Private equity firm Catalyst now holds about 16% of Hudson's Bay shares -source
NEW YORK, Sept 10 (Reuters) - Catalyst Capital Group Inc now holds roughly 16% of Hudson's Bay Co HBC.TO shares after investors participated in its tender offer, bolstering the buyout firm's position against a take-private deal, a source familiar with the matter said on Tuesday.
Catalyst said in August it had acquired about 10% of the department store retailer's stock, but had not disclosed its initial stake. The private equity firm will continue opposing a C$1.74 billion offer from Hudson's Bay's executive chairman, Richard Baker, the source said.
Catalyst's total stake in the retailer has not yet been disclosed.
Hudson's Bay did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
