GLOBAL Logistic Properties (GLP) and its offeror are aiming to take the company private by April 14, 2018 after receiving in-principle approval from the Singapore Exchange (SGX), the group announced on Monday morning.

The offeror is Nesta Investment Holdings Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Nesta Investment Holdings MidCo Limited, which is owned by a group comprising Hopu, Hillhouse Capital, SMG, Bank of China Group Investment and Vanke Group.

GLP chief executive Ming Z Mei, who was appointed on September 2010, is also a director of Nesta.

Both companies intend to dispatch the scheme document by Dec 1, 2017. If the scheme is successful, shareholders will receive S$3.38 in cash per share and GLP will be delisted from the SGX.

GLP last closed at S$3.30 a share on Friday.

The acquisition will also see an exit for Singapore's sovereign wealth fund GIC, which holds a 36.84 per cent stake in the company.
