Founded in 2007, HISI S.r.l. is a limited liability company owned by two Funds managed/advised by Ardian (formerly AXA Private Equity):
- 37,79% AXA Infrastructure Investissement SAS
- 62,21% Fininfra SA
Ardian manages/advises € 17 bn in a comprehensive range of infrastructure assets, focusing on energy, transport and other public infrastructures (health and environment).
HISI cooperates with private companies to increase the project value, relying on a highly skilled partner in implementation and management of public infrastructure projects.
By transferring its shares of an SPV to HISI, private companies are able to reduce the capital exposure and to deconsolidate the SPV from balance sheet.
Currently, HISI is negotiating with several Concessionaires in Italy for the acquisition of stakes in the SPVs and in the connected O&M Management Companies.
HISI invests in SPVs and in the directly connected O&M Management Companies created for the execution of the Concession Service; the latter through a fully owned subsidiary, HISI Management S.r.l.
HISI could be seen as:
- Financial vehicle for long term investments in special purpose entities;
- Developer in Project Financing initiatives;
- Manager and coordinator of the O&M services.
