Holding companies are quite common in the infrastructure sector since concessions often require a separate entity to be incorporated. That gives rise to the ‘CIC risk’, in the form of approval requirements, leverage limits and investment restrictions – which tends to make investors apprehensive. However, with careful structuring, much of that risk can be mitigated, and hold cos may even be able to walk away from the CIC classification altogether.
