ELLIOTT MANAGEMENT, THE HEDGE FUND FIRM THAT OWNS WATERSTONES, WILL BUY BARNES AND NOBLE
I had missed the news while traveling in Europe and was literally getting off the boat in New York when it was announced on June 7th. Daunt, who manages Waterstones, will manage Barnes and Noble too. I was just in Waterstones in Piccadilly Circus London two days before the deal was made and took a few pictures of the store's book layout. (Nice.) The store entrance is behind the Piccadilly Circus bus stop.
