US$3 billion final close for Macquarie Super Core Infrastucture Fund Series 1

AMP Capital announced on 19 August that Singapore-based G. K. Goh Holdings Limited will acquire a 47.62% stake in the AMP Capital managed residential aged care provider Domain Principal Group for A$136.7 million.

In addition, AMP Life will increase its ownership from 42.5 per cent to 47.62 per cent. This means that GK Goh and AMP Life will both hold equal 47.62% interests in DPG as other clients re-weight their portfolios and exit the investment. The remaining stake in the company is held by DPG management.

AMP Capital will continue to manage the investment on behalf of all shareholders.

As part of the transaction, AMP Life and GK Goh plan to invest an additional A$50 million to finance further investment in Australia's aged care sector.

AMP Life has invested in the aged care sector in Australia since 1999. GK Goh, through a fund it has asignificant stake in, is also a part owner of retirement villages in Western Australia. AMP Capital Head of Aged Care Sally Evans said:

"We're really pleased that AMP Life and GK Goh will be partners in the continued growth of DPG. The transaction gives DPG the opportunity to grow through investment in the existing 55 facilities, as well as building new state-of-the-art homes and potential acquisitions.

Since AMP Capital acquired its initial aged care investment asset on behalf of clients in 2005, we've managed the acquisition of Domain Aged Care and significantly invested in the business.

With the residential aged care sector expected to grow by 40 per cent in the next 10 years, as the population ages, an estimated A$25 billion of capital will be needed to fund new places and rebuild existing homes."

The transaction is subject to various approvals including GK Goh shareholders and the Foreign Investment Review Board in Australia.
