  • Mount Kellett Capital, which has long been vocal about its displeasure with Sprint's (S +0.7%) $2.97/share deal to acquire Clearwire (CLWR +2.9%), says it has joined forces with 3 other major shareholders - Highside Capital, Glenview Capital, and Chesapeake Partners - to create a united front against Sprint's offer. Together, the shareholders own 18.2% of Clearwire's publicly-traded stock. With shares closing today at $3.37 and Dish's $3.30/share bid still on the table, investors are clearly betting on a higher deal price. (13D) (Crest Financial[View news story]

  • Special situations fans might want to have a look at one almost right from the pages of Joel Greenblatt's book. Spun off as part of the Leucadia (LUK)/Jefferies (JEF) merger and now trading is Crimson Wine Group (CWGL.PK). Leucadia owners received 1 share of Crimson for every 10 shares of LUK they owned.

    According to the latest Form 10 for CWGL. They have ~$180mm in Pro Forma TBV.

    Treasury Wine Estates Ltd. (PINK:TSRYY) has ~$1.95bn in TBV according to the latest interim results (2/28) and trades at a 2.0x TBV and has ~1.85x net leverage vs CWGL's debt free balance sheet.

    Risks: Illiquidity. Cumming (8.7%) and Steinberg (9.7%) decide to blow out.

    Reward: Underfollowed and underappreciated. At 2.0x TBV (arguably conservative compared to TSRYY, given its riskier balance sheet) it's easy to see how this trades 30-40% higher.

    Here is an article from TAM Capital Management further laying out the bull case.
