The Carlyle Group

See User information
Kul kvällsläsning..

The Carlyle Group, one of the world’s largest private equity funds, may soon acquire the $2 billion government contracting business of consulting giant Booz Allen Hamilton, one of the biggest suppliers of technology and personnel to the U.S. government’s spy agencies. Carlyle manages more than $75 billion in assets and has bought and sold a long string of military contractors since the early 1990s. But in recent years it has significantly reduced its investments in that industry. If it goes ahead with the widely reported plan to buy Booz Allen, it will re-emerge as the owner of one of America’s largest private intelligence armies.

Blågula vapen ett minne blott
Svensk försvarsindustri är inte längre svensk. De svenska vapensmedjorna är till stor del utlandsägda. Bland delägarna i Bofors fanns till helt nyligen George Bushs pappa och Usama bin Ladins familj.

Text: BJÖRN KUMM Fotomontage: JANN LIPKA

För inte så länge sedan hade Sverige en svensk försvarsindustri.

Alliansfritt i fred för att kunna stå neutralt i krig ville Sverige producera sina egna kanoner, sina egna flygplan, sitt eget krut under statens vakande öga. Somligt producerades av staten själv.

I början av 1990-talet tog det kalla kriget slut. Då gick också ridån ner för svensk försvarsindustri.

Nya ägare intog scenen. Bland annat Carlyle Group.

Till helt nyligen – från år 2000 fram till sommaren 2005 – ägdes viktiga delar av svensk försvarsindustri av ett amerikanskt företag vid namn United Defense. Studerar man detta företags ägare, är det som att se en film regisserad av George W Bushs värste vedersakare Michael Moore, han som gjorde filmerna Fahrenheit 9/11 och Bowling for Columbine.

United Defense tillverkar bland mycket annat stridsfordon för amerikanska armén. Företaget ägdes fram till 2005 av investmentbolaget Carlyle Group.

Carlyle är ett hotell på Manhattan i New York. Där samlades hösten 1987 ett järngäng ur det amerikanska politiska etablissemanget: före detta utrikesministrar, försvarsministrar, statssekreterare, riksbankschefer, framstående politiker, pensionerade militärer och världens rikaste man, en saudisk prins. Där fanns också nuvarande presidentens pappa George Bush d ä – och fram till den 11 september 2001 – representanter från klanen Bin Ladin.

Carlyle Group hade en briljant affärsidé: köpa upp företag som amerikanska försvarsdepartementet gör affärer med.
Carlyle Group visste precis hur man skulle sälja vapen till USA:s krigsmakt.

I USA finns halva världsmarknaden för militära varor. Den amerikanska marknaden motsvarar 3955 miljarder kronor – hundra gånger mer än Sveriges försvarsbudget.

Carlyle Fund's Assets Seized
Leaders Fail to Stop Securities Sell-Off

By Thomas Heath
Washington Post Staff Writer
Thursday, March 13, 2008; D01



A publicly traded affiliate of the Carlyle Group said yesterday that lenders were seizing its assets, sending the fund, Carlyle Capital, into insolvency.

The collapse of Carlyle Capital is the first time a Carlyle Group fund has failed and is a stinging embarrassment for the District private-equity powerhouse, which has built an international reputation with a client list that reaches around the world.

The high-profile downfall, part of the broad turmoil in credit markets worldwide, followed a week of frantic negotiations between the Carlyle Group and a number of lenders. Carlyle Group's three founders as recently as Monday were considering injecting cash into the fund as a way to usher it through the credit crisis.

By yesterday the fund had defaulted on $16.6 billion of debt and said it expected to default soon on its remaining debt. The fund's $21.7 billion in assets were exclusively in AAA mortgage-backed securities issued by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, traditionally considered secure and conservative investments, which it was using as collateral against its loans.

In a statement, Carlyle Capital said that it had been unable to meet margin calls in excess of $400 million over the past week and that it expected its lenders to take control of its remaining assets. The lenders, headed by Deutsche Bank and J.P. Morgan Chase, began selling the securities last night, according to a report on the Wall Street Journal's Web site.

The problems at Carlyle Capital have preoccupied the top leaders at Carlyle Group. The firm's founders, David M. Rubenstein, William E. Conway Jr. and Daniel D'Aniello, had been in meetings with lenders in an effort to resolve Carlyle Capital's problems, not only to protect their own investment and that of employees who have put millions of dollars into the company, but also to preserve Carlyle's Midas-touch reputation.

Forbes magazine last year estimated Carlyle's three founders to each be worth about $2.5 billion.

Carlyle Capital is incorporated on Guernsey, an island in the English Channel, and is traded on Amsterdam's Euronext exchange.

The fund was set up in August 2006 with roughly $670 million in cash from Carlyle's owners and other investors, and about $300 million in additional capital raised from a public stock sale.

The capital allowed the fund to go to banks and borrow far more, leveraging its cash investment some 20 times into the portfolio.

Carlyle Capital's prospects were dimmed by the same doubts that have upended securities linked to riskier subprime mortgages, namely whether the underlying assets were losing value and whether the homeowners would continue to make their payments.

As the market value of the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac securities has dropped, Carlyle Capital's lenders asked it to increase its cash equity from what was 1 percent to as much as 5 percent. An increase of that amount on $20 billion in loans amounts to several hundred million dollars.

The Carlyle Group last summer loaned Carlyle Capital $150 million to cover debt obligations.

Conway and Rubenstein were in New York much of this week, accompanied by a team of Carlyle Group insiders, including the company's chief financial officer, negotiating a "standstill" agreement with lenders as they tried to work out a financial solution.

The agreement would have stopped lenders from foreclosing on loans they made to Carlyle Capital.

Carlyle Capital stock closed at $2.80 in Amsterdam yesterday before the announcement, off 89 percent from its peak.
