INDIANAPOLIS, Nov. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Simon, a leading global retail real estate company, today disclosed that, during 2014, it has accumulated a 5.71 million common shares, or 3.6%, ownership position in The Macerich Company (NYSE: MAC), an owner, operator and developer of retail properties. Simon may request that Macerich waive its excess share provision, which restricts share ownership of greater than 5%, in light of the waiver recently granted to another investor in connection with its acquisition of a 10.9% share position in Macerich.
