NEW YORK, Dec. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Harwood Feffer LLP (www.hfesq.com) is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of BRE Properties, Inc. ("BRE" or the "Company") (NYSE: BRE) concerning the proposed acquisition of the Company by Essex Property Trust Inc. ("Essex").

On December 9, 2013, Bloomberg reported that Essex had made a non-binding proposal to acquire BRE. Under the terms of the offer, BRE shareholders would receive 0.2971 shares of Essex and $12.33 per share in cash, or approximately $58.08, for each BRE share.    

Our investigation concerns whether the BRE board of directors is fulfilling its fiduciary duties, maximizing the value of the Company, disclosing all material benefits and costs, and obtaining full and fair consideration for Company shareholders. 

If you own BRE shares and wish to discuss this matter with us, or have any questions concerning your rights and interests with regard to this matter, please contact:
