Equity LifeStyle Properties Seeks Acquisitions

Marguerite Nader, President & chief executive officer of Equity LifeStyle Properties, Inc. (NYSE:ELS) said, "And then, just with respect to the broader acquisition pipeline, it's kind of the same as we've always said. We're working with interested buyers, but it's difficult to judge timing as to when closings would happen. Yes. I mean, I think that we're always looking for new acquisition and new opportunities. But I think, as we've often said, that getting bigger just to get bigger doesn't make sense for us. We are concentrating our efforts on both external growth and internal growth as we look to expansion sites and expanding our customer reach."
