Green Street Revamps Corporate Governance Scorecard

Published 06/01/2015

As was highlighted in the recent attempt by Simon Property Group (SPG) to acquire Macerich (MAC), most REITs incorporated in Maryland have the ability to classify the board of directors (and thus fend off an unwelcome suitor) whenever they want.

Green Street in the News: Starboard Real Estate Primer on Darden

Published 04/01/2014

Green Street's Advisory & Consulting group recently completed an in-depth valuation analysis of Darden Restaurants, Inc.'s (NYSE: DRI) real estate holdings for Starboard, a sophisticated hedge fund client.  The analysis included a detailed review of each of Darden's locations. Using Green Street's proprietary data and industry contacts and knowledge, in combination with publicly-available information, our consulting team derived valuation estimates for the company's owned and leased real estate.  Starboard used this information as part of a publicly-filed presentation to argue for a sale or spin-off of the Company's real estate to enhance shareholder value.
