Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C. Reminds Investors of an Investigation of LaSalle Hotel Properties, Inc. (LHO) on Behalf of Stockholders in Connection With its Proposed Acquisition by Blackstone Real Estate Partners VIII

Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C. reminds investors that the Firm is
investigating potential claims on behalf of LaSalle Hotel Properties
(NYSE: LHO) stockholders concerning the proposed acquisition of the
company by Blackstone Real Estate Partners VIII.

Our investigation concerns whether LaSalle’s board of directors failed
to adequately shop the Company and obtain the best possible value for
its stockholders before entering into a definitive merger agreement with
Blackstone. Under the terms of the agreement, LaSalle stockholders will
receive $33.50 per share in cash for each LaSalle share that they own.
Despite having received a cash and stock offer of $37.80 per share from
Pebblebrook Hotel Trust – a nine percent shareholder in LaSalle –
LaSalle claims that the offer is not superior to that of Blackstone.
LaSalle filed a Preliminary Proxy Statement on June 18, 2018.

If you own LaSalle shares, have information, would like to learn more
