Negative sales environment
Rising interest rates
Shareholders got completely hosed when management rejected SPG's 95.50 per share takeover back in 2015.
Talk about shoulda, coulda, woulda, I doubt this company will ever see 95.50 per share, ever again.
There's a total paradigm shift with the way people shop, horizontal flagship stores are seeing significant pressure from e-commerce. Sears, gone. Toy's R US, gone. RadioShack, gone. Payless, gone, and many more reducing their store footprint. The list goes on... Rue21, The Limited, Game Stop, Ascena Retail (Lane Bryant, Ann Taylor, etc) ... and on and on and on!
Mall operators are F%#@ed!!!
