Mark D. Lerner’s Chesapeake Partners Management Bought More $CLWR

Mark D. Lerner’s Chesapeake Partners Management filed on December 6th that firm has boosted its passive stake in Clearwire Corp/DE (CLWR) to 5.4%. According to the filing, Chesapeake Partners Management passed the 5% ownership threshold on October 13th, and continued purchasing the shares until December 2nd. Now Chesapeake Partners Management beneficially owns 13.84 million shares in CLWR. Chesapeake Partners Management did not make large adjustment to its CLWR before October. The firm had 3.93 million shares in CLWR at the end of June, and 4.45 million shares by the end of September. On November 18th, CLWR dropped 21% as the company was thinking about skipping a $237M interest payment due December. So Chesapeake Partners Management must have seen the stock’s sudden decline as a buying signal. CLWR has lost 56% so far in 2011, and is priced at $2.28.
