Billionaire Jeff Ubben’s ValueAct Cuts Stake in Motorola Solutions, Inc. (MSI) to 4.9%

Billionaire Jeff Ubben‘s ValueAct Partners has recently trimmed its exposure to Motorola Solutions Inc (NYSE:MSI) and in a recent filing with the US Securities and Exchange Commission reported holding 8.52 million shares of the company, down from 10.21 million shares disclosed in another filing earlier this month. Following the decrease, ValueAct owns 4.9% of Motorola Solutions’ outstanding common stock.

On March 10, ValueAct entered into a Stock Sale Agreement with Credit Suisse Securities, under the terms of which, Credit Suisse would sell up to 2.0 million shares of Motorola Solutions. The investor added that it was selling the securities as “part of its ongoing process of portfolio management.” ValueAct owns shares of Motorola Solutions since the first quarter of 2011, while the stock has appreciated by around 60% since then.

At the end of 2015, ValueAct was the top shareholders of Motorola Solutions, having reported 17.59 million shares in its last 13F filing. Overall, 22 funds disclosed long positions in the company as of the end of the last year, down by five funds over the quarter. Another investor with a significant position in the company was William B. Gray‘s Orbis Investment Management, which held a $1.20 billion position. Other funds bullish on Motorola Solutions include Leon Cooperman’s Omega Advisors, Ken Griffin’s Citadel Investment Group and Wallace Weitz’s Wallace R. Weitz & Co.

On the other hand, several investors unloaded their entire stakes in Motorola Solutions heading into 2016. Among them was David Cohen and Harold Levy’s Iridian Asset Management, which sold a stake previously valued at $73.7 million, followed by Malcolm Fairbairn’s fund, Ascend Capital, which disposed of some $25.1 million worth of shares.
