"Leucadia National Corporation (the “Company”) has sold an aggregate of 92,400,000 common shares of Fortescue Metals Group Ltd (“Fortescue”) for aggregate cash proceeds of $609,220,000. The Company will report a net securities gain on the sale of the Fortescue shares of $527,351,000 during the second quarter of 2011.  Since the Company’s investment in Fortescue has been carried at market value with unrealized gains and losses recognized as a component of other comprehensive income, the change in consolidated shareholders’ equity from March 31, 2011 as a result of the sale is a decrease of $2,550,000.

 

The Company continues to hold approximately 4.99% of the outstanding shares of Fortescue."

 

$600 million more to look for good deals with any further financial/economic corrections.
