Balfour Beatty, the international infrastructure group, today announces the completion of two disposals from its Infrastructure Investments portfolio for a combined gain on disposal of £25.8 million. This is in line with the Group’s prior expectations for 2023 gains on disposal of £15 – 30 million.
The Group has sold its 49.5% interest in UBB Waste (Gloucester) Holdings Limited, the owner of the energy from waste facility at Javelin Park near Gloucester, to Urbaser Investment Limited, and its 50% interest in the Moretti multifamily housing community in Birmingham, Alabama to Henssler Capital, LLC.
The proceeds from each sale are in excess of the Balfour Beatty Directors’ valuation as of 30 June 2023, consistent with the Group’s strategy of optimising value through the disposal of operational assets, whilst continuing to invest in new asset opportunities. The Group expects no further Infrastructure Investments disposals in 2023.
