Case Studies

Case Studies

Apollo Funds’ joint venture with New Fortress Energy formed Energos Infrastructure, a maritime platform with critical infrastructure to power countries around the world.

Carving out Opportunities in Communications

In October 2020, Apollo-managed funds acquired Lendlease’s US-based telecom unit. The platform included a portfolio of operating cell towers and towers under development. The entity soon rebranded itself as Parallel Infrastructure, the name it held prior to being acquired by Lendlease in 2017.

Parallel Infrastructure is a leading Build-to-Suit (BTS) tower operator with close to one thousand macro cell towers across the US. The company counts major wireless carriers as customers including AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Dish.

The 2020 transaction leveraged Apollo’s deep carve-out expertise and marked the further expansion of Apollo’s investment activity in communications infrastructure via an established platform with strong industry credibility. Additionally, it represented a rare cell tower portfolio acquisition opportunity – with a strong asset base and a robust contract backlog – that also offered the potential for strong future growth.

Investment to Expand Renewable Energy in Maryland

In August 2020, Apollo-managed funds committed to invest up to $265 million to acquire an equity stake in US Wind, and fund development and construction costs associated with a major offshore wind energy project off the coast of Maryland.

Partnership to Promote Sustainability

In August 2021, Johnson Controls – a global leader for smart, healthy and sustainable buildings – and funds managed by Apollo formed a strategic partnership to provide sustainability and energy efficiency services to help customers address decarbonization and operating cost goals for their buildings.

The venture is intended to provide customers across the United States and Canada with performance-based energy efficiency and smart buildings services at no upfront costs and with predictable monthly fees.

The sustainability services will leverage Johnson Controls' decades of experience in energy efficiency performance contracting, along with its OpenBlue smart buildings technology and services, including the recently launched OpenBlue Net Zero Buildings as a Service. Apollo brings its infrastructure expertise and fund capital to offer customers flexible solutions to meet their energy savings and decarbonization objectives.
