Seritage: Special Situation Opportunity Happening Now With 'Near Term' Shareholder Value Creation To Follow
Seritage was a $40 stock pre-COVID with a price predicated on years of hard work that would be needed to reposition and re-develop assets to achieve that valuation. The largest shareholder (Eddie Lampert) initiated an SEC filing in November 2021, when shares ranged from $14.50 to $17, calling the shares "undervalued" as part of the filing. The bullish argument for Seritage has centered on the vast amount of asset value that can be unlocked over time. Most do not dispute the significant value of the assets. The bearish argument has always been that it will take too much time, and too much money, to unlock the value of the underlying assets owned by Seritage. In March of 2022, Seritage announced a strategic review that could involve selling the company, or selling certain assets, with the stated goal of the following: "We are committed to exploring a variety of opportunities to pull forward this value and deliver it to Seritage shareholders in the near-term". I believe we are about to witness fireworks and I also believe that investors who think value creation leads to a share price of only 50% above current levels (levels which the largest shareholder has called "undervalued") are in for a surprise. With over 20% of the stock still sold short, be prepared for massive upside as the plan to unlock value unfolds.
