Elliott to push Marathon Petroleum for a break-up. (FS)
Elliott Management, Paul Singer’s activist hedge fund, has launched a second campaign to persuade Marathon Petroleum to remedy its “chronic underperformance” by splitting into three separate entities.
The $38.2bn hedge fund, which previously lobbied Marathon’s current management in late 2016, said the company should divide into a convenience store business, a midstream operator and an independent merchant refiner. The fund on Wednesday also called for a “comprehensive review” of Marathon’s governance, board, and management, FT reported.
Elliott, which owns a 2.5% economic interest in the company, said Marathon’s board failed to keep an earlier promise to consider splitting off its convenience store business seriously, and instead acquired another oil refiner, Andeavor, further expanding its conglomerate structure. In a letter to Marathon’s board, Elliott portfolio managers John Pike and Phillip Zeigler said: “shareholders continue to suffer, prompting our letter and presentation today.” The units have “little to no synergy value” and could be better managed separately, they said.
