Lewis Signals Interest In Stopping Bear Deal

Recommended Posts

British billionaire Joseph Lewis, who has suffered huge losses on his stake in Bear Stearns Cos., hinted in a securities filing that he may try to round up other investors to torpedo the firm's proposed takeover by J.P. Morgan Chase & Co.

In the filing yesterday, Mr. Lewis also disclosed that he bought more shares of Bear shortly before its collapse. On March 13, just before J.P. Morgan and the Federal Reserve stepped in to keep Bear afloat, an entity affiliated with Mr. Lewis bought 569,000 shares of Bear Stearns at $55.13.
