NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Dec. 7, 2020–
SL Green Realty Corp. (NYSE: SLG), Manhattan’s largest office landlord, today announced that the Company’s Board of Directors has authorized an increase to the size of its share repurchase program by an additional $500 million of the Company’s common stock, bringing the program to a total of $3.5 billion.
“We believe the stock price continues to significantly lag behind the real financial value of the platform.
