Lastly, they also disclosed a 92.8% ownership stake in TrueYou.com (TUYU). This is a new holding for them, as they previously did not show a position in their last 13F filing. This is a slightly complex ownership stake. Taken directly from the 13G filing with the SEC, they hold,
"237,208,429 shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of a warrant to purchase 7,161,040 shares (the “Series B Shares”) of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock of the Issuer, par value $0.001 per share (the “Series B Preferred Stock”), which converts into Common Stock at the rate of one share of Series B Preferred Stock to 10,000 shares of Common Stock; (ii) 222,969,976 shares of Common Stock issuable upon the conversion of 223 shares (the “Series E Shares”) of Series E Convertible Preferred Stock of the Issuer, par value $0.001 per share (the “Series E Preferred Stock”), which converts into Common Stock at the rate of one share of Series E Preferred Stock to 1,000,000 shares of Common Stock; and (iii) 7,077,413 shares of Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of a warrant to purchase Common Stock (the “Common Stock Warrant”). The Series B and E Preferred Stock will automatically convert into Common Stock after the Issuer amends its Certificate of Incorporation to increase the number of authorized shares of Common Stock to enable (i) all of the shares of Series E Preferred Stock to be converted at the applicable conversion number, and (ii) all shares of Series B Preferred Stock to be converted in accordance with their terms (the “Authorized Share Increase”). If the Common Stock Warrant is exercised prior to the Authorized Share Increase, the Common Stock Warrant is exercisable to purchase an equivalent amount of Series B Preferred Stock."
Pequot was founded by Art in 1986 with $3 million in assets and peaked with $15 billion in assets around the tech bubble. Today, he manages over $4 billion. They have 150 employees and employ multiple strategies, including private equity and venture capital, as Art believes equity returns will decline over time. Art holds a S.B. from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, an M.S. from Stanford University, and he received his MBA from Columbia University. Pequot Capital Management was recently ranked 93rd in Alpha's hedge fund rankings.
