PALO ALTO, Calif., June 6 (Reuters) - A small group of investors has taken an 11.45 percent
stake in troubled software maker Peregrine Systems Inc.(PRGN,Trade), according to a filing
made with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on Thursday.

St. Helena, California-based private investor Mark Nelson, along with Dana Johnson and the
Sine Nomine Foundation, purchased 22.04 million shares of Peregrine's common stock
between May 6 and June 4 for "general investment purposes, with no intent to alter the
management of the Issuer," according to the filing.

Several of the top corporate officers at San Diego-based Peregrine resigned earlier this week,
amid a federal regulatory probe into the software shop's accounting.

The company -- which sells software to help companies track their physical assets -- has seen
its stock fall from a year-high of $33.55 to a low of 73 cents.

Peregrine shares were down nearly 20 percent at $1.18 in Thursday afternoon trade on
