Volatile market fails to impact CMBS business.

In the past several weeks, notwithstanding the present issues in the CMBS market, Carlton Advisory Services has closed, rate locked, or had committed over $2 billion in debt and equity transactions, the firm announced.

Carlton's extensive market relationships coupled with clients' commitment to close transactions have propelled the firm's active pipeline during a turbulent month, the firm said.

Consistent with Carlton's significant and diverse deal pipeline, the firm recently has closed or rate locked transactions including debt advisory, development financing and entity level fund raising, as well as an international resort debt and equity recapitalization.

These transactions represent a diverse geographic portfolio, Carlton said. They include raising equity for a West Coast industrial fund, financing a trophy office tower in the Midwest and an international debt and equity recapitalization in Costa Rica, as well as core and development financing in the heart of Manhattan and San Francisco.

Despite widening spreads and adverse market conditions, Carlton has maintained its leading role as a force in completing equity and debt transactions. Recently closed or rate locked transactions include the following:

* $350 Million Development Financing for Ultra Luxury Hotel and Hotel/Condominium in New York--Carlton has arranged a commitment for $350 million financing for the as-of right development of a five star luxury residential and hotel development in Manhattan.
