Brookfield Will Take Property Unit Private for $6.5B

Brookfield Asset Management Inc. (Brookfield) said Thursday it had reached an agreement to take Brookfield Property Partners L.P. (BPY) private in a deal valued at US$6.5 billion. First proposed in January, the deal to acquire all of BPY’s outstanding limited partnership units at US$18.17 per unit represents a 10% premium on the original offer.

The independent members of the board at BPY, Toronto-based Brookfield’s flagship listed real estate company, unanimously approved the transaction. Brookfield said holders of exchangeable limited partnership units of Brookfield Office Property Exchange LP may make the same elections as BPY unitholders.

Brookfield CFO Nick Goodman said the deal “allows for greater optionality in how we manage our portfolio of high-quality real estate assets.” It’s subject to approval by a majority of BPY unitholders and by the Ontario Superior Court of Justice.

BPY had about US$88 billion in total assets as of Dec. 31, Bloomberg News reported.
