Cushman & & Wakefield Purchases Out NorthMarq JVs in 4 US Markets

Global CRE Business Rolling Up 10 NorthMarq Workplaces; Likewise Acquires Toronto-Based Advisory Company

Cushman & Wakefield is buying out its joint-venture partner to take complete ownership of its top quality operations in Minneapolis, Seattle, Salt Lake City and Las Vegas from NorthMarq Cos., a private holding business owned by the Minneapolis-based Pohlad household.

In a different transaction revealed Tuesday, Chicago-based Cushman said that it has acquired Toronto-based 20 VIC Management Inc., one of Canada’s leading industrial realty advisory and management firms.

In the United States, Cushman will obtain 10 workplaces with 750 employees which in aggregate, manage nearly 50 million square feet of residential or commercial property. The acquisition will bring Cushman & & Wakefield NorthMarq (CWN) in Minnesota, one of the Twin Cities’ largest business brokerage and property management companies, completely under the corporate umbrella. Cushman will likewise purchase out NorthMarq’s interest in Cushman & & Wakefield Commerce (CWC) operations and workplaces in the Las Vegas, Salt Lake City and Seattle markets.

Cushman & & Wakefield did not divulge regards to the U.S. acquisitions but stated the sale, based on customary closing conditions, is anticipated to close within the next 3 weeks. Leadership groups in the four markets will stay in place, the company said in a declaration.

In the statement, Eduardo Padilla, CEO of NorthMarq Cos. (formerly Marquette Property Group), stated NorthMarq believes there’s “a logical and engaging reason to sell our operations to Cushman & & Wakefield at this time.”

“The industry is combining, with advanced customers needing a smooth platform, regardless of location or service,” Padilla said. NorthMarq Companies and NorthMarq Capital are not consisted of in the transaction.

Cushman & & Wakefield, among the biggest worldwide CRE services companies with revenues of $6 billion, is widely speculated in the industry to be exploring an initial public offering that could be introduced as early as the existing quarter. The company, marking its 100-year anniversary as a brand name, has 45,000 staff members in more than 70 countries with company operations that include leasing, asset services, capital markets, facility services, international occupier services, investment and possession management, task and advancement services, and appraisal and advisory services.

Jeff Eaton, president of Cushman & & Wakefield NorthMarq, that includes Cushman & & Wakefield NorthMarq (CWN) and Cushman & & Wakefield Commerce (CWC) operations, will expand his leadership role to include Cushman’s North Central Area, which includes oversight of Chicago, Minneapolis, and Detroit operations. Eaton will report to Cushman & & Wakefield East Region President Shawn Mobley.

Eaton has actually led NorthMarq through a number of organizational changes since ending up being president of NorthMarq Real Estate Solutions in 2008, including the 2009 acquisition of the property management division of Opus Corp.; the 2011 launch of NorthMarq’s joint venture with Cushman & & Wakefield, and the acquisition of CWC in 2013.

Cushman also did not release regards to its closed acquisition of 20 VIC Management, a boutique firm that recommends an exclusive group of pension funds, personal equity firms and high-net-worth financiers. The move considerably broadens Cushman’s Canadian existence, including its entry into the Canadian home management organisation, with 20 VIC handling more than 21 million square feet on behalf of a few of the country’s leading institutional and personal financiers.

George Buckles and Randy Scharf, who co-founded the business in 1995, will join Cushman as executive handling directors of possession services.

Mobley tells CoStar that the NorthMarq acquisitions will help Cushman support service lines and geographical coverage recognized as part of a “space analysis” following the business’s $2 billion acquisition by the group led by private-equity firm TPG from Italy’s Exor MEDSPA and merger with DTZ in September 2015.

“We did our research and found some white area and locations in which to grow, which ultimately led us to deals where we presently have alliance or JV relationships, but think we must maintain owned offices,” Mobley said.

Both the NorthMarq and 20 VIC transactions include a significant property management element, Mobley included.

The 20 VIC acquisitions is the very first venture into Canadian residential or commercial property management for Cushman. Like other large CRE service providers, Cushman intends to grow its global home and facilities management service to enhance more volatile sales and renting profits with a constant and long lasting source of recurring earnings.

“Home management holds up well throughout the realty cycle. It’s a strong performer during great times and bad,” Mobley kept in mind.

“It’s a great balance between the very best of DTZ and the best of Cushman & & Wakefield, “Lickerman, who formerly served in the exact same function for DTZ, tells CoStar News. “In every market, we’ve been fortunate enough to land the very best from each firm, and developed a combined management group that takes us forward.”

DTZ and Cushman & & Wakefield closed their merger early Wednesday, creating a new company with a combined overall of $5 billion in earnings and 43,000 workers, with more than 4.3 billion square feet under management and $191 billion in deal value. A consortium headed by DTZ and backed by TGP Capital obtained the three-quarters stake in Cushman owned by Exor HEALTH CLUB, Italian holding business for the Agnelli household, for a reported $2 billion. Cushman’s new owners also include PAG, among the largest Asia-based alternative financial investment managers; and the Ontario Educators’ Pension (OTTP), among Canada’s largest pension.

The combined company’s U.S. operations will be headed by Joe Stettinius, president, Americas, who previously served because function for DTZ. Previous Cushman President Edward Forst, who was anticipated to step down, is no longer with the company, officials validated.

“We’ve been working on the combination planning for months, so we’ve got an excellent running start,” Lickerman stated, who offered color on the leadership team’s conferences with significant customers, potential customers and leading producers for the companies in each market. “They’re remarkably compatible companies.”

Lickerman, who was previously CEO for Jones Lang LaSalle’s Corporate Solutions group for the Americas before taking over as DTZ’s new chief executive in 2013, also said DTZ and Cushman & & Wakefield are extremely complementary organizations.

“We’re doing the ideal things, talking to individuals and getting them comfortable with the platform,” he stated. “We’re getting an extraordinary quantity of interest from experts calling as and asking to join. People from both huge shops and small companies see what we’re doing and the momentum we have actually attained.”

A Look at How DTZ and Cushman & & Wakefield ' s U.S. Market Protection Stacks Up

Combination Factors to consider Loom Large in Pending Merger and Include More Than Just Headcount in Markets Where DTZ, C&W and Former Cassidy Turley Share an Existence

Backed by global investment giant TPG Capital, DTZ’s plan to buy Cushman & & Wakefield for a reported $2 billion is the latest and by far largest in a series of top-level moves ushering in significant changes throughout the united state industrial real estate services landscape.

Offered the sheer size and scale of such a significant merger, it is only to be expected that some dislocation will happen over the next couple of months for brokers and other staff in markets where both Cushman and DTZ already have huge footprints.

However, based on a recent snapshot of workplaces and personnel for the 2 law firms, the number of significant U.S. markets in which Cushman and DTZ both have a major existence is remarkably restricted– just 4 of the leading 15– Boston, Chicago, Dallas and the San Francisco Bay Location– which would appear to additional boost the case for the mix.

“Anytime you have a big or even mid-sized merger, there’s going to be overlap, and the Cushman & & Wakefield/DTZ [combination] is probably going to be tougher in the cities where Cassidy Turley had an excellent existence,” stated Brandon Dobell, an expert with William Blair & & Associates who follows the office property services market.

“The law firms are fortunate because the U.S markets for leasing and sales activity is quite strong, as that probably allows a bit more freedom around workers options,” Dobell said. “But where you have customer overlap– for example, a Cassidy Turley broker and a Cushman broker managing the exact same customer in the same city– there is likely going to be some discomfort.”

Cushman & & Wakefield maintains a large numbers advantage in markets like Atlanta, where it utilizes about 350 brokers and personnel versus less than 70 for DTZ/Cassidy Turley, relative late-comers to the marketplace, according to a recent study of workplaces and personnel listed online sites of the firms in 15 huge U.S. markets.

Other dominant Cushman markets consist of Minneapolis, New Jersey and New york city City, C&W’s flagship market, which has grown to an estimated 540 professional workers following Cushman’s current acquisition of Massey Knakal Realty Solutions, inned comparison to about 150 for DTZ. In addition to its world headquarters at 1290 Avenue of the Americas, Cushman operates offices at 275 Madison Ave., 100 Wall St. downtown, 205 Montague St. in Brooklyn, and a workplace in Queens, in addition to its JRT Realty affiliate at 780 Third Opportunity.

In Chicago, Cushman has about 160 specialists, which increased following its acquisition of J.F. McKinney & & Associates soon prior to the merger with DTZ was announced. DTZ lists about 70 market-based staff members (not including senior business management), at its three Chicagoland workplaces, including its worldwide headquarters structure at 77 West Wacker Drive, an office at 3440 S. Dearborn St. and a workplace in suburban Oak Brook.

That being said, DTZ holds its own edge in specific U.S. markets, thanks in big part to the acquisition of Cassidy Turley. DTZ controls in St. Louis, a former headquarters area for Cassidy Turley that serves much of the Midwest and has more than 800 staff members in 7 offices throughout the market as DTZ’s largest operational center.

Likewise in Washington, D.C., DTZ employs about 450, compared with less than 100 for Cushman & & Wakefield. DTZ keeps more than 260 mainly former Cassidy Turley personnel in its Northern California operations– the San Francisco Bay Area, Silicon Valley and Sacramento, compared to 175 for C&W. In Phoenix, DTZ employs about 155 brokers and other expert staff, while C&W utilizes less than 70, according to the web sites.

Moody’s Investors Service weighed in on the recommended merger last month, singling out integration risks and increased monetary leverage in modifying DMZ’s credit outlook from steady to unfavorable.

Nevertheless, in spite of the apparent combination obstacles, Moody’s kept in mind several positive elements to the merger as well. DTZ will certainly enhance its size and scale throughout the extremely fragmented CRE services market, and its annualized incomes will enhance to more than $5 billion from about $3 billion currently. The ratings company also noted DTZ’s U.S. existence was previously thought about the weakest of its three worldwide regions, even with the addition of Cassidy Turley, which had a strong but decidedly regional company.

“The 2 law firms also have complementary strengths throughout their service platforms and locations, placing DTZ for potential market share gains,” Moody’s analyst said.

Likewise, while it’s well-understood that the vice presidents or handling directors in charge are usually compensated based on growth and will therefore be expected to keep the best rainmakers and let the weakest ones go, Dobell stated more than headcount and production comes into play in these cases.

Sales require contraction or attrition might not be as unpleasant in markets where one company has a dominant and complimentary existence in various home types or service lines, such as leasing, sales or loan origination, the William Blair expert said.

A main currency for any realty broker is individual relationships, and overlap among the individual contacts of DTZ and C&W brokers may invite dispute within the ranks of the brand-new company, according to Andrew Maguire, senior realty attorney and shareholder with Radnor, PA-based McCausland Keen & & Buckman’s property group. Nevertheless, the Cushman/DTZ transaction is not simply an issue of which company holds a numbers advantage in a particular market.

“Sector expertise is so typical within the biggest brokerages that there may well be chance for a complementary workplace among different specialized groups such as workplace, commercial, retail and others, post-merger,” Maguire said.

It will be intriguing to see whether the brand-new business continues to develop such supplementary services as threat management and possession management beyond the core brokerage and occupant representation companies, once the consolidation is full, Maguire stated.

In any case, adds Dobell, time will likely bring more changes following the existing upcycle, which he stated has rather masked the effects of the ongoing consolidation trend in CRE services.

“It’s okay to be stuck in the middle market in the united state now since of how great the market environment is, but when development slows or the number of deals reduces, which will ultimately occur, the people in the middle are in huge difficulty with corporates, huge owners and big occupiers,” Dobell said. “Those that write the checks will certainly continue to concentrate on a little number of vendors and a decline will magnify that, as it has in a lot of other expert services sectors.”

Fight At the Top: What a Merged Cushman/DTZ Holds in Shop for Worldwide CRE Solutions

Projected Numbers Suggest It’s Possible, but Challenge will certainly be to Quickly Incorporate and Compete Versus Full-Service CRE Design Perfected By CBRE and JLL

The news this week that DTZ will certainly purchase Cushman & & Wakefield from Exor S.p.A. in an offer valued at $2.04 billion has produced a flurry of expert speculation over how the combination will influence the worldwide balance among the top CRE services law firms worldwide.

While Los Angeles-based CBRE Group, Inc. continues to be the clear industry leader, with a wide advantage in global earnings, headcount, number of workplaces and geographical reach, followed by JLL, a DTZ-Cushman & & Wakefield combination does appear establish a third international competitor, a minimum of by the numbers projected by Cushman and DTZ this week.

The consolidated Cushman/DTZ appears to draw even with JLL in gross earnings and go beyond the Chicago-based company in the variety of business offices. In the property/asset management business line, Cushman could vault past both CBRE and JLL, in big part due to the strength of DTZ’s 1.9 billion square feet of building management portfolio and its 1.3 billion square feet of facilities management on behalf of institutional, government, corporate and private clients worldwide.

Cushman decreased to comment even more on post-merger forecasts beyond exactly what was contained in its May 11 release, which said the combined company will certainly run under the internationally known Cushman & & Wakefield brand and boast profits of over $5.5 billion, with more than 43,000 workers and more than 4 billion square feet under management.

“With [former CBRE president] Brett White’s influence and the chance to combine the global footprints of C&W and DTZ, there are definitely some margin opportunities,” William Blair & & Co. equity expert Brandon Dobell informs CoStar News.

“(So) Cushman is a modest hazard to CBRE and JLL, however only if they can keep their people and convince the marketplace that the bigger business can’t do things in addition to Cushman/DTZ can– that’s not a simple task,” he included.

Cushman & & Wakefield’s parent business reported an EBITDA margin (incomes prior to expenses excluding tax, interest and depreciation) of 8.4 % in 2014, far below CBRE’s 14 % and JLL at 12 % however similar with the 9 % reported for in 2014 by Colliers International and its openly traded parent, FirstService Corp.

. Any DTZ-Cushman employees shed in the near term will be due to overlaps with DTZ in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. In the united state, however, “Colliers and possibly Avison Young, which have been the most aggressive of all the companies in obtaining skill in the U.S. and Canada, will benefit from the talent shift,” Dobell stated.

He said CBRE and JLL have actually been extremely effective at offering the full-service model to worldwide customers and Cushman will need to do the same, which will not be simple up until after the combination is full most likely in 2017. In any case, Dobell it’s challenging to tell because the general public markets do not have a clear view of Cushman’s company.

“Over the medium and long term, it definitely puts some pressure on CBRE and JLL, however we have so little visibility into Cushman’s revenue sources in terms of geographies, service lines, etc. that it is difficult to tell where the pressure might be felt the most or least,” Dobell said.In the important U.S. market, Cushman & Wakefield has actually 63 totally owned offices together with 66 workplaces operated through alliances, and two joint-venture offices, according to Cushman &’s Brad Dugard, managing director, business communications for the Americas. JLL has 90 business U.S. offices, consisting of LaSalle Investment Management operations, and utilized just under 18,000 individuals in the united state at the

end of 2014, according to company monetary files. CBRE has more than 150 U.S. workplaces, leaving out 31 affiliate offices, and employed more than 27,000 individuals in the Americas at the end of 2014, according to company information. Mitch Germain of JMP Securities kept in mind that the Cushman/DTZ pairing creates sensible competition for CBRE and JLL at a time when mergers and acquisitions activity has actually ramped up significantly in the home services sector in current quarters– most just recently the revealed$1.5 billion acquisition by CBRE of the Johnson Controls third-party property management Global Labor force Solutions company. Cushman would be the 3rd significant acquisition in less than a year crafted by the investment consortium of TPG Capital, PAG Asia Capital, and Ontario Educators’Pension. The consortium obtained DTZ from UGL Ltd., about a year earlier and settled its$550 million purchase of Cassidy Turley previously this year, getting a much coveted widening of its U.S. footprint. That said, the other significant players are hardly standing still, actively purchasing service lines and local presences in the U.S. and worldwide, Germain says. CBRE, JLL and FirstService/Colliers have actually all put aside substantial dry powder for external development, finishing

approximately 10-12 transactions each year. Trading platform BGC Partners has likewise aimed to increase its CRE platform through current acquisitions.
