JLL Acquires Sage Capital Advisors, LLC in Mid-Atlantic

Firm Expands Diversified Capital Markets Business in Washington, DC Region

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - Jul 5, 2016) - As part of a strategic move to expand its leading full-service Capital Markets business in the Mid-Atlantic, JLL (NYSE: JLL) today announced it has acquired Sage Capital Advisors, LLC ("Sage Cap"), an investment sales, equity and debt advisory firm based in Chevy Chase, Maryland. Sage Cap has extensive expertise in joint ventures, recapitalizations, investment sales, structured finance, construction loans and permanent financings across all property types, with a specific focus on trophy institutional investment sales and debt and equity expertise for large-scale mixed-use developments.

"Sage Cap's extensive capital markets knowledge and deep institutional and private client relationships perfectly complement JLL's platform, allowing us to give greater focus to the full spectrum of capital solutions for our clients," said Steve Collins, Head of JLL Capital Advisors.

Sage Cap was formed in 2012 by John Duffy, Robert Donhauser and William Asbill. The trio joins JLL's Mid-Atlantic Capital Markets team, as are Andrew Asbill, Elizabeth Johnston, and Maggie Duffy. Members of the firm have completed more than $21.5 billion in transactions with both foreign and domestic investors.

"Sage Cap's boutique, client-centric business model allowed us to be intimately involved with a select group of best-in-class owners," said Duffy. "While this strategy has served our clients well, our abilities to meet or exceed their goals will be significantly enhanced by aligning with a global real estate services firm. The culture, level of professionalism, business lines and global platform inherent within JLL are unequalled in the industry. It was a logical and, therefore, easy decision for us."

The firm's in-depth local market and global investor knowledge delivers the best-in-class solutions for clients -- whether a sale, financing, repositioning, advisory or recapitalization execution.
