Kenneth Mario Garschina’s Mason Capital Initiated a New Position in $FBHS

Kenneth Mario Garschina’s Mason Capital initiated a new position in Fortune Brands Home & Security, Inc. (FBHS). According to the firm’s 13G on October 14th, Mason Capital  has 10.74 million shares in FBHS, or approximately 6.9% passive stake. FBHS has only 1 month trading history in NYSE. In September, Fortune Brands spun off its Home & Security business to existing shareholders (FBHS) and changed its parent company name to Beam Inc. (BEAM). So shareholders who had Fortune Brands’ parent company shares will receive the same amount of new shares in FBHS, and the old parent company shares will automatically convert into BEAM. It’s possible that Mason Capital received a large amount of FBHS share during the spinning off process.
