Corvex Management Exercises Call Options on TW Telecom

Keith Meister's hedge fund firm Corvex Management has filed an amended 13D with the SEC on shares of TW Telecom (TWTC).  Per the filing, Corvex has revealed a 6.03% ownership stake in TWTC with 9,069,224 shares.

Corvex's filing indicates they've exercised all call options that we originally outlined when the hedge fund first filed a 13D on TWTC back in May. This latest filing was due to exercise of options on June 27th.  All of their put options expired/terminated as well.  You can view their options activity at the very bottom of this link.

We previously posted Keith Meister's presentation on TWTC from the Ira Sohn Conference where he outlined that it could be a possible takeover target, is a market share gainer, and has balance sheet optionality. 

Per Google Finance, TWTC is "a national provider of managed network services, specializing in business Ethernet, data networking, Converged, Internet protocol-based virtual private network (IP VPN), Internet access, voice, including voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), and network security services to enterprise organizations, including public sector entities, and carriers throughout the United States, including their global locations."
