The Carlyle Group Adds Cornerstone To Global Natural Resources Investing Platform

Mr. Hersh continued, “This relationship has tremendous long term benefits. With this transaction, we have facilitated the sale of Barclays’ minority interest in our firm to a strategic partner, and carefully structured the contingent future payouts to favor NGP’s next generation of leaders, thereby providing substantial incentives for everyone to achieve high levels of performance over very long periods of time. Importantly, we did this all without disrupting in any way our current operations or governance structure.”

Carlyle Chairman and Co-Founder Daniel A. D’Aniello, said, “NGP has a proven team, a strong 24-year track record of performance across cycles and is a great cultural match. Our respective teams complement each other in so many ways, positioning both NGP and Carlyle to deliver even better outcomes for our investors.”

Established in 1988 by Ken Hersh and his partners, NGP Energy Capital Management has successfully completed 220 transactions, resulting in cumulative invested capital of $6.6 billion with total enterprise value of $36.1 billion across a range of energy and natural resource assets, including oil & gas resources, oilfield services, pipelines and processing. Other investment mandates include: food, agriculture, water resources and services, energy efficiency, power tech and alternative energy. The firm’s 70 professionals in five offices manage $12.1 billion across eight funds.

NGP will serve as the cornerstone of Carlyle’s growing natural resources investing platform, which includes energy mezzanine financing, energy infrastructure & power generation (Cogentrix), and commodities (Vermillion).

Among many others, certain of NGP’s current and recent former investments in companies that are now publicly-traded include Energy Transfer Equity, Energy Transfer Partners, Eagle Rock Energy, Memorial Production Partners and Resolute Energy Corporation.

Carlyle Group Conference Call

Carlyle will host a conference call with the investor community today, December 20, 2012, at 10:00 a.m. EST to discuss the NGP transaction. Immediately following the prepared remarks, there will be a Question and Answer session for analysts and investors. Presentation materials will be available on the investor relations section of The Carlyle Group web site at prior to the call.
