Marcato Capital Increases Life Time Fitness Stake

Mick McGuire's hedge fund firm Marcato Capital today filed an amended 13D with the SEC regarding their stake in Life Time Fitness (LTM).  Per the filing, Marcato has indicated they own 7.6% of the company now with over 3.11 million shares.  This is up from the 2.9 million shares they previously disclosed.

The filing notes that "On June 17th (Marcato) received notification granting their request for early termination of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended.  Following such notification, (Marcato) exercised options that they owned and purchased additional shares."
