Third Avenue Management Comments on Forest City

September 12, 2013 | About:
Holly LaFon

The Fund's position in Forest City Common (FCY) was eliminated after its stock price nearly doubled since Third Avenue filed a 13D in October 2011. We were pleased that management delivered on several of the requests we made in our 13D filing, including divesting non-core assets, improving transparency and reducing debt. Given the resultant terrific stock price appreciation, Fund Management elected to sell and re-allocate the proceeds to the new opportunities discussed below. At quarter end, cash accounted for about 12% of the Fund's net assets.

From Third Avenue Management’s third quarter 2013 letter to shareholders.
