Global company advised on Aus block trade

Global company advised on Aus block trade

David Ryan

A global alternative asset manager has been advised on the $350 million block trade of its remaining stake in one of Australia’s largest logistics companies.

Firm: DLA Piper (Carlyle Infrastructure Partners)

Deal: Carlyle Infrastructure Partners has been advised on a block trade of its remaining stake in Qube Holdings Limited with Citigroup.

Value: $350 million

Area: Finance

Key players: The DLA Piper team was led by corporate partner David Ryan (pictured), with assistance from finance and projects partner Onno Bakker, senior associates Tim Perry, Gary Segal and Kelly Morrison, and solicitor Olivia Wild.

Deal significance: Carlyle Infrastructure Partners is owned by the Carlyle Group.

The Carlyle Group is a global investment firm with US$176 billion of assets under management across 128 funds and 170 fund of funds vehicles.

The Carlyle Group has more than 1,650 professionals operating in 35 offices in North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Australia.

“Infrastructure stocks are certainly in demand and we’re delighted to have advised Carlyle on this block trade of its remaining stake in Qube, one of Australia’s largest providers of import and export logistics services,” said David Ryan, corporate partner at DLA Piper.

“This trade brings Carlyle’s five years as an investor in Qube to a successful conclusion.”

Reunion Capital Partners also advised Carlyle on this deal. Citi was the sole bookrunner and underwriter on the sale, which represents 9.5 per cent of Qube (137.4 million shares).
