ACCIONA increases EBITDA by 46.6% to 1.407 billion euro
Date: 28/02/2008 ACCIONA ended 2007 with 935 million euro in EBIT, a 48.4% increase over the previous year. EBITDA totalled 1.407 billioneuro, 46.6% more than in 2006, and the EBITDA margin was 17.7%. Endesa contributed 429 million euro to the total.
