Now for the second entry in this series of updates on the dozens of companies I've profiled so far! Care Investment Trust In January, 2013, Care Investment Trust entered into an agreement to merge with its parent company, Tiptree Financial Partners, LP. The combined company will not retain Care's REIT status and will attempt to list on a national exchange. The transaction is somewhat convoluted and it is difficult to assess whether or not it is fair to minority shareholders. One thing is for certain, and that is Tiptree would not be going forward with the transaction if it weren't advantageous for its own partners.
