Acacia buys $69m stake

MANAMA: Acacia Real Estate Limited has obtained 49 % of an Information Technology Park in India.
Logix TechnoPark is located in Noida – a master planned city adjacent to Delhi. Acacia is the real estate company that Bahrain-based TAIB Bank spearheaded in December 2006.
Total acquisition cost was $69 million. With a projected internal rate of return of over 24pc per annum, the deal was structured to provide investors with downside protection and an average cash coupon of 8pc per annum over a three-year holding period.
TAIB Bank is the exclusive placement agent for the project.
The property, along the Greater Noida Expressway, consists of four newly built 100pc occupied office towers with a total gross leasable area of 461,120sq/ft. It is currently leased to such strong tenants as Oracle, Mentor Graphics, Conexant Systems and SafeNet InfoTech.
“We are proud to be able to offer our clients this unique opportunity to invest in India’s real estate market,” said Acacia executive committee board member and TAIB Bank chief executive and vice-chairman Iqbal Mamdani.
