Infra Park signed an agreement to increase its stake in LAZ Parking from 50% to 90%
In January 2017, Infra Park shareholders announced the launch of a strategic review of various options to support the next development phase of the Group.
Taking into account the outcome of this strategic review, they have decided to initiate a process for the sale / capital opening of the Group, which could result in the entry of one or more new shareholders.
As part of this process, Infra Park entered into an agreement with its partners in LAZ Parking, in which the Group could increase its stake in LAZ Parking from 50% to 90%. This agreement, which will become effective if a change of control of Infra Park occurs before December 31, 2017, will allow the LAZ founders and managing partners to remain shareholders and continue to drive LAZ's strong and profitable growth.
With more than 880,000 spaces in more than 328 cities, Infra Park will further strengthen its position as one of the leaders in a dynamic North American market.
