“The strategic investment will leverage the rental income streams from select Adnoc real estate assets under a 24-year master lease agreement,” it added.
Under the real estate transaction, which Adnoc said was one of the region’s largest, private equity firm Apollo led a consortium of institutional investors to acquire a 49 per cent stake in Abu Dhabi Property Leasing Holding Company (Adplhc), which is a wholly owned affiliate of Adnoc.
The Abu Dhabi oil producing company will retain a 51 per cent majority stake, maintaining full ownership and control over the select real estate and social infrastructure assets, it added.
