Maverick Capital Discloses Castlight Health Position

Lee Ainslie's hedge fund firm Maverick Capital has filed a Form 3 and Form 4 with the SEC disclosing a new position in Castlight Health (CSLT). 

Castlight just recently completed its initial public offering (IPO) and shares surged from the IPO price of $16 up to $40 on its first day of trading. 

The Form 4 indicates Maverick acquired 450,000 shares of class B stock at a price of $16 on March 19th.  The Form 3 they filed indicates that each share of class A common stock (which Maverick owns) is convertible into one share of class B common stock at any time after the IPO. 

And after the IPO was complete, each share of Series A preferred stock, Series B preferred stock, Series A-1 preferred stock, Series C preferred stock and Series D preferred stock convert automatically into class A common stock.

Maverick owned stakes in all of those share classes according to the Form 3.  So after all is said and done after the IPO, the main takeaway is that Maverick owns a stake in the newly public Castlight Health.

Per Yahoo Finance, Castlight Health is a company that "offers health information via the internet to inform medical choices and reduce insurance costs."
