Arthur Samberg Reports 6.6% Stake in Endeavour International Corporation (END)

Arthur J. Samberg, even though he has been off the radars for the past couple of days, is still a notorious person in the investment universe. The former CEO, president and chairman of Pequot Capital Management, Mr. Samberg was managing one of the largest hedge funds in the world with over $15 billion in assets under management. The flagship fund managed to return on average around 18% since 1986. After a litigation involving insider trading, which also involved Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT), Arthur Samberg and Pequot agreed for a settlement, which involved huge fines and censuring of Pequot. Moreover, Mr. Samberg was banned from association with any investment adviser.

In one of the recent filings with the SEC, Mr. Samberg disclosed a passive stake in Endeavour International Corporation (NYSE:END). The stake contains 3.2 million shares, equal to 6.6% of the company’s common stock. The position contains 1.95 million shares and another 1.25 million that will delivered upon the exercise of options within 60 days of March 11. In one of its late 13F filings, back in 2009, Pequot reported an $1.1 million stake in Endeavour, which contained around 820,500 shares.
