Enagas and Fluxys agree the sale of the Swedish transmission system operator Swedegas
Enagás and the Belgian company Fluxys have reached an agreement to sell jointly and in equal parts to FS Gas Transport AB, an indirectly wholly owned subsidiary of First State Investments managed European Diversified Infrastructure Fund II (First State), their total stake in the Swedish company Swedegas for an amount of 1,024 million Swedish Krona (SEK) each, around 96 million euros at the current exchange rate. The transaction is subject to compliance with the conditions precedent for this type of deals.

Enagás and Fluxys have accepted the purchase offer submitted by First State, owner of part of the Swedish gas distribution network. The sale of Swedegas would represent a return exceeding 10% for Enagás in terms of IRR after tax. This return is not subject to the evolution of the exchange rate, since Enagás financed 100% of the investment in local currency.

The transaction fits within the strategy announced by Enagás, which considers the possibility of rotation of some assets outside Spain, in order to undertake potential new investments.

Swedegas owns Sweden’s entire high-pressure gas pipeline network and is operator of the Swedish Gas System. It was acquired by Enagás and Fluxys in March 2015, each with a 50% share in the company.

About Enagás

Enagás is the leading company with the largest number of LNG terminals and regasification capacity in Europe. With almost 50 years’ experience and presence in Spain, Mexico, Chile, Peru and Sweden, Enagás is also one of the shareholders of the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) project. The company is certified as a Transmission System Operator (TSO) by the European Union and is an international benchmark in the development and operation of gas networks. It owns more than 12,000 km of gas pipelines, four strategic storages and eight regasification plants. In Spain, Enagás is the Technical Manager of the Gas System and has developed the country's key gas infrastructures, making it a model within Europe.
Listed on the IBEX 35 Spanish stock market, Enagás is present in the main sustainability indexes such as the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI), for ten years in a row. The company is the world leader of its sector, according to the latest DJSI revision.
Enagás is also committed to the fight against climate change and the decabornisation process, as its infrastructure is ready to transport non-electric renewable energy, such as biomethane and hydrogen. The company also supports energy efficiency and sustainable mobility initiatives.
