Munger Tolles Obtains Federal Injunction Blocking Proposed TCW-Carlyle Transaction on Behalf of Client EIG Global Energy Partners

EIG Global Energy Partners (EIG) today announced that it has been granted an injunction by the U.S. District Court in the Central District of California blocking the proposed acquisition of The TCW Group by investment funds managed by the Carlyle Group, together with TCW’s management, from Société Générale of France pending the resolution of a related arbitration claim filed by EIG. In granting the injunction, the Court found that EIG “had a strong likelihood of success on the merits as against both TCW and TAMCO.” EIG’s complaint alleged that the proposed transaction runs afoul of certain consent rights granted to EIG as part of its consensual spin-out from TCW in 2009.

R. Blair Thomas, Chief Executive Officer of EIG, said, “We’re obviously very pleased with the Court’s decision and agree completely with the Court’s analysis of the law and facts at issue in this matter. It’s unfortunate that it has come to this, but each of TCW, Carlyle and Société Générale were fully aware of this issue when they decided to recklessly announce a transaction that infringes upon our rights.”

EIG is a leading institutional investor to the global energy sector with $10.3 billion under management as of September 30, 2012. EIG specializes in private investments in energy, resources and related infrastructure and was formerly the Energy & Infrastructure Group of Trust Company of the West. During its 30-year history, EIG has invested over $14 billion in the sector through more than 290 projects or companies in 33 countries on 6 continents. EIG’s clients include many of the leading pension plans, insurance companies, endowments, foundations and sovereign wealth funds in the U.S., Asia and Europe. EIG is headquartered in Washington, DC, with offices in Houston, London, Sydney, Hong Kong, Seoul and Rio de Janeiro.

EIG is represented in this litigation by the law firm of Munger, Tolles & Olson LLP.

  • Yet Another Unlicensed Contractor Debacle 2017/07/10
    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them. But they dragged out […]

  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]

  • Writing our obit is a bit premature… 2017/04/06
    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here. We’ve been a bit busy frying other fish.  If you consider yourself a progressive, you’ve already read and possibly even recognized our work elsewhere. We will be continuing those projects and check in here as not to neglect […]

  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]
