Feb. 26 (Bloomberg) -- Government of Singapore Investment Corp. said its sale of a stake in Global Logistic Properties Ltd. is part of its rebalancing of its holdings and that it remains a “substantial” long-term shareholder in the real estate company.
GIC, Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund that’s Global Logistic’s biggest shareholder, is raising S$1.5 billion ($1.2 billion) selling part of its stake in GLP, according to a term sheet obtained by Bloomberg News today.
“GIC has been the major shareholder in GLP since its establishment,” the state fund said in an e-mailed statement today. “We are pleased with the company’s execution of its strategies and are confident of its long-term prospects.”
The stake on offer is about 13 percent of the total shares outstanding of Singapore-based Global Logistic, according to data compiled by Bloomberg News. JPMorgan Chase & Co, is the only bookrunner on the sale, according to the term sheet. Global Logistic is the biggest owner of Japan industrial properties.
GIC is offering 595.7 million shares at S$2.60 apiece, according to the term sheet obtained by Bloomberg News. That’s the lower end of the range of S$2.60 to S$2.66 apiece and a 5.5 percent discount from Global Logistic’s closing price of S$2.75 yesterday, according to an earlier term sheet obtained by Bloomberg News.
