|FOREST CITY REALTY TRUST, INC. filed this Form DEFM14A on 10/12/2018|
Under rules adopted by the SEC, we and our intermediaries, such as brokers, may satisfy our obligations to deliver this proxy statement by delivering a single copy of this proxy statement to multiple stockholders sharing the same address. This householding saves costs and reduces waste. Unless you have given instructions to us that you wish to receive a separate copy of this proxy statement for each stockholder sharing the same address, you may receive a single envelope containing this proxy statement but separate proxy cards (or brokers instruction cards) for each stockholder sharing the address. Once you have received notice from us or your broker that it will be householding communications to your address, that practice will continue until you are notified otherwise or until you revoke your consent.
If at any time you no longer wish to participate in householding by your broker, you should notify your broker. If we household this proxy statement and you no longer wish to participate in the householding, or at any time you wish to receive a separate copy of this proxy statement, you may contact Investor Relations, Forest City Realty Trust, Inc., 127 Public Square, Suite 3100, Cleveland, Ohio 44114, or by calling (216) 621-6060. If you would like to only receive a single copy of this proxy statement at your address, contact us at the address above or contact your broker.
The enclosed proxy for the special meeting is being solicited by our Board. The cost of soliciting the proxies on the enclosed form will be paid by us. Our Board has engaged MacKenzie Partners to assist in the solicitation of proxies for a fee of $25,000, plus reimbursement of reasonable expenses.
In addition to the use of the mail, proxies may be solicited by the directors and their agents (who will receive no additional compensation for those services) by means of personal interview, telephone, facsimile, e-mail or other electronic means, and it is anticipated that banks, brokers and other institutions, nominees or fiduciaries will be requested to forward the soliciting material to their principals and to obtain authorization for the execution of proxies. We may, upon request, reimburse banks, brokers and other institutions, nominees and fiduciaries for their expenses in forwarding proxy material to their principals.
Pursuant to Maryland law and our Bylaws, only the business specifically designated in the notice of the special meeting may be transacted at the special meeting.
