In each of 2009 and 2011, Mr. Kay oversaw two recapitalizations totaling $3.7 billion of the Company's debt. Prior to forming Capital Automotive REIT, Mr. Kay was employed by the public accounting firm of Arthur Andersen LLP for approximately 10 years. While at Arthur Andersen LLP, Mr. Kay provided clients with consultation regarding mergers and acquisitions, business planning and strategy, and equity financing. Mr. Kay also has extensive experience in capital formation, roll-up transactions, and public offerings. Mr. Kay is a member of the board of directors of Summit Hotel Properties, Inc. (NYSE: INN), a premium-branded limited-service and select-service hotel investment company.
