Euros 153,610 whereby a bond issue in Japanese Yen ata fixed interest rate is translated into Euro-denominated debt also at a fixedrate. Finally, it should be pointed out that this company in 2011 hascontracted derivative instruments which transform a floating rate debt ofUSD 195,000 thousand into a fixed-rate debt also in USD.Lastly, we should point out that at 31 December 2011 (as in 2010)Autopista Central, S.A. has a cross currency swap (maturing in 2026) inorder to eliminate the exchange rate risk related to the USD-denominatedbond issue totalling USD 123,750 thousand (USD 124,375 thousand in2010), taking into account the 50% stake of abertis in this multi-groupcompany. 72

The aforementioned Arrangement stipulates the construction of an additional lane along certain stretches of the AP-7 toll motorway, as well as the implementation of a close toll system. In order to carry out these works, the arrangement estimates that the total value of the investment could reach up to Euros 500 million (at 31 December 2011 the net value of the investment made totals Euros 401,935 thousand, Euros 260,218 thousand at 31 December 2010). 74
  • Accordingly, the Arrangement states that the additional income that mayarise from the increased capacity of the motorway would be allocated torestoring the economic-financial balance altered by the actions laid downunder the Arrangement, which also sets out the procedure for calculatingthe economic compensation that the operator would receive if saideconomic-financial balance has not been restored when the concessionexpires.The receivable balance at 31 December 2011 totals Euros 760,888thousand (Euros 466,735 thousand at 31 December 2010), and theimpact on operating income for the year totals Euros 122,098 thousandwhile net financial income for the year totals Euros 30,338 thousand(Euros 90,980 thousand and Euros 13,697 thousand, respectively, in2010).The contents of Royal Decree 483/1995 entered into as an arrangement inJanuary 2010 between invicat and the Government of Catalonia, whichhas as an appendix a master collaboration Arrangement setting forth thegeneral conditions of modification and adaptation of the widening of thestretch of the C-32 motorway between Palafolls and the connection withprovincial road GI-600, together with other road improvements andmobility management linked to the motorway and its operations in theMaresme corridor. The total value earmarked for the investments is Euros96 million (at year-end 31 December 2011, the value of the investmentmade is Euros 20,794 thousand, the same as at year-end 2010).As was the case with the AP-7 motorway arrangement, the C-32motorway arrangement also stipulates that the additional income thatmay arise from the increased capacity of the motorway would beallocated to restoring the economic-financial balance altered by theactions laid down under the Arrangement, which also sets out theprocedure for calculating the economic compensation that the operatorwould receive if said economic-financial balance has not been restoredwhen the concession expires.The receivable balance at 31 December 2011 totals Euros 39,038thousand (Euros 29,399 thousand at 31 December 2010), and the impacton operating income for the year totals Euros 7,729 thousand while netfinancial income for the year totals Euros 1,910 thousand (Euros 7,353thousand and Euros 1,252 thousand, respectively, in 2010). 75
  • The content of Royal Decree 1467/2008, entered into on 29 August 2008between iberpistas and the Government which provide for the building ofa third lane in each direction in the stretch San Rafael - Villacastín and theperformance of the actions necessary for the infrastructure to meet currentlegislation with regards layout and safety. In order to carry out theseworks, the arrangement estimates that the total value of the investmentcould reach up to Euros 70 million (at 31 December 2011 the value of theinvestment made totals Euros 49,888 thousand, Euros 13,637 thousand at31 December 2010).As with other agreements, this agreement envisages that the additionalincome which may derive from the motorways greater capacity, as wellas the additional increase in the tariffs of 1.7% from 2009 to 2013 (with alimit of 5.5%), will be applied to re-establishing the economic-financialbalance altered by the actions contemplated therein. It also provides theprocedure for calculating the economic compensation to be received bythe Operator in the event that once the concession period has expired,said economic-financial balance has not been restored, with a limit ofEuros 75 million.The receivable balance at 31 December 2011 totals Euros 42,696thousand (Euros 14,533 thousand at 31 December 2010), and the impacton operating income for the year totals Euros -4.548 thousand while netfinancial income for the year totals Euros 810 thousand (Euros -3.193thousand and Euros 602 thousand, respectively, in 2010).The content of Royal Decree 971/2011 of 1 July, which amends certainterms of the administrative concession held by castellana (construction,conservation and operation of the stretches of the AP-6 motorwayconnection with Segovia (AP-61) and AP-6 motorway connection with Ávila(AP-51), as well as the conservation and operation, from 30 January 2018,of the AP-6 toll motorway stretch Villalba - Adanero), to offset the extracosts for additional works, as established in the 41st additional provision ofthe 2010 Budget Act 26/2009, of 23 December, through which theDirectorate-General of Roads has recognised additional works for themotorway construction project, which were not initially planned, for a valueof Euros 89,018 thousand.  76
  • This Royal Decree aims to re-balance the economic position of the concession affected by the additional works which have had to be undertaken. Therefore, bearing in mind the current situation of the concession, it is estimated that the most appropriate method is to extend the tariffs of the AP-6 motorway, regulated in the arrangements approved by Royal Decrees 315/2004, of 20 February, and 1467/2008, of 29 August, in both cases, as much as to offset the aforementioned extra costs as a result of the additional works for a total of Euros 89,018 thousand and the interest for the delay in the payment to re-establish the economic balance for this item, which total Euros 29,471 thousand (see Note 20.d).The breakdown of balances with associates is as follows: 2011 2010 Non current Current Total Non current Current TotalAusol - 2,290 2,290 - 3,044 3,044Metropistas - 386 386 - - -Cota - 236 236 - 228 228Eutelsat - 192 192 - 164 164Alazor - 59 59 - 107 107Ciralsa - 48 48 - 96 96Other holdings - 330 330 - 152 152Accounts receivable - 3,541 3,541 - 3,791 3,791Alis 42,968 - 42,968 41,387 - 41,387Irasa 35,296 - 35,296 35,296 - 35,296Ciralsa 23,875 - 23,875 22,711 - 22,711Alazor 18,683 - 18,683 32,765 - 32,765A’lienor 17,100 - 17,100 13,125 - 13,125RMG 7,193 - 7,193 6,229 - 6,229Coviandes - - - - 6,967 6,967Metropistas - 372 372 - - -Other holdings - - - 500 - 500Loans extended 145,115 372 145,487 152,013 6,967 158,980Impairment provisionIrasa (see Note 20.d) (35,296) - (35,296) (35,296) - (35,296)Ciralsa (see Note 20.d) (23,875) - (23,875) - - - Alazor (see Note 20.d) (18,683) - (18,683) - - -  (77,854) - (77,854) (35,296) - (35,296)Total 67,261 3,913 71,174 116,717 10,758 127,475 77
  • As at year end 2010, the non-current debtor balance with Irasa, Alazor yCiralsa at 31 December 2011 relates mainly to the loans extended basicallyto finance the companies for the expropriation cost overruns.Given certain indications of impairment recorded in 2010 on the full amountof the loan with Irasa and the existence of certain indications of impairmenton the rest of these loans, on the 2011 balance sheet date, the Group hasassessed their recoverability and the capacity that these companies areexpected to have in facing the repayment of their debt, on the basis offuture cash flow projections taking into account as well the impact of thefinancing of these companies. To do this the company has considered thefinancial balancing measures established at the end of 2010 (basically tooffset the cost overruns in works and expropriations) established in thelegal provisions detailed in Note 11 of the 2010 consolidated annualaccounts.The impairment tests performed have revealed the maintenance of theimpairment recorded in 2010 for the full amount of the loan with Irasi, aswell as the existence on the balance sheet date of 2011 of impairment forthe full amount of the loan with Alazor and Ciralsa. The correspondingprovision for impairment has therefore been allocated as at 31 December2011.12.

  • i) Legal reserveIn accordance with the Spanish Corporate Enterprises Act, 10% of theannual profits must be allocated to the legal reserve until this reservereaches at least 20% of the capital. The legal reserve cannot be distributedto shareholders unless the Company is wound up.The legal reserve can be used to increase capital in the part of the balancethat exceeds 10% of the capital already increased.Apart from the purpose mentioned above, provided that this reserve doesnot exceed 20% of share capital, it can only be used to offset losses whenthere are no other reserves available for this purpose.ii) Retained earnings (excluding net income for the year) and otherreservesThis account includes the “goodwill reserve”, which, as from 2008, andunder current corporate legislation in force (art. 273 of the SpanishCorporate Enterprises Act), must be set up by the Spanish companies in theabertis Group. These companies must make appropriations to a non-distributable reserve equivalent to the goodwill stated under assets thatamounts to at least 5% of the goodwill. If these earnings do not exist orwere insufficient, freely distributable reserves must be used. As long as thegoodwill is maintained, this reserve will not be available for distribution.At 31 December 2011, the goodwill reserve of abertis totals Euros 72thousand (Euros 30,870 thousand at year end 31 December 2010). Thechange in the year is due to the corporate reorganisation carried out inDecember 2011 (with no impact on the consolidated annual accounts)detailed in Note 2.b.vii, because of which the goodwill which AbertisInfraestructuras, S.A. had recorded in its assets following the takeovermerger of iberpistas in 2004 has been de-registered. Therefore, theallocations to this reserve made up to the time of the aforementionedreorganisation, totalling Euros 46,233 thousand, have been transferred tovoluntary reserves.Similarly, at the 2011 year-end, the companies of the abertis Groupsubject to the aforementioned requirement, have proposed thecorresponding allocation in the distribution of the profit for the year, basedon the provisions in the aforementioned article.  86

  • The final dividend for 2010 relates mainly to the payment made for thisitem by Holding d’Infrastructures de Transport S.A.S (HIT) to the rest of itsshareholders.The change in scope in 2011 is due to the impact of Abertis Infraestructuras,S.A. selling the 78.06% stake which it held in Saba Infraestructuras, S.A.,following the payment of an interim dividend for the 2011 net income of Euro0.67 per share optionally exchangeable for shares of Saba Infraestructuras,S.A. (see Note 26) which involved recognising a non-controlling interest of21.94% in Saba Infraestructuras, S.A.e) Interim dividend and proposed dividendsThe determination of the distribution of dividends is made on the basis ofthe parent company accounts of Abertis Infraestructuras, S.A., under themercantile legislation in force in Spain.The dividends to be distributed to shareholders are recorded as liabilities inthe consolidated annual accounts as soon as the dividends are approved bythe Annual Shareholders’ Meeting (or by the Board of Directors in the caseof interim dividends) until their payment.In 2011 an interim dividend totalling Euros 232,797 thousand was paid,equivalent to Euros 0.30 gross per share, payable on all the shares thatmake up the share capital of Abertis Infraestructuras, S.A (Euros 221,711thousand at year end 2010, also Euros 0.30 gross per share).In addition, as indicated in section c) of this Note, in the framework of thereorganisation of the car parks and logistics facilities businesses detailed inNote 26.b, abertis has paid an extraordinary interim dividend of Euros495,155 thousand, which represents Euros 0.67 gross per share. The following provisional accounting statement was prepared by AbertisInfraestructuras, S.A., in accordance with the legal requirements,demonstrating that there was sufficient profit for the payment of theaforementioned interim dividends and justifying the existence of sufficientliquidity to make the payment: 90

  • The Directors of Abertis Infraestructuras, S.A. will also submit the followingproposed distribution of the 2011 net income of abertis to theShareholders’ Meeting for approval: Available for distribution (Profit and loss) 3,048,088 Distribution: Dividends 1,007,308 Legal reserve 3,860 Goodwill reserve (see Note 13.c.ii) 24 Voluntary reserves 2,036,896 3,048,088In the event that on the dividend distribution date abertis were to holdshares without dividend rights, the corresponding amount would betransferred to voluntary reserves.f) Earnings per sharei) BasicAs shown below, the basic earnings per share are calculated by dividing netincome for the year attributable to the equity holders of abertis by theweighted average number of shares in circulation during the year, excludingthe average number of treasury shares held by the Group, and taking intoaccount that the impact of the bonus share issue in the proportion of oneshare for every 20 old shares, adopted by the General Meeting ofShareholders of 21 June 2011, would have occurred at the beginning ofthe year adjusting its effect retroactively for the periods presented. 2011 2010 Ongoing Discontinued Ongoing Discontinued operations operations Total operations operations TotalNet income attributable to equity holders 701,893 18,201 720,094 627,876 33,739 661,615Weighted average number of ordinary shares in circulation 757,540 757,540 757,540 760,533 760,533 760,533 (thousand)Basic earnings per share (€/share) 0,93 0,02 0,95 0,83 0,04 0,87Diluted earnings per share (€/share) 0,93 0,02 0,95 0,83 0,04 0,87 92
  • The average number of ordinary shares in circulation slightly fell in 2011since there was an increase in the number of treasury shares as aconsequence of the gradual buybacks carried out in the second half of theyear (as mentioned above, the impact of the bonus share issue in theproportion of one share for every 20 old shares, adopted by the GeneralMeeting of Shareholders of 21 June 2011, was taken into account at thebeginning of the year adjusting its effect retroactively for the previousyear).ii) DilutedDiluted earnings per share are determined using the calculation describedabove, the effect of taking into account the conversion of all the potentialdilutive shares (share options) as if they were ordinary shares of abertis.Thus, it is estimated that the conversion of the shares occurs at thebeginning of the year, or, if circulated during the same year, at their date ofissue.In 2011 (as in 2010) abertis maintains potential dilutive shares in the formof share options, although their impact on the average weighted number ofshares in circulation is not significant, and, accordingly, diluted earnings pershare do not differ from the basic earnings per share. 93
  • 14. BORROWINGSBorrowings break down as follows: 2011 2010 Non current Loans from credit institutions 6,121,806 7,721,032 Bonds and other loans 7,330,270 6,517,336 13,452,076 14,238,368 Loans from companies consolidated by equity accounting 10,284 9,413 Non current borrowings 13,462,360 14,247,781 Current Loans from credit institutions 779,069 754,950 Bonds and other loans 41,377 140,207 820,446 895,157 Loans from companies consolidated by equity accounting 461 1,034 Interest on loans and bonds 262,402 231,982 Current borrowings 1,083,309 1,128,173 Borrowings 14,545,669 15,375,954Non-current payable balances with companies consolidated by equityaccounting at the year end 31 December 2011 (as in 2010) are mainly withRoad Management Group (RMG).At 31 December 2011 of total borrowings, Euros 6,365,278 thousand (Euros6,540,417 thousand in 2010) relate to HIT/Sanef, of which, Euros6,064,746 thousand is non-current borrowings (Euros 6,038,296 thousandin 2010). 94
  • Various financing transactions have been carried out during the year thathave meant new funds for the Group totalling Euros 1,385,603 thousand, tomeet some of the maturity of the debt in 2011 (cancelling debt totallingEuros 1,935,613 thousand) and improving Group liquidity, thus reinforcingits financial position. Amongst these of special note is the refinancing (debtmodification) carried out by hit for Euros 750 million, as well as the debtpayback with the treasury from the sale of Atlantia for Euros 625,558thousand and the car parks and logistics facilities businesses for Euros311,521 thousand.Considering the Groups treasury position as indicated in Note 12, netborrowings (excluding payables with companies consolidated by equityaccounting and interest on loans and bonds) fell Euros 769,685 thousand,down to Euros 13,881,512 thousand. This reduction in the Groupsborrowings is mainly due to the impact of the aforementioned sale ofAtlantia (which allowed the early payback of a syndicated loan of Euros515,000 thousand, as well as part of the Euros 183,221 thousandcorresponding to credit lines which Abertis Infraestructuras, S.A. had drawndown at the 2010 balance sheet date), the impact of the sale of the carparks and logistics facilities businesses indicated in Note 26.b, the positivefree cash flow after investments and ordinary dividends paid generated inthe year and the impact of the exchange rate in the debt of Groupcompanies (higher measurement of Euros 57,200 thousand, mainly inChilean companies), offsetting the payment of the extraordinary dividendcarried out in the year, as well as the return of contributions toshareholders and other effects.Set out below is the maturity of the non-current borrowings matched totheir outstanding terms at the balance sheet date until the date of maturityas stipulated in the respective loan arrangements. Thus, the amount shownbelow relates to the cash flows stipulated by contract, which differ from thecarrying amount of the borrowings due to the effect of applying IFRScriteria set down in IAS-39 on borrowings: 2011 2010 Between 1 and 2 years 1,827,267 1,523,400 Between 2 and 3 years 1,120,116 2,574,347 Between 3 and 4 years 853,464 1,124,359 Between 4 and 5 years 1,640,492 793,230 More than 5 years 7,922,424 8,325,123 Non-current borrowings 13,363,763 14,340,459 Current borrowings 781,922 640,980 Total borrowings 14,145,685 14,981,439 95
  • Of the Euros 14,145,685 thousand, Euros 8,020,471 thousand (57%) relateto the borrowings of subsidiary and multi-group companies without recourseto Abertis Infraestructuras, S.A. (Euros 8,462,595 thousand in 2010, in thiscase 56%).Furthermore, the accrual and settlement of interest on the loans mentionedabove will be made on the basis of the specific conditions and maturities,and it is estimated that for 2012 an interest payment based on borrowingsat the year end at 31 December 2011 totals approximately Euros 708million (Euros 679 million estimated at the 2010 year end for 2011).Group borrowings (without taking into account the currency swapsmentioned in Note 10) are denominated in the following currencies: 2011 2010 Euro 12,526,605 13,149,104 Chilean Peso 694,249 904,564 US Dollar 655,278 618,434 Yen 177,670 184,077 Pound Sterling 83,802 58,089 Other currencies 8,081 67,171 Borrowings 14,145,685 14,981,439As mentioned in Note 10, a large part of borrowings in US Dollars and allthe borrowings in Yen are translated into Euros through financialderivatives.The average weighted interest rate for 2011 on bond debt issued by creditinstitutions has been 4.65% (4.53% in 2010), and there have been nosignificant fluctuations between currencies.At the close of 31 December 2011, 84% (84% also in 2010) of borrowingswere fixed interest or fixed through hedges, and, accordingly, possiblefluctuations in interest rates that could significantly impact theseconsolidated annual accounts are not expected. 96
  • Thus, the estimated sensitivity of the consolidated income statementresulting from the variation in interest rates on floating debt taking intoaccount the effect of a 50bp variation, would be as follows: 2011 2010 Borrowings in Borrowings in(million) Euros Pounds Total Euros Pounds TotalVariation of 50pb: Gross effect before tax 9.7 1.8 11.5 10.0 2.3 12.3 Net effect after tax 6.8 1.2 8.0 7.0 1.6 8.6Additionally, in relation to the sensitivity of fluctuations in interest rates onderivative transactions, we should point out that in aggregate terms thesensitivity of all the operations as a whole in derivatives broken down at 31December 2011, with a variation in the interest rate curve for the EUR,USD, MXN, YEN, CLP and GBP of 50 basis points, all other variablesremaining constant, the fair value of the derivative transactions as a wholewould vary by Euros 5.8 million (Euros 9.0 million in 2010), and the netimpact on equity would total Euros 9.2 million and Euros 0.143 million onearnings after tax (Euros 19.4 million in net equity and Euros 0.001 millionin 2010 earnings after tax).The carrying value and fair value of the non current bonds and borrowingsat the close of the year has been as follows: 2011 2010 Carrying value Fair value Carrying value Fair value Loans from credit institutions 6,121,806 6,517,038 7,721,032 7,963,039 Bonds 7,330,270 7,522,605 6,517,336 6,448,142 13,452,076 14,039,643 14,238,368 14,411,181The carrying value of current borrowings is similar to their fair value. 97
  • The Group has the following undrawn credit facilities and loans: 2011 2010 Floating rate: Maturing in less than one year 421,585 557,348 Maturing in more than one year 1,497,773 702,108 Undrawn credit facilities 1,919,358 1,259,456The undrawn credit facilities relate primarily to a credit facility contracted byabertis at 31 December 2011 to meet treasury needs.Finally, we should point out that in relation to the main financing contractsin force at the 2011 year end, there are no (as was also the case in 2010)pignorated financial assets relevant to these consolidated annual accountsguaranteeing liabilities or contingent liabilities. Consequently, there are nocommitments or clauses related to the financing arrangements which at theyear end of these consolidated annual accounts have made liabilitiesimmediately due and payable to the lender.15. DEFERRED INCOMEThe movement recorded during the year has been as follows: 2011 2010 At 1 January 47,226 156,400 Variation in scope and business combinations - 6,031 Additions 2,415 811 Disposals (3,054) (5,586) (*) Transfers - (111,313) Transfers to disposable group liabilities held for sale (17,689) - Cumulative translation adjustment (157) 883 At 31 December 28,741 47,226 (*) In 2010 as a result of the impact of the modification in that year in the application of the mixed model under IFRIC12 in the operator elqui, with effects in the presentation of the deferred income and debtor balances and with no significant effect on equity. 98
  • At year end 31 December 2011, deferred income mainly includes: Compensation to aumar from the Public Administration for works carried out in Sagunto, for Euros 10,363 thousand (Euros 11,611 thousand in 2010). This is charged to results over the life of the concession (until 2019). Revenue received by acesa for assignment of the use of fibre optic conduits for Euros 4,872 thousand (Euros 5,359 thousand in 2010) which are taken to profit and loss on a straight-line basis up to the end of the concession in 2021 (time period of the assignment). Revenue received by the subgroup ACDL for grants collected by Skavsta and from sums received from operators of shops in Luton airport for the minimum guaranteed revenue in the coming years for Euros 4,261 thousand (Euros 2,490 thousand in 2010), which are taken to profit and loss over five years.16. TRADE AND OTHER PAYABLESThe breakdown of this account entry at 31 December has been as follows: 2011 2010 Trade creditors 405,827 517,837 Amounts owing to related parties 14,008 16,962 Outstanding remuneration 110,839 87,460 Other payables 10,805 11,583 Trade and other payables 541,479 633,842Group companies with tax residence in Spain have changed their terms ofpayment in order to come into line with the provisions of Additional ProvisionThree of the “Duty of Information” Act, Law 15/2010/5 July. In accordancewith the provisions of the aforementioned Act, information relating to thepayments made and outstanding payments on the balance sheet date aregiven below: 99
  • 2011 2010 Within the legal payment period (85 days in 2011 261,107 221,556 and 2010) Outside legal payment period 8,894 87,423 Payments for the year 270,001 308,979 Average Payment Period (No. Of days) of the exceeded payments (*) 14 16 Balance of outstanding payments to suppliers 3,034 12,303 delayed beyond the legal period Balance of outstanding payments to suppliers (**) 115,561 204,318 (*) Average number of exceeded days of the payments to suppliers made outside the legal payment period. (**) Of these, those affected by the aforementioned 3rd Additional Provision of the "Duty of Information" Act 15/2010, of 5 July, totalled Euros 31,045 thousand in 2011 and Euros 49,274 thousand in 2010.The balance of outstanding payments to suppliers delayed beyond the legalpayment period is mainly due to certain specific deviations in thetelecommunications business.17. CORPORATE INCOME TAXa) Fiscal informationabertis pays tax on a consolidated basis, as parent company of the taxGroup, which includes all subsidiary companies in which it holds at least75% and with tax residence in Spain. The Group subsidiary companies withtax residence in the United Kingdom and France pay tax on a combinedbasis as applied there. The other companies included in the consolidationscope are taxed individually.At 31 December 2011, the Group has all the taxes applicable to it and forwhich the statute of limitations has not expired open to inspection. Inaddition, the Spanish tax Group has general inspection proceedings openwith regard to Corporate Income Tax for the years 2006 to 2009 and, withregards VAT and Personal Income Tax for financial years 2007 to 2009.However, abertis believes that no significant effects on equity will arisefrom the aforementioned inspections or the differences in interpretingcurrent tax legislation with regards the other financial years endingverification. 100
  • Accordingly, at year end 31 December 2011, the Tax Authorities haveraised tax assessments against abertis based on audits made mainly forCorporate income tax and in particular in relation to export deductions inthe 2001 and 2002 corporate income tax return. These assessments haveall been signed in disagreement and have been appealed and are pendingthe decision of the respective competent jurisdictional bodies. The amountof these inspections, for which a full provision has been allocated, totalEuros 3 million at 31 December 2011.In 2011 abertis paid in full the amount arising from the partial inspectionon export deductions applied to Corporate Income Tax in 2000, whichamounted to Euros 28 million. This did not have an impact on theconsolidated income statement for the year as a provision had already beenallocated for this amount in the consolidated annual accounts of previousyears (see Note 19).It should also be pointed out that in 2008 the tax authorities initiatedinspection proceedings against abertis as successor of the company AureaConcesiones de Infraestructuras, S.A., signed in disagreement, for theimproper application in 2002 of the "Asset Revaluation Reserve RDL 7/96”.The amount of the aforementioned proceedings totals Euros 60 millionaffluent December 2011 and has been appealed against in thecorresponding Courts. At 31 December 2011, no provision has beenallocated in this matter (as in 2010), as it is understood that there are solidarguments to defend the unlawful nature of the regularisations made by theTax Inspectors and that these will be approved by the competent legalbodies.b) Corporate income tax expenseThe general Corporate Tax rate applicable in 2011 is 30.00% in Spain (nochange in the year), 26.00% in the United Kingdom (28% in 2010), 36.10%in France (34.43% in 2010) and 20% in Chile (17% in 2010). 101

(**) The impact of different tax rates in some countries, as well as the net income of companies consolidated by equity accounting (taxed at origin), is reflected in the other headings (mainly in “Other tax effects”).The Corporate income tax expense for the year breaks down as follows (forfully consolidated or proportionally consolidated companies): (*) 2011 2010 Current tax 236,907 262,770 Deferred tax: Tax reform in UK, France and Chile (10,754) (3,706) Other variations in deferred tax 10,343 (27,670) Others 13,132 (8,193) Tax expense 249,628 223,201 (*) Composition of the 2010 corporate income tax expense considering the impact of the classification of the car parks and logistics facilities operating segments as discontinued operations in application of IFRS 5 as indicated in Notes 1 and 26.As a consequence of the reduction in the general Corporate Tax rate in theUK from 27% to 26% as from 1 April 2011 and that already approved from26% to 25% as from 1 April 2012, the Groups companies with taxresidence in the UK have recorded a lower tax expense accrued in the yearfor an amount of Euros 11,031 thousand as a result of the reduction indeferred tax liabilities (in 2010 they also recorded a lower expense foraccrued tax in the year for an amount of Euros 5,862 thousand due to thereduction in deferred tax liabilities, a consequence of the reduction in thegeneral Corporate Tax rate from 28% to 27% as from 1 January 2011). 102
  • It should also be pointed out that in 2010, companies with tax residence inChile recorded a higher tax expense for the year totalling Euros 2,156thousand due to the increase in the deferred tax liabilities that are expectedto be reverted in 2011 and 2012, as a result of change in the generalcorporate income tax rate in these years (17% to 20% in 2011 and in 2012from 20% to 18.5%).c) Deferred taxesThe balance of the recognised deferred assets and liabilities and theirmovements during the year have been as follows: 2011 2010 Deferred tax Deferred tax Deferred tax Deferred tax asset liability asset liabilityAt 1 January 798,485 (1,773,729) 726,992 (1,740,019)Charges/(credits) to incomestatement (*) (35,151) 35,924 13,603 18,106Charges/(credits) for inclusion in consolidation scope and business combinations - - 5,136 (17,566)Charges / (credits) to net equity (21,636) 227 18,846 20,334Transfers - - 5,051 (5,051)Cumulative translation adjustment (7,674) 13,270 28,857 (49,533)Transfer to disposable group assets /(liabilities) held for sale (57,843) 70,111 - -At 31 December 676,181 (1,654,197) 798,485 (1,773,729)(*) In 2011 it includes the impact indicated in section b) above as a result of the tax reform in the UK and France, and in 2010 as result of the tax reform in the UK and Chile.The cumulative translation adjustments generated during the year relatemainly to the deferred tax liabilities of companies with tax residence in theUK (Pounds Sterling 124,828 thousand in 2011 and Pounds Sterling 137,935thousand in 2010) and to deferred tax assets and liabilities of Chileancompanies (Chilean Pesos (CP) 64,823,253 thousand and CP 155,282,258thousand, respectively, in 2011 and CP 75,192,741 thousand and CP167,688,986 thousand in 2010) as a result of the appreciation of the PoundSterling and the depreciation of the Chilean Peso at the year end.Of the total deferred tax assets and liabilities booked at 31 December 2011,it is estimated that Euros 62,541 thousand and Euros 79,080 thousand,respectively, will be reverted in 2011 (Euros 47,916 thousand and Euros78,617 thousand, respectively, at 2010 year end estimated for 2011). 103
  • The deferred tax assets recorded at the close of 2011 (as in 2010) mainlycorrespond to tax credits and the tax effect of the provisions associated withapplication of the “intangible model” under IFRIC 12 and, in the case ofcompanies with tax residence in Spain, to the reversal of the financial chargerecorded under the principles of the Spanish General Chart of Accounts.Therefore, tax loss carry forwards available for offset at 31 December 2011total Euros 559,102 thousand (Euros 663,951 thousand in 2010), of whichEuros 453,590 thousand (Euros 565,995 thousand in 2010) are generated bythe Chilean companies acquired (without a maturity date), and the othershave expiry dates mainly between 2012 and 2030. Of these tax losses,Euros 91,583 thousand (Euros 111,270 thousand in 2010) is included indeferred tax assets.As at the 2010 balance sheet date, the deferred tax liabilities recorded at the2010 year end are mainly for the tax effect related recording at fair value ofthe net assets and liabilities acquired in various business combinations and/orchanges in the consolidation scope, the main impact being as follows: Addition 2011 2010 (**)Cilsa (44% proportional consolidation) 2010 - 10,603Acquisition of Itínere assets: 2009 Avasa (additional 50%) 210,306 224,444 (*) Rutas del pacífico (additional 50%) 11,905 13,969 (*)Acquisition of Invin Group 2008 135,646 154,844Acquisition of 33.38% of Hispasat Group 2008 6,590 7,596 (*)Acquisition of DCA Group 2008 22,624 22,938Acquisition of HIT/Sanef Group 2006 578,109 610,523 (*)Acquisition of ACDL/TBI Group 2005 96,238 97,226 (*) In the case of Rutas del Pacífico and the Invin Group, the variation was affected by the depreciation at the year end of the Chilean Peso, in the case of the ACDL/TBI Group, due to the revaluation of the GBP at year end, and to a lesser extent, in the case of the DCA Group, due to the revaluation at the year end of the USD. (**) Shareholding disposed of in 2011 as a consequence of the corporate reorganisation carried out (see Note 26).At 31 December 2011, the deductible temporary differences withsubsidiaries, multi-group companies and/or associates not recorded inaccordance with the accounting policy mentioned in Note 3.k mainlycorrespond to negative reserves of investments in associates for anapproximate amount of Euros 428 million (approximately Euros 233 million at31 December 2010). 104
  • 18. OBLIGATIONS FOR EMPLOYEE BENEFITSAmongst the obligations with its employees, different Spanish Groupcompanies are sponsors of defined contribution pension plans and/or havecommitments for defined contribution and/or defined benefit pensioncommitments, arranged through insurance policies, as set down inlegislation governing the transfer of pension commitments.Internationally, the different Group companies have defined contributionand/or defined benefit commitments with their employees. Thesecommitments are managed through external entities except in thosecountries where local legislation allows internal funds to be maintained.Together with the above obligations, several Group companies have long-term commitments with their employees for length of service bonuses andvacation pay also regulated by Collective Bargaining Arrangements, foruninterrupted employment with the company. With regard to themeasurement of these obligations, a liability is included in the balance sheetfor this heading for a total amount of Euros 7,462 thousand (Euros 7,231thousand in 2010, which included Euros 287 thousand corresponding toexisting obligations in the car parks operating segment), with a non-currentliability recorded for this item totally Euros 4,796 thousand (Euros 5,110thousand in 2010, which included the Euros 287 thousand corresponding tothe obligations existing in the car parks operating segment). The amountrecorded as staff costs in 2011 for these obligations is Euros 977 thousand(Euros 1,117 thousand in 2010). See Note 20.c.The economic-actuarial information on the existing liability for pensioncommitments of the Group’s various companies with their employees is asfollows:a) Defined contribution commitmentsThe amount recorded for the year as personnel expense in the consolidatedincome statement for defined contribution commitments totals Euros 6,980thousand (Euros 6,552 thousand in 2010). See Note 20.c. 105
  • b) Defined benefit commitmentsExcept in those countries where local legislation allows for internal funds,pension commitments are covered using insurance policies or separateentities, in accordance with the applicable regulation in each country, withthe amounts taken off the balance sheet. Nevertheless, this account entryincludes the obligations and their corresponding asset affected where thelegal obligation or implied obligation to meet the agreed benefits remains.In relation to obligations of this type, as of 31 December 2011, abertis haspension commitments relating to defined benefit plans in five countries: In Spain, abertis, serviabertis, aumar, autopistas España, acesa, invicat and aucat have pension commitments deriving from retirement bonuses covered by the Collective Bargaining Arrangements. These commitments are financed externally as per local legislation. In France, the companies in the HIT/Sanef Group offer retirement bonuses under a legal obligation. Sanef has a defined benefit pension plan for executives and sanef and sapn each have early retirement plans. The pension plan for executives is the only one that is financed externally. In the USA, the tbi airport management Group has a defined benefit pension plan for some workers. The plan offers a fixed life-time pension whose amount depends on the work centre and is independent of salary. The plan is financed externally as per local legislation. In the UK, tbi airport management has two pension plans financed externally under local legislation: o The London Luton Airport Pension Scheme open to new participants. o The tbi Group Final Salary Pension Scheme (Belfast and Cardiff airports) for a closed group. Furthermore, the London Luton airport has a commitment with a closed group of fire-fighters, for additional services recognised in the pension plan. The liability for this plan is included jointly with the pension plan for the London Luton airport. 106

CONTINGENCIES AND COMMITMENTSAt 31 December 2011 the Group has given guarantees to third partiesprovided by financial institutions totalling Euros 430,358 thousand (Euros697,478 thousand in 2010, Euro 628,985 thousand without considering thecar parks and logistics facilities businesses). Of these, Euros 180,826thousand (Euros 259,186 thousand in 2010, Euros 191,601 thousandwithout considering the car parks and logistics facilities businesses)correspond to guarantees for operating commitments of the different Groupcompanies. The rest correspond to certain commitments assumed bysubsidiaries and associates (investments, financing, etc). Thesecommitments are not expected to generate significant costs.The subsidiary company aumar has given guarantees to its investeecompany Ciralsa totalling Euros 4,987 thousand (as in 2010). Furthermore,the Company has given guarantees to its subsidiary company aulesatotalling Euros 40 million (Euros 41 million in 2010) for a financingarrangement. Additionally, the financing contracts of the associate Alazorinclude the commitment by its shareholders to make additionalcontributions based on the occurrence of certain events relating to themaintenance of financial ratios to cover and the service of the debt certainadditional non-financeable costs. These commitments are not expected toresult in significant impacts for the abertis Group.With regard to the operator company Accesos de Madrid/Alazor, asindicated in Note 21 of the 2010 consolidated annual accounts (and oncethe measures to restore the financial balance adopted by the Administrationat the end of 2010 are established), abertis, through the subsidiarycompany iberpistas, which holds the current 35.12% stake in Alazor (aholding company owning all the shares of Accesos de Madrid), can decide toexecute, during a period ending March 2011, in accordance with theprovisions of certain arrangements with the other shareholders of Alazor,various cross sale and/or purchase options of stakes in the aforementionedcompany with the other shareholders (some of which are related to theGroup), under certain conditions. Within the deadlines provided, abertispresented the corresponding documentation so as to execute the options,with their execution not yet resolved as at year end 31 December 2011. Atany event, on the basis of the analysis and evaluation of thesearrangements entered into by iberpistas, no significant impacts on theseconsolidated annual accounts have come to light.Additionally, at the end of the financial year, the Group has a commitmentto purchase tangible assets for Euros 90,850 thousand (Euros 3,464thousand in 2010). 115
  • On 16 February 2012, the National High Court rejected the contentious-administrative appeal presented by abertis telecom against the Resolutiondated 19 May 2009 of the Board of the National Competition Committee,which imposed a fine of Euros 22.7 million on abertis telecom as itconsidered that the latter had abused its dominant position in certaincontracts of 2006 and 2008. In this regard, abertis telecom will file anappeal with the Supreme Court. At any event the final resolution of theprocess is not expected to have a significant impact on the equity ofabertis with regards these consolidated annual accounts.Finally, it should be pointed out that on 8 February 2012, the Board of theNational Competition Committee issued a Resolution imposing a fine ofEuros 13.7 million on abertis telecom for narrowing margins in certaincontracts. The Group intends to file a contentious-administrative appealagainst this resolution with the National High Court as it considers that thesanction is totally unfounded, and considers that the consequences whichmay arise from it would not have a material effect on these consolidatedannual accounts.22.

  • Finally, the effect on cash flows relating to discontinued operations is asfollows: 2011 2010 Sale of shareholding in Atlantia, S.p.A 625,558 29,167 Reorganisation car parks and logistics facilities businesses 543,649 (21,332) Effect on cash flows 1,169,207 7,835a) Sale of shareholding in AtlantiaOn 13 January 2011 abertis (acting through its Italian subsidiary AcesaItalia S.r.l, of which it is the sole shareholder) began the private placementamongst qualified investors of its 40,099,848 of Atlantia S.p.A. representing6.68% of its share capital. This placement took place through a “quickplacement” procedure and was completed on 14 January 2011. As a result,the sale of the stake was completed for a price of Euros 625,558 thousand,generating in 2011 a gain for consolidation purposes of Euros 150,706thousand, which has had an additional impact on equity to that recorded atthe 31 December 2010 year end of Euros 13,233 thousand. As a result ofthis operation, abertis has no stake whatsoever in the share capital ofAtlantia.b) Reorganisation car parks and logistics facilities businessesOn 23 February 2011 abertis announced the start of the study of areorganisation process for the structure of its businesses with the aim ofstrengthening the growth of its 5 activity sectors, which could culminatewith the grouping together of its five businesses around two companies:Abertis Infraestructuras, S.A., which would comprise the operating sectorsof motorways, telecommunications and airports, and Saba Infraestructuras,S.A. which would comprise the car parks and logistics facilities businesses.On 18 May 2011, and within the context of the proposal of resolutionsratified by the Annual Shareholders Meeting on 21 June 2011, abertisdisclosed the agreement reached by its Board of Directors to carry out thereorganisation process of its businesses which had been announced severalmonths previously. This agreement involved: 124
  • Contributing the car parks and logistics facilities businesses to the new incorporated company Saba Infraestructuras, S.A. by means of contribution of all of the shares owned by Abertis Infraestructuras, S.A. in Saba Aparcamientos, S.A. and Abertis Logística, S.A. through a capital increase of Euros 399 million, equivalent to Euro 0.54 per share. This valuation was considered as fair by the independent expert appointed by the Companies Registry. Firstly, by offering the current shareholders of abertis the possibility (up to 22 July 2011) of holding part of the capital of Saba Infraestructuras, S.A. by means of the payment of an interim dividend for the 2011 profits of Euro 0.67 per share, with the shareholders of abertis able to choose between receiving it i) in cash or ii) in shares of Saba Infraestructuras, S.A. (at the rate of one share of this company for one share of abertis) at the aforementioned valuation of Euro 0.54 per share plus an additional cash sum of Euro 0.13 per share. Transferring, in accordance with the share purchase contract which abertis held with Criteria CaixaHolding, S.A.U. (and other third parties), at the price of Euro 0.54 per share, the same valuation as that offered to abertis shareholders, the full amount of the shares owned by abertis in Saba Infraestructuras, S.A. which had not been awarded to the current shareholders as part of the payment of the aforementioned interim dividend.With regard to the detailed process, on 22 July 2011 at the end of theperiod for swapping Abertis Infraestructuras, S.A. shares for SabaInfraestructuras, S.A. shares, 21.94% of abertis shareholders opted toreceive the payment of the interim dividend for the 2011 profits of Euro0.67 per share, approved by the Annual Shareholders Meeting held in June2011, in shares of Saba Infraestructuras, S.A. (at the rate of one share ofthis company for one share of abertis) at a valuation of Euro 0.54 pershare plus an additional cash sum of Euro 0.13 per share (see Note 13.c). 125
  • Finally, based on the aforementioned share purchase agreement whichabertis held with Criteria CaixaHolding, S.A.U. and other third parties, on26 October 2011 the sale was executed of the 78.06% of the shares ofSaba Infraestructuras, S.A. which were still owned by AbertisInfraestructuras, S.A. for a total amount of Euros 311.5 million, at Euro0.54 per share. This was the same valuation offered to the shareholders ofabertis in July during the payment of the interim dividend for the 2011profits of Euro 0.67 per share. As indicated above, this interim dividendcould be received in shares of Saba Infraestructuras, S.A. at the rate of 1share of this company for 1 share of abertis at a valuation of Euro 0.54 pershare plus an additional cash sum of Euro 0.13 per share.Accordingly, once the whole process described above had concluded on 26October 2011, abertis had disposed of its entire shareholding in the carparks and logistics facilities operating segments.As a consequence of the whole reorganisation process carried out, andbased on the provisions of IFRS 5 - "Non-current assets held for sale anddiscontinued operations", at the close of 30 June 2011, the assets andliabilities relating to the car parks and logistics facilities operating segmentswere presented as disposable group assets and liabilities held for salefollowing approval by the shareholders of their disposal in the second half ofthe year. In addition, as these were operating segments, the full amounts ofincome and expenses for the period are presented as net income fromdiscontinued operations.The key financial figures relating to the operations discontinued as a resultof the reorganisation of the car parks and logistics facilities businesses up totheir disposal on 26 October 2011 included at year end 31 December 2011and the corresponding comparative figures at year end 2010 are as follows: 126

  • The corporate reorganisation action commented above (which involved thedisposal of the car parks and logistics operating segments), and based onthe sales price agreed with their buyers, determined by the level of returnrequired by said buyers, has resulted in a joint loss after tax of Euros -134,143 thousand being revealed at the time of their classification as non-current assets held for sale.27.

  • ABERTIS INFRAESTRUCTURAS, S.A.AND SUBSIDIARY COMPANIESCONSOLIDATED MANAGEMENT REPORT FOR 20111. INFORMATION REQUIRED UNDER THE PROVISIONS OF ARTICLE 262 OF THE CORPORATE ENTERPRISES ACTThe abertis Group provides its services in the area of infrastructuremanagement serving mobility and communications. It operates in thesectors of motorways, telecommunication infrastructure and airports.As indicated below, in 2011 the Group decided to discontinue the car parksand logistics facilities sectors, the sale of which culminated on 26 October2011.Significant eventsWith the aim of strengthening the growth of the five sectors in which theGroup had been operating, and once the General Meeting of Shareholders inJune 2011 had ratified the agreement reached by the Board of Directors,abertis began the reorganisation of its businesses, grouping them aroundtwo companies: Abertis Infraestructuras, S.A., comprising the operatingsectors of motorways, telecommunications and airports, and SabaInfraestructuras, S.A. comprising the car parks and logistics facilitiesbusinesses.To this end, Saba Infraestructuras, S.A. was provided with the car parksand logistics facilities businesses through the non-monetary contribution ofthe shares are owned by Abertis Infraestructuras, S.A. in SabaAparcamientos, S.A. and Abertis Logística, S.A. by means of a capitalincrease of Euros 399 million, equivalent to €0.54 per share, offering theshareholders of abertis the possibility of holding part of the capital of SabaInfraestructuras, S.A. by means of the payment of an interim dividend forthe 2011 profits of Euro 0.67 per share, with the shareholders of abertisable to choose between receiving it i) in cash or ii) in shares of SabaInfraestructuras, S.A. (at the rate of one share of this company for oneshare of abertis) at the aforementioned valuation of Euro 0.54 per shareplus an additional cash sum of Euro 0.13 per share. For the payment of thisdividend, abertis held 78.06% of Saba Infraestructuras, S.A. 164
  • Finally, on 26 October 2011, and in accordance with the share purchaseagreement which abertis held with Criteria CaixaHolding, S.A.U. (and otherthird parties), abertis sold all of its shareholding in Saba Infraestructuras,S.A. (78.06%) for Euros 312 million (equivalent to a price of Euro 0.54 pershare, an identical valuation to that offered to abertis shareholders in theaforementioned dividend payment).Furthermore, In 2011 the Group has continued its activities in theframework set by the major strategic lines for the last few years (growth,profitability, sustainability and services) opting for selective growth in thecurrent economic environment, with the following noteworthy events: In the motorways sector, in June 2011, the consortium in which abertis has a 45% participation was selected by the Government of Rico as “preferred bidder” for managing the 87 km of the PR-22 and PR-5 motorways for a period of 40 years. This agreement was materialised at the end of September 2011 with the incorporation of the company Autopistas Metropolitanas de Puerto Rico LLC (metropistas), which is in charge of operating the aforementioned concessions. Similarly, in 2011the sector continues with the ongoing extension of its capacity, which has meant for acesa, in the framework of the extension project of the AP-7 in Girona, the tender and start of construction work of the Fornells and Sant Gregori links, as well as the continuation of the works of extending the Vilademuls-Figueres Sur and Figueres Sur-La Jonquera stretches (with a length of 17.3 km and 22.3 km respectively) which are expected to be finished 2012. In addition, in the framework of the extension project of the AP-7 motorway in Tarragona and as a result of the collaboration between the operators acesa and aumar, in April 2011 a new closed toll system was activated between Martorell and Vila-seca/Salou which involved removing the existing toll stations in the aforementioned motorway stretch. Furthermore, the sanef Group has begun investments relating to the agreement signed with the French government in 2010 (“Paquet Vert”) to implement a series of upgrades, mainly environmental, in its motorway network, which are expected to be completed at the start of 2013.
  • At any event, the sector continues with the research and introductionof the practical upgrades which ensure provision of a qualitydifferentiated service to customers and users in aspects such asdynamic tolling, signposting or roadworthiness, which contributeconsiderably to improving travel speed and safety, or other aspects,including the agreement signed between abertis and ASF to allowuse of the French electronic toll services in the La Jonquera-Barcelonastretch of the AP-7 .Finally, it is important to point out that in January 2011 abertiscompleted the sale of its 6.68% share in the capital of Atlantia S.p.A.for Euros 626 million, with abertis now holding no stake whatsoeverin the share capital of Atlantia.In the telecommunications infrastructure sector, abertis telecomcontinues with research and introduction of technical upgrades bothin the provision of digital terrestrial television in Spain, and in thedistribution of audio-visual content by Internet and mobile networks(television by mobile phone etc), and in providingradiocommunication services for public security and emergencynetworks, and at the same time it continues, through its stake inHispasat, working on extending satellite capacity.As indicated in Note 30 in the consolidated annual report, in January2012 abertis telecom completed the sale of 35,218,237 shares inEutelsat (representing 16% of the share capital) for Euros 981million. Following this operation, abertis telecom still maintains a15.35% stake in the share capital of Eutelsat.In the airport sector abertis airports has maintained the policy ofongoing improvement of the facilities in areas such as theoptimization of security measures and the expansion andimprovement of commercial services for passengers.
  • Activity and resultsStill affected by the negative economic environment of preceding years,2011 was affected by the economic slowdown which has had a particularimpact on the motorway business in Spain (with a smaller fall in the volumeof heavy vehicles), although French and Chilean motorways have recordedincreases in activity over the year (with a greater increase in heavy vehiclesin the case of Chilean motorways), as has occurred in the airport operationssegment. In the telecommunications infrastructure segment, the impact ofthe analogue switch off, which was completed in April 2010, has beentotally offset by the provision of digital terrestrial television services, as wellas the increase in satellite activity.Operating income totalled Euros 3,915 million, virtually without changecompared with the previous year (-0.05%), with performance clearlyinfluenced by the impact of the non-recurring work relating to theextensions of coverage of digital terrestrial television, which was mainlycarried out over the first half of 2010.In the case of motorways, which continue to be the main activity sector forthe contribution to consolidated income, the average daily intensity of traffic(the main indicator for measuring activity) for the operators as a whole fellby 1.3% to 22,561 vehicles (basically due to the negative evolution oftraffic on motorways in Spain), although this affect on the Groups incomewas offset, without considering the non-recurring impact indicated above inthe telecommunications segment, mainly due to the review of the averagetariffs in the motorway operators, as well as the positive performance of therecurring business of the telecommunications sector and the positiveperformance of airports.Despite the slight fall in income, gross operating profit rose 1.9% due to thefall in operating expenses for non-recurring work in the first half of 2010relating to the extensions of coverage of digital terrestrial television, as aresult of the impact of the measures to improve efficiency and optimiseoperating costs, which the Group continues to emphasise this year.The financial expense associated with the Groups borrowings has fallen,mainly as a consequence of the fall in the Groups borrowings, offset by thenegative impact of the floating-rate debt (16% of the total amount of debtat 31 December 2011) arising from the increase in the benchmark interestrate (mainly the Euribor) over most of the year (it fell slightly in the lastquarter). Despite this, the Groups total financial expenses increased mainlyas a result of the impact of negative exchange differences and the impact ofthe debt refinancing operations carried out in the period.
  • Furthermore, the favourable evolution of the contribution of Eutelsat andCoviandes, both consolidated by equity accounting, has led to a greatextent to the increase of this account against the 2010 year end.It should also be noted that there has also been a decrease in the corporateincome tax rate in the United Kingdom as from 2011 from 27% to 26% andfrom 26% to 25% as from April 2012, and other non-recurrent tax effectsthat have fostered a decrease in this tax expense in spite of the increase intaxable profit.With these considerations and the impact arising from the corporatereorganisation of the car parks and logistics facilities businesses and theirsubsequent disposal (as well as the net result of their operations) and theaforementioned disinvestment carried out in Atlantia S.p.A (“Profit (loss)from discontinued operations”), the consolidated profit for the yearattributable to shareholders totalled Euros 720,094 thousand, an increase of8.8% on the same period of the previous year.With regard to the relative weight of the different business units on income,the motorway sector accounted for 79% of the total, thetelecommunications infrastructures sector accounted for 13% and airportsaccounted for 7%. These percentages are in line with the 2010 year-end.Balance SheetTotal assets at 31 December 2011 stood at Euros 22,749 million, a fall of10% compared with year end 2010. This was basically due to the impact ofthe disposal in January of the 6.68% share of the capital of Atlantia S.p.A.,and the car parks and logistics facilities operating segments at the end ofOctober.Of total assets, around 60% relates to PPE and other intangible assets(basically concessions) in line with the nature of the Group’s businessesrelating to infrastructure management. This percentage is in line with lastyear.Total investment in the motorways, telecommunications and airportsoperating segments in 2011 stood at Euros 676 million correspondingmainly to investment in expansion (76% of the total), mainly used forextending motorway capacity, as well as the awarding in September 2011of the concession for managing the PR-22 and PR-5 motorways in PuertoRico.
  • Consolidated net equity totalled Euros 4,416 million, 19.0% lower than atyear-end 2010. It was mainly affected by the lower measurement recordedfor the stake in Brisa (Euros -234 million), as well as the impact of theextraordinary 2011 interim dividend and the return of contributions toshareholders approved by the General Shareholders Meeting in June 2011(Euros -791 million), the supplementary 2010 dividend (Euros -222 million)and the 2011 interim dividend (Euros -233 million).Gross financial debt at 31 December 2011 (without including the debts withcompanies recorded using the equity method or the interest for loans andbonds) totals Euros 14,273 million and represents 323% of shareholdersequity and 63% shareholders equity and liabilities. These percentages arehigher than those at year-end 2010 as result of the aforementionedreduction in equity and assets. Similarly, following a policy to minimiseexposure to financial risks, at year-end 2011 and in line with 2010, asignificant part of the debt (84%) is at a fixed rate of fixed by means ofhedges.The aforementioned Gross financial debt is 5.7% lower than at year-end2010. It was mainly affected by the sale of the 6.68% shareholding in thecapital of Atlantia S.p.A. (Euros -626 million), and the car parks andlogistics facilities segments in October.Because of the nature of its investment activity, abertis is exposed todifferent financial risks: exchange rate risk, credit risk, liquidity risk andcash flow interest rate risk. The overall risk management program of theGroup takes into account the uncertainty of the financial markets and triesto minimise the potentially adverse effects on global profitability of theGroup as a whole basically through the setting of financing and hedgingpolicies depending in line with each business type.In practice this is continuing to translate into a health financial structure,with a high average debt maturity and a high percentage of debt at fixedrates or fixed rates that minimise to a great extent the possible effect oftensions in the credit market.The major generation of cash flows of most of the main businesses ofabertis allows it to maintain a financial balance that makes it possible tomake new investments in upgrading the infrastructures it manages andcontinue its policy, within the current economic and financial environment,of selective investments that it has carried out in recent years without theneed for additional capital contributions from shareholders.
  • The Group is also exposed to a greater or lesser extent to some businessrisks (customer demand, concession expiry, regulatory environment,competition, country risk, customer concentration, initial project launches)as well as operational risk (operations, technology, fraud and integrity).abertis minimises its exposure to these risks through control systems(based on a combination of strategic and operational measures) andongoing adaptation of its policies and procedures to the growing size,complexity and geographic diversification of the Group. Please note that thevery nature of a large number of its businesses (concessions under long-term contracts, clearly restricted scenarios and pre-set conditions)constitute in itself a factor that minimises a large part of the business risksit faces.Shareholder returnAs in prior years, abertis has maintained its policy of shareholder returnthat combines the dividend pay out with bonus share issues of one share forevery 20 shares held.Accordingly, the General Shareholders Meeting held on 21 June 2011agreed the bonus share issue (carried out in the third quarter of 2011) andthe payment, inter alia, of a supplementary dividend corresponding to the2010 profit of Euro 0.30 gross per share, which was made effective at theend of June 2011.In addition, the aforementioned General Shareholders Meeting agreed topay, charging the Share Premium account, Euros 0.40 per share as a returnof the contribution to shareholders, and within the framework of theaforementioned reorganisation of the car parks and logistics facilitiesbusinesses, the payment of an extraordinary interim dividend for 2011profits of Euros 0.67 per share. The shareholders of abertis could choose toreceive the last dividend i) in cash or ii) in shares of Saba Infraestructuras,S.A. (at a rate of 1 share of this company for 1 share of abertis) at avaluation of Euros 0.54 per share plus an additional cash amount of Euro0.13 per share . These dividends were paid at the end of July 2011.The Board of Directors of abertis adopted a resolution to propose to theGeneral Meeting of Shareholders the distribution of a final dividend of Euros0.36 gross per share against 2011 net income.
  • The maximum total dividend charged to 2011 profit/loss will therefore beEuros 1,007.3 million, considering the interim dividend already paid, andrepresents an increase of 127% of the total dividend paid charged to theprofit/loss for the previous year (15.5% without taking into account theimpact of the extraordinary interim dividend of Euros 495.1 million, whichhas already been paid).OutlookThe next year is expected to see stabilisation in the overall motorwaysbusiness, together with an increase in tariffs favoured by 2011 inflation.Similarly, there is expected to be an increase in the level of activity in theairport sector and positive performance of income in thetelecommunications segment favoured by greater terrestrial and satelliteactivity. At any event, it is expected that the positive performance of thedifferent businesses together with the ongoing effort in improving efficiencyand reducing costs will allow growth of income, gross operating profit andprofit attributable to the shareholders of the company.Although there is uncertainty about the economic environment (especiallyrelating to general levels of debt, sources and cost of funding andinvestment opportunities) and although since last year there has been aslowdown in the Groups growth and diversification (accompanied by theaforementioned business reorganisation carried out the year), we cannotrule out the analysis of investment opportunities and growth providing theymeet the strict safety and profitability requirements which abertis requiresfrom its investment portfolio, paying special attention to opportunities in thearea of international motorways (as indicated above, in September 2011abertis, as part of a consortium, was awarded the management of the PR-22 and PR-5 motorways in Puerto Rico).The balance of all investments, both in terms of maturity and profitabilityand geographic and sectorial diversification, and maintaining or improvingthe position of the different business units, must contribute to a sustainedpositive contribution from all the units in order to continue our shareholderreturn policy.In addition, there is clear uncertainty about the evolution of interest rates(with an upward trend over most of the year, which seems to have changedin the last quarter), although there are unlikely to show positivedevelopment. Therefore, the Groups aforementioned hedging policy takeson greater importance.
  • No new risks and uncertainties are expected beyond those indicated aboverelating to the business itself or those indicated in the 2011 consolidatedannual accounts. At any event, the Group continues and will continuemaking an effort to optimise its management so as to have greater controlover operating costs and investments, bearing in mind the new scenarioand economic outlook for 2012.Treasury sharesUnder the authorisation approved by the Shareholders’ Meeting, at the yearend the Company holds 29,885,288 treasury shares (3.85% of sharecapital). The use of these Treasury shares has not been decided and willdepend on the resolutions which the Groups governing bodies may take inthe future.Other mattersIt is Group policy to pay maximum attention to environmental protectionand conservation, and each investee company adopts the measuresnecessary to minimise the environmental impact of the infrastructures thatthey manage in order that they blend in as much as possible with theirsurroundings.Subsequent eventsThere have been no post-balance sheet events in addition to thosementioned in Note 30 to the consolidated annual accounts.

  • D- RISK MANAGEMENT SYSTEMSD.1 General description of the company and/or group risk policy, detailing and evaluatingthe risks covered by the systems and proof of suitability of such systems for the profile ofeach type of risk. The risk management system of Abertis is based on a set of strategic and operative actions aimed at complying with the overall risk policies necessary to achieve the aims adopted by the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors, as the highest decision-making and representative body of the company is responsible for defining the global strategic management and risk profile of Abertis Group. The Corporation establishes the levels of risk exposure of the group, on the basis of which it sets the action limits for the different companies. Activities with risk levels higher than those established must have the prior approval from the Corporation. Abertis has an overall risk management model that identifies, classifies, evaluates, manages, transfers and monitors the most relevant risks of its different business and corporate units and of the corporation and ensures that the level of risk exposure assumed by Abertis is consistent with the objective risk profile. Furthermore, the model defines the persons responsible for management, supervision and determination of limits for each risk category. Abertis’ global risk management model includes the following risk categories: 1. Business risks This category includes risks related to the market and the environment in which the Group operates and which have a special impact on strategic objectives: Concession maturity A major part of the business is carried out through time-limited concessions, which entails the need to generate additional sources of cash flows in the medium term in order to ensure the continuity of the Group. Certain costs must also be managed taking into account the duration of the concession (personnel, revertible investments, etc.). Regulatory risks The companies of the group must comply with both specific and general standards (accounting, environmental, employment, etc.). The Abertis Group is sensitive to any legislative amendments or developments since it is a listed company, and because it trades in sectors that are specifically regulated and because a large part of its business is carried out as a public concession. Competition The creation of alternative infrastructures, the development of new urban areas or of new industrial poles, the changes in the mobility trends or the entry of new competitors in some business sectors, can directly impact the development of the business.
  • TechnologyThe appearance of new technologies and standards can involve the obsolescence of equipment,the need for new investments in assets and RD, as well as the transformation of operatingprocesses in certain Group businesses.Customer demandThe evolution of the economy has a significant influence on the different group businesses.Customer concentrationIn certain businesses the negotiating power of customers is especially high as a result of theirspecific weight compared to total turnover.Degree of controlRisk of a lack of strategic alignment in the evolution and profits of the companies not controlledby the Group.Ramp upRisks in the initial phase, risks of overruns of time and costs of projects that the Group maycarry out, as well as the risk of not achieving the estimated revenue levels.Country riskAs a consequence of the nature of a significant part of the investments of the Group (long-termconcessionary contracts), the investments of the Abertis Group are located in countries with ahigh degree of legal security and stability, although the particular situation of some countriescould, at some time, affect the evolution of the business.2. Financial risksLoss in value or earnings due to adverse movements in financial variables and the inability ofthe company to meet its commitments or realize its assets.Classified into interest rate / exchange rate, market, counter-party and trade receivable risks.Due to indebtedness of the Abertis Group, as a result of the expansion in the last few years,there is exposure to fluctuations in interest rates. There is also exposure to fluctuations inexchange rates due to investments in foreign currency, bond issues and loans in foreigncurrencies.Abertis has corporate financial risk management policy that sets the acceptable levels offinancial risk determining the hedging policies and avoiding speculative operations. It alsoanalyses its exposure to forecast cash flows and the value of company assets and liabilities tofluctuations in the interest rate curves and exchange rates in the market.The actions taken by Abertis in regards to its financial structure (refinancing policies, etc.)contribute to the maintenance of a sound structure and minimize to a great extent the effectsarising from market tensions.Furthermore, the evolution of inflation has a special impact on the Group given that the ratesof a major part of the businesses are indexed to prices.
  • 3. Operational risk These risks include potential loss from the inadequacy of processes of key Group operations, as well as the staffing, equipment and systems that support them. These risks are classified under: Operations (labour, tax, infrastructure obsolescence, security, environment, business discontinuity, dependence on suppliers and service quality), organization, financial information (availability, integrity, confidentiality and relevance), fraud and compliance.

Abertis performs continuous supervision and analysis of the insurable risks in the Group and has implemented a Corporate International Program of insurance that seeks to achieve, in favourable conditions for taking advantage of synergies and volume, a level of cover appropriate to the risk policies and levels established by the Directors. The Abertis Group also has systems that cover risks from different activities (fraud management policies, specific units allocated to controlling operational fraud, analysis of sensitivities to variations in the many business aggregates, etc.).D.2 Indicate whether during the year under review any of the different types of risks(operational, technological, financial, legal, reputational or tax) have affected the companyand/or its group: YES If so, indicate the circumstances causing them and if the control systems set up have worked.

Thus, the corporation establishes standards, procedures and controls in order to avoid irregularities or, should they occur, to remedy them as soon as possible. Fundamental mechanisms ensuring compliance with the different regulations affecting the group companies are based on the controls and activities carried out by the following corporate areas: · The Secretariat is in charge of the formal and material legality of the actions of the governing bodies of the Group by verifying their compliance with the Articles of Association, with the rules laid down by the regulatory bodies and by ensuring the compliance with the principles and criteria of good governance. · Legal Advisory Office: its purpose is to ensure overall observance of the legal requirements affecting the group, and to do so, establishes the legal guidelines for the group companies and brings the organizational structure into line with the regulatory environment, establishing compliance with laws and ethical standards. · Tax planning: ensures global observance of the group’s tax requirements, establishing compliance with laws and positioning the group when required. · Internal Audit: ensures the observance of internal procedures and their adaptation to the regulatory requirements through its examinations.

In accordance with Article 13 of the Articles of Association and Article 8 of the Regulations of the General Meeting of Shareholders, 1. Every shareholder who is entitled to attend may appoint another person to stand as proxy, who need not be a shareholder. Each shareholder may only have one proxy at a Shareholders’ Meeting. The form of proxy must be in writing signed by the shareholder or in electronic format with an electronic signature that duly guarantees the identity of the writer, and must be for a specific General Meeting, without prejudice to the provisions of Article 187 of the Spanish Public Limited Companies Act concerning family proxies. The proxy must in all cases hold the necessary attendance card. Attendance by the shareholder in person at the General Meeting shall revoke the proxy. 2. If the proxy has been obtained by public request, the proxy document must contain or have attached to it the agenda, the request for voting instructions and the way in which the proxy will vote if no specific voting instructions have been given. A public request for proxies shall be considered to have been made when one person holds proxies for more than three shareholders.
  • If no voting instructions have been given in respect of the proposed resolutions included in the agenda, the proxy shall be considered to vote in favour of the proposals submitted by the Board of Directors. If no instructions have been given on account of matters not having been included on the agenda, the proxy shall vote in the manner he considers most appropriate in the interests of the Company and of the represented shareholder. If the shareholders represented have given voting instructions, the proxy may vote differently when circumstances arise that were not known at the time of sending the voting instructions and there is a risk that the interests of the represented shareholder may be adversely affected. In this case, the proxy shall immediately inform the represented shareholder, explaining the reasons for the vote, either in writing or by e-mail. 3. The provisions of the preceding section shall not apply when the proxy is the spouse, ascendant or descendant of the shareholder, or when the proxy holds general powers of attorney, conferred in a public instrument, to administer the shareholder’s assets located in Spain. 4. Should the directors of the Company, or another person, have made a public request for proxies, a director who holds a proxy may not exercise the voting rights attached to the represented shares with respect to those items on the agenda with which he has a conflict of interests, and in all cases with respect to the following resolutions: a) His appointment or the ratification of his appointment as director; b) His removal, separation or resignation as director; c) Any action for company liability brought against him; d) The approval or ratification of operations by the Company with the director in question, with companies controlled or represented by him or with persons acting on his behalf.E.11 Indicate whether the company is aware of the policies of institutional investors takingpart or not in the company’s decisions: NOE.12 Indicate the address and access to the content of corporate governance on its website.

The interest of the Company, understood as maximising continuously thecompany’s economic value, should guide the Board.The Board should ensure that in its relationships with its stakeholders that the company abideby all laws and regulations, observe its obligations and contracts in good faith, respect thecustoms and best practices of sectors and territories where the activity takes place, andobserve the additional principles of social responsibility accepted voluntarily. Complied with8. The Board should undertake, as its main purpose, to approve the company’s strategy andorganization necessary to put them into practice and supervise and ensure that theManagement team complies with the goals set out and respects the company’s purposes andinterests. And, to do so, the Board should reserve for itself the power to approve the following: a) The Company’s general policies and strategies and in particular: i) The strategic or business plan, together with the management goals and annual budget; ii) Investment and financing policy; iii) The definition of the structure of the companies’ group; iv) The corporate governance policy; v) Corporate social responsibility policy; vi) Senior management remuneration and Performance evaluation policy; vii) Risk control and management policy and the periodical follow-up of the internal systems of information and control. viii) Dividends policy.

Those carried out by virtue of contracts whose terms are standard and are applied massively to a large number of customers; 2. Those made at prices or tariffs generally established by those acting as providers of the relevant goods or services; 3. Amounts not exceeding 1% of the company’s annual income. It is recommended the Board approve the related operations subject to receiving a favourable report from the Audit Committee or, when applicable, from any other body charged with that function. When deciding, the directors affected, who can neither act as such nor delegate their vote, should leave the meeting room while the Board is deliberating and voting. It is recommended the competencies here granted to the Board should not be delegable, except those under subsections b) and c), which can be adopted for reasons of urgency by the Executive Committee and later ratified by the Board in full. See sections: C.1 and C.6 Complied with9. It is recommended that the Board be of an appropriate size in order to allow for efficiencyand facilitate participation. It is advisable that the number of members not be lower than fiveor greater than fifteen. See section: B.1.1 Explain The functioning of the Board is effective and participatory. There are now 20 members. The size of the Board is the result of the merger of Acesa Infraestructuras, S.A. and Aurea Concesiones de Infraestructuras, S.A., initially with 12 members from Acesa, seven from Aurea and one executive officer with the maximum executive powers.10. Non independent or proprietary external directors and independent directors shouldrepresent a large majority in the Board and the number of executive directors should be theminimum necessary, taking into account the complexity of the company group and thepercentage of participation of executive directors in the company’s capital.See sections: A.2, A.3, B.1.3 and B.1.14.

  • 11. If there is an external director who is neither proprietary nor independent, the companyshould explain such circumstance and the links of that director with the company, themanagers or the shareholders.See section: B.1.3 Complied with12. Among the external directors, the ratio between the number of proprietary or non-independent directors and independent directors should reflect the existing ratio between theshare capital represented by proprietary or non-independent directors and the rest of the sharecapital. This criterion of strict proportionality may be lessened by giving more weight to non- independent directors in proportion to the total percentage of capital they represent in the following cases: 1. In highly capitalized companies in which there are almost no interests considered significant by law although there are shareholders with share packages of high absolute value. 2. Companies with a plurality of shareholders represented on the Board and with no links between them. See sections: B.1.3, A.2 and A.3 Complied with13. The number of independent directors should be less than a third of the total number ofdirectors.See sections: B.1.3 Explain See recommendation number 9.14. The nature of each director should be explained by the Board before the General Meetingof Shareholders in charge of appointing him or ratifying his appointment. Such appointmentshould be confirmed, and as the case may be, revised yearly in the Annual corporategovernance report, subject to verification of the Appointments Committee. The report shouldalso explain why proprietary or non-independent directors proposed by shareholders holdingless than 5% of capital have been appointed. It should also explain why formal proposals toappoint directors have been turned down when coming from shareholders holding the same ormore shares than those whose proposals for appointing non-independent directors have beenaccepted.See sections: B.1.3 and B.1.4 Complied with15. If the number of women directors is very low or nil, the Board should explain the reasonsand initiatives adopted to correct such situation. In particular, the Appointments Committeeshould take special care when filling the new vacancies and see to the following: a) The selection proceedings are not implicitly biased, hindering the appointment of women directors;
  • b) The company should deliberately search and include in the potential candidates, women fulfilling the professional profile required.See sections: B.1.2, B.1.27 and B.2.3. Explain The Board is willing to improve the presence of women directors in the Board. To do so, the Appointments Committee places special care in meeting that goal when selecting possible candidates in the event of renewals at the Board. Please note that the 3rd Vice-Chairmanship corresponds to the representative of G3T, S.L. Ms. Carmen Godia Bull.16. The Chairman, as the person in charge of the Board’s proper functioning, should ensurethat the Directors receive sufficient information prior to the meetings. He should stimulatedebate and the active participation of directors during the Board meetings, defend theirfreedom to take positions and speak. He should organize and coordinate with the relevantCommittee Chairmen the periodical evaluation of the Board and, when applicable, theevaluation of the Chief Executive Officer or Chief Executive.See sections: B.1 42 Complied with17.
