The top leadership of Deephaven Capital Management has exercised its option to buy nearly half of the $4.4 billion hedge fund firm from its parent company, according to a Friday regulatory filing.
CEO Colin Smith and principals Shailesh Vasundhra and Matt Nunn will take a 49% stake in Minnetonka, Minn.-based Deephaven, which is owned by Jersey City, N.J.-based Knight Capital Group.
Under the terms of the deal, Deephaven will split half its pretax earnings up to $60 million with Deephaven, and share in 25% of any profits above $60 million. The purchase is expected to close on Feb. 1.
The move comes as no surprise, as Smith told Deephaven investors in September that he, Vasundhra and Nunn would likely exercise the option.
