Carl Icahn Reduces Lionsgate Stake With Block Sale
Another 3 million shares held by the billionaire investor in the mini-major sold Wednesday, reducing his stake to around 1 percent.
TORONTO - Carl Icahn’s stake in Lionsgate looks to be down to a sliver.
The billionaire investor’s holding in the mini-major was reduced to 3.1 percent after Lionsgate last week arranged the sale of around 19.2 million shares held by funds affiliated with Icahn for $7 each.
But the Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that a block of another 3 million Lionsgate shares belonging to Icahn sold into the market on Wednesday, reducing his stake to around 1 percent.
Recent market volatility delayed Lionsgate from completing the sale of up to 44,161,971 shares in the mini-major as part of a settlement with Icahn that would see the investor and son Brett Icahn unload their 33% stake for $7 a-share.
That stock sale also ended a long-running proxy battle between Lionsgate and Icahn.
