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

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