“There have been significant portfolio changes this quarter in the real estate sector, with several new stakes, discussed below, and one corporate transaction. In particular, here we provide an update on the status of our investment in Brookfield Property Partners (“BPY”). In our latest quarterly letter, we noted that on January 4 the company received a takeover bid from Brookfield Asset Management (“BAM”) for the remaining shares it does not control, at a price of 16.5 dollars per share, which seemed too low to us. Hence, our intention was to decline the takeover bid and hold our shares, awaiting a potential increase in the offer price that BAM had in fact historically made in other similar acquisitions. Finally, on April 1, BAM announced it had increased its offer by 10% to 18.17 dollars per share. In this case, shareholders will have a choice of cash, BAM common stock or BPY preferred stock, limited to a maximum of 50% cash for the total offer, 42% for BAM common stock and 8% for BPY preferred stock. The offer price represents a discount to BPY’s NAV of 32%, very much in line with the historical average at which this vehicle has historically traded.”
