I take this time out to introduce Warehouster to all of you there. Warehouster is a developer and asset manager in the sunrise sector of organized warehousing, primarily, in India. Having had the extensive experience in executing the marquee warehousing transactions, I thought the time was ripe to exploit the exposure towards something with a scale and with a vision. With a successful and incredible track record in fund-raising and superior exit returns to the investors, opportunities were there to go full throttle. I have managed private REITs in the past and that was one incomparable and valuable stint that paved the way for my journey towards something more valuable, more challenging and more fulfilling. Warehouster is founded on three basic tenets: Globally Compliant Development, Quality Tenancy, and Profitable Exits to the stakeholders. The kind of trust our investors have bestowed upon this upcoming and growing entity speaks for itself. We have already acquired properties that will keep us focused on the task at hand in the medium to long term. We have built a solid portfolio of covetous warehousing assets across the length and breadth of India, wherein we are in the process of deploying the fund already raised. But the buck doesn’t stop there; we are ambitious enough to take this entity among the top three in the next couple of years. We have a versatile and experienced team on board that is already on course for scale and scale with quality and vision. With commitment, with vision, with the hours we put in; we are here to serve this growing demand in the organized warehousing. Fingers are crossed and the game is on.
