Commercial Mortgage Giant Created

Walker & Dunlop acquires CWCapital

Sept. 5, 2012

By staff

A new top-10 commercial mortgage lender has emerged from a merger deal that combines two commercial real estate firms. The transaction beefs up an existing mortgage conglomerate.

Walker & Dunlop Inc. announced Tuesday that it completed the acquisition of CWCapital LLC.

The unit was purchased from Fortress Investment Group LLC subsidiary CW Financial Services LLC for $234 million. The purchase price included $80 million in cash and $154 million in stock. It leaves Fortress as Walker & Dunlop's largest shareholder and gives Fortress two seats on Walker & Dunlop's 11-member board of directors.

CW Financial Services was originally acquired by Fortress in 2010.

Fortress has amassed a portfolio of mortgage-related investments that includes significant interests in Nationstar Mortgage Holdings, Newcastle Investment Corp. and Springleaf Finance Corp.

Last year's combined CRE originations from Walker & Dunlop and CWCapital was $7.7 billion.

"Based on the 2011 Mortgage Bankers Association rankings, the combined production would have placed Walker & Dunlop as the second-largest multifamily lender and eighth-largest commercial real estate lender in the United States," the statement said. "Walker & Dunlop is also now the 11th-largest commercial/multifamily mortgage servicer in the nation, with a commercial loan servicing portfolio exceeding $30 billion."

Former CWCapital Chief Executive Officer Michael Berman will serve as executive vice president of Walker & Dunlop.
