Richard McGuire‘s Marcato Capital Management has revealed its latest investment in a recent filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The fund has acquired nearly 5.52 million shares of Terex Corp (NYSE:TEX), which represent approximately 5.1% of its outstanding stock. The fund revealed it has already had discussion with Terex regarding ways to increase shareholder value and plans to continue collaborating with the management of the company.
Crane manufacturer Terex Corp (NYSE:TEX) has been looking to sell itself for the past 12 month. In August 2015, the company reached an all-stock merger deal with Finland’s Konecranes Oyj, which was later put on hold when China’s Zoomlion Heavy Industry Science & Technology Co offered to buy Terex for $3.4 billion in cash. The takeover did not materialize, however, as Terex executives complained they had not received a proper proposal after months of negotiations.
After Terex imposed a deadline, Zoomlion withdrew its offer. Terex went back to Konecranes Oyj’s proposal but agreed to sell only its maritime port cranes and factory cranes divisions for $1.3 billion. The company has also agreed to sell its construction equipment business in Germany for $60 million to Japan’s Yanmar Holdings.
Hedge fund interest towards Terex Corp (NYSE:TEX) skyrocketed during the first quarter, as the number of long hedge fund positions doubled to 38 at the end of March. Together these funds held 18% of the company’s common stock. Richard S. Pzena‘s fund, Pzena Investment Management, held a little over 4.8 million shares, the largest stake among the funds followed by Insider Monkey. Billionaire Steve Cohen made a huge addition to his bet on Terex, as his family office Point72 Asset Management held more than 2 million shares at the end of the first quarter.
