Carroll Organization Announces Equity Investment by Hanna Capital

Investors Frank and David Hanna Contribute Capital and Expertise Supporting Further Growth of Leading National Multifamily Real Estate Investor

ATLANTA, Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Carroll Organization, one of the country's leading privately-held real estate companies focused on multifamily investment, management, and development, announced that Hanna Capital, LLC (Hanna Capital), the investment company controlled by Frank Hanna, III, and David Hanna, has made a long-term strategic investment in Carroll Organization's future growth.  With their equity stake, the principals of Hanna Capital seek to further enhance Carroll Organization's capitalization and investment firepower, and to work closely with its senior management team to offer strategic advice regarding expansion of Carroll Organization's vertically-integrated platform.

The announcement was made on behalf of Carroll Organization by M. Patrick Carroll, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, and Darren W. DeVore, Principal.

"In a very short time, Pat Carroll has built an outstanding real estate investment company with a strategy that is both disciplined and entrepreneurial, and a thoroughly professional team to execute on a business plan that creates long-term value," said Frank Hanna, III.  "Our investment is an endorsement of the Carroll Organization's potential for even greater achievements, and we look forward to a fruitful partnership."

"I'm extremely pleased that astute investors like Frank and David Hanna believe in what we've built and what we intend to do as multifamily real estate investors in the future," said Mr. Carroll.  "We are poised to expand our acquisitions of institutional-quality rental apartments in those U.S. markets that show strong job growth and favorable demographic trends, while continuing to develop our internal infrastructure and operational capabilities.  This new financial and personal commitment from the Hannas is the best kind of boost we could ask for, at the best possible time."

Carroll Organization has completed over $400 million of multifamily acquisitions within the past 18 months, and expects to pass the half-billion dollar mark by the end of the second quarter.  The company sources many of its deals "off-market" directly from developers, but has also become known within the brokerage community as a go-to buyer that performs.

At the same time, Carroll Organization is engaging in extensive planning to fine-tune its business plan and develop the best possible platform.  In coordination with Mr. Carroll, Mr. DeVore is applying his extensive past experience in investment management to broaden Carroll Organization's investor relationships while also improving operations and team coordination.

"We intend to capitalize on increasing demand among institutional investors in the multi-family sector and grow quickly, but thoughtfully," Mr. DeVore said.  "Carroll Organization started out as an entrepreneurial business, and we don't want to lose the drive and spirit associated with that.  However we are finding ways to harness that power within a structure that will ultimately provide the best results for our investors."

Mr. DeVore is a seasoned investment professional who previously held senior positions at Artisan Partners, an independent investment management firm focused on providing high value-added, active investment strategies on a global basis, and PIMCO, one of the largest fixed income managers in the world.  At Artisan, Mr. DeVore was one of the architects of Artisan's explosive growth from startup to leading global investment manager.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected. Wearables open new pathways that facilitate the tracking, sharing and storing of consumers’ personal health, location and daily activity data. Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...
A completely new computing platform is on the horizon. They’re called Microservers by some, ARM Servers by others, and sometimes even ARM-based Servers. No matter what you call them, Microservers will have a huge impact on the data center and on server computing in general.

This is a new category of computing platform that is available today and is predicted to have triple-digit growth rates for some ...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications?

Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
