Mitsubishi Corporation Enters into Strategic Partnership Agreement with I Squared Capital

Tokyo, July 23, 2014 - (JCN Newswire) - Mitsubishi Corporation (TSE 8058; LSE MBC, "MC") has entered into a strategic partnership agreement with I Squared Capital Advisors (US) LLC ("ISQ"), an independent infrastructure investment fund manager. Through this partnership, MC and ISQ will collaborate in various areas of infrastructure investment, including deal sourcing and asset management. In addition, MC, through a subsidiary, has made a USD 100 million commitment to ISQ Global Infrastructure Fund, L.P., which invests in infrastructure assets globally.

ISQ was founded in 2012 by former executives of Morgan Stanley, including Sadek Wahba, Gautam Bhandari and Adil Rahmathulla and is one of the few infrastructure firms with offices in the Americas, Europe and Asia. Focusing on the energy, utilities and transport sectors, ISQ is using its proprietary risk-assessment model to develop a globally-diversified infrastructure portfolio targeting stable returns with moderate risk. ISQ has already completed a few investments, including a cogeneration plant near Boston, and a district cooling plant in Cincinnati, United States.

MC's earlier initiatives in the sector include investments in major infrastructure funds and the launch of an infrastructure investment alliance with domestic and international pension funds. MC, through its wholly-owned subsidiaries, manages Japanese investors' capital through the alliance. Our strategic partnership with ISQ further enhances these initiatives. Through collaboration with Mitsubishi Corporation Asset Management Ltd. ("MCAM"), one of its wholly-owned subsidiaries, MC is developing methods to enable Japanese institutional investors to invest in infrastructure, where demand is strong and growing.
