Catellus to Be Bought by ProLogis

Combining the two REITs will result in an entity that will have warehouse and distribution centers valued at $21 billion.

June 07, 2005|Roger Vincent | Times Staff Writer

Catellus Development Corp., one of California's largest private landowners thanks to a lineage that dates to the earliest days of railroads in the West, has agreed to be sold for $3.6 billion in cash and stock to warehouse and distribution giant ProLogis.

Both companies are real estate investment trusts that develop and operate industrial properties. Catellus also owns Union Station in Los Angeles and a portion of the residential and office development at Mission Bay in San Francisco.

ProLogis will continue to develop Catellus' properties, including Kaiser Commerce Center, a 588-acre former Kaiser steel mill in San Bernardino County near truck routes that serve the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. Catellus also is constructing office buildings at Los Angeles Air Force Base in El Segundo with Kearney Real Estate Co.

Under terms of the deal, ProLogis would pay $33.81 a share, a 16% premium over Catellus' closing price Friday, or 0.822 share of ProLogis for each Catellus share. The total value of the deal is $4.9 billion including debt, the companies said, and marks the biggest U.S. real estate acquisition of 2005.
The announcement drove Catellus' shares up $3.75, or 13%, on Monday to $32.99. ProLogis' shares fell $1.26 to $40.11.

The combined company would have more than 350 million square feet of warehouse and distribution centers valued at $21 billion.

"Catellus has the best industrial portfolio in the United States," said Jeffrey H. Schwartz, chief executive of ProLogis. The majority of Catellus' holdings are in California, which Schwartz called the top industrial real estate market in the country, with six times more buildable land in the state than ProLogis.
"We wanted a much larger presence in Southern California, and that was a driving reason to do this" acquisition, Schwartz said.

Catellus is "one of the most aggressive of the developers of new industrial land at the moment," Jim Ulmer, a senior vice president at Baltimore-based LaSalle Investment Management, told Bloomberg News. LaSalle owns 3.2 million shares of ProLogis and no Catellus shares.

"It's a good deal for Catellus, and it's a very good deal for ProLogis," he said.

Nelson Rising, chairman and chief executive of Catellus, said, "We believe this is an excellent way for our shareholders to realize the value of the platform we have built and to participate in the future growth of ProLogis."

Rising, 63, has been Catellus' CEO since 1994 and previously was a senior partner at Maguire Thomas Partners, where he was in charge of major Los Angeles projects including the Library Tower and Playa Vista. Rising, whose 1.4% stake in Catellus is worth about $47 million, would join ProLogis' board of directors, but he would not have a management post.

Catellus' president of commercial development, Ted Antenucci, would become president of global development for ProLogis. Schwartz declined to speculate on possible layoffs of Catellus employees.
The union of the two companies "is very complementary in terms of what they bring to the table," said John Long, chairman of the Richard S. Ziman Center for Real Estate at UCLA and a private real estate investor through Highridge Partners and Golden Boy Partners.

Catellus, based in San Francisco, has a huge inventory of land and expertise at getting government approvals for new construction, while ProLogis is a respected large-scale developer, Long said.

Aurora, Colo.-based ProLogis owns and manages 2,043 warehouse and distribution centers totaling 310.8 million square feet in North America, Europe and Asia. Its customers include FedEx Corp., Home Depot Inc., General Electric Co., Sears Holdings Corp., Unilever and Wal-Mart Stores Inc.
Catellus became a REIT at the start of last year as it shifted its focus to building and operating industrial parks instead of developing urban mixed-used projects such as Union Station and Santa Fe Place in San Diego. It has 40.6 million square feet of property, mainly distribution centers, across the U.S.
Santa Fe Pacific Corp. spun off Catellus to shareholders in 1990.

But the company's roots and gigantic land holdings date to the 1850s, when civil engineer Theodore D. Judah built a 23-mile line called the Sacramento Valley Railroad. It later became the Central Pacific Railroad, the first to conquer the Sierra Nevada. In 1869, the line linked up with the Union Pacific, coming from the East, with the driving of the famed golden spike at Promontory Point, Utah.

As part of its mandate for a transcontinental railway, the federal government gave the railroad builders vast tracts of land as an incentive to complete the historic rail linkage.
Later, with its name changed again, this time to Southern Pacific, the railroad heavily promoted its territory in the West to attract residents and businesses and became one of the most powerful players on the economic scene in 19th century California.

Catellus Development Corp. said it paid $16 million for the 588-acre property in San Bernardino County that it will develop into a giant industrial park and truck plaza. A subsidiary of the real estate development firm will eventually construct 6 million square feet of industrial space at the Kaiser Commerce Center in the Fontana area. The property, which is located near the intersection of Interstates 10 and 15, was purchased from Kaiser Ventures Inc. An environmental cleanup of the site and completion of transportation improvements are scheduled to be completed by mid-2002, according to the San Francisco-based company.


The Catellus Derailment : Ouster of CEO is Latest Chapter in Saga of Struggle

The Catellus Derailment : Ouster of CEO is Latest Chapter in Saga of Struggle


The news last week that the top executive at Catellus Development Corp. in San Francisco will resign is the latest twist in a long struggle by California's largest private landowner to turn nearly 1 million acres--once owned by the nation's railroad barons--into a vast real estate empire.
The expected departure of Catellus Chief Executive Vernon B. Schwartz was engineered by the California Public Employees Retirement System (CalPERS), officials close to the company and pension fund say privately. CalPERS owns more than 40% of the company's stock.
Schwartz declined to be interviewed. So did senior officials at CalPERS, the giant pension fund in Sacramento that invests the retirement money of more than 800,000 of the state's current and retired workers.
CalPERS officials had been lobbying for drastic changes at Catellus because they were tired of seeing the company's stock go nowhere and of listening to management blame the firm's misfortunes on California's weak real estate market.
The pension fund has seen the value of its initial $473-million investment in Catellus cut in half in recent years. Even its financial adviser, who initially recommended that CalPERS buy the stock, now doubts that the fund can recoup these losses any time this century.
"This whole thing has turned out to be a catastrophe for investors, especially CalPERS," said Burland East, an analyst who follows Catellus for Kemper Securities in Chicago. "It's not all Catellus' fault--there's plenty of blame to be spread around."
(The losses represent no danger to the health of the fund itself, East noted. CalPERS has assets that exceed $80 billion, making it the largest public pension fund in the nation.)
Catellus--which transportation giant Santa Fe Pacific Corp. established as an independent, publicly traded company in 1990--is involved in about a dozen megaprojects from San Francisco to San Diego. It also owns more than 900,000 acres of land across the state--an amount twice the size of Orange County.
While Catellus' once-bright prospects have certainly been dimmed by California's real estate recession, it has also been hurt by forces ranging from slow-growth advocates to toxic waste.
Catellus' joint-venture in the once-thriving Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood is suffering, as its wealthy clients have cut back their spending. A plan to build a massive mixed-use complex at downtown Los Angeles' Union Station has been caught up in controversy and legal disputes. So has another proposal to develop a 16-acre site in downtown San Diego.
And then there is Mission Bay in San Francisco, the company's most ambitious project--and perhaps its most problem-plagued.
The 313-acre, $2-billion development would front the bay about a mile south of downtown and would be the largest in the city's history. Plans call for 8,700 homes and more than 6 million square feet of offices, shops and light-industrial space.
But the project has languished on the drawing boards for years, as first Santa Fe and then Catellus wrangled with everyone from local no-growth advocates to government environmental officials.
Conservationists wanted the company to build fewer offices and preserve more of its wetlands. Housing advocates pushed for lower rents and cheaper selling prices. Environmental agencies wanted Catellus to clean up the toxic-laced site, which was previously used as a dump for everything from 1906 earthquake rubble to parts from old locomotives.
Catellus worked out a compromise with each of the groups and received the city's conditional approval for the project in 1991. But the permission came with so many strings attached that Catellus does not expect to break ground until next year at the earliest.
"Mission Bay is a great project, but it has just taken too long to get it off the ground," said John Lutzius, an analyst who follows Catellus for Newport Beach-based Green Street Advisors. "And all the while the land just sits there, it's eating up cash without generating any income."
No one expected delays this long back in the 1980s, when Santa Fe started mulling the plan to establish Catellus as an investor-owned company to develop vast real estate holdings acquired in the previous 100 years.
Much of the property stood in the middle of key transportation hubs, bustling commercial areas or fast-growing suburbs. Raw-land prices for less desirable parcels were rising as much as 20% a year.
CalPERS first got involved in 1989 when, in a private sale of stock, it bought a 20% stake in Catellus at the urging of advisers at Chicago-based JMB Realty Corp.
The pension fund paid $398 million for about 10.5 million shares--or nearly $38 a share--and also invested another $75 million in a convertible security. CalPERS felt the move was a smart long term investment that would pay off when the properties were developed.
But by late 1990, when shares in Catellus began trading publicly for the first time, California real estate prices had already begun their steep descent.
