18:13 EDTTGTMacy's considered, rejected sale/lease-backs in past, WSJ says
Macy's (M) executives have considered sale/lease-backs "over the years" and have come to negative conclusions, reports the Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar with the company. The report comes in the wake of Starboard Value pressuring Macy's to spin off its real estate, and sources said the activist investor sees several options, including a REIT, a Hudson’s Bay’s-style real estate partnership, a sale/lease-back, or borrowing money against the properties. Separately, a source said Target (T) is still reluctant to relinquish control over its real estate. Reference Link

11:19 EDTPREPreferred holders unlikely to prefer improved AXIS bid for PartnerRe, CTFN says
After AXIS Capital (AXS) and PartnerRe (PRE) announced enhancements to the terms of their proposed merger, a person with firsthand knowledge of the situation told CTFN that large stakeholders with preferred shares are still likely to view EXOR's bid, which gives the chance to "cash out with [a] clean all-cash bid...at a higher valuation," as the more attractive option.

10:44 EDTPREPartnerRe trying to avoid negative proxy views with delay, CTFN says
After PartnerRe (PRE) announced Friday that it has pushed out a shareholder vote on its planned merger with AXIS Capital (AXS) to August 7 from July 24, an individual with firsthand knowledge of the situation told CTFN that the move was made because the company knows it must "seriously sweeten" the deal to win over shareholders and proxy advisors. CTFN added that the source said the motive for rescheduling was to force proxy firms ISS and Glass Lewis, which were expected to issue recommendations Friday after the close, to pause, with BMO Capital analyst Charles Sebaski noting that a company wouldn’t force a pause unless it was "expecting an unfavorable recommendation.” Reference Link
