IndoSpace, an India-based developer of industrial real estate and warehousing facilities, has closed its third logistics real estate fund at $1.2 billion. The fund will focus on developing and acquiring industrial and logistics-related real estate investments in India.

PRESS RELEASE

Mumbai, December 13, 2018 – IndoSpace, India’s leading developer of industrial real estate and warehousing facilities, announced today that it held the final close on IndoSpace Logistic Parks III (“ILP III” or the “Fund”), the largest logistics real estate fund ever raised in India. The offering was significantly oversubscribed on the back of strong investor demand.

US$580 million of total equity has been committed to ILP III which, post leverage will create a corpus of more than US$1.2 billion to develop and acquire industrial and logistics-related real estate investments in India. IndoSpace will use the capital to further strengthen its market leadership position.

Leading global institutional investors have invested in ILP III. In September 2018, GLP established a strategic joint venture with IndoSpace, marking its entry into India. GLP will partner with IndoSpace to develop logistics parks in India as well as co-invest in IndoSpace’s managed investment vehicles.

Sameer Sain, Co-Founder and CEO of the Everstone Group (co-founder of IndoSpace), said, “The successful fund raise is a big endorsement of IndoSpace’s leadership in the industrial and logistics real estate space in India. We thank and welcome investors into our fund and look forward to serving our customers with our unique national network and large integrated platform.”

Ming Mei, Co-Founder and CEO of GLP, said, “We congratulate the IndoSpace team on its largest ever fund raise, which provides long-term capital to further strengthen our market-leading position and network to better serve customers across India. The successful fund raise of ILP III reflects the confidence institutional investors have in us and we look forward to working closely with IndoSpace to capitalize on the early growth stages of India’s rapidly modernizing logistics landscape.”
