Viking Global Boosts Triumph Group Stake

Andreas Halvorsen's hedge fund firm Viking Global has filed a 13G with the SEC regarding shares of Triumph Group (TGI).  Per the filing, Viking now owns 5.4% of the company with 2,834,161 shares.

This marks an increase of over 37% in the number of shares they own since the end of the second quarter.  The 13G was required due to portfolio activity on August 20th.

Per Google Finance, Triumph Group "designs, engineers, manufactures, repairs, overhauls and distributes a portfolio of aerostructures, aircraft components, accessories, subassemblies and systems. It offers a range of products and services to the aerospace industry through three groups of operating segments: Triumph Aerostructures Group, whose companies' revenues are derived from the design, manufacture, of metallic and composite aerostructures and structural components; Triumph Aerospace Systems Group, and Triumph Aftermarket Services Group, whose companies serve aircraft fleets. In March 2013, United Technologies Corp sold the former Goodrich Corporation pump and engine control systems business to the Company. In May 2013, the Company announced the acquisition of Primus Composites from Precision Castparts Corp."
