Sidra Capital seals US$206m deal for US Industrial Portfolio


The acquisition brings total AUM to US$ 2 billion with over US$ 800 million worth of assets in the US

Dubai, November 10 2019 – Sidra Capitala GCC-based Shari’ah-compliant asset manager, has completed its second US industrial real estate acquisition with a deal worth US$ 206 million. The portfolio is comprised of 30 fully occupied single tenant net leased assets spread across 15 key states.

The portfolio benefits from a roster of strong mid-market and large companies that have occupied their respective assets for an average of 27 years. With a weighted average unexpired lease in excess of 13 years, the portfolio is expected to deliver strong and stable cash yield for the investment hold period.

The purchase of this portfolio follows the aggregation of a portfolio of six US student accommodation assets and the acquisition of a site occupied by Sainsbury’s in the United Kingdom earlier in the year. These acquisitions have increased Sidra Capital’s total AUM to US$ 2 billion, of which over US$800 million is in the United States.

“The outlook for the US industrial real estate market is extremely positive with expectations of being one of the most profitable markets in the country, amid low vacancy rates of under-five percent.

With the continued integration of logistics and retail, low-interest rates, growing demand and evolving trend of manufacturing on-shoring, the US industrial real estate sector will remain resilient and offer opportunities for growth and re-leveraging and enhancing of industrial assets’ value,” said Vice Chairman of Sidra Capital, Hani Baothman.



The MoU was signed by Professor Zeger Degraeve, Dean of MBSC, and Majed AlMuhanna, Chief Human Capital Officer of SNBC.
