Global Logistic Properties Undertakes Strategic Review

Global Logistic Properties Limited (SGX:MC0) is undertaking a strategic review of options available to enhance shareholder value, following a request from its largest shareholder GIC Pte. Ltd. It has appointed JP Morgan (SEA) Limited as its financial advisor and constituted a special committee, consisting of four independent directors, to oversee the strategic review. "As part of the strategic review, Global Logistic Properties through JPMorgan is in the process of making preliminary approaches to various parties to evaluate the viability of options available for its business," Global Logistic Properties said. But it added that there is no assurance that any transaction will materialise from the strategic review and the company will make an appropriate announcement in the event of any material developments. Its clarification filing followed a Bloomberg article the same day, which reported that GLP is working with JPMorgan to review strategic options after drawing unsolicited interest from an investor group including China Investment Corporation; Hillhouse Capital Management, Ltd.; HOPU Jinghua (Beijing) Investment Consultancy Co., Ltd. But GLP made no mention of this unsolicited interest in its clarification announcement. When contacted by Business Times, a GLP spokeswoman declined to comment.

A spokeswoman for GLP declined to comment, while CIC didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. Officials at the consortium members declined to comment or didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.
