J.C. Penney sale talks stall: Bloomberg News – Reuters

By Reuters Staff
Oct 15 (Reuters) – Talks between J.C. Penney Cos lenders and the would-be buyers, Simon Property Group Inc and Brookfield Property Partners LP, broke down in recent days, Bloomberg News reported on Thursday, citing people with knowledge of the negotiations.
Simon Property and Brookfield Property, which are also the retailer’s two biggest landlords, missed several deal deadlines as communication between the parties lapsed, according to the report here.
The two sides may turn to mediation to help them determine if they can complete the deal, and on what terms, Bloomberg reported.
Creditors say J.C. Penneys original sale plan called for the deal to close around Oct. 3, Bloomberg reported, citing a regulatory filing.
J.C. Penney declined to comment, while the two mall owners did not immediately respond to Reuters requests for comment. (Reporting by Praveen Paramasivam in Bengaluru; Editing by Anil DSilva)read more
