CommonWealth REIT Responds To Keith Meister Of Corvex Declining Board Seat Offer

CommonWealth REIT (NYSE: CWH) today made the following statement in response to Keith Meister of Corvex Management LP, or Corvex, declining an invitation to join the CWH Board:

Board Statement:

“The CommonWealth Board is disappointed that Keith Meister of Corvex declined our invitation to join the Board and work with us constructively for the benefit of all CWH shareholders. Corvex’s response is further evidence that Corvex and the Related Companies are pursuing a hostile takeover of CWH for their own benefit and are not committed to advancing the best interests of and creating value for all CWH shareholders.”

“We are pleased to have recently added two highly qualified, Independent Trustees to the CWH Board, and in light of Keith Meister’s rejection of our invitation to join the Board, the Nominating and Governance Committee will continue to work with Korn / Ferry International to identify additional Independent Trustee candidates.”

CommonWealth REIT is a real estate investment trust that primarily owns office properties located throughout the United States. CWH is headquartered in Newton, MA.
