Elliott Advisors closes acquisition of Barnes & Noble

Funds advised by Elliott Management Corp. unit Elliott Advisors (UK) Ltd. have successfully completed the acquisition of Barnes & Noble Inc., according to an Aug. 7 release.

In June, Elliott Advisors agreed to buy Barnes & Noble in a deal worth about $683 million, including the assumption of debt.
