Amid this intention, both funds seek to negotiate with other shareholders in order to determinate a new board.

Last week, Corvex and Related Fund Management said that they approve the ruling of the Arbitration Panel, which stated that the funds, which in aggregate hold 9.6% of CommonWealth REIT, can nominate a new independent board of trustees.
