“Realizing over $300 million in legacy monetizations this quarter is a huge achievement”
Combined with the results from other sales activity consummated since September 30, including the $85 million in net proceeds from its previously announced sale of the Bulk Industrial Portfolio, the Company has generated $308 million in net OED monetizations during the fourth quarter, a premium to the aggregate carrying value for these assets, which were held at a cumulative net equity of $298 million as of September 30, 2020. These sales bring total net OED proceeds to Colony to $695 million year to date, achieving the high end of the Company’s accelerated OED target of $600-700 million for 2020. The proceeds from these sales support the Company’s ongoing strategic plan to rotate the balance sheet and redeploy capital into digital infrastructure.
