Marcato Capital Management, LLC Key Developments

Marcato Capital Urges Dillard’s To Spin Off REIT

Marcato Capital Management, LLC said that Dillard's Inc. (NYSE:DDS) would benefit from splitting into a real-estate investment trust and an operating company. Marcato, which has a 4.9% stake in Dillard's, said that it thinks Dillard’s could unlock tremendous value were it to pursue such a strategy, noting that in recent months several major companies with significant real-estate holdings have disclosed plans to consider a REIT structure in their strategies.

Marcato Capital Urges IHG Conduct Review Of Strategic Alternatives

Marcato Capital Management, LLC sent a letter to Intercontinental Hotels Group plc (LSE:IHG) shareholders with results of an independent evaluation of various potential strategic alternatives conducted by Houlihan Lokey.

Marcato Urges Intercontinental Hotels To Consider Merger With Rival

Marcato Capital Management, LLC said that Intercontinental Hotels Group plc (LSE:IHG) should consider a possible merger with one of six rivals: Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc. (NYSE:HOT), Marriott International, Inc. (NasdaqGS:MAR), Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc. (NYSE:HLT), Wyndham Hotels and Resorts, LLC, Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE:H) and Accor S.A. (ENXTPA:AC). Marcato said, "Each of these companies would be a fit for IHG by broadening its geographic footprint in the most desirable hospitality markets, expanding chain scale diversification, increasing asset-light earnings, realizing cost savings, improving system fund benefits, and lowering cost of capital." Richard "Mick" McGuire, the founder of Marcato, says in an open letter to shareholders of Intercontinental Hotels that he built up its stake in the business over concerns that the board was not giving due consideration to the strategic alternatives available in the current industry and M&A environment. Marcato said that an all-stock combination with another major hotel operator could deliver a premium upwards of 100% over Intercontinental’s current share price, creating a divserified hotel management company.
