Building off of the momentum of past conferences, Golden Networking brings back Hedge Funds Leaders Forum 2012, "Getting Ready to Manage $5 Trillion by 2016", now in New York, Chicago and London
Aug. 21, 2012 - PRLog -- (July 31, 2012, New York) The Seattle Times reports that hedge fund titan Steven A. Cohen wants the board of Clearwater Paper to separate the Spokane-based company's consumer products from its pulp and paper operations so either or both can be sold off, according to a regulatory filing Friday.

Cohen's SAC Capital Advisors met with Clearwater's directors Thursday to urge they split the company and "pursue the divestiture of one or both businesses to one or more strategic and/or financial buyers," the SAC filing says. The fund also proposed hiring an investment bank to identify potential buyers, and expanding the six-member board with two new independent directors. SAC -- among the biggest and most successful hedge funds -- owns 1.6 million shares, or 7.1 percent, of Clearwater's stock.
