Prologis Takes Industrial Property Trust Portfolio for $4B

Prologis says it will acquire Black Creek Group’s Industrial Property Trust (IPT) platform for $3.99 billion in cash. The deal, which is subject to a 30-day go-shop period, follows the Blackstone Group agreement last month to buy GLP’s U.S. logistics portfolio for $18.7 billion.

“This is a compelling opportunity to acquire a portfolio of excellent asset quality and submarket composition consistent with our U.S. investment strategy and footprint,” said Eugene F. Reilly, CIO at Prologis. “We expect to capture significant cost and revenue synergies, in addition to enhancing customer relationships and insights.”

The acquisition covers 236 properties representing 37 million square feet, of which 97% is currently leased. Not included are IPT’s minority interests in two unconsolidated joint venture platforms.

At Denver-based Black Creek, CEO Raj Dhanda said the transaction “makes sense for our investors.” He added that “we plan to continue to develop and acquire assets for other portfolios.”
