Pirate Capital Founder Back With New Firm

Feb 26 2010 | 2:35pm ET

He’s abandoned his Pirate ship, but Tom Hudson still has a taste for gold.

The Pirate Capital founder Tom Hudson has launched a new hedge fund, Doubloon Capital, and is fundraising for several new funds. The famed activist investor’s new firm will, like Pirate, focus on stressed and distressed companies, according to The Wall Street Journal. Doubloon will shy away from technology, telecommunications and “asbestos-tainted” companies, with investing in industrials, real-estate investment trusts, retailers and casino companies.

“While a rising tide lifts all ships, a falling tide can be treacherous for a ship in shallow water,” Doubloon writes in marketing documents. “Value investing is all about identifying intrinsically 'cheap' companies. The direction of the macro environment, the tide, often will determine the value realization for undervalued companies.”

Doubloon will charge 2% for management and 20% for performance.
