- Revenues: €3.56 billion (+16.8%), with growth in both Energy (+23.2%) and Infrastructure (+18.7%)

- Ordinary net investment: €1.08 billion (+123.4%): €661 million for Energy, €143 million for Infrastructure and €113 million for Real Estate development

ACCIONA posted a net profit of €148 million in the first half of 2021 (+565.7%) thanks to a strong performance across all its business divisions. The group’s EBITDA stood at €643 million (+28.7%) reaching pre-pandemic levels.
ACCIONA’s Infrastructure backlog hit a new record (€17.4 billion). ACCIONA Energía posted €1.04 billion in turnover (+23.2%) due to solid growth in international generation revenues. The company’s Real Estate division currently has 935 pre-sold residential units for delivery in the next 24 months.
In addition, ACCIONA Energía’s IPO on July 1st allowed the Group to reduce its estimated pro forma leverage considerably to €4.33 billion (-33.8%). This will increase the investment and growth potential of the company, both in its Energy subsidiary and in the rest of its activities, focused on sustainable infrastructure.
Net debt levels at the end of the first half (€5.79 billion) do not yet reflect the impact of ACCIONA Energía's IPO, which in the third quarter generated an estimated net cash inflow of €1.47 billion, most of which was applied to debt reduction.
ACCIONA's revenues reached €3.56 billion (+16.8%), as a result of growth in the company's main areas, Energy (+23.2%) and Infrastructure (+18.7%).
ACCIONA’s strong performance across all business divisions contributed to the increase in EBITDA to €643 million (+28.7%). Infrastructure EBITDA increased to €126 million (+76.3%) despite the divestment in Spanish concessions sold in the fourth quarter of 2020, and thanks to a considerable EBITDA increase in the Construction business, which rose from €2 million to €57 million.
In the first half of this year, ACCIONA made a net investment of €1.08 billion, of which €661 million (61%) was allocated to Energy, €143 million (13%) to Infrastructure and €113 million (11%) to real estate development.
