(Adds names of other shareholders)
BOSTON May 12 William Ackman plans to
communicate with other Allergan shareholders after the
Botox maker on Monday rebuffed a bid to be bought by the
billionaire investor and Valeant Pharmaceuticals.
In a regulatory filing on Monday, Ackman's hedge fund
Pershing Square Capital Management said that it has requested a
complete list of holders of record in Allergan to be able to
"communicate with fellow stockholders of the company."
Ackman wrote to Allergan Associate General Counsel Matthew
Maletta and asked that the company turn over the list within
five business days. Institutional investors The Vanguard Group,
State Street Global Advisors and BlackRock are also among the
top 10 holders of Allergan stock, according to ThomsonReuters
Other hedge fund owners of Allergan include Visium Asset
Management and Viking Global Investors, the data show.
Valeant and Pershing Square, which has a stake of almost 10
percent in Allergan, made an unsolicited cash and stock offer
for the company in April.
