SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Warburg Pincus-backed warehouse operator e-Shang Redwood has agreed to buy an 80 percent indirect stake in the manager of Cambridge Industrial Trust (CIT) CMIT.SI from National Australia Bank (NAB.AX) and investment firm Oxley Group.
e-Shang Redwood said the deal would mark its initial foray into Southeast Asia.
NAB holds 56 percent while Oxley holds a 24 percent stake in the manager of CIT, a real estate investment trust that owns assets such as warehouses and logistics properties. Mitsui and Co owns the remaining 20 percent.
The companies did not disclose the deal value.
In October, e-Shang Redwood had entered into an option agreement to buy up to 10.65 percent of CIT, which is valued by the market at about $501 million, from three existing unitholders.
