Whitebox Advisors Cuts Its Stake In Dune Energy Inc (DUNR)

Andy Redleaf has decided to limit exposure to Dune Energy Inc (OTCMKTS:DUNR) after he initiated a position earlier this year. His fund, Whitebox Advisors, has disclosed in a recent filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission a reduction of its stake to 3.67 million shares, which represent approximately 5.09% of the company’s common stock. Before the reduction, the fund held 3.74 million shares.
