Article - Bruce Bronster Quoted in Law 360
MAY 28, 2015

Bruce Bronster was quoted in an article published by Law 360 entitled "Public REIT Market Poised For Bustling M&A Run." Bruce provided his insights regarding M&A activity in the REIT market, as well as activists and investors not being afraid to jump into the market.

  • And that activism streak pushing for M&A in the REIT space is here for the foreseeable future, in part because low interest rates are giving activist investors more firepower to charge ahead with a plan to unlock value, according to Bronster.
  • After all, if you're paying 12 or 15 percent interest on capital that only locks 5 to 20 percent of a company's value, "it becomes sort of a zero-sum game," Bronster says. "But if the interest rate is very low, you can take a stab. Then you need to unlock less value. With interest rates apparently low for a long period of time, I think this activity will continue to be fairly robust."
