Thomas Properties' long-term financial outlook is very positive and yet Thomas Properties shareholders will receive only an implied price per share of $6.26. Parkway is well aware of Thomas Properties' improving financial metrics and is purchasing Thomas Properties at a substantial discount. The merger agreement unreasonably limits prospective bids for Thomas Properties by (i) prohibiting solicitation of any further bids, and (ii) imposing a termination penalty should Thomas Properties receive and accept a superior bid. Thomas Properties insiders, their affiliates and other majority shareholders own significant voting units of Thomas Properties and will receive millions of dollars as part of change of control arrangements, and therefore can unduly influence a sale of Thomas Properties not necessarily in the best interests of non-insider shareholders. In light of these facts, our investigation centers on the conduct of Thomas Properties' Board of Directors, who have unanimously approved the transaction, and whether they are (i) fulfilling their fiduciary duties to all shareholders, and (ii) obtaining a fair and reasonable price for Thomas Properties given its current financial condition and prospects.
