A group headed by Jay Schottenstein said in June that it intended to wincontrol of the San Diego-based company’s board and replace managementbecause of what it called a “dramatic” loss in shareholder value. OnMonday, Schottenstein and another shareholder, Michael Ashner, said they would nominate a slate of directors for election at theannual shareholders meeting in October.

Schottenstein, an Ohio-based retail investor, says the directors will run on the platform that management should be replacedand the company liquidated at a price no lower than $8 per share of commonstock. He made a $13.50-a-share offer for Burnham Pacific last August, but the REIT’s board said it was too low.
