Carlyle and Montano form joint partnership to invest in urban logistics assets in Germany

• Carlyle has mandated Montano Real Estate with the asset management of an existing portfolio of 12 distribution logistics assets In Germany

• The new partnership will seek to grow the portfolio through further add-on acquisitions up to EUR 500m

Global investment firm Carlyle (NASDAQ: CG) and Montano Real Estate today announced the formation of a joint partnership to invest in logistics properties with a focus on distribution assets in prime urban locations in Germany.

Under the terms of the new partnership, Montano will take control of the asset management of Carlyle’s existing 12 distribution logistics properties across Germany, which were acquired by Carlyle through European Carlyle Europe Realty (CER), a €540 million pan-European real estate fund. Montano will work together with Carlyle to further grow the portfolio on behalf of discretionary fund managed by CER.

The partnership will predominantly focus on logistics assets in German cities with strong demographic and economic fundamentals. Carlyle and Montano will look to add value by implementing an active asset management and leasing strategy, including refurbishments and selective repositionings. The Partnership aims to grow the overall portfolio to EUR 500m over the coming years.

Ramin Rabeian, Managing Partner at Montano, said: “The distribution logistics sector continues to grow rapidly, and we are delighted to partner with a globally reputable investment group like Carlyle, to explore opportunities in market. We will look to add value through our sourcing and asset management capabilities and expect that our joint partnership with Carlyle will enable us to grow the portfolio quickly.”

Erik Orbach, Director on the Carlyle Europe Realty advisory team, said: “Germany represents one of Europe’s most established and attractive logistics markets with strong demand fundamentals and a shortage of high-quality modern logistics assets. Leveraging our extensive global and regional insights, and investing experience of the Carlyle Europe Realty team, we look forward to expanding our logistics footprint in Germany together with Montano.”

Carsten Quehl, Director on the Carlyle Europe Realty advisory team, said: “We are delighted to strengthen and expand our asset management capabilities in the German logistics segment, which is core to our investment strategy in Europe, by partnering with an experienced and recognised industry leader in Montano.”

Montano with new focus and ambitions

Portfolio expanded to include own investment products / Growth strategy well on track

The Munich-based investment specialists, who previously operated primarily as service providers under the name Montano Asset Management GmbH, are changing their name to Montano Real Estate GmbH. With immediate effect, they are expanding their range of services to include their own investment products. The company is pursuing an ambitious growth strategy.

The declared goal of the two Montano founders and managing partners Ramin Rabeian and Sebastian Schöberl is to increase the assets under management volume to 6-8 billion euros by 2025. In the first half of 2021, Montano already realised a transaction volume of around 800 million euros. Thus, the implementation of the growth strategy is well on track. TTL AG's stake in Montano at the end of 2020, which was increased in May from initially 30% to now 50%, provides additional tailwind.

"We look forward to acquiring attractive core properties ourselves in the future and incorporating them into our own investment products," says Ramin Rabeian. "As an independent local anchor for our international clients, we have been developing top properties in the German commercial real estate market for almost ten years. Now it's time to take it to the next level." Sebastian Schöberl adds: "We understand real estate and we understand investments. What could be more obvious than to translate these competences into our own products and thus offer ourselves as a partner to local institutional investors? With our own acquisition of real estate, we take much more risk ourselves and assume responsibility for significant value enhancement of sustainable investments."

Founded in 2013 by Ramin Rabeian and Sebastian Schöberl, Montano quickly advanced to become the leading independent real estate investment and management company in the German commercial real estate market. Extensive experience in asset management for institutional and international investors secured a steadily growing stream of renowned managed real estate projects. After more than forty successfully completed transactions and with over 1.6 billion euros in assets under management, Montano now also offers its own products for institutional investors. The company's goal is to pre-configure complex real estate projects in such a way that investors can realise lucrative increases in value significantly above the market level under clear framework conditions.

Montano buys office complex adjoining Dusseldorf central station

Montano, one of the leading real estate asset and investment managers in the German commercial real estate market, acting for a professional pension fund, has acquired an office complex with a lettable area of around 9,800 square metres, directly adjoining Dusseldorf central railway station. MEAG, asset manager of Munich Re and ERGO, is acting on behalf of the vendor. Ramin Rabeian, Managing Partner of Montano Asset Management GmbH, explains: "Montano is specifically looking for attractive properties in the most important German markets. In furtherance of this strategy, we are pleased to announce the acquisition of the property in Dusseldorf. The building is in an excellent location, directly adjoining the central railway station, in an established Dusseldorf submarket that has a very low vacancy rate and has developed very positively."

The main tenant in the property, at Willi-Becker-Allee 10, is the City of Dusseldorf education authority. The building also houses the consulates of the USA and the United Kingdom. The accommodation is fully let on long-term leases. The office complex also includes around 230 parking spaces in the multi-storey car park of Dusseldorf central railway station, which are rented from Deutsche Bahn, among others.

CBRE facilitated the transaction on behalf of the vendor. Mayer Brown provided legal advice to the purchaser. The purchaser’s technical due diligence was carried out by Chandler KBS.

Montano advises on the sale of “Uptown Munich”

Montano was mandated with the management of Munich's landmark property “Uptown Munich” and, at 146 meters, the tallest office building in the city in 2017. Through an active asset management approach, all office leases were renewed or extended during this time.

With a long-term extension of the anchor lease contract, a significant increase in value was achieved, which has now been realized in a share deal transaction to DIC Asset AG. In preparation for the transaction, the Uptown Vision 2030 concept was initiated to increase the attractiveness of the Uptown site and has been implemented since the beginning of the year.

In addition to Montano, BNP Paribas, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer (legal) as well as Drees & Sommer and TA Europe (technical) acted as consultants.

Hamburg: Montano Asset Management leases 1,800 square meters of office space to the City of Hamburg

Montano Asset Management (Montano), partner and asset manager for institutional investors in the German commercial real estate market, has leased 1,800 square meters of office space in Hamburg's Airport Center office location to the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg on a long-term basis. The tenant's lease at Flughafenstrasse 52 will commence after completion of the extensive conversion work, probably in the 4th quarter of 2021.

District Office Director Michael Werner-Boelz explained, "The future location of the Department for Foreigners' Affairs is a real step forward: the new premises at the Airport Center are bright and friendly. In addition, it is excellently connected to public transport with the Fuhlsbüttel Nord subway stop and is therefore easy to reach for our customers."

The property has been successively modernized and re-let since its purchase in 2019. In the future, in addition to additional modernization measures, the opening of a canteen is also planned.

Julius Falcinelli, Head of Asset Management at Montano, commented, "We are convinced that, in addition to modern office concepts and good accessibility, the feel-good factor on site plays an increasingly important role in the location decision. With our new tenant and its customers and clients, we are creating even more of a campus atmosphere at Airport Center." The lease was brokered by Savills.

Montano Asset Management achieves EUR 1.6 bn of assets under management at the end of 2020

Montano Asset Management (Montano), partner and asset manager for institutional investors in the German commercial real estate market, performed outstandingly in 2020 and, over the year, Montano realised seven property transactions, with a total volume of EUR 275 million. EUR 218 million of this was accounted for by disposals, of mainly retail properties, which included the Neucölln Carree in Berlin and the B8 Center in Dusseldorf.

As at 31 December, Montano had attained EUR 1.6 bn of assets under management. The 536,000 square metres of accommodation in these properties comprises 80% office and 20% retail space. All the real estate assets are situated in Germany. In the fourth quarter of 2020, Montano effected its first purchase for a German institutional investor. Further acquisitions for this investor are anticipated in the 1st quarter of 2021. This demonstrates that Montano is significantly expanding its investor base, which was formerly concentrated exclusively on investors from outside Germany.

Montano is planning a transaction volume in excess of EUR 600 million in 2021, particularly in the retail, office and logistics / light industrial asset classes. In portfolio management, during the year Montano succeeded in concluding or extending 39 leases, involving over 70,000 square metres of accommodation. Ramin Rabeian, Managing Partner of Montano, explains: “We are very pleased that TTL Beteiligungs- und Grundbesitz-AG acquired a 30% stake in Montano Asset Management GmbH in December 2020. The inflow of funds from the resultant increase in capital will be applied by Montano not only to expand the institutional management business but also to realise value-add and warehousing transactions.”

TTL continues growth strategy and acquires a stake in Montano Asset Management GmbH

TTL acquires 30 percent of Montano through the acquisition of shares from current share-holders and subscription of a capital increase. Montano Asset Management GmbH is one of the leading independent core-plus and value-add real estate managers in Germany. Excellent synergies through complementary business areas.

TTL Beteiligungs- und Grundbesitz-AG ("TTL", "TTL AG") (ISIN DE0007501009) acquires a 30 percent stake in Montano Asset Management GmbH (Montano). Montano manages commercial real estate in Germany primarily for institutional investors from abroad. TTL invests through the acquisition of shares from current Montano shareholders and the subscription of a capital increase. The purchase price for the 30 percent share is in line with normal market conditions. The closing of the transaction is scheduled for December 2020.

"With the investment in Montano, we continue to implement our strategy of growth through direct and indirect participation in attractive real estate companies and projects. Montano is one of the leading core-plus and value-add real estate managers in Germany with a diverse range of services, a strong track record and a young, dynamic team. We expect considerable growth for both companies from the synergies of the business models of TTL and Montano. As a real estate investment company, we will benefit directly from the combination of Montano's operational know-how with TTL's recognised expertise in financing and supporting real estate projects," says Theo Reichert, CEO of TTL AG.

The service range of Montano Asset Management GmbH, founded in 2012 and headquartered in Munich, includes the areas of asset management (including renting management), investment management (acquisition review and transaction advice) and co-investments. The value of the real estate assets under management is around EUR 1.5 billion, with office properties accounting for around 80 percent and retail properties for 20 percent. The managed portfolio currently comprises around 70 properties, including the Airport Center in Hamburg, the Sky Deutschland headquarters in Unterföhring, the Kö-Campus in Eschborn, the Federal Network Agency in Bonn and the Wangen Campus in Stuttgart.

"We are delighted to have found a competent and recognised partner in TTL. We plan to significantly accelerate the growth of Montano on this basis. We will use the inflow of funds from the capital increase to implement growth opportunities more quickly", explains Ramin Rabeian, managing partner of Montano Asset Management GmbH. "TTL already has experience from the success story of GEG in accelerating the growth of promising real estate companies". The aim is to develop Montano from a local partner for international investors in the German commercial property market to a fully integrated investment and asset management platform for actively managed property investments. In addition to the expansion of the institutional management business, value-add and warehousing transactions are to be realised in the future. To this end, TTL and Montano will jointly co-finance and implement selected real estate investments within the framework of joint ventures via co-investments. The strategic added value of the Montano investment for TTL results from the extended and preferred access to attractive real estate investment opportunities. In addition, TTL participates in the planned co-investments with Montano on several levels: Through direct participation in real estate investments, through interest income from mezzanine capital, since this is provided as part of TTL's financing, and indirectly through Montano's respective co-investment share.

Montano Asset Management triples 2019 transaction volume to EUR 575 million

Montano Asset Management ("Montano"), local partner and asset manager for international investors in the German commercial property market, more than tripled its transaction volume in 2019. It participated in purchases and sales with a total volume of EUR 575 million (2018: EUR 173 million). In addition, the assets under management rose to around EUR 1.7 billion in the past year (2018: EUR 1.5 billion). By the end of last year, the portfolio managed by the company included 64 German properties.

The office segment accounted for around 84% of the transaction volume, with the retail segment making up some 16%. For example, Investcorp, a leading global provider and manager of alternative investment products, was advised on the acquisition of the Lyoner Stern office building in Frankfurt and the Airport Center in Hamburg. In addition, Swiss real estate investor Gold Tree was advised on the sale of the headquarters of pay-TV provider Sky Deutschland, in Unterföhring, to Publity.

For example, a new office under the management of Thomas Ebeloe, was opened in Frankfurt. A qualified real estate economist (IRE|BS), Ebeloe joined Montano from the GEG German Estate Group AG, Frankfurt, where he was as Senior Asset Manager responsible for strategic asset management of core real estate in Frankfurt and Munich worth EUR 550 million. Montano also reinforced its teams in Munich and Berlin. The new Senior Asset Manager in Munich is Alexandra Singer.

He was previously at Estama Real Estate Management.

Ramin Rabeian, Managing Partner of Montano, comments on his expectations for the coming months: "We are observing an increase in investors' readiness to take risks and a significant rise in demand for core plus and value-added investments, our core businesses. We are therefore confident that we will once again achieve a high transaction volume this year. Substantial funds for acquisitions have already been committed".
