CAI International, Inc. (CAI) (NYSE: CAP), one of the world’s leading lessors of intermodal freight containers, today reported that it has reached conditional agreement with the Supervisory Board and Trustee of the fund Dritte Schroeder Container Beteiligungsgesellschaft mbH & CO. KG and its affiliate (“Dritte Fund”) to acquire for approximately $86 million the container assets owned by the Dritte Fund and currently under management by CAI. The portfolio has approximately 71,000 TEU of standard dry van containers with an average age of approximately 8 years.

We believe that the acquisition of this portfolio is an attractive investment for our company with a cash flow that will positively add to our revenue and earnings in the fourth quarter and beyond.”
