CDP Equity investment and objective
The transaction, in line with CDP Equity’s institutional mission, aims to encourage the growth of the Italian construction sector through “Progetto Italia”, the project for the consolidation of the construction sector promoted by Webuild. The project has a systemic relevance, as it contributes to the creation of a domestic player, able to compete on the international markets. This will allow other Italian corporates belonging to the construction sector to avail themselves of Webuild’s activities also for their projects abroad.
Furthermore, CDP Equity’s participation in Webuild aims to support the implementation of infrastructure projects, strategic to the country.
