"If management, which owns approximately 20 per cent of the company's shares, would like to continue its ambition of being a global department store consolidator, a management-led buyout could be an intriguing avenue to pursue for all parties", Litt said. The stock has a 50 day moving average price of $10.68 and a 200 day moving average price of $10.87.

In the letter, Litt called for a full review of capital expenditures and noted that without significant progress in better unlocking the estimated $10 billion in real estate assets on Hudson Bay's balance sheet, he would consider calling a special meeting of shareholders in order to nominate a slate of new board nominees.
