Mitsubishi Corporation Enters into Strategic Partnership Agreement with I
Squared Capital 
Tokyo, July 23, 2014 - (JCN Newswire) -  Mitsubishi Corporation (TSE 8058; LSE
MBC, "MC") has entered into a strategic partnership agreement with I
Squared Capital Advisors (US) LLC ("ISQ"), an independent
infrastructure investment fund manager. Through this partnership, MC and ISQ
will collaborate in various areas of infrastructure investment, including deal
sourcing and asset management. In addition, MC, through a subsidiary, has made
a USD 100 million commitment to ISQ Global Infrastructure Fund, L.P., which
invests in infrastructure assets globally. 
ISQ was founded in 2012 by former executives of Morgan Stanley, including
Sadek Wahba, Gautam Bhandari and Adil Rahmathulla and is one of the few
infrastructure firms with offices in the Americas, Europe and Asia. Focusing on
the energy, utilities and transport sectors, ISQ is using its proprietary
risk-assessment model to develop a globally-diversified infrastructure
portfolio targeting stable returns with moderate risk. ISQ has already
completed a few investments, including a cogeneration plant near Boston, and a
district cooling plant in Cincinnati, United States. 
MC's earlier initiatives in the sector include investments in major
infrastructure funds and the launch of an infrastructure investment alliance
with domestic and international pension funds. MC, through its wholly-owned
subsidiaries, manages Japanese investors' capital through the alliance.
Our strategic partnership with ISQ further enhances these initiatives. Through
collaboration with Mitsubishi Corporation Asset Management Ltd.
("MCAM"), one of its wholly-owned subsidiaries, MC is developing
methods to enable Japanese institutional investors to invest in infrastructure,
where demand is strong and growing.
