Hedge Fund and Insider Trading News: David Tepper, Joel Greenblatt, Seth Klarman, Bain Capital, Dollar Tree, Inc. (DLTR), Carnival PLC (CUK), and More

Hedge Funds and Bad Tactics Kill $4.4 Billion Deal (Bloomberg)
The heated auction between buyout firm Bain Capital and Austria’s AMS AG for the German LED-maker Osram Licht AG has ended in no deal. The prospect of a transaction being rekindled in the near term looks bleak – though not impossible over the longer run. It beggars belief that a tense round of bidding can culminate in no more than a tangled mess. But this is regrettably often the way with German M&A.

Hedge Funds Have Billions on the Line at PG&E’s Bankruptcy Hearing – and Equity-Holder Seth Klarman is Pitted Against Bond-Holder Paul Singer (Business Insider)
The final decision in the sprawling multi-billion-dollar bankruptcy of Pacific Gas & Electric will make some well-known hedge fund managers very happy, and ruin the years-long work of others. The California utility that was found partially responsible for some of the state’s recent massive wildfires had the backing of its major shareholders – including David AbramsAbrams Capital, John Paulson‘s hedge fund, Fidelity, and dozens of other managers – for an $11 billion Chapter 11 plan that would have paid out insurance claims at a rate that would make Seth Klarman‘s Baupost Group hundreds of millions.
