Exclusive: Activist Sachem Head pushes Zayo to explore sale - sources


By O'Donnell

(Reuters) - Activist hedge fund has written a letter to provider urging it to explore a sale, according to people familiar with the matter.

The letter, sent to the company this week, comes after Zayo has rejected acquisition offers from a private equity consortium including and Stonepeak Infrastructure Partners LP, the sources added, asking not to be named because the matter is private.

Sachem Head has not threatened to launch a proxy fight but that option remains on the table, the people said.

Sachem Head declined to comment. Zayo could not be reached for comment.
