On or around 09/04/2018 (Notice of voluntarily dismissal)
Filing Date: June 13, 2018
According to the Complaint, Gramercy Property Trust ("GPT" or the "Company") is a REIT, which is an investor and asset manager of commercial real estate. The Company's operating segments include Investments/Corporate and Asset Management. The Company is engaged in acquiring and managing single-tenant, net leased industrial, office, and specialty properties. The Company focuses on income producing properties leased to tenants in markets in the United States and Europe. The Company earns revenues through rental revenues on properties that it owns in the United States and asset management revenues on properties owned by third parties in the United States and Europe.
On May 7, 2018, GPT issued a press release to announce the Proposed Transaction, under which Blackstone Real Estate Partners VIII ("Blackstone") will acquire all outstanding common shares of Gramercy for $27.50 per share in an all-cash transaction valued at $7.6 billion.
The Complaint alleges that on, June 11, 2018, the Board authorized the filing of a materially incomplete and misleading preliminary proxy statement (the “Proxy”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), in violation of Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act. Specifically, the Proxy contains materially incomplete and misleading information concerning the valuation analyses performed by the Company’s financial advisor, Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC (“Morgan Stanley”), in support of their fairness opinion.
This case was voluntarily dismissed on September 4, 2018.

About the Company & Securities Data
"Company" information provides the industry and sector classification and headquarters state for the primary company-defendant in the litigation. In general, "Securities" information provides the ticker symbol, market, and market status for the underlying securities at issue in the litigation.
In most cases, the primary company-defendant actually issued the securities that are the subject of the litigation, and the securities information and company information relate to the same entity. In a small subset of cases, however, the primary company-defendant is not the issuer (for example, cases against third party brokers/dealers), and the securities information and company information do not relate to the same entity.
