Billionaire activist investor David Tepper of Appaloosa Management is solidifying his involvement in TerraForm Power Inc (NASDAQ:TERP). As a newly-amended filing with the US Securities and Exchange Commission showed, Appaloosa owns 10.88% of SunEdison’s yieldco TerraForm Power, the position amassing 8.71 million shares, which compares to 7.60 million shares held previously. Aside from raising its exposure to TerraForm Power, Appaloosa added in the filing that it had filed an amended complaint against SunEdison.
The amended complaint requested the adoption of several reforms, including the removal of TerraForm Power Inc (NASDAQ:TERP)’s members of the Corporate Governance and Conflicts Committee and their replacement with members elected by the company’s publish shareholders, as well as the removal of the CEO Brian Wuebbels, who, resigned on Wednesday. In addition, the investor requested the appointment of a director or monitor to TerraForm’s board of directors, who will represent the interests of the public shareholders.
