Leader Asset Management with Gazprombank support forms a pool of partners to bid in public tenders for fee-based highway projects in Russia

Investment Company “Leader”, closed joint-stock company, Gazprombank (open joint-stock company), Stroygasconsalting, a limited liability company, BRISA AUTO-ESTRADAS DE PORTUGAL, S.A., a company with limited liability (Portugal), ALPINE Bau GmbH (Austria), FCC Construccion, S.A. (Spain) signed the Concession Pre Bid Agreement on mutual participation in the Russian Federal Ministry of Transport tenders for the financing, design, construction, operation and maintenance under concession of the section from 15 km to 58 km of the highway between Moscow and Saint-Petersburg (the “MoscowSaint-Petersburg Tender”) and highway “New Entrance to Moscow Ring Highway from the Federal Highway M-1 “Belarus” Moscow – Minsk”.

“Leader” Asset Management, having non-governmental pension fund GAZFOND (number one among Russian pension funds) and other top non-governmental pension funds among its clients, took the initiative for this agreement.

According to the signed Pre Bid Agreement for the participation in the tenders, two Russian companies will be founded. They will bid for the corresponding tenders. The Russian party will have the leading role in these companies. Foreign partners’ participation in the projects will allow Russian companies get hold of modern technologies and foreign experience in the field of the financing construction, renovation and operation of fee-based highways.

The pool of partners is well-balanced: it combines, on the one hand, companies possessing considerable experience in construction and operation of highways in Russia and abroad and, on the other hand, top financial institutions able to provide necessary financing for realization of infrastructure projects of such a great scale.

If the pool of partners wins the tenders and is awarded concession contracts, successful implementation of the projects will lay the needed basis for forming of the first national concessionaire capable of taking part in similar projects both in Russia and abroad.

Participants of the Consortium are convinced that public-private partnership models implemented through concession mechanism will develop dynamically in Russia within the next years.
