The Carlyle Group And The Townsend Group To Invest US$200 Million In Strategic Partnership With Shanghai Yupei Group To Develop And Operate Logistics Warehouses In China

Global alternative asset manager The Carlyle Group (NASDAQ:CG) and The Townsend Group today announced a strategic partnership with Shanghai Yupei Group, one of the largest logistics warehouse developers in China, to invest in 17 modern warehouses in China. Carlyle and Townsend will commit approximately US$200 million to acquire equity interests in five warehouses owned by Shanghai Yupei Group and to build 12 new warehouses in the next two years. Shanghai Yupei Group will also invest US$200 million, bringing the total equity commitment of the strategic partnership to US$400 million.

The 17 warehouses will be located in major logistics hubs across China, including the first-tier cities of Shanghai, Beijing, and Guangzhou, and select second-tier cities such as Shenyang, Tianjin, Chongqing, Zhengzhou and Hefei. Upon completion of its investment plan, the strategic platform expects to own and operate a nationwide logistics warehouse network with more than 1.8 million square meters of gross floor area to serve a diverse range of tenants.

Jason Lee, Managing Director and Head of Carlyle Asia Real Estate, said, “Modern logistics is a nascent but fast growing industry in China, supported by strong growth in domestic consumption, exponential expansion of e-commerce and favorable government policies.”

"We are attracted to the logistics warehouse sector in China by its favorable demand and supply fundamentals, and we are excited to work with Shanghai Yupei Group, one of the most experienced and highly regarded domestic logistics warehouse developers in China, to build a nationwide network of high quality warehouses.”

Nicholas Wong, Principal of The Townsend Group said, “Townsend views the growth of modern logistics to be a compelling secular investment theme in China, and around the globe. We are pleased to partner with The Carlyle Group and Shanghai Yupei Group, an experienced logistics developer and operator, to bring this unique investment opportunity to our clients.”
