Under the Merger Agreement, Annaly’s tender offer will not begin until after a 45 day period during which CreXus will be able to seek alternate purchasers who would be willing to purchase control of CreXus or its assets on terms that the Special Committee determines to be more favorable to CreXus and its stockholders than those on which Annaly has agreed to purchase the CreXus shares it does not own.The announced transaction follows a proposal Annaly made on November 9, 2012 to acquire all the CreXus shares it does not already own for $12.50 per share. The increase in the price Annaly will pay resulted from negotiations between Annaly and the Special Committee of CreXus directors.
