Investcorp grows US industrial real estate portfolio to $2bn
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 26 - 10 - 2020

Investcorp, a leading global provider and manager of alternative investment products, today announced that it has acquired 32 industrial properties totaling approximately 3.5 million square feet across four major US markets for a total capitalization of over $280 million.
The properties grow Investcorp's wider US industrial real estate portfolios to approximately $2 billion with 22 million square feet comprised of more than 260 buildings.
The latest acquisitions provide Investcorp with a new 96% leased portfolio of Class A and B warehouse, distribution, and flex industrial buildings with a diversified tenant base across a range of industries, including: healthcare, logistics, e-commerce, industrials, telecommunications and food services, among others.
The portfolio includes a brand new, state of the art building leased 100% to a leading multinational Fortune 100 company. The properties comprising the portfolio are primarily located in the major industrial markets of Chicago, Illinois and Cleveland, Ohio, which rank as the first and 11th largest industrial markets in the US, respectively. Additional MSAs comprising the portfolio include Columbus and Cincinnati, Ohio.
Yasser Bajsair, CEO of Investcorp KSA, said: "The global COVID-19 pandemic has further underscored the importance of industrial real estate assets located near major population and logistics hubs. We are excited to enhance our wider industrial real estate portfolio through the acquisition of these highly occupied properties in desirable industrial markets."
Babak Sultani, managing director in the placement and distribution team at Investcorp, said: "Industrial, warehouse and logistics real estate are among our highest conviction global investment themes in today's landscape. E-commerce sales are growing at a 15% CAGR, far outpacing industrial real estate supply at a 1.5% CAGR.
"We believe these tailwinds along with greater supply chain diversification, and on-shoring of goods in the US due to COVID-19 to maintain greater inventory levels, will drive greater demand for industrial real estate assets like the ones we have assembled across our portfolio."
Investcorp ranked as the second largest international buyer and fourth largest international seller of US real estate for the 2019 calendar year, according to Real Capital Analytics. In addition, Investcorp ranked as a top-15 overall buyer of US industrial real estate for the 2019 calendar year, according to Real Capital Analytics. — SG
