The Carlyle Group Adds Cornerstone To Global Natural Resources Investing Platform

Stocks in this article: CG

Global alternative asset manager The Carlyle Group (NASDAQ: CG) today announced it has added significant capability to its growing global natural resources investment platform. Carlyle has acquired a 47.5 percent revenue interest in NGP Energy Capital Management, an Irving, TX-based energy investor with $12.1 billion in assets under management. Carlyle will pay, at closing, $424 million to acquire Barclays Natural Resource Investments’ (“BNRI”) 40 percent stake and 7.5 percent from NGP’s management. The transaction, which will be funded with cash and Carlyle Holdings partnership units, has closed today, December 20.

The transaction also includes: a right to purchase an incremental 7.5 percent revenue interest, which would bring Carlyle’s total revenue interest to 55 percent; 7.5 percent of the carried interest in all future funds; and options to acquire BNRI’s 40 percent interest in the carried interest in NGP’s current flagship fund (NGP Natural Resources X, L.P.) and all future NGP funds. Carlyle has also agreed to pay the sellers additional consideration during 2015 to 2018, contingent upon NGP achieving certain business performance goals.

Carlyle Co-CEO and Chief Investment Officer William E. Conway, Jr. said, “Carlyle is systematically strengthening our global natural resources investing platform and NGP is an important part of this effort. NGP’s investing excellence in the U.S. oil & gas, midstream and oilfield services sector, coupled with our established capabilities in commodities, power generation, mezzanine financing and most recently, refineries, allows us to take full advantage of the energy revolution sweeping America. This partnership enables our respective investors to pursue opportunities across the energy spectrum.”

NGP Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder Kenneth Hersh said, “Our strategic partnership with Carlyle enhances our ability to serve current and future investors. Our current NGP investors will continue to be served tirelessly by NGP’s extensive energy expertise, but they will now also benefit from Carlyle’s global reach, knowledge of debt financing and capital markets, and its extensive network, which complements our own.”
