Company Description

Eurotunnel Group, a company listed on the stock exchanges in Paris and London, brings together a group of companies active in the fields of infrastructure management and transport operations. Its various entities share the same attention to quality and customer service, with priority given to safety, a taste for innovation, a sense of social responsibility and commitment to sustainable development. All the Group's investments are intended to generate growth and value. In 2012, Eurotunnel Group generated revenues of almost €1 billion. It employs more than 3,600 staff in the United Kingdom and France. The operation of the cross-Channel Fixed Link, in which two Eurotunnel Group companies are concessionaires until 2086, represents the core business of the Group. Opened in 1994, the Channel Tunnel, the vital link between the United Kingdom and the continent, has been used by more than 300 million passengers. The rail Shuttle transport system carries 2.5 million cars (Le Shuttle) and 1.5 million trucks every year, making it by far the world leader in piggyback transport. High-speed passenger trains and rail freight trains also run through the Tunnel. In 2009, Eurotunnel Group created the Europorte group of companies, which is a particularly dynamic springboard for growth. These subsidiaries are now the third largest rail freight operator (for hauling trains) in the UK and France. They operate and maintain the rail infrastructures of eight major ports in France, delivering logistics services to major European industrial players. Eurotunnel Group is also pursuing its development in the businesses it manages or to which it was appointed by the French government: land development, training in railway professions... Eurotunnel Group owns three ferries and leases the vessels to a ferry operating company, thus increasing the transport offer across the Straits of Dover.

Maple-Brown Abbott is an active, value-oriented, long-term, contrarian manager which seeks to purchase and hold equities only as long as they represent relatively good value, typically investing for a minimum of four years due to the importance of compound capital, income growth and the difficulty in timing markets.The firm applies a value approach at the asset allocation level and at the specific stock selection level. For Australian equity, they employ a bottom-up approach, selecting companies whose share prices are inexpensive compared to certain value criteria, such as price to earnings, dividend yield, price to cash flow and price to net tangible assets. For Asia Pacific equities, they seek to identify companies that are trading at an attractive discount to their true underlying value.For global listed infrastructure securities they seek to provide clients with attractive risk adjusted returns, only investing in those assets with the strongest combination of inflation linkage and low cash flow volatility with a high level of corporate governance and management alignment. They select investments through bottom-up stock selection based on fundamental research and cash flow modelling. They also consider the macroeconomic environment as part of the investment process due to the impact these factors can have on infrastructure asset valuations.
