HTL and HTL Capital Advisors
In response to the needs of domestic and overseas investors for operational
asset investment opportunities
TOKYO -- September 4, 2013
Tokyu Livable, Inc. (TOKYO:8879)(‘TLI’) is pleased to announce that it has
reached an agreement with Horwath HTL - Japan (“HHTL”) and HTL Capital
Advisors LLC (“HCA”) to collaborate on the provision of services related to
hotel asset transactions.
With this agreement, TLI will expand its business opportunities related to
operational assets, particularly hotels, which have recently been attracting
investors as a new investment target in the real estate market.
Handling of these assets requires much more professional expertise and a
greater global network, due to the fluctuation of daily cash flows. HHTL and
HCA are working in parallel, developing their hotel investment consulting
business globally, and by collaborating with these companies, TLI aims to
expand its brokerage business in Japan’s hotel investment market for both
domestic and overseas investors.
TLI has already set up special teams in its Business Solutions Head Office
dedicated to particular asset types, such as hotels, logistics properties,
senior housing, retail properties, etc., to strengthen its expertise in
providing real estate market business solutions. In addition, TLI established
the Global Business Development Unit (“GBD”) in the Business Solutions Head
Office, to expand its overseas related businesses, providing information and
investment services related to real estate investment in Japan, mainly for
English speaking investors. TLI completed the brokerage of the Sheraton Grande
Tokyo Bay Hotel (Urayasu City, Chiba Prefecture) for a large US fund in July
TLI will continue to adapt to the changing real estate market situation and
provide superior services for domestic and overseas investors.
The details of the collaboration are as follows;
