Trian boss Peltz sells Disney stake

Related Topics

Nelson Peltz, the boss of activist hedge fund firm Trian Fund Management, has sold his entire stake in Walt Disney Co weeks after losing a proxy battle in April at the entertainment giant, according to a report by CNBC.

The report cites an unnamed source in revealing that Peltz sold his Disney stock at roughly $120 per share, making about $1bn on the position. Disney’s shares are currently trading at around $100 per share, having lost nearly 9% in the past three months.

In a high-profile proxy battle, Peltz and Trian had been attempting to secure two seats on Disney’s board – one for Peltz and the other for the entertainment giant’s former CFO Jay Rasulo – but were thwarted when shareholders voted to re-elect the existing 12-member board by a substantial margin.
