FRANKFURT, Dec 5 (Reuters) - German energy company Uniper said on Tuesday that Paul Singer, founder of activist investment group Elliott Management, had acquired a stake of 5.32 percent in the company.
The holding comprised a voting equity stake of 2.39 percent, with a further 2.93 percent held through unspecified instruments, Uniper said in a regulatory filing.
