BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. – G&L Realty Corp.'s (NYSE:GLR) chief executive officer and president – Daniel M. Gottlieb and Steven D. Lebowitz, respectively – are making a run for the healthcare REIT.

The two executives yesterday offered to acquire all the outstanding shares that they don't already own for $10/share in cash, or about $13.3 million. That represents an 11 percent premium over the REIT's current price of $9/share.

The company currently has 2.3 million shares of common stock outstanding, of which Gottlieb and Lebowitz together own about 29 percent. However, if they converted their operating partnership units to common stock, their current holdings would total about 43 percent of the company's outstanding common stock.

The offer represents a 29 percent premium over the stock's average closing price from over the last 10 days, G&L said in an announcement filed today with the SEC.

The company has set up a special committee of its board, Craig Tompkins, as chairman, Dr. Richard Lesher, Charles Reilly and Leslie Michelson, to consider the proposal.

G&L Realty's shares were trading up $0.88 at $9.00.
