Mitsui Fudosan Plans to Increase Investment in Stanhope
Mitsui Fudosan Co. (8801), Japan's largest property developer by
sales, plans to boost its investment in U.K. developer Stanhope Plc
as part of its $6.4 billion global expansion plan.
Mitsui Fudosan, which owns 15 percent of the London-based
developer, is also in talks with several companies as it seeks to
increase its foothold in other countries such as Germany and
France, said Hideto Yamada, managing director of Mitsui Fudosan
(UK) Ltd. He declined to provide details because the deal hasn't
been made public yet.
"We are comfortable with this partnership and I believe it has
been quite successful, so within the near future, we are increasing
our commitment," Yamada said in an interview in Tokyo. "Since we
are extending our operation in continental Europe, we are keeping a
dialog with potential partners there."
