investigation into the Board of Directors of Colonial Properties Trust
(“Colonial” or the “Company”) (NYSE: CLP) in connection with their conduct
related to the sale of the Company to Mid-America Apartment Communities Inc.
(“Mid-America”) (NYSE: MAA). Under the terms of the proposed transaction,
shareholders of Colonial will receive 0.36 newly-issued shares of Mid-America
for each share of Colonial common stock that they own, representing an implied
price per share of approximately $24.47 per Colonial share based on the
