FT Reports Prologis Bid on Blackstone’s Logistics Business
05 April 2022

Prologis has allegedly made “a non-binding offer of a little over €21 billion” for Mileway, Blackstone’s European logistics business. This would make the deal the largest-ever private real estate transaction.

Blackstone recapitalised Mileway in February 2022, offering investors the option to retain or increase their shareholding, or exit for cash.

The Financial Times reported that Blackstone now has about six weeks to finalise a bid “that satisfies a number of conditions laid down by the funds selling Mileway.”
