are subject to ground leases and all other documentation required for closing.Ran Shtarkman, President and CEO of Plaza Centers, said:?This is our second U.S. transaction in 2010 and is in line with our strategy to establish a portfolio of income generating investment properties parallel to our development activities, by acquiring high yielding assets in the U.S. The new portfolio of assets benefits from a strong tenant base and offers the opportunity to create additional value through the combined asset management expertise of Plaza and our joint venture partners.?This portfolio acquisition will offer us additional exposure to high quality retail assets in the U.S. and is a further step towards fulfilling our strategy of becoming a major investor in U.S. retail real estate assets."PlazaMordechay Zisser, Chairman +972 3 6086000Ran Shtarkman, President and CEO +36 1 462 7221Roy Linden, CFO +36 1 462 7105Financial Dynamics +44 20 7831 3113Stephanie HighettLaurence JonesNotes to EditorsAbout Plaza CentresPlaza
