EIG Global Energy Partners now supports the Carlyle Group‘s pending buy of TCW Group, according to an agreement announced by the firms Wednesday. Terms of the agreement call for EIG to publicly support, and assist TCW in securing investor consent, for the sale. TCW will also maintain its economic interest in existing EIG-managed funds, while EIG will assume full management responsibility for the Funds as general partner and investment manager. EIG last summer sued to stop Carlyle’s buy of TCW Group, claiming that the deal would give Carlyle access to EIG’s information , according to the Wall Street Journal. The TCW-Carlyle trandsaction is on track to close in the near future, the statement says.
