Pennant Capital Discloses BFC Financial Position

Alan Fournier's hedge fund firm Pennant Capital has filed a 13G with the SEC regarding shares of BFC Financial Corp (BFCF).  Per the filing, Pennant now owns 3.94% of the company with 2,985,600 shares. 

This is the first time they've disclosed a position in this security.  The filing was required due to portfolio activity on December 4th.

Pennant also recently has decided to return some investor capital.  They join the likes of Baupost Group and Appaloosa Management (where Fournier previously worked) in the ranks of hedge funds that have sent capital back to investors.

Per Google Finance, BFC Financial is "a holding company whose principal holdings include controlling interests in Bluegreen Corporation and BBX Capital Corporation. The Company’s objective is to create long-term value for its shareholders through profitable growth of its portfolio companies and appreciation in the value of its investments. The Company has invested in or acquired businesses in a variety of industries. BBX Capital Corporation is a diversified investment and asset management company. In April 2013, Bluegreen Corporation completes merger with subsidiary of the Company, Woodbridge Holdings, LLC (Woodbridge)."
