SNCF and RATP to sell Systra

Systra stakesSNCF and RATP have entered into exclusive negotiations with Latour Capital and Fimalac to sell Systra stakes. Through this operation, the new shareholders would hold 60% of Systra stakes while the SNCF and RATP groups will each retain a 20% stake in Systra’s capital.

This operation is fully in line with Systra’s ambition to strengthen its position as a leader in public transport and sustainable mobility in a global market with strong growth potential. With a presence in 80 countries, Systra intends to accelerate its growth strategy with the support of the new shareholders, especially through a proactive acquisition policy in high-potential geographical areas.

“The participation of Latour Capital and Fimalac in Systra’s capital would be very good news for the group. It would mark a new stage in the growth trajectory of Systra, which has been putting its expertise at the service of populations and regions for over 65 years. For several years we have been committed to a vigorous development plan in the very dynamic transport engineering market. The support of the new shareholders, alongside our historic shareholders SNCF and RATP, would enable us to move forward more quickly and more securely to make Systra an undisputed world champion in its category,” Pierre Verzat, the CEO of Systra said.

The completion of the transaction remains subject to the information and consultation procedure with employee representative bodies and the approval of the various regulatory authorities. In addition, it will give rise to a referral to the ‘Shareholdings and Transfers Commission’.

With 10,700 employees worldwide, Systra’s mission is to make travel more fluid throughout the world in order to bring populations closer together. Signature team for transport solutions, Systra supports its partners and clients throughout the lifecycle of their projects, as demonstrated by its involvement in the Grand Paris Express, the High Speed 2 project in the UK.
