Real estate, media mogul Sam Zell to talk at UH

By Associated Press


Real estate mogul and media investor Sam Zell is scheduled to speak at the University of Hawaii at Manoa next week.

Zell is due to participate in a panel discussion Thursday evening entitled "The Ethical Boundaries of Entrepreneurial Behavior" sponsored by the Shidler College of Business and William S. Richardson School of Law. It will be followed by a question-and-answer session.

Zell is the chairman of Equity Group Investments LLC and created three of the largest real estate investment trusts in history.

In 2007, he engineered an $8.2 billion buyout of the Tribune Co., which includes the Chicago Tribune and the Los Angeles Times. Tribune filed for bankruptcy a year later after a steep downturn in newspaper revenue made it difficult for the company to repay its buyout debt.
