Prospectus exerpt:  Immediately prior to the effective time of the REIT Merger, Simon shall file a Certificate of Designations with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware to create the Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock. The following summary of the terms and provisions of the Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the pertinent sections of the Certificate of Designations creating the Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock, the form of which is attached to this proxy statement/prospectus as Appendix E.

The Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock, with respect to dividend rights and rights upon liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the affairs of Simon, will rank (i) junior to all other shares of capital stock of Simon which, by their terms, rank senior to the Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock, (ii) on a parity with all other shares of Simon preferred stock which are not, by their terms, junior or senior to the Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock and (iii) senior to the Simon common stock, Simon Class B common stock and Simon Class C common stock and to all other shares of capital stock of Simon which, by their terms, rank junior to the Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock. The Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock shall rank on a parity with the Simon Series A Convertible Preferred Stock, Simon Series A Excess Preferred Stock, Simon Series B Convertible Preferred Stock, Simon Series B Excess Preferred Stock, Simon Series C Convertible Preferred Stock, Simon Series D Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock, Simon Series E Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock, Simon Series F Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock, Simon Series G Cumulative Step-Up Premium Rate Preferred Stock and Simon Series H Variable Rate Preferred Stock, which as of the date of this proxy statement/prospectus are the only authorized classes or series of Simon preferred stock, the Simon 6% Convertible Preferred Stock to be issued in the REIT Merger and any other class or series of Simon's capital stock that is not by its terms junior to the Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock.

Holders of the Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock will be entitled to receive, when and as authorized by the Simon board of directors, out of funds legally available for the payment of dividends, cumulative cash dividends at the rate of 8.375% of the liquidation preference per annum (equivalent to $4.1875 per share per annum). Such dividends shall be payable quarterly in arrears on the last day of each March, June, September and December or, if not a business day, the succeeding business day. Any dividend payable on the Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock for any partial dividend period will be computed on the basis of a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months. Dividends will be payable to holders of record as they appear in the stock records of Simon at the close of business on the applicable record date, which shall be the 15th day of the calendar month in which the applicable dividend payment date falls or such other date designated by the Simon board of directors for the payment of dividends that is not more than 30 nor less than 10 days prior to such dividend payment date.

Immediately prior to the effective time of the REIT Merger, Chelsea shall pay any accumulated dividends on the Chelsea Series A Preferred Stock to the holders thereof for the period from the last preceding dividend payment date to but excluding the date of the closing of the REIT Merger. Dividends on the Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock will accrue from and after the date of the closing of the REIT Merger. The initial dividend payment date on the Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock will be the first date on which a quarterly dividend would have been paid on the Chelsea Series A Preferred Stock after the closing of the REIT Merger had the REIT Merger not occurred. On such date, Simon shall pay holders of Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock a dividend equal to the annual dividend rate of $4.1875 per share for the period from and including the date of the closing of the REIT Merger to but excluding the date as to which such initial dividend is payable based on a 360-day year of twelve 30-day months.

No dividends on the Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock shall be authorized by the Simon board of directors or be paid or set apart for payment by Simon at such time as the terms and provisions of any agreement of Simon, including any agreement relating to its indebtedness, prohibits such authorization, payment or setting apart for payment or provides that such authorization, payment or setting apart for payment would constitute a breach thereof or a default thereunder, or if such authorization or payment shall be restricted or prohibited by law.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, dividends on the Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock will accumulate whether or not Simon has earnings, whether or not there are funds legally available for the payment of such dividends and whether or not such dividends are authorized. Accumulated but unpaid dividends on the Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock shall not bear interest and holders of the Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock shall not be entitled to any dividends in excess of full cumulative dividends as described above.

No dividends will be declared or paid or set apart for payment on any capital stock of Simon ranking, as to dividends, on a parity with or junior to the Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock for any period unless full cumulative dividends have been or contemporaneously are declared and paid or declared and a sum sufficient for the payment therefor set apart for such payment on the Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock for all past dividend periods and the then current dividend period. When dividends are not paid in full (or a sum sufficient for such full payment is not so set apart) upon the Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock and the shares of each other series of preferred stock ranking on a parity as to dividends with the Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock, all dividends declared on the Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock and any other series of preferred stock ranking on a parity as to dividends with the Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock shall be declared pro rata so that the amount of dividends declared per share of Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock and such other series of preferred stock shall in all cases bear to each other the same ratio that accumulated dividends per share of Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock and such other series of preferred stock bear to each other.

Except as provided in the immediately preceding paragraph, unless full cumulative dividends on the Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock have been or contemporaneously are declared and paid or declared and a sum sufficient for the payment therefor set apart for such payment on the Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock for all past dividend periods and the then current dividend period, no dividends (other than in shares of Simon common stock or other capital stock ranking junior to the Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock as to dividends and upon liquidation) shall be declared or paid or set aside for payment nor shall any other distribution be declared or made upon the Simon common stock, Simon Class B common stock or Simon Class C common stock or any other capital stock of Simon ranking junior to or on a parity with the Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock as to dividends or upon liquidation, nor shall any shares of Simon common stock, Simon Class B common stock or Simon Class C common stock or any other capital stock of Simon ranking junior to or on a parity with the Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock as to dividends or upon liquidation be redeemed, purchased or otherwise acquired for any consideration (or any moneys be paid or made available for a sinking fund for the redemption of such shares) by Simon (except by conversion into or exchange for other capital stock of Simon ranking junior to the Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock as to dividends and upon liquidation).

Any dividend payment made on the Simon 83/8% Preferred Stock shall first be credited against the earliest accumulated but unpaid dividend due with respect to such shares which remains payable.
