EXECUTIVE CHAIRMAN’S PERSPECTIVE

Strategic Plan Delivering Results

2012 represented the second full year of the execution of Cushman & Wakefield’s long-term strategic plan, with specific emphasis on increasing market share across our platform. The year was also a reflection of the focus and drive of our employees to enhance our delivery of consistent, high-quality service to our clients across the globe, and we have begun to see great results. Despite global economic uncertainty over the past several years, we had a very strong 2012 with the fourth quarter being a major contributor to our full year success. With our solid revenue performance for the year and continued discipline on cost, EBITDA increased 17% annually from the $93 million in 2010 to our current $128 million in 2012. In the fourth quarter of 2012 alone, EBITDA grew 76.2% year-over-year. From a top-line perspective, Cushman & Wakefield had double-digit growth in gross revenue in the fourth quarter year-over-year, driven by solid performance in all regions and service lines. Our $2.05 billion gross revenue for full year 2012 was the second highest in the firm’s history.

CARLO BAREL DI SANT’ALBANO Executive Chairman

From a bottom line perspective, our net income results for the full year 2012 improved $28 million to more than $43 million year-over-year. Many of the initiatives of the strategic plan have begun to accelerate as we continue to attract the highest quality talent across board. In 2012, we hired more than 1,700 employees, which follows the 1,900 we hired in 2011. In addition to our solid financial performance, Cushman & Wakefield continued to maintain a strong balance sheet. I thank our clients for the trust they continue to place in us to provide advice and execute real estate transactions on their behalf.

01 Bridging Physical and Online Worlds Omni-channel retailing gives the customer what he or she wants – an integrated experience available across shopping channels, including mobile devices, computers, physical stores, television and catalogs. It’s still new – and it’s more global – with global supply chains, best practices and retailers pursuing new customers in emerging markets. At the same time, even as global mobile and internet usage spreads, consumer attitudes and expectations, as well as physical and digital infrastructure, will ensure retail remains in many ways a local game.

ADAPTING TO RELENTLESS CHANGE A pressing challenge for retailers is to integrate physical and internet operations in order to compete in the growing omni-channel environment. Staggering Growth: E-commerce compound annual growth rate 2011-2016 70% 57.3%

BRIDGING PHYSICAL AND ONLINE WORLDS

Paradigm Shift Global online retailing has increased by at least 18% per year in the last three years (Euromonitor). New strategies are about change: different store footprints, urban locations, internet integration, globalization and logistics strategies focused on ever-faster replenishment and delivery. Retailing has and will always come down to Customer Satisfaction.

CASE IN POINT: MOBILE STORES

Shopping While Waiting for the Bus Walmart Canada and Procter & Gamble launched a mobile store allowing Torontonians waiting in bus shelters to shop online with their mobile device and have items shipped to their home for free. Located in 50 bus shelters, the mobile store, which ran for four weeks, made it easy to purchase items from Walmart in categories such as baby and beauty.

Retail Perspectives JOHN STRACHAN Global Head of Retail

“Retailers that are challenged right now are those with large legacy portfolios designed to trade in the ’80s or ’90s. They either need trimming around the edges or major surgery.”

MATT WINN Americas Retail Services Leader

“Globalization, urbanization and internet integration are three major trends. Retailers are looking globally for new customers and ensuring their services and infrastructure are able to meet new demands. They’re also locating in urban cores with new formats and creating direct growth. We’re seeing the true integration of the internet and physical stores.”

JAMES HAWKEY Managing Director, Retail Services, Asia Pacific

“Asia is no longer an option for global retailers. They recognize that you have to have a strong presence in all major markets. Asia’s tough. It’s not homogeneous like the U.S. There are a dozen countries you have to understand. Those already there want to know where to expand, those who aren’t there want to know about market entry – where do they go, Hong Kong or Singapore, and should they use partners.”

CASE STUDIES

Trends & Forecasts Retailers are rapidly moving into downtown locations with smaller, more focused formats, while also entering new emerging markets around the world. Linked to fulfillment, the store will be a key to the supply chain. It will be a hub for information – internally, from technology to personnel, and externally, from interactive store windows and displays to center-wide systems. Collection points may be in-store, centralized within shopping centers or placed at collection hubs that evolve into a new form of anchor store.

Lease Flexibility With mobile POS or self-service developing at different speeds in different countries and sectors, flexibility supports differences and change.

CLIENT PERSPECTIVE

“We are extremely excited to be opening our second NYC flagship in the old Toy Building. This location offers a strong retail location, great retail space and easier access for local New York residents.” JUSTIN TRIPP Vice President, LEGO Systems, Inc.

Bringing Toys Back to the Toy Building LEGO SYSTEMS, INC. Location: New York, NY, U.S. C&W Services Used: Leasing

Getting a Grip on the New Rules Entering new markets can be tough. Retailers need a strong and consistent support platform to introduce global brands. Local customs and languages, along with laws and political systems, must be carefully navigated.

FIRST RULE Know thy customer to make the best decisions about channel integration and usability.

SECOND RULE Partner with a retail and logistics expert with the market knowledge, networks and track record needed to guide your successful entrance or expansion. C&W’s global perspective and street-level experience supports every retail aspect in every major world market.

Cushman & Wakefield has advised LEGO on site selection for urban stores in North America since 2009. In 2010 the team selected LEGO’s NYC flagship location at Rockefeller Center, which has enjoyed tremendous success. The team recently completed a transaction for LEGO’s second NYC flagship at 200 Fifth Avenue on the corner of 23rd Street. LEGO will replace Fidelity Investments, upon the natural expiration of their lease term, at the premiere retail corner overlooking the historic Flatiron Building and Madison Square Park. 200 Fifth Avenue is an historic building known as the Toy Building, and houses the Headquarters of Tiffany & Co. and Grey Advertising, along with the successful ground floor operation of Eataly and Marimekko. The new LEGO flagship will be instrumental in extending the flatiron retail corridor.

GLOBAL BUSINESS STRATEGIES ADAPT TO THE CHANGING WORLD OF TRADE

Global Strategies for Local Markets

Trade Perspectives MARIA SICOLA Executive Managing Director, Head of Americas Research

Shifting global labor and consumer landscapes are driving change across commercial real estate sectors, including warehouse and distribution, manufacturing and retail. Rising wages in Asia, transportation costs and advanced automation are just some of the factors that have manufacturers rethinking their business models. Location changes are occurring. Some companies are moving all or parts of their operations back to North America or locating in Eastern Europe or emerging new markets. Meanwhile, as middle class growth explodes in Asia, global retail chains are sourcing opportunities to enter regional markets. E-commerce is also pressuring retailers to update their strategies – and the rise of urbanization is seeing an increase in smaller, more focused store formats. Sophisticated delivery systems including high-tech distribution centers in local and regional markets are key elements of the new picture. It’s all part of the Changing World of Trade. 12

“We are experiencing a new and pressing paradigm that spans the entire supply chain. On one end, consumer demand patterns are changing retail formats, service levels, order sizes and product life cycles at an unparalleled rate. On the other, the dynamics of material and labor supply are evolving at an equally staggering pace. Connecting these areas are significant logistics challenges, which, all in, have created real volatility in critical supply chain variables.”

MARK WEBSTER Partner, Head of National Logistics & Industrial, London

“Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) remains the location of choice for companies looking to move manufacturing operations to lower cost areas, especially as demand from Asia continues to build. Technology has become increasingly important, as logistics companies need to offer seamless transactional capabilities. E-commerce is a massive driver with next day or better delivery options now being offered by many. This puts pressure on real estate and supply chain strategies.”


CASE STUDIES

Winning Industrial Real Estate Strategies

1

 ompanies in sectors with C high-customer service demands are expanding their number of regional distribution centers and cross-dock facilities to reduce the overall distances to customer destinations. These facilities will be increasingly urban in order to satisfy the growing trend towards same-day fulfillment, bolstering demand around the edge of major cities for smaller, in-fill spaces located closer to consumers.

2

With the growth in internet access, technological advances will increasingly drive business change. Leading logistics companies will embrace technology and develop new ways of using property.

3

Large occupiers are consolidating space and finding efficiencies both within their four walls and through collaboration where complementary supply chains exist. Increasingly, we will see retailers, producers, shippers and logistics companies trying to extend their reach, extend their span of control and vertically integrate. Vertical integration promotes technology and process adjacency; more work will be done closer together. This is expected to drive greater demand for space.

One-Million-Square-Foot Blend/Extend GENCO Location: Fort Worth, TX, U.S. C&W Services Used: Leasing Cushman & Wakefield was retained to represent GENCO with lease advisory and negotiations on their significant three-building, one-millionsquare-foot industrial campus. GENCO was paying above market rates with almost no flexibility on three adjacent facilities. The facilities had three different lease expirations ranging from six to 18 months remaining. All of the buildings required a significant amount of renovations and improvements in order to make the facilities functional for the long term. Cushman & Wakefield creatively negotiated coterminous expirations, ensuring longer term leases and multiple options to expand or terminate. The new lease agreements maintain maximum flexibility going forward and capture the necessary improvement dollars to address GENCO’s business and operational requirements. As a result of our client-focused, creative approach and considerable negotiations, the client saved over $5 million starting immediately.

Facilities Management for 13 Sites ROBERT BOSCH MEXICO Location: Multiple locations in Mexico C&W Services Used: Corporate Occupier & Investor Services To help German manufacturer Robert Bosch achieve its goal to reduce regional operational costs and increase sales, Cushman & Wakefield was selected as a strategic partner to deliver Facilities Management Services for 13 manufacturing sites in Mexico. In order to ensure consistency, Cushman & Wakefield appointed an account manager to centrally manage regional teams and implemented a hybrid model combining remote and on-site service.

GLOBAL BUSINESS STRATEGIES ADAPT TO THE CHANGING WORLD OF TRADE

Trends & Forecasts DUAL OPERATIONS

ASIA’S RESILIENCE Despite continued global economic challenges and the related manufacturing slowdown in China and other major Asian economies, industrial, warehousing and logistics market activity has remained steady and is gaining momentum.

CROSS BORDER FIRE With U.S. and European brands expanding their presence in growth countries like China and Brazil and cross-border retail on fire around the world, there is a greater urgency to accommodate changing distribution networks.

EMERGING FORMATS The “click-and-collect” option, where customers can order on the internet and collect their purchases from designated locations such as an existing store, is a growing trend in Europe, notably France and the UK.

RESHORING GAINS TRACTION

14

In 2005, U.S. manufacturing wages were almost 25 times that of China. Today, that wage gap multiplier is under 10 and could be under five by 2015. Mexico’s cost of labor is beginning to mirror China’s. Reshoring is likely to gain traction as the “total landed cost gap” of offshore manufacturing narrows, and labor costs become more globally balanced.

Multiple, well-placed distribution centers minimize the time and distance spent on the final leg of delivery. Many retailers are setting up dual operations backed by mega-distribution facilities that support both online and in-store inventory. Locations must be close to affordable labor and have access to rail, highways and air transportation.

WHAT’S NEXT? 3-D PRINTING? Thanks to the web – which has enabled a digital, community approach to innovation and sourcing – and the availability of desktop-manufacturing technology such as 3-D printing, regular people will be able to do what only factories could do before. Some say this will kick off a new era in manufacturing, where success is more dependent on innovation and entrepreneurship than on cheaper labor, energy or real estate.

SPACE SHORTAGE One of the biggest challenges facing industrial space users across the Americas is the shortage of quality space, as technological advances have rendered many facilities obsolete.

GLOBAL MARKETS GEAR UP FOR INCREASED TRADE As production and manufacturing become more local to meet delivery timelines, the average distance that transported goods move will continue to shorten. In the Americas, transportation is becoming horizontal and holistic, moving end-to-end freight through increasingly seamless intermodal connections. In Europe, financial investment is focused on upgrading the unevenly developed infrastructures of Central and Eastern Europe to keep pace with state-of-the-art advancements common in Western Europe. Massive infrastructure investment is underway throughout Asia as rapid urbanization in most Asian economies is driving up the volume of freight and passenger transport across regional railways, expressways, distribution centers, ports and regional hubs.


CASE STUDIES

Trade Perspectives JOHN C. MORRIS Industrial Services Lead, Americas

“We think the current paradigm in supply chain management can be roughly aggregated into three categories: logistics efficiency, location strategy and technology management. Labor, utilities, infrastructure and their impact on the success of a supply chain are the forces that connect real estate strategy with supply chain strategy. With increased fuel costs and a decline in labor arbitrage savings in off shoring, manufacturers are thinking differently about location. With any new technology comes the adoption challenge. The question is, does a new technology make sense and what is the pay back?”

PETER ZHANG Director, Industrial Consulting, Shanghai

“Asia’s aging population is a growing consideration. UN research shows that the number of people 65-plus in the region will reach 14% by 2025 and 21% in 2050, from less than 10% now. Because of this, we see more and more life science related investment, and fast growing demand for high-quality R&D manufacturing space in the region.”

Supply Chain Transformation JOHN LEWIS PARTNERSHIP Location: Buckinghamshire, UK C&W Services Used: Leasing John Lewis was in an existing 650,000-square-foot unit on G Park, Milton Keynes. Cushman & Wakefield was appointed to negotiate the acquisition of an additional 670,000 square feet located close to the first unit as the buildings needed to be joined by a conveyor belt link. The acquisition is a key part of Programme Q, the Partnership’s biggest-ever supply chain and systems transformation project that involves significant redundancies and future property disposals. Online sales at John Lewis have passed the $1.5-billion mark on a rolling 52-week basis, alongside a successful launch of a multi-million-pound web platform. The milestone comes a year ahead of the retailer’s forecast. This has led to the additional investment in their E-Commerce Fulfillment Platform, which runs exclusively from Milton Keynes.

03 Aligning Real Estate with Business Objectives Density, consolidation, sustainability, collaborative workspaces, outsourcing, global portfolio management – everything is on the table as business responds to change, and looks to its real estate as a leading force in meeting long-term competitive business objectives. Companies that tie real estate solutions across single or multiple locations into top business priorities experience both increased productivity and bottom-line financial results.

UNLEASHING NEW COMPETITIVE EFFICIENCIES To gain added value and quantifiable results, companies empower their Corporate Real Estate teams by following such steps:

1. Understand the portfolio 2. Identify the business goals 3. Develop the right organization 4. Create a governance model 5. Leverage service providers Read more on page 18 17


03

ALIGNING REAL ESTATE WITH BUSINESS OBJECTIVES

Key to Leading Change Rapid global change is being driven by a multitude of factors that are altering the way business is done. Companies are seeking ways to streamline operations and, at the same time, they’re responding to workforce demographics that are having a profound impact on how they plan, manage and invest for the future. The concept of Corporate Real Estate (CRE) contributing more strategically to the business has gained undeniable momentum. CRE is now playing a key role in strategic business initiatives including talent management, cost containment, workplace design, and corporate branding and culture.

Expanding Market Share When Cushman & Wakefield acquired Cousins Property Service in the fall of 2012, we acquired a property management portfolio of high-profile properties in Atlanta, GA, and Dallas, TX. More importantly, more than 100 highly respected professionals in property management, agency leasing and construction management joined our firm, burnishing our brand and reputation in two key U.S. markets. The acquisition brought seven properties in Atlanta and 17 in Dallas under the Cushman & Wakefield banner, greatly expanding our market share in both cities. 18

Five Steps to Aligning Your Corporate Real Estate and Business Goals

1

Understand the portfolio

To offer strategic value to the business, the CRE must have a comprehensive understanding of the portfolio, its financial risks and obligations, and where opportunities exist.

2

Identify the business goals

Is it the goal to align total location costs to a percentage of revenue? Is it to secure space through design or other options? Or is it to drive collaboration and innovation across its business units and global markets?

3

Develop the right organization

The CRE identifies the proper structure and resources needed to support an expanded role. Identifying who will liaise with business units and how the communication will occur are critical priorities.


CASE STUDIES

4

Create a governance model

Changing a CRE’s operational focus requires a Corporate Governance model that identifies the methodologies and guidelines for decision-making.

5

Leverage service providers

Partnership models are explored, allowing the CRE to transition some, or all, of its responsibilities for the physical real estate to free resources to focus internally on how the combination of real estate strategy, workplace design, and controlling costs assists the business.

In addition, a Rapid Response Team was formed that includes 46 professionals across the country.

ALIGNING REAL ESTATE WITH BUSINESS OBJECTIVES

OUTSOURCING PERSPECTIVES Firms are exploring different types of outsourcing models and using the expertise of their outsource service providers more efficiently. Many are alleviating themselves of tactical real estate responsibility altogether and focusing on better serving their core customers.

Winning Occupancy Strategies

Below are questions and findings from C&W’s 2012 Client Perspective Survey, indicating where many firms stand on the issue of outsourcing.

31%

30% STREAMLINING

WEIGHING PRIORITIES

Leading companies are taking steps to centralize or streamline CRE functions so they can better adapt to continuous shifts in the business landscape. Priorities include aligning real estate with company business units, centralizing decision-making and processes through corporate governance programs and focusing on the employee experience.

An effective real estate strategy must take into account long-term business growth or contraction and office relocation contingencies.

DECENTRALIZING FUNCTIONS Advanced technology offers some occupiers the ability to move certain functions to less expensive non-central submarkets, while maintaining a cohesive flow of information and communication between head and satellite offices.

Occupiers should consider how many new employees they intend to hire and also what business functions they foresee expanding or contracting. Planning must be viewed from the prism of how business forecasts may require workforce adjustments and therefore real estate needs.

DIFFERENT GENERATIONS As demographics change, the challenge is to design the right environment that supports different generations with different work habits. Flexibility has never been more important. Technology will continue to be the ultimate driver of change, influencing how and where we work.

04 As Markets Recover, Investors Cast a Wider Net Stability and high liquidity, along with an improving business cycle, are key global occupier and investment market themes. A 14% rise in volumes is forecast for 2013, taking the global investment total back above $1 trillion for the first time since 2007. North America and parts of Asia are leading the way. Cap rates continue to compress in many gateway markets and are stabilizing at or near pre-recession levels in the top few global cities. Meanwhile, investors are prudently moving up the risk-reward spectrum in search of yield, slowly stabilizing second-tier markets in recovering economies, though the weakest markets remain out-of-favor. Lending and loan purchases also remain attractive options, along with recapitalization strategies.

It will be a favored market for investment in 2013, with a 15%-20% volume increase forecast for the U.S. and Canada – the region’s key drivers. Mexico may again outperform expectations, although Brazil will see more of the spotlight as eventdriven infrastructure is developed. Construction activity is rising in multifamily and in select office and industrial markets. Investors remain focused on multifamily and gateway office markets, followed by prime retail and industrial markets. Modest cap-rate compression is anticipated, led by the better assets in second-tier markets as investor risk tolerance grows and finance availability improves with the CMB market rebound.

24

EMEA Investor strategies for the U.S. are likely to include buying vacancies in top-tier markets or acquiring top-tier assets in secondary markets, with select new construction in the tightest markets. In Canada, development may be a favored route. Expect the securitization market to again become an active source of financing for large assets like malls and office towers, as well as for commodity real estate in secondary markets. With strong appetite for “B” piece buyers, CMB volume may reach $100 billion in 2013. With many peak-pricing debt maturities scheduled to occur in 2013, expect the debt markets to be active. Mezzanine financing and preferred equity growth will help “fill the gap” between proceeds available through new senior loans and existing debt.

EMEA is not out of the woods yet: growth looks likely to remain low and volatile and performance will be very diverse market by market. However, improved stability will breed greater confidence in occupier and investor markets, and activity is expected to improve, with a 5% increase forecast for investment. A lack of product and affordable finance will restrain activity in the short term, but stock from banks, the public sector and corporate owners will create more opportunities.


Asia Pacific North and West Europe will continue to outperform the South. Eastern markets will be mixed, but Russia and Turkey will see strong growth and other emerging markets will be favored by cost-conscious occupiers and yield-hungry investors. While core markets will remain in high demand, their boundaries will expand over the year. The funding gap is very slowly being filled by new lending sources (including capital from the Americas), but remains an area of opportunity for investors. Occupier markets will see limited net growth, but more replacement, improvement and consolidationdriven demand that focuses on efficient space and underpins a modest return of rental growth in under-supplied prime markets across all sectors.

Asian investment sales are almost half of global totals, driven by domestic demand and land sales. Volumes are forecast to rise 15% -20%, while stimulus measures, infrastructure investment, export growth and retail spending will drive modest rental growth and some degree of yield compression. High liquidity will boost the Asian market this year, but increased diversity between regions and sectors will remain the story, as more modest levels of growth become the new norm.

Investor demand will continue in core markets in Australia and Japan for risk-adverse foreign players, increase in China, and also broaden to other areas such as India, Malaysia, Indonesia and Vietnam for those seeking growth. As global banks follow regional banks in expanding, office demand will get a boost in major gateway cities. Retail markets will experience strong turnover growth and retail brands will increasingly be impacted by trends such as urbanization and globalization. Logistics may be the hottest sector overall, with strong demand and investment activity in key hubs such as Osaka, Tokyo, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Singapore.

Confidence Takes Hold GREGORY S. VORWALLER Executive Vice President and Global Head of Capital Markets

“We forecast that investment sales and acquisitions volumes will rise by about 15% in 2013 over last year to reach about $1 trillion globally. Looking at it by global region: in the Americas, the equity and debt markets are flush with capital in search of relative yield, which should result in a healthy transaction market, especially in the U.S.; in APAC, the resumption of the lending market in China should help bolster activity levels in the entire region; and in EMEA, we are beginning to see some bright lights with increased bidder interest for quality deals, along with an emergence of capitulation among financial owners that should result in more opportunity.”

05 Driving Urban Revival in Cities Around the World In major cities around the world, downtown revitalization and changing live-work habits have spurred leasing activity, office development and out-of-the box collaborative workplace designs. Thanks to smart urban planning, downtown markets have become magnets to educated, techsavvy people, who want to live, work and play close to home. With companies locating closer to talent, competitors and sector clusters, they’re not only responding to the needs of stakeholders, but they’re also playing a leading role in transforming their urban communities.

NEW ERA FOR WORLD CITIES URBANIZATION: Prior to 2011, suburbs in the U.S. had consistently outpaced big cities since 1920, with the rise of the automobile. Now, central areas in top cities are leading growth.

HIGHER DENSITY: 70% of 500 CRE executives surveyed by CoreNet Global indicated that the gross square feet per person in their organization would drop to 100 square feet or less over the next five years, down about 55% from the current industry average.

GLOBAL BOOM: World construction activity will accelerate by $6.3 trillion or 70% by 2025 with activity driven by rising populations in emerging economies and increasing urbanization. China, India and the U.S. will lead the surge. 29

DRIVING URBAN REVIVAL IN CITIES AROUND THE WORLD

Sun Shining Bright on Lower Manhattan “As co-exclusive agency broker for The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and the Durst Organization, we are engaged in playing a central role in the success of One World Trade Center – and witnessing the transformative impact this iconic building is having on its new tenants, all of Manhattan, and you could say the world.” TARA STACOM Executive Vice Chairman, New York

ONE WORLD TRADE AT THE HEART OF CHANGE

The Lower Manhattan economy is growing more diverse, with an increase of media and other creative companies, as well as technology firms. These trends are visible in relocations, occupancy and leasing. In 2012, 17 transactions of over 100,000 square feet were completed in Lower Manhattan, nine of which were new leases and eight renewals. This includes Condé Nast signing a 133,000-square-foot expansion to take a total 1.2 million square feet at One World Trade Center. The U.S. General Services Administration also finalized a 270,000-square-foot lease in the building. This resulted in the 3-million-square-foot iconic office tower being more than 55% leased – underscoring the major contribution One World Trade Center is making to the diversity of this dynamic market.

Urban Allure Gains Traction In cities around the world, both creative-class sectors and traditional sectors are heeding the call of revitalized downtown locations. Organizations are seeking space in sustainable office buildings or retrofitted properties that offer reduced operating costs, increased density, better light and air quality, and support employee-focused occupancy strategies that attract and retain talent. A 2012 CoreNet Global survey of 500 CRE executives found that over 70% indicated that the gross square feet per person in their organization would drop to 100 square feet or less over the next five years, down approximately 55% from the current industry average. City leaders are actively encouraging downtown business growth through tax incentives, cluster strategies and infrastructure development programs. Young people, along with would-be retirees, continue to settle in central areas where jobs, housing and vibrant lifestyles are more easily accessed. Prior to 2011, suburbs in the U.S. had consistently outpaced big cities since 1920, with the rise of the automobile. Most recent census estimates reveal a changing dynamic as of July 2012. Cities with booming regional economies are growing the fastest, closer-in suburbs linked to a city with public transit or well-developed roadways are benefiting, while farther-out suburbs are seeing the lowest growth rates.

New HQ Balances Quality and Flexibility BRACEWELL & GIULIANI LLP Location: London, UK C&W Services Used: Leasing Cushman & Wakefield advised Bracewell & Giuliani on establishing a London headquarters.

Cushman & Wakefield negotiated and secured significant incentives, including tax abatements with the creative solution of deeding the owned facility to the City of Fort Worth in exchange for additional incentives. The final lease concluded with a 75,000-square-foot build-to-suit including a Purchase and Sale Agreement.

DRIVING URBAN REVIVAL IN CITIES AROUND THE WORLD

Behind the Building of a Great Brand and Great City

China, India and U.S. to Lead World Construction Growth World construction activity will accelerate by $6.3 trillion or 70% by 2025 with activity driven by rising populations in emerging economies and increasing urbanization, according to The Global Construction 2025 report from Global Construction Perspectives and Oxford Economics.

Deloitte¹s bold decision to consolidate multiple offices across the Greater Toronto Area will not only see all employees working together under one roof, but has also kicked off the development of a new 980,000-square-foot office tower, and will ultimately rejuvenate an entire city precinct. Once completed in 2015, this collaborative effort between Deloitte, Cushman & Wakefield and Brookfield will transform a neglected downtown core area in Toronto into a vibrant urban community.

While two thirds of global construction will be focused in China, India and the U.S., the authors noted that activity will increasingly be driven by Vietnam, Indonesia and the Philippines, which they termed the new Asian Tigers.

Cushman & Wakefield successfully negotiated complex lease terminations or extensions for existing locations to align with the timing of the consolidation. At the same time, our Strategic Occupancy service under CIS worked closely with Deloitte and the Brookfield design team to articulate the firm’s vision for a collaborative workplace, resulting in “out-ofthe-box” modifications to the property, which aims to achieve the highest LEED Platinum ranking.

Although China overtook the U.S. as the world’s largest construction market in 2010, the report still forecast healthy growth of 40% in U.S. construction by 2025, with the volume of construction output expected to grow by over 75% between 2012 and 2025.

Thanks to this joint effort, Deloitte will realize its vision to create a 419,000-square-foot “office campus” that taps into the buzz of a desirable downtown location and reinforces its commitment to its clients, people and SCAN FOR corporate responsibility objectives. VIDEO 32

“Urbanization is one of the largest challenges facing the human race. Some two billion additional city-dwellers are expected by 2050, giving rise to challenges around providing power, water, sanitation, housing, offices and transportation, as well as doing this sustainably and developing new cities of the future,” said the report, which was written by industry experts.

While any upturn in Europe is expected to be very weak, the UK construction sector was forecast to expand by almost double the average rate in Western Europe.

“Bracewell & Giuliani LLP’s new launch into the London legal market was fully supported by Cushman & Wakefield from the outset.

Urban Office Deal of the Year REEL FX, INC. Location: Dallas, TX, U.S. C&W Services Used: Leasing Recognized as Dallas Business Journal’s Urban Office Deal of the Year, Reel FX Inc., an award-winning creative studio specializing in animation and visual effects, secured its footprint in Dallas’s Deep Ellum submarket in July 2012. After seven years in the building, Reel FX acquired the 73,200-square-foot property to serve as its corporate creative headquarters. Cushman & Wakefield was engaged to represent Reel FX with their requirement. There were two shortlist options, but, in the end, given the firm’s deep connection to Deep Ellum – and that the City of Dallas provided compelling incentives – Reel FX was convinced that remaining in their current location represented the very best solution.

Iconic Art Deco HQ Rejuvenates Market BROWN BROTHERS HARRIMAN Location: Boston, MA, U.S. C&W Services Used: Capital Markets, Corporate Occupier & Investor Services, Leasing Cushman & Wakefield began working with BBH’s Boston requirement in 2010 to refine its real estate objectives to maximize efficiency and minimize costs while retaining a strong Boston presence. Ultimately, BBH chose to consolidate three different offices into 411,128 square feet at 50 Post Office Square, the former New England Telephone corporate headquarters. The firm will accommodate more than 2,100 employees in a fully renovated and modernized Boston icon. BBH’s 50 Post Office Square served as the catalyst for the preservation of one of Boston’s most prized Art Deco buildings.

96 Years of Unwavering Client Focus

This impressive performance was largely driven by sustained growth in our global Corporate Occupier & Investor and Valuation & Advisory business lines, and led by the Americas region. It’s a testament to our global reach that in Brazil, alone, we now have 155 million square feet under management and 2,500 employees servicing our clients. Through 2012 and early 2013, our tradition for providing client-centric service resulted in the completion of some of the largest real estate assignments in the world including: the largest industrial lease in the UK in the last two years (one million square feet for Sainsbury); the largest H&M store in the world (589 Fifth Avenue, NYC); the largest office lease in San Francisco in a decade (Salesforce.com), and two of the largest sales in Hong Kong (Monterey Court in Jardine Lookout and Kowloon Commercial Center).

JOHN C. CUSHMAN III Co-Chairman of the Board Los Angeles In the course of a year, I see a good deal of the world, traveling regularly to markets in all three regions – the Americas, Asia Pacific and EMEA – where Cushman & Wakefield does business. This gives me a unique perspective on market trends and economies, and also on our people – and the motivations that drive them. By far, the most consistent message I hear – in every corner of the globe – is that Cushman & Wakefield is a firm built for our clients – and that we have a reputation for getting things done. For 96 years, our core values have remained steadfastly focused on: • Integrity and respect; • Collaboration and trust; • Confidence and mentorship. The name Cushman & Wakefield – unlike any other in the industry – has endured the test of time for two reasons: we have put our clients’ needs first and we always put the right people and platforms in place to provide the services our clients need. For these reasons – and despite global economic uncertainty – in 2012, Cushman & Wakefield posted the second highest gross revenue in its history at $2.05 billion.

Our Capital Markets group executed many high-profile assignments including: the $230-million senior mortgage loan for 100 Church Street in Manhattan; the 99-year, triple-net lease to RXR Realty at 75 Rockefeller Plaza in NYC; the $610-million sale of 100 Federal Street Tower in Boston on behalf of Bank of America and the 302 million sale of a Junction LP’s UK retail portfolio. CIS increased revenue 6.1% globally and 16.7% in the U.S. while adding nearly 100 million square feet to its managed portfolio, which now stands at 902 million square feet. CIS gained major assignments globally and regionally on behalf of some of the world’s largest corporations and institutions, including The Crown Estate in the U.K. Valuation & Advisory, as well, had some stellar wins in 2012, with marked growth particularly in the Americas. V&A’s retail sector business in the U.S. increased by 17% and, recently, its government practice was named global vendor for a Department of State contract spanning over 130 countries. As well, in order to deliver specialized client solutions across borders and services, V&A established a Global Accounts team consisting of 57 professionals in more than a dozen countries. On a company wide basis, Cushman & Wakefield continued to invest in targeted acquisitions and key hires as part of our strategic plan. Overall, SCAN in 2012, our firm hired more than FOR VIDEO 1,700 professionals worldwide.

FINANCIALS

Steady Growth from 2009 – Positive Effects of Strategic Plan

MICHAEL J. BARTOLOTTA Executive Vice President & CFO New York It is my pleasure to offer my perspective on Cushman & Wakefield’s financial performance in 2012. This represented our second full-year of execution of key initiatives of our long-term strategic plan, including a focus on balancing the global platform to deliver high quality service and a consistent service mix across markets on behalf of our clients, with a specific emphasis on increasing market share in key markets across the globe and continued targeted expansion into key locations to fill out strategic service line and regional needs. Under difficult market conditions and while still investing in the firm’s growth initiatives, we were able to complete 2012 with an increase in year-over-year gross revenue and substantial EBITDA growth. Our management team remains focused on executing our strategic plan and enhancing market share in key markets around the globe and looks forward to taking advantage of our strong brand and the optimism for further economic recovery in 2013. From a top-line perspective, our 2012 gross revenue of $2.05 billion, which was up almost 5% over last year when adjusted for currency, represents the second highest gross revenue in Cushman & Wakefield’s 95-year history – second only to 2007, which came in at just about $2.1 billion. Our commission and service fee revenue was up almost 4% excluding the impact of foreign exchange to $1.6 billion for the year ended December 31, 2012. With our solid revenue performance for the year and continued discipline on cost, we were able to drive EBITDA to almost $128 million for full-year 2012, a 14.9% increase following a 19.7% increase in 2011 over 2010. In addition net income improved $28.3 million to $43.2 million and net debt to EBITDA was a healthy ratio of 0.8. 42

If we look at the 2012 results in a little more detail we see that gross revenue, which includes reimbursed costs – managed properties and other costs, increased $54.4 million, or 2.7%, or 4.7% excluding the impact of foreign exchange, to $2,050.1 million, while commission and service fee revenue, which excludes reimbursed costs – managed properties and other costs, increased $24.7 million, or 1.6%, or 3.8% excluding the impact of foreign exchange, to $1,597.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2012, despite the slow transactional activity due to the continued global economic uncertainty that existed throughout 2012. The growth in commission and service fee revenue and the reduction in operating expenses partially offset by an increase in cost of services sold and slightly higher commission expense drove a year-over-year increase in C&W’s EBITDA of $16.6 million to $127.7 million, as compared with $111.1 million in the prior year. This positive growth and a reduction in interest expense, other expenses and income tax expense led to an improvement in the income attributable to owners of the parent of $28.3 million to $43.2 million for the full-year 2012, as compared with $14.9 million for the prior year. Commission and service fee revenue experienced positive growth across all regions, even including the negative impact of foreign exchange movements, with the exception of EMEA, which reported a decline, primarily due to the ongoing challenging economic and market conditions. From a service line perspective, the year-over-year growth in commission and service fee revenue was driven by continued CIS performance throughout 2012, with the largest increase in the Americas, where revenue increased by $21.2 million, or 11.4%, continued growth in the V&A business, also led by the Americas region, which increased $10.1 million, or 8.4%, modest growth in Leasing and essentially flat revenues in Capital Markets. In addition to the solid P&L performance in 2012, we also continued to maintain a strong balance sheet. As of December 31, 2012, the Company’s net debt position was $99.6 million. With the full-year 2012 EBITDA of $128 million, the net debt to EBITDA ratio is only 0.8 – a strong indicator of C&W’s ability to service its debt obligations.

WORLD REGION LEADERSHIP PERSPECTIVE

AMERICAS

Clients Focus Stands Behind Solid 2012

Overall, Cushman & Wakefield delivered solid results in the Americas, posting a strong year-end finish and revenue growth in all service lines. The Americas continue to be the largest revenue region in the world for our firm. Building upon that, we hired more than 670 professionals throughout the Americas last year – and we continue to expand our footprint in the region. In addition, we executed the strategic acquisition of Cousins Properties’ services group in Dallas and Atlanta. This move alone added 122 talented professionals to our organization, while enhancing our project management and leasing capabilities in these two important markets. We also continued to grow our Specialty Practice Groups, including Healthcare, Data Center and Legal Sector Advisory, as well as our Financial Consulting and Business Consulting Groups. Our investments in these groups reflect our continued commitment to our clients to be the leading “thought and solutions leader” in the real estate industry today.

JAMES UNDERHILL CEO, Americas

CUSHMAN & WAKEFIELD GLOBAL REACH

60 COUNTRIES 253 OFFICES

At the same time, we continue to build our Alliance Program with new partnerships in Nevada, Idaho, North Carolina, California, Minnesota, Nebraska, Peru and Waterloo, Canada – further balancing our platform and service mix. By every measure, Cushman & Wakefield is creating tremendous value for our clients in the Americas and we are committed to driving even greater results in the years ahead.

EMEA

Broadening Demand

2012 was clearly a challenging year across the region. Overall, our EMEA 2012 gross revenues were down marginally by 2.4% on 2011 to US$424 million. Despite the macro economic challenges, we remained focused on executing our strategy in the region. We made significant investments in core markets such as London, Germany, Russia and Turkey, bringing in top talent and restructuring leadership teams. Across EMEA in 2012, we recruited a total of 306 employees. Our strongest performing countries were The Netherlands, Belgium, Czech Republic and Sweden, with France and Italy also putting in a robust performance. We continue to invest in and perform strongly in Valuation & Advisory and Corporate Occupier & Investor Services, which saw gross revenues increase 5.7% and 3.5% respectively (at local currency levels). Leasing remained on par with 2011, as the office sector continued to experience weaker demand, whilst retail performed well in both the UK and France compared to the previous year.

CARLO BAREL DI SANT’ALBANO Chairman of the Board and CEO, EMEA

ASIA PACIFIC

Focus on Global Delivery

Our Capital Markets performance remained flat through 2012. There were nonetheless signs of a broadening in demand as investors began to seek out more opportunities. Generally, we got off to a strong start in 2013, notably in the UK. Whilst we remain cautious, we are already reaping the benefits of the SCAN significant changes made to our business last year, and we FOR VIDEO remain focused on driving growth in line with our plan. MESSAGE

Asia Pacific is the fastest growing economy in the world – a focus area for most global companies today. Growth in this dynamic region is also being driven by our expanding domestic economies and demographic advantages. In the real estate space, companies are increasingly demanding more value and an integrated approach to minimize risk and enhance delivery efficiency. Our focus is now on global delivery and collaboration as opposed to taking a more traditional geographical view. We have successfully created a matrix organization where there are global and regional service lines that offer seamless and integrated solutions to our clients across countries. Over the last two years, we significantly expanded and restructured our regional leadership team and we added close to 700 people throughout Asia to core services lines. As a result of this renewed approach and the successful implementation of our strategic plan, our revenue has grown by approximately 65% in the last three years.

SANJAY VERMA CEO, Asia Pacific

We are now able to provide multi-country and multi-service line solutions with far greater ease and speed – a valued capability given the diversity and complexity of Asian markets. In 2012 alone, our Corporate Occupier & Investor Services team won more regional mandates than in the last five years put together from global occupier clients to provide transaction management, project management and facilities management services. Similar inroads are also being made by our Capital Markets, Brokerage and Valuation SCAN FOR & Advisory service lines. These are truly exciting times for VIDEO our clients and our firm. MESSAGE 45


SERVICE LINE LEADER MESSAGES

CAPITAL MARKETS

Confidence Takes Hold

Despite the uncertainty last year, Cushman & Wakefield successfully completed some of the most noteworthy transactions in each of our three regions. The common denominator in all of our “wins” is the highly collaborative effort we offer our clients across geographies and service lines, ensuring the delivery of best-in-class advice and execution. Our Capital Markets leadership remains focused on delivering key aspects of our strategic plan, and I’m proud to say that last year we added approximately 50 professionals to our team in the U.S. and Canada, South America, Asia Pacific and EMEA.

GREGORY S. VORWALLER Executive Vice President, Global Head, Capital Markets

CORPORATE OCCUPIER & INVESTOR SERVICES

Aligned to Our Clients’ Needs

We forecast that investment sales and acquisitions volumes will rise by about 15% in 2013 over last year to reach about $1 trillion globally. By global region: in the Americas, the equity and debt markets are flush with capital in search of relative yield, which should result in a healthy transaction market, especially in the U.S.; in APAC, the resumption of the lending market in China should help bolster activity levels in the entire region; and, in EMEA, we are beginning to see some bright lights with increased bidder interest for SCAN FOR quality deals, along with an emergence of capitulation among VIDEO financial owners that should result in more opportunity. MESSAGE

We’re proud of our measurable performance for many of the world’s leading corporations and institutions, and of our track record of 435 million square feet in wins and renewals over the past year. Our results directly reflect the performance we are able to deliver for our clients. Customized solutions and tools help real estate leaders create value for the C-Suite. Whether a growing bank needs new branches to build both clientele and brand strength or a multinational conglomerate is seeking to implement a competitive new workplace strategy, we work closely with our clients to develop and apply exciting new standards, while also carefully managing change. For investors, we approach each asset as if we were the owner, positioning properties and operating them to maximize the investment strategy. Through the integration of our top talent in asset and property management, landlord representation and our Capital Markets teams, we manage income and expenses to create both immediate and long-term value.

JOHN C. SANTORA President & CEO, Global Head, Corporate Occupier and Investor Services

46

Our diverse teams are well known for our informed perspective and command of global best practices. But what really sets us apart is our ability to listen and respond. CIS teams work with clients to delve into specific corporate priorities. We respect client cultures. We keep what’s working, and SCAN find inventive solutions when change is needed. FOR VIDEO MESSAGE


LEASING

Global and Street-Level Perspective

In 2012, our professionals completed more than 33,400 leasing transactions globally, valued at more than $46.4 billion. In addition to acting as exclusive leasing agent for many of the most prestigious properties worldwide, we also arranged the most significant and high-profile leases signed last year, including the largest industrial lease in the UK in the last two years (one million square feet for Sainsbury), the largest H&M store in the world (589 Fifth Avenue, NYC), and the largest office lease in San Francisco in a decade (Salesforce.com). In 2012, we further strengthened our leasing services in our three regions of the Americas, EMEA and Asia Pacific. Our clients looking to expand operations across borders found value in our new International Desk, offering coordinated access to focused research and knowledgeable professionals in markets around the world. Likewise, our globalized Retail Services leadership structure, with a global head of retail and three regional heads, provides added value to our retail clients who are seeking to locate in new and emerging markets. Across all asset classes, we are dedicated to providing our clients with full local, regional and global knowledge and support.

VALUATION & ADVISORY

Minimizing Value Uncertainty

There’s no durability in something that’s constantly in a state of change, and change has been the only constant in property valuation over the past decade. Markets move, cycles ebb and flow and valuations will reflect market sentiments of the day. At Cushman & Wakefield, we understand all of the uncertainty embedded in the valuation process and while we can’t eliminate it we’re doing our best to contain it. What we’re also learning as the world flattens is that global real estate investment is fostering a focused singularity in a multidimensional world. While we all share the same sun, the same moon and the same stars, we don’t share the same resources, market transparency or valuation standards. So we’re minimizing uncertainty in how we approach our practice in these key areas: • Technology – We’re deploying global technology platforms that align our deliverables and create access to global intelligence. • Competencies – We’re pushing out asset-class specializations across geographies.

JOHN D. BUSI Executive Vice President, Global Head, Valuation & Advisory

• E xperience and Bench Strength – Our greatest advantage is working with a seasoned staff of professionals who’ve experienced how cycles and markets behave. We also access deal professionals who calibrate the collective consciousness of buyers and sellers, lessors and lessees, SCAN owners and operators – and we process that intelligence FOR VIDEO into meaningful analytics.
