|FOREST CITY REALTY TRUST, INC. filed this Form DEFM14A on 10/12/2018|
We are asking holders of shares of common stock to consider and vote on a proposal to approve the merger and the other transactions contemplated by the merger agreement. For detailed information regarding this proposal, see the information about the merger and the merger agreement throughout this proxy statement, including the information set forth in the section entitled The Merger and the section entitled The Merger Agreement. A copy of the merger agreement is attached as Annex A to this proxy statement.
Vote Required and Recommendation
Approval of the Merger Proposal requires the affirmative vote of a majority of the votes entitled to be cast by the holders of the outstanding shares of common stock as of the close of business on the record date. Because the required vote for this proposal is based on the number of votes the holders of shares of common stock are entitled to cast rather than on the number of votes actually cast, failure to vote your shares (including failure to give voting instructions to your broker, bank or other nominee) and abstentions will have the same effect as voting against the Merger Proposal.
OUR BOARD RECOMMENDS THAT YOU VOTE
FOR THE MERGER PROPOSAL.
