AMREP Announces Receipt Of 'Going Private' Proposal At $12.00 Per Share

PRINCETON, N.J., Sept. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AMREP Corporation (NYSE: AXR) today reported that Nicholas G. Karabots, the beneficial owner of approximately 60% of AMREP's outstanding common stock and the Vice Chairman of AMREP's Board of Directors, has submitted to the Board of Directors a proposal for the merger of AMREP with a company controlled by Mr. Karabots.  The proposal indicates that certain other stockholders of AMREP could participate in the transaction with Mr. Karabots.  Under the terms of the merger proposal, the remaining holders of AMREP's common stock would receive cash consideration of $12.00 per share.  The proposal submitted is not a definitive offer, and there can be no assurance that any definitive offer will be made, that any agreement will be executed or that a definitive offer, if made, with respect to the proposal or any other transaction will be approved or consummated. The transaction as proposed by Mr. Karabots would be contingent upon, among other things, approval by the Board of Directors and stockholders of AMREP in accordance with Oklahoma law and AMREP's governing documents, without any additional voting requirements.  A copy of the proposal is included as an exhibit to the amendment to Mr. Karabots' Schedule 13-D filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission earlier today, which can be accessed online at

The Board of Directors of AMREP cautions AMREP's stockholders and others considering trading in its securities that although the Company has received the proposal, no decisions have been made regarding AMREP's response to the proposal.  The Board of Directors has appointed a special committee consisting of three of AMREP's independent directors, who are also independent of Mr. Karabots, to consider the merger proposal.   The special committee has the authority to engage independent financial and legal counsel in connection with its evaluation of the proposed merger.
