General Growth Properties, Inc. today announced it has reached an agreement to settle its dispute with the heirs of Howard Hughes regarding the Summerlin planned community in Las Vegas, NV. Under the terms of the agreement, GGP will pay $230 million to the Hughes heirs in exchange for a full release and settlement of all claims against GGP and its affiliates. The amount will be paid shortly after GGP’s emergence from bankruptcy. Ten million dollars will be paid in cash and the remaining $220 million may be paid either in cash or in shares of new GGP common stock at the election of the company.

“We are very pleased to reach a mutually beneficial settlement agreement with the heirs of Howard Hughes regarding Summerlin,” said Thomas H. Nolan Jr., president and chief operating officer of GGP. “With this agreement, GGP settles one of the last remaining material issues impacting the capital structure of the new GGP and ‘Spinco’ as we continue our steady march toward emergence from bankruptcy. It has always been our preference to reach an agreement with the Hughes heirs, with whom we have had a very successful venture for many years. The Summerlin master planned community is one of the premier communities in the nation and has a long track record of strong and consistent financial performance. It is indicative of the type and quality of assets that will comprise ‘Spinco’, the GGP spin-off company that will consist of our portfolio of master planned communities and other real estate assets with long-term value creation potential.”

The Summerlin master planned community spans 22,500 acres along the western rim of the Las Vegas Valley located approximately 12 miles from downtown Las Vegas. Currently home to nearly 100,000 residents, Summerlin includes hundreds of neighborhoods and dozens of villages - all connected by a 150-mile-long trail system and nearly 150 parks. Summerlin is located adjacent to Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, a world-class hiking and rock climbing destination

With 26 public and private schools, four institutions of higher learning, nine golf courses, major health and medical centers, business parks, shopping centers, cultural facilities and more than a dozen houses of worship, Summerlin is a multi-generational and fully integrated community. Since its inception in the early 1990s, Summerlin has consistently ranked in the Robert Charles Lesser annual poll of Top Ten Master Planned Communities in the nation, and Summerlin still has more than 7,500 acres left to develop.

The settlement agreement is subject to approval of the Bankruptcy Court as part of the plan of reorganization process.
