Xenia Hotels seeks stockholder approval to fully opt out of Md. takeover act

Hotel real estate investment trust Xenia Hotels & Resorts Inc. recommended its stockholders vote in favor of a charter amendment to fully opt out of Maryland's Unsolicited Takeover Act at its 2018 annual meeting scheduled for May 22.

The company previously opted out of all but one provision of the act. The amendment would complete the company's opt out, making it no longer subject to section 3-804(c) of the Maryland General Corporation Law, which governs director vacancies. Xenia Hotels considers the move to be in the best interests of the company and its stockholders.

For the amendment to be effective, it requires the affirmative vote of at least a majority of the votes cast on the matter. Once approved, the company will have to seek shareholder approval to opt back into the MUTA provision.
