PARIS (Reuters) - The French government has not made a decision on whether to privatise Paris airport operator ADP (ADP.PA), and was considering “many options on table,” a government source said on Monday.
“The decision has not been taken,” the government source said, adding that the state was proceeding cautiously.
ADP, in which the French state has a 50.6 percent stake, has been cited among assets to be sold in a privatisation programme aimed at generating 10 billion euros (£8.81 billion) under President Emmanuel Macron.
French business daily Les Echos reported on Sunday that the government is considering awarding a long-term concession to Paris airport operator ADP because of land ownership issues, prior to a possible sale of the controlling stake.
