REIT IPOs – Déjà vu All Over Again

Mayer Brown Legal Update
Sponsors of institutional private real estate funds have had difficulties accessing new equity during the past year. In fact, the second quarter of 2009 saw the lowest amount of equity capital raised by private real estate funds in any quarter since 2004.
