(“OHLA”) in reaching commercial close on the sale of its 25% equity interest in Centre Hospitalier de I’Université de Montréal (the “Project”) to BBGI Global Infrastructure S.A. (“BBGI”).
The Project involves the design, build, finance, operation and maintenance of a 772-bed healthcare facility in Montréal, Canada under a 30-year public-private partnership concession with the Centre Hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (“CHUM”).

Carmen Lopez, Managing Director & Partner at Rubicon, commented: “We are very pleased to have acted as the exclusive M&A advisor to OHLA in this marquee asset sale. While the past two years have been particularly challenging for the healthcare industry due to the global pandemic, the landmark nature of this essential facility together with the well-structured PPP contract makes this a naturally attractive asset for long-term infrastructure investors. We are delighted to have been part of this achievement and are very grateful to have worked alongside OHLA and BBGI to successfully close this transaction.”
