Aleatica’s Board of Directors is made up of eight proprietary members and an alternate member of the equity directors and is in charge of managing its business.
The directors remain in office for 1 year and can be reelected annually. The appointment of the members of the Board of Directors corresponds to the Assembly of Shareholders. The Board of Directors meets at least once a quarter in ordinary session.
In accordance with the law, at least 25% of the directors must be independent according to the definition assigned to said term in the Securities Market Law.
Aleatica’s bylaws provide for the appointment of alternate directors to cover the absences of the proprietary directors at the Board meetings.
Aleatica has positioned itself as a relevant transport infrastructure operator in the industry within the metropolitan area of Mexico City, both due to the number of concessions assigned and the number of highways managed.
The company operates infrastructure that covers the basic transportation needs of the national population through seven highways strategically located in Mexico City, the State of Mexico and the State of Puebla, as well as the Toluca International Airport.
Aleática passed from OHL to the Australian investor IFM in 2018.
