    Your article says that the deal was structured to protect the tax position of existing Archstone shareholders. Yet your description of the transaction seems to suggest that Archstone sold its assets to Equity Residential. Equity Residential appears to have done a series of 1031 exchanges. How did any of that benefit the Archstone shareholders who would appear to have sold assets in a taxable transaction? Missing some other details?
