13D Filing: MHR Fund Management Further Ups Stake in Loral Space & Communications Inc. (LORL)

Mark Rachesky’s MHR Fund Management keeps raising its exposure to Loral Space & Communications Ltd. (NASDAQ:LORL). In a new filing with the US Securities and Exchange Commission, MHR reported holding 8.54 million shares of Loral Space & Communication, above the stake of some 8.35 million shares disclosed in a filing a few days ago. Following the increase, MHR holds 39.9% of Loral’s outstanding stock, versus 39% held previously.

In this way, MHR has solidified its position as LORL’s largest shareholder in our database. Coming in second is Solus Alternative Asset Management, managed by Christopher Pucillo, which holds a $86.9 million position; 17.4% of its 13F portfolio is allocated to the stock as of the end of 2015. Other professional money managers that are bullish consist of James Dondero’s Highland Capital Management, Leon Cooperman’s Omega Advisors and George Soros’s Soros Fund Management.

Overall, 24 funds among those we track held long positions in Loral Space & Communications at the end of last year, down by one fund over the quarter.
