CapitaLand India trust to buy IT park in Pune for Rs 1,350 crore

CapitaLand India Trust has agreed to acquire an IT park in Pune for Rs 1,350 crore.

According to a statement, CapitaLand India Trust through its wholly-owned subsidiary Ecospace IT Park Pvt. entered into definitive agreements for the proposed acquisition of close to 100% of International Tech Park Pune in Hinjawadi, Pune.

Ascendas IT Park (Pune) owns this IT Park, which is an IT SEZ with a total floor area of about 2.3 million square feet spread across four buildings. The asset is almost 100% leased to IT/ITeS tenants, such as Infosys Ltd., Synechron Technologies and Tata Consultancy Services Ltd.

The agreements were executed between the Ecospace IT Park and each of the shareholders of Ascendas IT Park (Pune) Pvt. Ltd.

CapitaLand Investment and its joint venture partner Maharashtra Industrial Development Corp. have entered into separate agreements with CapitaLand India Trust to divest their respective 78.5% and 21.5% shareholding in the Ascendas IT Park (Pune).

The proposed deal provides CapitaLand India Trust with the ability to create further scale in its portfolio in India and deepens its presence in Pune, which provides significant operational advantages.

CapitaLand India Trust Management Pte is the Trustee-Manager of CapitaLand India Trust.

Sanjeev Dasgupta, chief executive officer of the Trustee-Manager said, “The marquee tenant profile with a high level of occupancy will add substantial scale to the CLINT portfolio.”

CLINT, formerly known as Ascendas India Trust (a-iTrust), was listed on the Singapore Exchange Securities Trading Limited (SGX-ST) in August 2007 as the first Indian property trust in Asia. Its principal objective is to own income-producing real estate used primarily as business space in India.

As of June 30, 2022, CLINT’s assets under management stand at Singapore dollar 2.5 billion.

CLINT’s portfolio includes eight world-class IT business parks, one logistics park, one industrial facility and one data centre development in India, with a total completed floor area of 15.5 million square feet spread across Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Pune and Mumbai. PTI
