Corvex And Related Comment On The Results Of CommonWealth REIT's Annual Meeting

Stocks in this article: CWH

NEW YORK, May 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Corvex Management LP ("Corvex") and Related Fund Management, LLC ("Related"), today issued the following statement regarding the decision by CommonWealth REIT (NYSE:CWH) to re-appoint Joseph L. Morea to CommonWealth's Board of Trustees after he failed to receive the requisite votes for reelection.

"It is alarming that CommonWealth's Board would take a mulligan and re-appoint a director who did not receive support of shareholders for re-election to the Board.  Shareholders sent a resounding message that they are displeased with the status quo – followed by an undeniable response from the Board that they have complete and utter disregard for their rights and will stop at nothing to further the Portnoys' self-serving agenda.  To be clear, we are not attempting a hostile takeover, but, rather are pursuing the only path to put an end to CommonWealth's continued value destruction and egregious corporate governance practices.  We strongly urge all shareholders to support our consent solicitation to remove the entire Board."

A copy of Related's and Corvex's consent solicitation materials can be obtained at www.shareholdersforcommonwealth.com or by calling D.F. King & Co., Inc., our proxy solicitor, at 1-800-714-3313.
