Steven R. Gerbsman, Principal of Gerbsman Partners, announced today that Gerbsman Partners successfully terminated the executory real estate contract for a US based life science company.
The publically held company, executed a lease for 54,000 square feet of space in San Mateo, California. Due to market conditions and the need to raise additional capital, the company made a strategic decision to reduce its corporate space allocation. Faced with a potential contingent liability in excess of $ 15.5 million, the company retained Gerbsman Partners to assist them in the termination of the executory real estate contract.
