Reits: Mergers and Acquisitions
Since the early 1990s, the market capitalization of REITs has increased from about $10 billion to over $1 trillion, and M&A transactions involving REITs and UPREITs have changed the corporate and real estate landscape. REITs: Mergers and Acquisitions is a new and important guide to this growing area of law.
Covering both fundamental and advanced issues, the authors discuss: structural considerations, directors' duties, documenting the deal, financing, tax considerations, friendly and hostile transactions, defensive techniques and the processes for selling or taking REITs private. REITs: Mergers and Acquisitions provides essential discussion of how the customs of corporate and real estate transactions differ and how conflicts involving letters of intent, due diligence, exclusivity periods and contingencies to the deal can be resolved.
At a time of dynamic deal activity in the REIT industry, corporate and real estate lawyers, REIT CEOs and CFOs, investment bankers, analysts, accountants and other professionals will all benefit from the strategic guidance this new book offers.
