David Tepper‘s Appaloosa Management, along with Brookfield Asset Management Inc (NYSE:BAM), have set their eyes on Terraform Power Inc. (NASDAQ:TERP), having teamed up to bid for Sunedison Inc (OTCMKTS:SUNEQ)‘s controlling stake in the company. According to a recently amended filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Appaloosa currently holds some 8.71 million shares of Terraform or 9.54% of the company’s Class A stock. Brookfield Asset Management holds about 11.1 million shares and has entered into a swap agreement for another 11.6 million shares, thus giving the entire group economic exposure to roughly 34.4% of Terraform’s Class A stock.
Terraform Power Inc. (NASDAQ:TERP) was established by SunEdison Inc to acquire the clean-energy assets it built in developed markets: those being the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Chile. Its sister company, TerraForm Global Inc (NASDAQ:GLBL), holds clean-energy assets in developing markets. On Friday, SunEdison Inc. and TerraForm Global announced a joint effort to sell SunEdison’s Class B shares that offer voting rights. The renewable-energy giant, which filed for bankruptcy earlier this year, holds roughly $1 billion worth of Terraform Power and TerraForm Global shares, according to Greg Jones, an analyst at CreditSights Inc. Although it made no announcement regarding its plans for Terraform Power, SunEdison is expected to unwind this position as well, as it has more than $16 billion in debt.
At the end of the first quarter, nearly 30% of Terraform Power Inc. (NASDAQ:TERP)’s common stock was held by 29 hedge funds in our system, up from 24 recorded a quarter earlier. Andrew Feldstein and Stephen Siderow’s Blue Mountain Capital held the largest stake among those 29 funds, a position of 9.17 million shares, unchanged during the first quarter. Phill Gross and Robert Atchinson’s Adage Capital Management was just behind with a holding of 7.4 million shares on March 31.
