Harbinger Permanent Capital Vehicle Drastically Cuts Loss

May 11 2012 | 11:58am ET

Here’s some good news for a hedge fund that desperately needs some: Harbinger Capital Management's permanent capital vehicle cut its second-quarter loss.

Harbinger Group said yesterday that it lost $3.9 million in the three months ended April 1. In the year-earlier period, the vehicle lost $62 million.

Harbinger Group credited the results to its acquisition of Fidelity Guaranty & Life. The insurer contributed $359 million to Harbinger Group's $1.11 billion in revenue, the lion's share of the $416.1 million increase in that metric.

The vehicle added that its consumer product revenue—Harbinger Group owns the majority of Spectrum Brands Holdings—rose 8% in the quarter.
