Senator Investment Group Discloses Trade Street Residential Stake

Doug Silverman and Alex Klabin's hedge fund Senator Investment Group has filed a 13D and Form 3 with the SEC regarding their position in Trade Street Residential (TSRE).

This is a newly disclosed position for the hedge fund and they now own 25.6% of the company with over 9.3 million shares.  The filing was made due to activity on January 16th.

The fine print of the 13D indicates that Senator entered into a Standby Purchase Agreement (on November 12th, 2013) where they would purchase all of the unsubscribed shares of common stock in the issuer's $100 million rights offering to existing shareholders.

Senator also nominated one of their employees to the board of the company.

Per Google Finance, Trade Street Residential is "a full service, vertically integrated, self-administered and self-managed corporation focused on acquiring, owning, operating and managing garden-style and mid-rise apartment communities in mid-sized cities and suburban submarkets primarily in the southeastern United States, including Texas."
