DLF Says India’s Credit Market Turmoil Will Help Its Home Sales

(Bloomberg) -- The turmoil in India’s credit markets, brought on by defaults at a major infrastructure financier, will benefit the nation’s largest developer, allowing it to sell homes while peers struggle to get money to finish their projects.

  • A unit of DLF and Hines have agreed to jointly develop a commercial project in Gurugram, near New Delhi. The 51:49 partnership will result in more than 2.5 million square feet of commercial space. The transaction is expected to be closed in the current quarter, DLF said Thursday
  • Hines is a U.S.-based privately owned global real estate investment, development and management firm with $116.4 billion of assets under management
