Tiger may sell US Airways stake

TIGER MANAGEMENT, the huge New York City hedge fund, said is exploring a variety of ways to enhance shareholder value in US Airways, and it may sell all or part of its 22.4 per cent stake depending on certain factors. Alternatives may include "an extraordinary corporate transaction" such as a merger, sale or recapitalisation of the nation's sixth-largest airline, Tiger said in a filing with the US Securities and Exchange Commission. There is no assurance that Tiger will go ahead with any such plans or proposals, the hedge fund added.

Tiger "believes that the market valuation of the company does not reflect the intrinsic value of the business based on the strength of the company's franchise and current business position, its strong management team and strategic plans, it added.
