Outerwall Inc (OUTR): Engaged Capital Continues to Unload Stake

We wrote recently about Glenn W. Welling‘s Engaged Capital slashing its stake in Outerwall Inc (NASDAQ:OUTR) to 6.1%, after the company inked a merger agreement with Apollo Global Management. The fund has since slashed its stake further, as it counts ownership of just 90,003 common shares, which amass less than 1% of Outerwall’s outstanding stock, according to the activist fund’s latest amended 13D/A filing with the SEC. Given the merger agreement, Engaged Capital’s move to further unwind its stake was somewhat expected, as it takes profit from its position, which was initiated during the fourth quarter of 2015. Shares slumped hard late in that quarter, offering a great entry point for investors, and Engaged Capital heavily added to its stake in the first quarter as shares hit five-year lows.

Outerwall is a retail operator that owns and runs special self-service kiosks for renting video games and movies, as well as coin cashing machines. Year-to-date, the company’s stock is up by 41.84%. For the second quarter of 2016, Outerwall disclosed earnings per share from continuing operations of $2.38 and revenue of $518 million, topping the estimates of $1.37 for EPS and $487 million for revenue. At the end of July, B. Riley reiterated its ‘Buy’ rating on Outerwall’s stock, with a price target of $58, while Dougherty & Co downgraded its rating to ‘Sell’ from ‘Neutral’.

Smith’s Laurion Capital Management.
