The distribution network covered by the agreement, currently operated by Sarda Reti Gas (Fiamma Group) extends over a total of more than 430 kilometers and serves 12,000 customers in the municipalities of Olbia (Basin 5), Valledoria (3), Buddusò (10), Budoni (11), Sedilo (13), Genoni (17), Terralba (19) Simala (20), Arbus (24), Mandas and Siurgus Donigala (26), Santadi (35).
The enterprise value of the transaction (on a debt-free/cash-free basis) is 31.7 million euros.
The Italgas Group is thus extending its presence in most of the 38 basins into which the island is divided and is preparing to convert the acquired networks to natural gas, as part of the broader project to build cutting-edge gas infrastructure to serve the region.
