Cost Method Investments
In August 2016, we acquired a minority interest in Compstak, Inc. (“Compstak”), which is an unrelated company that specializes in the aggregation of commercial lease data. The shares we acquired represent an ownership interest of less than 20%. We evaluated our relationship with Compstak and determined we do not have significant influence over its operations nor is it economically dependent upon us. The carrying value of this investment at December 31, 2017 and 2016, was $3.0 million and is included in “Other assets” in the accompanying Consolidated Balance Sheets.
