Carlyle Global Partners, GIC investing in AmEx travel management platform

Carlyle Group LP's private equity platform, Carlyle Global Partners LP, and institutional investor GIC are taking a stake in American Express Global Business Travel via an equity recapitalization deal, the business travel management company said in a news release.

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed, but American Express Co. will retain 50% ownership of the firm, according to the release.

Carlyle Global Partners and GIC are joining the group of investors holding the other 50%, led by Certares Management LLC, including Qatar Investment Authority, certain funds managed by BlackRock Inc. and Teacher Retirement System of Texas.

The University of California Office of the Chief Investment Officer of the Regents and Kaiser Permanente Inc. also joined the investor group.

The deal values the travel management company at $5 billion, including debt, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing a source familiar with the matter.

American Express Global Business Travel has more than 18,000 employees across a network of more than 140 countries and manages more than $35 billion of yearly corporate travel, according to the press release from the company.

Greg O’Hara, founder and senior managing director of Certares, will continue as executive chairman of American Express Global Business Travel.
