Morgan Stanley Real Estate Investing Key Developments

Bidders Offer Premium For Investa Offices

The five to six final bidders in the advanced stage of the contest to buy Morgan Stanley Real Estate Investing's $8.9 billion Investa Property Group platform are believed to have lobbed bids valuing the offices on the group's balance sheet at a premium of up to 33% to their book value, as foreshadowed by The Australian online on May 6, 2015 night. Among the parties to have made the final cut are Cromwell Property Group (ASX:CMW), which is advised by Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Dexus Property Group (ASX:DXS), advised by Deutsche Bank AG (DB:DBK) and The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (NYSE:GS), and The Blackstone Group L.P. (NYSE:BX) and Brookfield Asset Management Inc. (TSX:BAM.A), which are both self-advised. A sixth contender could also be in the frame in the UBS Group AG (SWX:UBSN) and Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS)-run process. It is understood that offers for the assets on Investa's balance sheet, which include prestigious office skyscrapers such as Sydney's Deutsche Bank Place, are between $2.1 billion and $2.4 billion. Dexus may be partnering with the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, one source said.
