Hedge fund Elliott raises stake in Japan’s Alpine (Reuters)
TOKYO (Reuters) – U.S. hedge fund Elliott Management has raised its stake in Alpine Electronics Inc (6816.T) to 6.3 percent, a regulatory filing showed, in a move that could add pressure on the Japanese company to reward minority shareholders. That followed a filing last week that showed Elliott had taken a 5.12 percent stake, saying it could make “significant proposals” to the components maker. Elliott’s stake buy comes as Hong Kong-based activist fund Oasis Management, which holds a near-10 percent stake in Alpine, attempts to block the sale of Alpine to larger affiliate Alps Electric Co Ltd (6770.T), arguing the sale price is low.
