NEW YORK, April 2, 2014

NEW YORK, April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Madison International Realty, a
leading real estate private equity firm, announced the final closing of its
latest fund, Madison International Real Estate Liquidity Fund V, LP (Madison
V), with $825 million of equity commitments from a global roster of
institutional investors.

The final closing of Madison V exceeded its $750 million target, according to
Ronald M. Dickerman, Madison's Founder and President.

"We are very pleased with the robust and broad support we received from
investors around the world who continue to find our unique class A, direct
secondary strategy both differentiated and compelling. Madison V is our third
consecutive fund to be oversubscribed," Dickerman said. "Our success in this
latest capital raise underscores our continued ability to source, underwrite
and execute on investments which deliver an asymmetric risk/return in the
class A real estate space." 

Madison International Realty specializes in acquiring partial ownership and
joint venture interests in class A properties and portfolios in primary
markets in the U.S., U.K. and Western Europe. The firm also provides joint
venture equity to owners, sponsors and investors who are seeking to monetize
existing equity positions, restructure balance sheets, or to replace existing
capital partners.

Madison V has already deployed approximately 40% of its capital commitments
into closed investments including One California Plaza, a 42-story, class A
office tower in downtown Los Angeles and the Saks Fifth Avenue retail store in
Union Square in San Francisco. International investments include Songbird
Estates Plc, which controls London's Canary Wharf, the New Century House
office building in Dublin, Ireland, and the Statoil Office Complex in Oslo,
Norway.

"By utilizing our well-established product sourcing channels, we have already
identified a dynamic pipeline of prospective investment opportunities and we
anticipate maintaining this pace of activity for the balance of the year,"
Dickerman said.

Madison V involved a global capital raise to a diverse group of investors
worldwide, he said. In addition to U.S. public pension funds, corporate
pensions, insurance companies, endowments, foundations and family offices,
Madison investors include institutions in Europe, Middle Eastern sovereign
wealth funds and institutional investors in Asia and Australia.
