The company chaired by Salvador Alemany presented the best financial offer to acquire 60% of Bamsa, a firm that is bound to manage the 26 parking lots in Barcelona downtown for the next 25 years. The remaining 40% will remain in the hands of the City Council.
Besides, Saba also turned out to score higher than Interparking in technical aspects. Saba also proposed to hand over 100% of the revenues above those foreseen in the bidding, whereas Interparking offered only to hand over 21%.
On signing the contract, the City will receive €100 million, which will be used for the development of social housing blocks.
Over the past months, Saba won a tender process to manage car parks at 50 Adif's railway stations and a bunch of parking lots from Aena, including spaces of the Barcelona-El Prat airport.
