NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Bow Street LLC (“Bow Street”), a New York-based investment firm that
beneficially owns approximately 4.5% of the outstanding shares of common
stock of Mack-Cali Realty Corporation (“Mack-Cali” or the “Company”)
(NYSE: CLI), today sent a letter to Mack-Cali Chairman William Mack
expressing Bow Street’s concern at his abrupt termination of settlement
discussions.

May 17, 2019

Dear Mr. Mack,

Over the past week, we engaged in several conversations which we
believed to be constructive and would result in a fair and
straightforward resolution of our ongoing proxy contest. As such, we
were pleased when you sent us a Settlement Agreement calling for the
establishment of a Strategic Review Committee of the Board, comprised of
two Bow Street nominees and two Mack-Cali incumbent directors, with a
mandate to review the Company’s strategic direction and explore the
value to be realized from a sale of the Company or any of its assets.

Our comments to the Settlement Agreement were entirely within the spirit
of our discussions and only clarified the Strategic Review Committee’s
ability to independently evaluate the best path forward for Mack-Cali.
We were therefore surprised that following receipt of our comments, you
called this morning to simply inform us that our changes did not work.
Before giving us a moment to speak, you abruptly hung up the phone, only
to call us back a moment later and hang up the phone again.

We believe our comments were in the best interests of shareholders. They
included:

  1.   Bow Street and Mack-Cali agreeing in advance to the directors that
would comprise the Strategic Review Committee;
 
2. Enabling the Strategic Review Committee to engage an investment bank
instead of a valuation firm, which we believe would be better
positioned to determine the value that could be expected to be
received in a strategic transaction as compared to the value of the
Company on a standalone basis; and
 
3. In the event that Mack-Cali receives any unsolicited proposals,
providing the Special Review Committee with a mandate to review such
proposals.

We hope to continue settlement discussions on the good faith terms with
which we initiated them, premised on the establishment of a Strategic
Review Committee with the resources, independence, and mandate to
determine the best path forward for Mack-Cali and its shareholders.

Respectively,
