Partners Group Trades U.S. Industrial Portfolio for $1B-Plus

Switzerland-based private equity firm Partners Group has sold a large-scale portfolio of U.S. industrial properties at a gross asset value of more than US$1 billion. Published reports say the buyer was AIG Real Estate, which is recapitalizing the portfolio with Equus Capital Partners.

Totaling 8.6 million square feet, the portfolio includes 88 properties in five markets across the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast. The properties include 74 light industrial buildings and 14 Class A bulk industrial buildings.

Ron Lamontagne, managing director, co-head private real estate Americas at Partners, said, “We continue to see relative value in the industrial sector and, in particular, we have conviction in last-mile distribution facilities, smaller urban logistics warehouses and cold storage facilities, which are supported by resilient structural market trends.”

Newtown Square, PA-based Equus, which acquired the portfolio alongside Partners, was represented in the recapitalization by JLL’s Mike Joseph, Doug Bond and Dan Cashdan.
