100% of galaxies have supermassive black holes near them. Quasars form based on mass and age. Galaxies near each other should be around the same age. I don't see the problem here. So four galaxies around the same age had nearly the same mass by sheer random probability and they all turned into quasars at the same time because they're all the same age formation-wise.
"We looked at 1% of the universe and didn't see something like this so it must be impossible" is not valid science. That's right up there with "the Earth looks flat so it must be flat."

I doubt it takes into account complete BS assets like "customer good will" and "estimated patent value" and monetary estimations of "brand recognition." They're sort of maybe almost worth something. If a company was only worth its building, computers, inventory, and furniture then the company is probably about to go bankrupt so at least SOME intangible assets are worth something.
