The proposed acquisition of Monogram Residential Trust, Inc. (“MORE” or the “Company”) (NYSE: MORE) by a newly formed perpetual life fund led by Grey Real Estate Partners (the “Affiliates”) is the subject of an examination by WeissLaw LLP. On July 4, 2017, MORE announced it entered into an agreement to be acquired by the Affiliates in a transaction valued at approximately $3.0 billion. Under the terms of the agreement, the Company’s stockholders will receive $12.00 in cash for each MORE stock they own.
WeissLaw is investigating whether MORE’s Board acted to maximize stockholder value prior to entering into the agreement. Notably, the Company recently announced positive financial results. In May, MORE issued a press release reporting a 12.2% sequential increase in total proportionate NOI. The Company also reported net income attributable to common stockholders of $76.0 million, a remarkable recovery from the net loss of $8.3 million MORE reported in the same period of the previous year.
Given these facts, WeissLaw is investigating whether MORE’s Board acted in the best interests of MORE’s public stockholders to maximize stockholder value prior to entering into the agreement.
