Is the clock ticking for a big Brookdale REIT deal?

Ronald Orol at The Street says activist investor Sandell Asset Management appears to hold a strong hand in its dealings with Brookdale Senior Living, which it wants to spin off its real estate. The New York-based investment firm, Orol writes, plans to add to its board presence next spring to try to force such a transaction unless Brookdale's directors act before then. And the pieces are in place for such action — as are two deep-pocketed potential buyers.

For HCP and Ventas, an acquisition of Brookdale or its assets would prevent the formation of a new rival. Any move by Brookdale to spin off its massive real estate holdings into a free-standing REIT would create new competition for HCP and Ventas in the health care REIT industry, people familiar with Sandell argue.
