Borders Group Issues Warrants to Pershing Square Consistent with Previously Announced Agreement

From their Press Release this morning. No more details as yet regarding what this will mean for the management of the company. The implications of this must have been anticipated given the lack of success in reorganizing their assets but it remains to be seen whether Pershing Square will seek more influence than they already have. This result does place them squarely in the drivers seat regarding Borders future.

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Oct. 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Consistent with a previously announced agreement, Borders Group, Inc.(NYSE: BGP) today issued warrants to Pershing Square Capital Management, L.P. to purchase an additional 5.15 million shares of the company's common stock exercisable at$7.00 per share, subject to anti-dilution adjustments. The warrants are exercisable until October 9, 2014. The agreement, dated April 9, 2008, is detailed in Borders Group's 8-K filing dated April 11, 2008.

We'll see if Borders ever gets back much over $7 per share!
