08:15 EDTGGPMacerich adopts classified board structure, stockholder rights plan
Macerich (MAC) announced that its board unanimously approved two governance changes to ensure that all stockholders have the opportunity to realize the long-term value of their investment in the company and are protected from coercive takeover attempts. As permitted by the Maryland General Corporation Law, the board has adopted a classified board structure pursuant to which directors will be assigned to one of three classes, each serving three-year terms. In order to emphasize that the classified board is solely intended to protect stockholder value and not intended to be a permanent feature of the company's corporate governance, the company has committed to review the continued need for the classified board structure in 2016. In addition, the board has adopted a limited duration stockholder rights plan, effective March 17, and authorized a dividend distribution of one preferred share purchase right on each outstanding share of Macerich's common stock. If not redeemed or otherwise exchanged, the Rights Plan is limited in duration and will expire on the date of the company's 2016 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. Macerich's Board of Directors elected to implement these governance changes in response to the unsolicited takeover proposal announced by Simon Property Group (SPG) on March 9. In its proposal, Simon Property Group announced that it has entered into an agreement to sell selected Macerich assets to General Growth Properties (GGP). In addition, on March 12, James Barkley, General Counsel of Simon Property, sent a letter to Macerich indicating that Simon was contemplating the nomination of five dissident candidates to stand for election at Macerich's 2015 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. The Macerich Board believes this partnership raises serious antitrust concerns as it is a concerted effort by the two largest companies in the industry to acquire the number three company. As a result, the Board believes it is vital that it take proactive measures to protect stockholder value and prevent the accumulation of stock by any group that might seek to force the sale of the company.
