The consortium successfully placed USD 1.3 Billion (EUR 1.1 bn) worth of long-term tax-exempt private activity bonds (PABs) in the U.S. capital markets in an issuance that was almost seven times oversubscribed.

Rail Project
The concession, signed back in April of this year, represents the first Automated People Mover (APM) project procured through a public-private partnership (PPP) in the United States. It has a total 30-year term and includes the design, construction and long-term operation and maintenance of the new APM system at LAX. The project includes a total of 6 stations along a 3.6 km, elevated dual guideway to connect passengers to and from the central terminal area of LAX with intermodal transportation facilities as well as a new USD 1+ Billion Consolidated Rent-A-Car facility, which is being separately procured and which the ACS Group is also currently bidding. The consortium will be responsible for the delivery of the 44 Bombardier APM vehicles, as well as the construction of a 7,000 sq meter maintenance and storage facility. Early design and construction works have already begun, and construction is anticipated to be completed by early 2023.

ACS Group (grupoacs.com) participates in the project through its subsidiaries ACS Infrastructure Development and HOCHTIEF PPP Solutions, which each have an 18% share in the concessionaire (ACS Group 36%) and 12.5% share in the operations and maintenance joint venture (ACS Group 25%), as well as through Dragados USA and Flatiron Construction, which each have a 20% share in the construction joint venture (ACS Group 40%). The other members of the consortium include Fluor, Balfour Beatty and Bombardier.

Financing Structure
In addition to the USD 1.3 Billion (EUR 1.1 bn) long-term PABs, underwritten by Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Citigroup, and Ramirez & Co., Inc., the financing for the project also includes a USD 269 Million (EUR 228 mn) short-term bank loan provided by a syndicate of five international banks: CIBC, Mizuho Bank, SMBC, the Korea Development Bank, and TD Bank.

The five equity members will also make equity contributions totalling approximately USD 103 Million (EUR 87 mn), which will be injected at the end of the construction period. LAWA will pay a series of payments during construction totalling USD 1.0 Billion (EUR 850 mn) and performance-based availability payments upon completion of construction until the end of the term. The total value of LAWA’s payments during the 30-year term is approximately US 4.9 Billion (EUR 4.0 bn).
