Emcore Corp (EMKR): Eric Singer Takes Large Position, Hints at Activist Campaign

Eric Singer’s VIEX Capital Advisors (formerly Vertex Capital Advisors) has filed a Form 13D on EMCORE Corporation (NASDAQ:EMKR), declaring a position of 1.97 million shares of the company, equaling 7.6% of its outstanding shares. The shares were purchased between March 22 and April 5, at prices ranging from $4.99 to $5.15 per share.

Item 4 of the filing also includes the following statement, which suggests the activist money manager could pursue a seat or seats on the company’s board:

“Despite the Issuer’s long stated policy to continually review its capital allocation and previous announcement that it expected to approve a cash dividend or distribution to shareholders, the Reporting Persons are not only disappointed with the Board’s decision, hidden in a Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on March 14, 2016, that the Board has decided not to pay a cash dividend to shareholders, but also with how long it has taken the Board to follow through on its capital allocation plans.  In order to ensure the protection of shareholder interests, the Reporting Persons believe that shareholder representatives are needed on the Board of the Issuer.”

The Shares purchased by Series One were purchased with working capital (which may, at any given time, include margin loans made by brokerage firms in the ordinary course of business) in open market purchases, except as otherwise noted, as set forth in Schedule A, which is incorporated by reference herein. The aggregate purchase price of the 1,221,281 Shares beneficially owned by Series One is approximately $6,131,197, excluding brokerage commissions.
The Shares purchased by VSO II were purchased with working capital (which may, at any given time, include margin loans made by brokerage firms in the ordinary course of business) in open market purchases, except as otherwise noted, as set forth in Schedule A, which is incorporated by reference herein. The aggregate purchase price of the 751,496 Shares beneficially owned by VSO II is approximately $3,765,011, excluding brokerage commissions.
Item 4.
Purpose of Transaction.
The Reporting Persons purchased the Shares based on the Reporting Persons’ belief that the Shares, when purchased, were undervalued and represented an attractive investment opportunity. Depending upon overall market conditions, other investment opportunities available to the Reporting Persons, and the availability of Shares at prices that would make the purchase or sale of Shares desirable, the Reporting Persons may endeavor to increase or decrease their position in the Issuer through, among other things, the purchase or sale of Shares on the open market or in private transactions or otherwise, on such terms and at such times as the Reporting Persons may deem advisable.
Despite the Issuer’s long stated policy to continually review its capital allocation and previous announcement that it expected to approve a cash dividend or distribution to shareholders, the Reporting Persons are not only disappointed with the Board’s decision, hidden in a Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on March 14, 2016, that the Board has decided not to pay a cash dividend to shareholders, but also with how long it has taken the Board to follow through on its capital allocation plans.  In order to ensure the protection of shareholder interests, the Reporting Persons believe that shareholder representatives are needed on the Board of the Issuer.
No Reporting Person has any present plan or proposal which would relate to or result in any of the matters set forth in subparagraphs (a) – (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D except as set forth herein or such as would occur upon or in connection with completion of, or following, any of the actions discussed herein. The Reporting Persons intend to review their investment in the Issuer on a continuing basis. Depending on various factors including, without limitation, the Issuer’s financial position and investment strategy, the price levels of the Shares, conditions in the securities markets and general economic and industry conditions, the Reporting Persons may in the future take such actions with respect to their investment in the Issuer as they deem appropriate including, without limitation, engaging in communications with management and the Board of the Issuer, engaging in discussions with stockholders of the Issuer and others about the Issuer and the Reporting Persons’ investment, making proposals to the Issuer concerning changes to the capitalization, ownership structure, board structure (including board composition) or operations of the Issuer, purchasing additional Shares, selling some or all of their Shares, engaging in short selling of or any hedging or similar transaction with respect to the Shares, or changing their intention with respect to any and all matters referred to in Item 4.
