Feinberg, 56, who is chief executive policemanceo of Cerberus Capital Management LP, offered 17.4 million shares this week and now owns 24.1 million shares of the Detroit-based firm, according to a governing filing Wednesday. That brings his stake from 8.6 percent to just listed below 5 percent, the level that requires reporting ownership to the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Institutional Investor Solutions last month advised Ally shareholders to vote versus members of the board’s audit committee over a company policy that enables Feinberg to promise the shares, which means they can be providedprovided to a loan provider to protect a debt. Ally’s financiers on Tuesday authorized the business’s whole slate of directors, with those on the audit committee receiving a lower portion of tallies cast.
“Pledging of business stock by directors or executive policemans can posture a threat to the investments of outside investors, James Miller, an analyst at Institutional Investor Services, said in an April 16 report. “Directors and executives with a pledged position may be compelled to sell business stock, he said, which might impact the rate.
