Tivo Inc (TIVO): Fir Tree Reports New 7.2% Stake

Fir Tree, founded by Jeffrey Tannenbaum, has reported the acquisition of 7.22 million shares of Tivo Inc (NASDAQ:TIVO) through a Form 13D filing with the SEC, which account for 7.2% of the company’s outstanding stock. The acquisition represents a new addition to Fir Tree’s portfolio, and while the filing was made via a Form 13D, the fund has claimed to have bought the shares only for investment purposes, which makes sense as the stock is now a merger-arb play.

Tivo is a company that provides professional video technology software services and cloud-based software-as-a-service solutions. At the end of April, it was announced that the company will be acquired by Rovi Corporation for around $1.1 billion or $10.70 per share. The acquisition is expected to be completed during the current quarter, upon the approval of both companies’ shareholders. Over the past 12 months, Tivo’s stock has gained 24.52%.
