Ardian Infrastructure sells Kallista Energy Investment to Boralex


Paris, 20 April 2018 – Ardian, a world-leading private investment house, today announces the signature of an agreement to sell Kallista Energy Investment, a wind energy producer, in which Ardian holds a 100% stake through its third generation infrastructure fund, to Boralex, one of the leaders in the Canadian renewable energy market and the first independent wind energy company in France.

Renewable energy transactions represent around 50% of the M&A volume in the Infrastructure sector. Ardian has a strong presence in this sector with a portfolio of 1.4GW of production capacity built since 2006 via investments in France, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Norway, Peru, Chili and the US, in wind, solar, hydraulic, biogas and biomass projects. Among these investments, Kallista Energy Investment generates 163MW with a pipe of around 170 MW, which makes it one of the largest renewable platforms in France.

Following Ardian’s acquisition of the company in 2011, Kallista Energy Investment launched an ambitious development programme that led to doubling the size of the company. The Kallista platform also specializes in “repowering”, which consists of replacing old windmills with new, more powerful turbines and a more advanced technology, helping the company to better profit from the wind energy potential of these sites. As a result of this approach, Kallista is able to multiply energy production by two times or even more.

Frédéric Roche, President of Kallista Energy Investment, said: “We are particularly satisfied to have partnered with Ardian in the consolidation of the wind sector in France. We have developed a strong relationship with the Ardian team, which has brought invaluable support specifically in the execution of complex transactions. Looking ahead, we are fully confident in Boralex’s ability to build the next chapter of Kallista Energy Investment’s history.”

Mathias Burghardt, Head of Ardian Infrastructure, added: “Renewable energy, including wind, is an efficient, reliable and therefore increasingly important source of energy. We have a strong commitment to the energy renewable sector and we are continuously looking to renew, diversify and develop our renewable energy portfolio. Our plan is to pursue this development strategy, notably in the US, Latin America and Scandinavia.”

Amir Sharifi, Managing Director at Ardian Infrastructure, added: “We are very pleased with our partnership with Kallista Energy Investment, which led to doubling the size of the company. We believe that Kallistais now mature and has a strong basis to pursue further growth within Boralex.”

Following the transaction, Ardian will share with Kallista Energy Investment employees a portion of the value created during the holding period. Each employee will have a bonus representing at least one month of salary. Ardian has been a pioneer in its commitment to shared outcomes, and since 2008 has distributed over €21m to 9,000 employees in 18 portfolio companies.


Ardian is a world-leading private investment house with assets of US$67bn managed or advised in Europe, North America and Asia. The company is majority-owned by its employees. It keeps entrepreneurship at its heart and focuses on delivering excellent investment performance to its global investor base. Through its commitment to shared outcomes for all stakeholders, Ardian’s activities fuel individual, corporate and economic growth around the world.

Partners Group and OPTrust to invest in US-based Superior Pipeline Company

Partners Group

Partners Group, the global private markets investment manager, acting on behalf of its clients, and OPTrust, a Canadian pension fund, have agreed to acquire a 50% joint control stake in Superior Pipeline Company (“Superior” or “the Company”), a leading midstream energy infrastructure company in the US. The stake is being acquired from US energy firm Unit Corporation (“Unit”, NYSE: UNT), which will continue to hold the remainder of the equity, in a transaction that values Superior at USD 600 million.

Founded in 1996 and based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Superior is a full-service midstream energy company providing services to producers for gas gathering, processing, treating, compression, dehydration, transportation and marketing of natural gas and natural gas liquids. Today, the Company owns and operates three natural gas treatment plants, 13 processing plants, 22 active gathering systems, and approximately 1,455 miles of pipeline across the US. The majority of its revenues are generated from long-term, fixed-fee contracts.

Following the investment, Partners Group and OPTrust, together with Unit, will work closely with Superior’s management team, led by Bob Parks, to grow its existing gathering systems and processing plants organically and to identify attractive acquisition targets to expand the platform.

Bob Parks, Founder and President of Superior, comments: “We are excited to welcome Partners Group and OPTrust on board and look forward to leveraging their proven track records of investment in the infrastructure sector. At Superior, we are committed to being the best midstream provider in the industry and are convinced our new partners share the entrepreneurial mindset that will allow us to achieve this goal.”

Todd Bright, Partner, Head of Private Infrastructure Americas, Partners Group, states: “We see compelling relative value in the US midstream segment, which is benefiting from the ongoing shale revolution. The US has become a net exporter of natural gas for the first time in 60 years, and there is a fundamental need for infrastructure that facilitates the delivery of that gas to end users. Superior is a proven provider of that infrastructure.”

Gavin Ingram, Global Head of Infrastructure, OPTrust, adds: “OPTrust is very pleased to be partnered with Unit and Partners Group in Superior. Superior’s strong management team, diversified asset base and attractive growth prospects make it an exciting investment opportunity. Superior is an excellent strategic fit within our existing portfolio of midstream investments, and we look forward to capitalizing on the growth opportunities ahead of us.”

Superior is the latest addition to Partners Group’s substantial portfolio of North American natural gas infrastructure assets. The firm’s most recent transactions include its investment in the construction of the Raven project, an ethylene to butene-1 processing facility to be located in Baytown, Texas, and the USD 240 million private placement of 10.75% Class A Convertible Preferred Units of NGL Energy Partners LP (NYSE: NGL), a diversified midstream energy company. In 2015, Partners Group acquired a joint control stake in Sentinel Energy Center, an 800 MW California-based natural gas-fired power generation facility, while in 2014, it acquired a majority stake in Fermaca, a leading provider of long-haul natural gas transportation infrastructure in Mexico and the US.

Partners Group sells stake in Japan Solar, a 610MW platform of Japanese solar power assets

Partners Group logo

Partners Group, the global private markets investment manager, has sold its stake in Japan Solar, a 610MW platform of Japanese solar power assets, on behalf of its clients. The stake was sold to a consortium led by Global Infrastructure Partners (“GIP”), generating a blended gross return of 3.2x on the original investment for Partners Group’s programs.

Partners Group invested alongside Equis Group to acquire its initial stake in Japan Solar in 2013, shortly after the Japanese government introduced a Feed-in Tariff to encourage investment in the renewable energy sector. Partners Group and others invested an initial USD 250 million to fund the construction of utility-scale power plants across the country. Japan Solar partnered with Nippon Renewable Energy, today one of Japan’s largest independent solar utility businesses, to support the build-out of the platform. Partners Group made a further equity investment into Japan Solar during the holding period, making it the largest shareholder in the platform.

At the time the sale to GIP was agreed, Japan Solar consisted of 27 secured projects totaling more than 610MW of capacity, of which over 200MW was operational and contracted into long-term power purchase agreements with Japanese electric utility companies. It is estimated that once Japan Solar’s secured projects become operational, they will generate enough energy to power around 133,000 households.

Benjamin Haan, Partner, Head of Private Infrastructure Asia, Partners Group, comments: “Japan Solar was a timely project and we are delighted to have contributed to the build-out of Japan’s renewable energy production capacity. The successful sale of our stake in Japan Solar ahead of our original exit timeline provides an attractive return to our clients and endorses our strategy of platform-building in markets supported by transformative trends.”

The sale of its holding in Japan Solar is Partners Group’s third announced infrastructure exit this month on behalf of its clients. Earlier in January, Partners Group announced it had agreed to sell its ownership stake in Silicon Ranch Corporation, a leading developer, owner and operator of solar energy facilities in the US, to Shell. The firm also sold its ownership stake in the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre, a cancer research, treatment and education centre in Melbourne, Australia, to AMP Capital’s Community Infrastructure Fund.
