French civil engineering group Vinci has been selected to buy the Portuguese airport operator ANA, government spokesman Luis Marques Guedes said, in a deal that helps meet the terms of a 2011 international financial bailout for Portugal. The government's decision was unveiled following a cabinet meeting, and was widely expected since Vinci had submitted the highest offer, which according to Dow Jones Newswires was 3.8 billion euros ($5.0 billion).
