FRANKFURT Dec 6 (Reuters) - Activist shareholder Cevian Capital said it had increased its stake in German steel and engineering group Thyssenkrupp to 10.96 percent as part of Thyssen's recent cash call.
ThyssenKrupp this week raised 882 million euros ($1.2 billion) in a sale of new shares, to pursue a turnaround after it failed to sell a loss-making plant and was forced to take back two others.
