Another Portnoy company in play

  • "During the past five weeks, we have witnessed a sickening series of events unfold whereby the Select Income REIT (SIR +2.3%) trustees have deliberately taken multiple steps to protect their own interests at the expense of shareholders," writes Lakewood Capital, a 5.8% owner of the company. "We have spoken with several other significant SIR shareholders and they share our outrage."
  • Lakewood demands an immediate cessation of further equity offerings, an expansion of the board, and the repurchase of stock from CommonWealth REIT (CWH -1.2%), Select Income's largest shareholder (and no longer under Portnoy control).
  • The Select Income board and management notes receipt of the letter.
