MADRID, April 26 Spanish builder OHL
estimates a pretax capital gain of 1.2 billion euros ($1.6
billion) from the sale of toll road assets in Brazil and Chile
to motorway firm Abertis, management said on a
conference call on Thursday.
OHL and Abertis struck a deal late Tuesday that will give
the builder at least 10 percent of the motorway firm in exchange
for the Latin American assets.
An OHL director also said there may be opportunities to
increase the builder's long-term construction portfolio thanks
to the deal with Abertis.
