Jeff Smith & Starboard Value Press Wausau Paper to Buyback Shares, Hike Dividend

Starboard Value, Wausau Paper: Famed activist Jeff Smith and his hedge fund, Starboard Value, have just reported that they still hold a sizable position in Wausau Paper Corp. (NYSE:WPP) worth 15.2% of its outstanding shares. In a filing with the SEC this morning, Starboard also released a letter Wausau’s CEO and Board of Directors, calling for a share buyback and a dividend hike. Given the hedge fund’s history of successful activism, we’d take this development very seriously.

Here’s the full letter:
