Abstract. Let M be a complete nondegenerate locally standard CR manifold. We show that a necessary and sufficient condition for M to be compact is that the Lie algebra of its infinitesimal CR automorphisms is semisimple. In general we realize M as a Mostow fibration over a compact CR manifoldB whose universal covering is a Cartesian product of Hermitian symmetric spaces and compact nondegenerate standard CR manifolds.
