Cost Method Investments
In August 2016, we acquired a minority interest in an unrelated company that specializes in the aggregation of commercial lease data (“Investee”). The shares we acquired represent an ownership interest of less than 20%. We evaluated our relationship with the Investee and determined we do not have significant influence over the operations of the Investee nor is it economically dependent upon us. The carrying value of this investment at December 31, 2016, was $3.0 million and is included in “Other assets” in the accompanying Consolidated Balance Sheets.
