ValueAct Capital Reduces Alliance Data Systems Position

Jeff Ubben's activist firm ValueAct Capital has also filed both a Form 4 and a 13D with the SEC regarding its stake in Alliance Data Systems (ADS). 

ValueAct now only owns 2.7% of the company with a little over 1.377 million shares.  This is down from the 3.7 million they reported owning back at the end of Q2.
The Form 4 filing notes that ValueAct converted its previously disclosed 150,000 shares of Series A non-voting convertible preferred stock into 1.5 million shares of common stock.  The 13D also indicates that ValueAct sold 2 million ADS shares at $101.50 on October 28th and sold another 1.83 million shares at $102 the next day.

Per Yahoo Finance, Alliance Data Systems "provides data-driven marketing and loyalty solutions worldwide."
