July 21 (Reuters) – US-based investment firm Starwood Capital Group confirmed Wednesday that it has softened its bid to buy out Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corp. (MNR.N) up to $ 1.92 billion.
Starwood raised its rate on Monmouth to $ 19.51 a share, representing about 1% upside from the last close.
Monmouth said last week that it received an unsolicited offer from a “large private equity firm” at $ 19.51 a share. Starwood previously offered the company $ 18.70 a piece.
The firm also said the bounty includes a $ 0.63 per share termination fee due to Commonwealth Equity. (EQC.N), which planned to acquire Monmouth for $ 1.91 billion in shares.
Monmouth, which gained 2.1% premarket, was not contacted for comment.
