Carlyle's profit on TCW deal may be lower than expected, Reuters reports

Carlyle Group LP's (CG) planned $780 million takeover of TCW Group, a unit of Societe Generale (SCGLY), could be less lucrative than thought due to the investment manager's financial ties to buyout firm EIG Global Energy Partners LLC, a TCW document to its lenders shows, reports Reuters. About a sixth of TCW's profit comes from payments made by former unit EIG, which spun out of TCW in 2011, according to the document data.
