In 2018, we released our advisory alert “Trends in Public REIT M&A: 2012–2017” chronicling select metrics across the 50+ REIT M&A transactions announced during the 2012‒2017 period. We updated the sample set and findings in our 2019 update alert to account for an additional 15 transactions announced during 2018.
